EarthCraft Renovation sets standards for renovations or additions to existing homes, enabling them to increase efficiency and maximize performance. EarthCraft Renovation also assists homeowners and builders in identifying and addressing the causes of common problems like uncomfortable rooms, high energy bills, poor indoor air quality and combustion safety issues. These concerns are all addressed during the renovation process.
To achieve EarthCraft certification, a proposed renovation must meet program criteria via a third-party verification process. Similar to other EarthCraft programs, EarthCraft Renovation projects are evaluated using a points-based worksheet and diagnostic testing procedures. EarthCraft Technical Advisors facilitate the process, providing technical assistance to the builder throughout construction, including the initial assessment.
