Fly Ash Bricks
Not only are fly ash bricks environmentally safe, they are also three times as strong as conventional bricks. These bricks can help you conserve up to 50 percent of energy with an outstanding characteristic that makes your walls warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Eco-friendly paints do not emit any chemicals and are available in a wide variety of colors for the environmentally conscious home owner. The paints undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they are eco-friendly.
