Green ordinances present new building standards and unique opportunities
The recent passage of green legislation and numerous local green building ordinances is not a trend. These changes reflects society’s adaptation to a changing environmental, economic and political landscape. As the economy begins to improve, the development community can expect to see more comprehensive and demanding green requirements.

Home Improvements Lecture series offered free to South Jersey homeowners
CHERRY HILL, N.J. March 21, 2011 – As warmer weather approaches and homeowners begin making plans for their home maintenance and improvement projects, the Builders League of South Jersey Remodelers Council is cautioning the public to conduct the necessary background checks on any contractors they hire to work on their homes.
The Builders League Remodelers Council is offering a Home Improvements Lecture series free to any neighborhood or community group or municipality in Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties. The hour-long lecture will review the New Jersey Home Improvement Contractors Registration Act, how to search for a remodeler, what to look for, references, evaluating your remodeler choices, reviewing the contract and how to be a good neighbor during a remodeling project.
“People work their whole lives to own a decent home that they’re proud to come home to. Yet, it is so frustrating to us when we hear story after story about owners who have been taken by contractors that either didn’t do the job properly or weren’t professional in their business practices,” said Remodelers Council President Bill Cappuccio of MarJam Supply. “Often times these complaints are against companies that aren’t even registered as a Home Improvement Contractor. The homeowners didn’t know how to do the necessary background checks. They didn’t know what to ask. That’s frustrating to professional contractors, too.”
