    Hardscaping for Energy-Efficient Homes

    Hardscape refers to hard landscape materials in the built environment structures that are incorporated into a landscape. A well-designed hardscape not only can add beauty to your home but also can reduce your heating and cooling costs. Just a few simple considerations when hardscaping your home and property can make a big difference in your comfort and the efficiency of your heating and cooling systems. Per instance, Paving under windows that face the sun can increase the heat in a room, as the sun bounces off the paving and through the glass or Eco-friendly pavers refer to pavers that are permeable. This means that instead of water runoff occurring on your driveway, the pavers will allow water to pass through the pavers and seep into the grounds. Request Your Free Consultation

      What Are Turfstone Pavers?

      Turfstone permeable grid pavers are also called grass pavers, grass pavement or turf pavers and are an attractive option that allows owners of commercial or residential properties to balance their need for load-bearing surfaces with their desire for attractive landscaping. The unique design of Turfstone™ allows rainwater to be gradually filtered back into the soil naturally, resulting in the control and stabilization of soil erosion.

      I've been pleased with this solar company. Had solar installed 1 years ago. The process was seamless, very little effort on my part. Based on my research, they had the best price per kWh and surprisingly they have good follow up. I haven't needed to call them about anything but they do reach out to customers to ensure no issues which is nice. I'd recommend them.

      Excellent company. Nicholas did a great job. Solid communication and smooth install experience. It has been a year and I am very happy with how much money I am saving. Solar is the way to go. It's a no-brainer.

      This company is the real deal. When I first looked on their website I was impressed with how well put together the information is. I decided to call in a get a quote for solar panels. The saleswoman, David was extremely knowledgeable and transparent with me regarding pricing and the whole solar process. The process was perfect and this company does the best they can to keep their customers happy.

      So far I am very happy with my installation. The price beat all the other quotes that we've gotten in the area and the quality is unmatched! My point of contact was Asaf and he was amazing! He walked us through the entire process and had solutions for any concern that we brought up. He made it a very smooth transaction overall! I'll definitely be referring friends and family to NRG Upgrade!

      I requested a quote on Yelp. Levi showed up on time with a briefcase, and wearing a mask. He climbed up on a ladder and checked out both the roof and attic. The consultation went thoroughly. He explained the materials, working process, and answered any question we had. The quote was reasonable. My city had a delay in processing permit due to COVID-19. Levi and Myra are patient and kept us posted. Once we got the permit, NRG upgrade started the project immediately. All crews work in a timely manner as they promised. We noticed one rafter didn't touch the fascia board. Levi worked his best to remedy it. We had all rotted wood, facia boards, and a rafter replaced with no extra charge. Although there are some minor issues about cleaning and damaged items, overall we are very pleased with the new roof. Levi is professional, reliable, and up front. I would definitely recommend working with him.

      NRG pulled off what seemed to be impossible. I was so impressed with the determination these guys had. The completed job on time speaks for itself. From the sales team to the inspection these guys were on time and on budget. Skylight’s are not easy business but NRG made it painless. The friendly staff was always there to help with questions during the job. Estimate was spot on. They were safe and respected our home. I don’t look forward to any roofing stuff but when it does happen I call NRG. Good luck !

      My dad made me go on yelp and search for a good solar company for our new house we recently moved to, I gave him a few names and he called them up asking for quotes and such. Then, as he chose NRG( for many good reasons that I actually saw myself in person) they came out to do the work, I was so glad he chose them. They were respectful of all our things in and around our house, they talked us through the process before they started and they were super nice too. My dad is satisfied and so am I, especially that its a big job but cost efficient in the future for us!
