Paul Eldrenkamp is both the owner of Byggmeister, a Newton-based remodeling company, and principal of DEAP Energy Group, a consulting firm specializing in Deep Energy Retrofits (renovations that achieve energy savings of at least 50%). He will explain the cause of ice dams, their connection to climate change and what you can do about both.
Paul says his “mission is to design, build and maintain homes that are functional, beautiful, cost-effective and environmentally responsible. We have put environmental stewardship at the center of our services—and not just because it’s good for the planet…
Sustainable homes aren’t just environmentally beneficial; they also reduce maintenance and energy costs, improve air quality and comfort, and, through good design, are better able to meet the changing needs of occupants over time.”
