Joe Stoffey, the owner of Green Eco Solutions, remembers when he bought his first house how vulnerable he felt when it came to upgrading his home with contractors. He didn't know much about product specification or even which products to buy, so he felt very in the dark during the whole process.
Joe expressed interest in learning more about the home contracting industry from his father-in-law who has a business in the field. Since Joe was pretty handy his father-in-law agreed and Joe took some vacation time from work to make the most of the opportunity.
He called and met with customers, installed products, and visited manufacturers to better understand the products he would be offering. Joe recalls the experience as pivotal:
“I knew this was for me. Over time when I revisited those homeowners, I learned that some who bought quality products still had high heating and electric bills. That’s when I decided to study the connection between house systems and energy conservation.”
In 1988 Joe opened a small office with one employee. He made energy saving home improvement his mission, earning certifications as Owens Corning Energy Expert and Home Energy Professional (HEP) Energy Auditor from the Building Performance Institute (BPI), supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and Association of Energy Service Professionals membership.
Green Eco Solutions continued to grow and now boasts over 40 employees, some who have been with the company for over 20 years. Joe's ongoing commitment to helping homeowners make informed decisions that benefit their homes, the environment, and the local economy allow him to provide much-needed jobs for the Lehigh Valley.
Joe is known in the community for his dedication to his customers as well as his employees. Joe is still as hands-on with the business as ever, filling in for crew members who need time off and installing roofs alongside his employees. Joe ensures homeowners receive what they need when they need it.
Joe and the whole team at Green Eco Solutions believe in quality products, attention to detail, and warranties homeowners can rely on. After 30 years in the industry, Joe has high standards and believes in giving his customers the same quality and service he himself expects for his own home!
