Why You Can Be Certain of CertainTeed
CertainTeed is a leader in sustainable building, and as a member of the US Green Building Council, CertainTeed works to develop, promote, and provide sustainable design solutions across the construction industry. It’s a trusted producer in the green building movement for the following reasons:
It has outside endorsement. Many CertainTeed products have third-party certifications from groups like GreenCircle. Certifications like this signify that CertainTeed’s products have high durability and an efficient production process and that they meet other standards for sustainable production.
It takes the LEED. CertainTeed produces materials for LEED-certified building projects. LEED is a nationally recognized standard for the design, construction, and operation of “green” buildings. LEED certification is meant to reward design initiatives that promote responsible and high-efficiency energy consumption with minimal environmental impact.
It values education and innovation. While CertainTeed strives to be a name consumers can trust, it also serves as a resource for building professionals. CertainTeed offers education and certification programs that qualify for credits with the US Green Building Council, whose aim is to help keep building professionals up-to-date on best practices and new innovations.
