The Benefits of the Green Circle Certification

With the growth and development of various communities, most builders focus on using green building materials. Building and construction activities use three billion tons of materials each year. Using green building materials helps promote the conservation of non-renewable sources and limit your home’s environmental impact. Recently, GAF, the premier roofing manufacturer in the country, was awarded the Green Circle certification. Tusing Builders and Roofing Services discusses this award and how it benefits homeowners in detail.


The Green Circle Certification

GAF’s EnergyGuard™ Polyiso Insulation Board was certified by GreenCircle Certified, a company that verifies the percentage of recycled content in a product. Their dedication to innovation has made GAF the first roofing manufacturer to achieve this designation. The company’s polyiso roof insulation has the highest R-value, the measurement for a material’s insulating effectiveness, per inch among all rigid foam boards.

The added environmental benefit of using green roofing products like this makes them a favored choice for professionals. This type of certification of environmental claims increases the value of a product in green building systems like LEED®, and it also gives you the assurance that our advertised percentage of recycled materials are completely accurate and transparent.
