With the onset of the new year, we would like to highlight one of the certifications we received: GAF’s Green Roofing Contractor Certification.
How We Became a Certified Green Roofer™
As a GAF Master Elite contractor, Pro Roofing & Siding was eligible to work towards this specialized certification. In order to attain it, we had to prove that we were ready; ready, as a roofing business, to promote a comprehensive sustainability practices – including the highly-publicized recycling of asphalt shingles. We also took a course providing the ins and outs of “Asphalt Shingles and the Green Home.”
What it means
Our GAF Certification qualifies us for membership on the US Green Building Council’s (USGBC) homeowner site. This website serves as a hub for visitors to interact with companies – asking questions about green building practices and making connections with some of the the best contractors in the nation.
Our involvement with GAF gives us access to a local USGBC chapter, where we meet to network with fellow professionals in our locale to discuss the newest, best practices in green building.
Why Did We Reach This Goal?
When it comes right down to it, however, we reached out to attain this level of certification because we care about the homeowners we serve. We want to be a roofing business that carries out ethical, green, eco-friendly practices that will benefit our area for years to come.
When you see us post blogs about energy efficiency options, shingle recycling, insulation, and ventilation – it all stems from our commitment to green building practices, and carrying this out in our everyday roofing projects.
