GREEN BUILDING PRACTICES
More and more homeowners, builders, municipalities, and government agencies are embracing green standards for their construction projects to help preserve our environment. PABCO® Roofing Products can help by providing products that contribute to green certifications, such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). LEED certified buildings are not only good for the planet but can also help occupants save money through reduced energy and water bills. Within the LEED Rating Systems for the various types of construction, there are multiple opportunities for shingles from PABCO® Roofing Products to contribute to LEED rating points. Among these opportunities are the Heat Island factor when using of our Premier Radiance® Elite or Premier Radiance® highly reflective shingles, by consideration of the LEED preference for Regional Materials, or by factoring our recycled content into the recycled content of the whole building.
