LEED Certified

Buildings and products that have LEED certification are made in a sustainable way. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, an organization created by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED helps promote the construction of buildings and homes that are mindful to the environment. For example, a LEED certified home could be one that is powered primarily by solar energy, and built intentionally in the direction of incoming sunlight.

Other ways to get LEED certified could include installing floors, countertops, cabinets and banisters made with recycled content. Waste is an important factor when building in an eco-friendly way. You can reduce waste by purchasing an exact amount of flooring materials. Minimize future waste by choosing a floor surface that is expected to last longer than other floor types (e.g. buy linoleum opposed to vinyl). Another way to divert waste from the landfill is by choosing a floor that can be recycled at the end of its useful life.

LEED certification is not something that should be taken lightly. In fact, a great deal of research and time can go into getting a building certified by a LEED specialist. While it can be somewhat tricky to ensure that everything is built in a sustainable way, the end result is well worth it. A LEED certified home offers benefits such as healthier indoor air quality (IAQ) and a more efficient way of life. Plus, it can help you save money on your electricity bill! Visit LEED's website and get more ideas on sustainable living.

i just installed solar panels on my roof. im slowly progressing into turning my home into an eco-friendly/Green home. i am planning on installing new bamboo floors soon. Does LEED certification apply to newly built homes or can LEED come into my home and certify it once I make it eco-friendly? just curious
