Read more about our sustainability practices
We work with a lot of wood panels and so we make sure to use substrates that are manufactured with 100% recycled wood.
Wood that is certified as harvested from responsibly managed and sustainable forests.
NAUF and CARB
No Added Urea Formaldahyde (NAUF) in our wood and our materials meet the California Air Resource Board (CARB) standards.
Materials can be part of LEED certification Materials and Resources (MR) credits.
We maximize our use of wood with digital design and sophisticated machinery to assure minimal waste and energy efficiency.
All factories have a recycling program for wood, paper, glass, plastics, and other materials.
Our manufacturers of wood products use fast-growing, underutilized wood residuals that either make composite panels or sent to biomass cogeneration plants to create energy.
We feature several products that are 100% sustainable and rapidly renewable, and prefer those that practice and manage sustainable forestlands.
We demonstrate our commitment by purchasing at least 50% CPA EPP certified composite wood products.
Supporting The New American Home Projects with state-of-the-art home building technology.
Facilities Air Quality
We reduce airborne particles by using dust collectors and reduce off gas by using water-based stains and paints.
Many locations have participated in platinum and emerald LEED certified projects and VATSU living organic green homes.
