LEED® For Homes

The United States Green Building Council developed the LEED® Green Building Rating System in 1998. Today it's the nationally accepted benchmark for high-performance green building. Builders who attain LEED® certification may also qualify for government incentives.

LEED® for Homes is a voluntary rating system that promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes, including affordable housing, mass-production homes, custom designs, stand-alone single-family homes, duplexes and townhouses, suburban and urban apartments, and condominiums and lofts in historic buildings.

Our products can help you earn LEED® credits in the following categories:

  • Innovation & Design: ID 2.1 (c) Indoor Moisture Control
  • Sustainable Site: SS 3.2 Light Colored Hardscapes
  • Materials and Resources (MR): MR 2.2 Evironmentally Preferable Materials
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ): IEQ 8.2 Indoor Contaminant Control

We also offer an unmatched wealth of online tools that make it easier for you to determine how each one of our products can help achieve LEED® credits.

Our site now allows architects and designers the ability to create and download project specific LEED® certification letters.
