Green Building Materials Quick Facts
green building industry When it comes to green building materials there are a few things to remember:
  • Solvent based coatings, like asphalt or rubber, can be highly explosive and contain non green building materials or V.O.C's such as exilene, naphtha, paint thinner, ammonia and toelene.

  • If non green building materials are used for waterproofing a foundation, they may seep into the surrounding environment making site conditions volatile, hazardous and environmentally unsafe.

  • Water and solvents or non green building materials don't mix and can cause a huge mess if haphazardly released. The E.P.A (Environmental Protection Agency) can fine thousands of dollars to the person or company responsible for a spill.

  • Green building materials save the environment and make your home safer for your family


Waterproofing Insulating Concrete Forms

So, is it possible to have green building materials as your foundation and waterproofing while providing your home with the protection it needs?

The answer is Yes!
