The green building movement is thriving! No, we don’t mean the color green…
Green Building = Sustainable Design
Sustainable Design is defined as: The intention of sustainable design is to “eliminate negative environmental impact completely through skillful, sensitive design”.
KWP leads the way in ecologically-conscious manufacturing of engineered wood siding and trimboard. KWP has implemented stringent and effective measures to minimize our energy consumption in our eleven manufacturing plants and distribution centers across North America.
The wood we use to manufacture wood siding and trimboard contains 100% pre-consumer recycled content. Besides being EPP certified and conforming to CCMC and ANSI standards, wood has negligible emission levels, exceeding norms in North America, Europe and Asia. These unique green features make our wood siding the only siding choice on the market that can easily help homeowners, architects and builders LEED certify their projects.
Design with a purpose
Green buildings consume less energy and fewer resources. Many homeowners are realizing that one of the most significant ways they can directly reduce their carbon footprint is by living in a LEED certified home. Green homes will not only impact the environment positively, they will also increase savings on your monthly utility bills.
LEED homes use non-toxic materials, drastically reduce the amount of allergens and are designed to create a proper balance between heating and cooling systems thus providing the homeowner comfort and peace of mind.
From choosing Energy Star rated Windows to selecting Eco-friendly siding such as engineered wood siding, there are many ways you can transform your home into a green home. Find out more about how our products can contribute to LEED certification HERE!
