Maze Nails Fully Endorses The Leed Green Building Rating System

 
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System represents the U.S. Green Building Council’s effort to provide a national standard for what constitutes “green” buildings and homes.

Through its use as a design guideline and third-party certification tool, LEED® and LEED® for Homes aim to improve occupant well-being, environmental performance and economic returns of buildings and homes using established and innovative practices, standards and technologies. Green homes and buildings use less energy, water and natural resources, create less waste and are healthier and more comfortable for the occupants.

Benefits of a LEED® home or building include lower energy and water bills, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and less exposure to mold, mildew and other indoor toxins. The LEED® building rating system has been established to evaluate every aspect of the construction process and building components used in new and existing buildings. While the main emphasis is on energy efficiency, conservation and the overall “health” of the building, the use of ”green” products contributes favorably to the overall rating of a building.

Maze Nails fully endorses the LEED® Green Building Rating System and using Maze Nails will earn points toward LEED® Certification.

Maze Nails are an environmentally preferable product so builders and remodelers seeking to comply with the LEED® Building Program will earn points in the materials and resources (recycled content), low emissions and/or local production categories.
