Green Building Materials Overview
Over sixty percent of homes built in the U.S. use structural building components. Components have revolutionized light-framed construction since their inception in 1952.
If your project is a LEEDs points project, using preassembled components will maximize the amount of points you can earn. This will help you achieve the upper levels of certification as LEEDs Gold or Silver
Another important certification for green building is FSC. Builders earn LEED points based on the percentage of FSC certified products used in their project. National Lumber, parent company of Reliable Truss, is FSC certified. Speak to a Reliable Truss or National Lumber representative about how you can purchase FSC certified lumber.
