GreenGuard and Green Building

Britton Lumber GreenGuardWhether you consider it Green Building or just good building practices, energy efficient and water managed walls are a sensible and smart goal of design. GreenGuard products help you achieve this goal. Our XPS (extruded polystyrene) products provide superior moisture resistance. They won't absorb water, are not a food source for mold, and are not subject to moisture-related damage or deterioration, which means they retain their insulating properties over time. Our building wraps and flashings also help to protect the wall against water penetration and damage, and the wraps serve as an air barrier, enhancing thermal performance.

Several organizations, such as ENERGY STAR, NAHB (National Association of Home Builders), and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), are at the core of the Green Building movement. These groups have initiated certification programs and guidelines that qualify building materials and practices as meeting or exceeding Green Building standards. Using GreenGuard products qualifies your structures for points under the NAHB Green Building Guidelines and the LEED-H and LEED systems.

LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Green GuardGreenGuard XPS Insulation Products reduce building energy demand, dependent upon the amount of insulation used. GreenGuard Building Wraps reduce unwanted air infiltration into the wall cavity, thus helping to protect the insulative wall properties. All GreenGuard insulation products contain at least 30% post-industrial recycled content. All GreenGuard building wraps contain at least 5% post-industrial recycled content.
