Wayne, N.J.-based GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, has announced an update of its GAF Green Central microsite -- the destination for sustainability information on all the company’s product lines.
Those lines include roofing and roofing accessories, ventilation products and siding. The microsite is designed around the full lifespan of a structure, detailing how a roofing product can contribute to ‘greening’ that structure throughout its service life from production to recycling.
In order to be most useful to design professionals, gaf.com/green includes submittal info for property owners and project teams, including the GAF LEED Playbook and ecoScorecardSM submittal tool. The site also has resources for those preparing for the next generation of green building codes, such as a template Construction Waste Management Plan, information on membrane and asphalt shingle recycling, and links to a number of helpful roofing industry resources. Additionally, free access to the Green Building Certification Institute accredited course ‘Asphalt Shingles and the Green Home’ is available at the site.
