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, including roofing and roofing accessories, ventilation products, and siding. The microsite is designed around the full lifespan of a structure, detailing the many ways that 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, the site includes submittal info for property owners and project teams, including the GAF LEED Playbook and ecoScorecard 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, as well as listings of GAF products that meet CRRC, ENERGY STAR, and Title 24 requirements. Additionally, free access to the Green Building Certification Institute accredited course, “Asphalt Shingles and the Green Home” is provided.
