Green® Contributes to "Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design" certification
Over 100 Custom products help contribute to LEED®
certification in at least one of three categories.
Products with low Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's)
Low VOC emitting materials contribute to indoor environmental
quality. EQc4.1 & 4.2 Low VOC Emitting Materials.
Custom Building Products uses post-consumer and pre-consumer
recycled materials whenever possible in manufacturing our tile and
stone installation products. Utilizing recycled materials helps
conserve natural resources and reduce the amount of waste sent to
landfills. The use of lightweight recycled glass in our
CustomLite® products helps to conserve energy because
these products require less fuel for transport. MRc4 Recycled
Regional Product Manufacturing
Local manufacturing and raw materials are harvested from within
500 miles of the project site. Eleven locations throughout the
country means that most projects are within this range. MRc5
