Moonworks Now A Certified Green Roofer
GAF® awards Moonworks Home Improvement with Certified Green Roofer Designation
WOONSOCKET, RHODE ISLAND (05/25/2011) – Moonworks Home Improvement is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the prestigious Certified Green Roofer designation from GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America. The GAF Certified Green Roofer program was designed in consultation with the US Green Building Council in order to recognize leading roofing companies for their commitment to sustainable business practices.
As part of the designation process, Moonworks has participated in USGBC-approved training on the many important contributions the roofing system makes to a green home, including the advanced technology behind cool roofing; techniques for improving indoor air quality via proper attic ventilation; preparing a roof for solar energy; and asphalt shingle recycling. Additionally, Moonworks has made a commitment to running a sustainable jobsite and has agreed to participate in their local USGBC chapter to continue enhancing their knowledge of green building practices.
“We are so excited to be one of the first GAF Certified Green Roofers in the area”, says Jim Moon, President of Moonworks. “It’s fantastic to think that with the hundreds of roofs we do in a year; the majority of that old roofing material will not end up in a land fill but recycled to become roadways.” He adds, “What a great program to be a part of! I am so proud of our entire team for taking the extra training and effort to earn the ‘Green Roofer Certification’.”
Few major building systems contribute to green building in as many ways as the roof does. A professionally installed asphalt shingle roofing system from Moonworks can increase your home’s durability by controlling moisture, help improve energy efficiency, support renewable energy, and help to improve indoor air quality and reduce the risk of ice dams via proper attic ventilation. And at the end of its long service life, asphalt shingle roofing is widely recycled into asphalt pavement, meaning that in many cases your old roof can become a new road.
Moonworks has been providing Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut homeowners with outstanding service for over 17 years. Our product line includes: Gutter Helmet® Gutter Protection, Renewal by Andersen® Replacement Windows and Doors, Mastic® home siding, GAF® roofing, Owens Corning® insulation and Repower Home™ renewable energy.
