Greening the Building Shell

“Way beyond VOCs, recycled content and driving hybrids, by far the greenest thing you can do is design a high-integrity thermal envelope so your structure consumes as little fuel as possible for heating and cooling,” according to an article in Residential Design & Build magazine.

Beyond using non-toxic, sustainably harvested materials that don’t consume a great deal of fuel when ship, RD&B mag explores the ways you can “green the shell” when it comes to roofing, air filtration, insulation, adhesives, caulks, sealants, wood and more.

RD&B also cautions, “for framing and sheathing, use certified lumber.” Know that Schutte has passed the  rigorous process of becoming an FSC Chain of Custody certified supplier. We provide the certified products our customers require for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified projects.
