LEED Certification Details
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a widely used green whole-building certification rating system to encourage the construction of energy-efficient buildings. Metal roofing plays a pivotal role in meeting LEED requirements for certification points.
Englert metal roofs contribute to reducing building energy consumption - they’re more reflective than asphalt roof systems so they prevent more of the sun’s energy from being absorbed. They’re also an ideal platform for integrating photovoltaic and solar thermal renewable energy solutions.
Englert’s metal roof systems are exceptional building materials that can credibly claim both recycled content and recyclability. This is especially important since LEED points are available when specifying metal roofing (including one point for recycled content). Metal roofing is also 100% recyclable when removed for renovation or demolition.
