Green vs. LEED Compliant

If your building is LEED certified or if you’re in the process of achieving certification you likely already know, you must use environmentally friendly products and processes when refinishing the metal, stone or wood in your building. Many of these products are tested and endorsed by a non-profit agency called Green Seal, however some product manufacturers choose not to get their product Green Seal certified, because of the cost involved. They are still however, eco-friendly and are able to be used in LEED certified buildings. Here are some fast facts about our LEED compliance.

  • LEED compliant/low VOC/sustainable products are the majority of our supply usage. Mid America Metals always uses LEED compliant products if they are available on the market.
  • Our products do not generally fall under the Green Seal certification standards but this does not imply they are not LEED compliant or eco-friendly. Green Seal may never develop standards for many of the products used by our industry.

Now with some important basic LEED certification knowledge, and a better understanding of our commitment to providing your building with the best care and results, call our restoration experts to get started restoring your building.
