As a leader in the Houston roofing/home improvement community, we set the bar high in every aspect of our business. We’ve built a reputation on providing customers with top quality products installed by highly trained professionals. And we’ve also made a commitment to operating our company in as “green” a capacity as possible. A big part of that commitment is working with suppliers who share our concern for sustainability. As we discussed in the first of two blogs on this important subject, the home remodeling/construction industry is at the forefront of the green trend. Working with suppliers who place a similar emphasis on sustainability is a high priority for Live Oak. In this case, we are proud to partner with GAF. GAF offers top quality roofing products AND has made the kind of commitment to sustainability that we look for in a supplier.
GAF has made sustainability a top priority in every possible way. It has taken huge efforts to find supply sources that utilize recycled content. GAF then takes those materials and turns into the products we use at Live Oak. Live Oak passes those greener roofing products on to you, our customer!
GAF is proud to have made the “Zero Waste to Landfill” commitment. This is an ongoing challenge for manufacturing facilities to decrease or eliminate what leaves their plant and ends up in a landfill. GAF has TWO facilities that have achieved Zero Waste to Landfill status, meaning materials that enter the plant as part of the manufacturing process are totally used, reused or recycled. Everything ends up in the final product or stays in the facility. The plant adds NOTHING to the local waste stream or landfill…a HUGE achievement!
Live Oak Construction is making sustainability a priority by working with suppliers and manufacturers like GAF that share our commitment to the environment. Has your family become more “green”? How has this changed the way you live and work? Share your tips, advice, best practices and we will all learn from each other as we navigate the journey to more green lifestyles!
