Sustainability ensures the future of the environment, and your business. That’s why System Components® products are engineered to be environmentally responsible. To determine the environmental responsibility of a structure, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) have each established rating systems (NGBP1 and LEED2). A higher rating denotes a healthier home at a lower cost to the environment. So how can System Components products contribute to raising your ratings and lowering your environmental impact?

  • System Components products are termite- and water-resistant, reducing structure degradation from the elements and enhancing longevity.
  • System Components products contain no asphalt and are 100% recyclable in regions with established recycling programs.
  • System Components products are more stable in wetting cycles than traditional roofing felt.
  • System Components products may contain up to 10% recycled material.
  • Because System Components products weigh less than conventional underlayments, there is less transportation pollution than traditional underlayment materials.
  • System Components products weigh less than Type 30 felt or other asphalt-saturated underlayments and comes in efficient sizes to help reduce construction waste.

The decision to use System Components products is not only an investment in the future of the environment, it’s also an investment for the future of your business. As the demand for sustainable home construction grows, so does the need for environmentally responsible builders. The forward-thinking builder who begins practicing sustainability today is well-positioned to be a leader of the industry tomorrow.
