Summerland roofer receives green designation

A Summerland construction company has received Certified Green Roofer designation.

A Summerland construction company has received Certified Green Roofer designation from GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America.

Valley Wide Home Improvements Ltd. received the designation last week.

As part of the designation process, the company participated in training on green roofing technology including the contributions the roofing system makes to a green home, techniques for improving indoor air quality through proper attic ventilation, preparing a roof for solar energy and asphalt shingle recycling.

“Achieving Certified Green Roofer status is another proud accomplishment for us here at Valley Wide Home Improvements Ltd. in our continuing drive to raise the bar of professionalism in the Okanagan roofing industry,” said David Gottwald, president of the construction business.

He said some of the green roofing methods, such as separating his wastes for the landfill, are more expensive and time consuming, but will be better decisions.

“It comes with more effort, but it will serve me well in the long run,” he said.
