The average builder uses 10 different green products and practices
from Eye On Housing
On average, single-family builders use 10.2 different green products or practices, and 22 percent always or almost always have their homes certified to a green standard, according to a recent NAHB survey. The survey consisted of special questions on the January survey for the NAHB/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index. A total of 337 single-family builders responded to these questions, one of which asked if builders commonly used any of 21 specific green products and practices on homes they built during the past year. The list of 21 was drawn primarily from the major sections of the National Green Building Standard.
