In addition to having earned SCS's EPP certification and the UL GREENGUARD Gold Certification the treatment process used in the production of YellaWood® brand products has earned the Home Innovation NGBS Green Certification.
By using YellaWood® brand products in above ground, ground contact, fresh water immersion and critical structure end uses, architects, specifiers, homebuilders, and contractors are eligible to receive up to 17 points toward a building being certified under the National Green Building Standard.
For example, two points can be earned by choosing YellaWood® brand products over a treated wood product that does not have a Life-Cycle Assessment report (see EPP Certification page). In addition, you can earn up to six points when YellaWood® brand products are used for all framing from the wall down and for exterior decking.
