Cabinets of Distinction

Green

Al's Cabinets is dedicated to serve our customers green requirements. Green building is not entirely new, but is ever evolving. There are several national standards and organizations along with state programs and organizations.

Some of the national and regional green organized building programs include:

  • United States Green Building Council (USGBC) - LEED Home
  • National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) - Green Home Building Guidelines
  • Minnesota GreenStar - Certified Green Homes & Remodeling
  • Green Built Homes - Wisconsin
  • Green Communities - National Program

Most of these programs consist of point systems that lead to increasing levels of environmental stewardship and energy efficiency. Our product suppliers will provide you with the required material documentation needed for your green building program or product certification.

What about the homeowner that just wants a green kitchen but does not want to use an "official" green program?
For these homeowners, Al's Cabinets can supply you with a variety of "Green Product" options that will meet your environmental and economical needs. There are several levels of "Green" that can be attained similar to the "Official Green Programs" and their point systems. Our suppliers can help explain the certification options and green construction alternatives.
