Green Builder Media Releases Ebook: "The House Our Readers Built"

If Green Builder readers could build a house, this is how they would do it and the materials they would use. Based on our 2017 green brand survey, this "house" shows innovation in action.

Green Builder Media's House Our Readers Built

Longevity and Authenticity Matter. That's the takeaway from this year's brand survey of product brands favored by green professionals.

Our green brand survey consistently ranks as one of the most widely read articles we publish at Green Builder Media. If you know builders and architects, this makes sense. They rely to a large degree on the recommendations of their peers to make product choices.

Of course, those selections depend a lot more on whether a product is “sustainable.” It has to be durable, reliable, predictable and (sometimes) affordable. This is what makes a survey of green pros different from a consumer survey. Their priorities are different. When they choose Ford trucks over Toyota, it’s not about a “gut feeling,” it’s because of personal experience. They like the way the vehicles perform, and how they save fuel and maintenance costs.

As you review the responses to this survey, keep in mind that these are people who field test products for a living, and the four brands highlighted—Andersen Windows, DuPont Tyvek, Trex Decking, and Bosch Thermotechnology—are synonymous with sustainability in the minds of our readers.
