For decades, Snyder has been an industry leader in regional sustainable building. During that time, our professionals have installed reflective roof systems and vegetative plazas to reduce outdoor air temperatures and the resulting urban heat island effect. A vegetative roof soaks up rain while reducing storm water runoff; a tremendous benefit for the health of our communities. And while we are proud of the many acres of green roofing and pathways we have installed throughout the Pacific Northwest over so many years, our efforts to protect the environment and employ sustainable practices are only just beginning.
Material reuse, specifying materials with recycled content, recycling roofing membranes and/or insulation, and using low VOC sealants, adhesives, primers and coatings has reduced our environmental impact. Snyder can assist with certifications such as LEED and, more recently, RoofPoint; a newer green rating system designed specifically for commercial roofing systems by the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing.
