Green Police Regulate Product Sustainability Claims
Scott-Kriner "As sustainable (or 'green') products continue to grow in popularity, the claims by marketers of those products often go a little too far in their boasting of the sustainability of the product," writes Scott Kriner of Green Metal Consulting Inc. in his new column on DesignandBuildwithMetal.com. "In an attempt to somewhat regulate the green claims being made, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) created a Green Guides document in 1992. The guide has been updated repeatedly with the most recent update taking place in 2012. The Green Guides are designed to help marketing personnel avoid making environmental claims that mislead consumers." More

Metal Roofing Warranty Offers Complete Protection
firestone-featured-article.jpg"It's no secret that a new metal roof is a big investment. Hard-earned dollars are devoted to designing and constructing a commercial building with a roof that is not only durable and high-performing, but also stands the test of time," writes Robert Thompson of Firestone Building Products in a new Featured Article posted on DesignandBuildwithMetal.com. "Of course, issues can arise over the lifetime of a metal roof, and relying on a warranty can come in handy in protecting that investment. However, not all warranties are created equal. Whether you're an architect, a builder or a roofing contractor, it's crucial to be knowledgeable on exactly what a warranty covers should challenges arise in the lifespan of your roofing projects."
