Pioneers in Healthy Home Construction
SaferBuilding are pioneers in the field of Healthy Home construction and discovered many protocols that are considered standard today. Methods matter!
Safer than Green Building
SaferBuilding was founded in 2003 by successful entrepreneurs who recognized that ironies in green building allowed toxic materials to be used and saw the market need for unbiased organization to conduct tests on building materials and methods.
SaferBuilding has conducted over 300 field tests and the knowledge that goes with that from finding appropriate materials, to additional cost, to longevity, to telling contractors to use methods new to them, etc. is priceless. SaferBuilding does not take funding from manufacturers and can freely report accurate and true test results. As a result, the feedback has been amazing.
SaferBuilding has hundreds of testimonials, spoken at numerous conferences, and has been in over fifty major media outlets.

“Surprisingly, many common materials for household maintenance contain known ingredients which cause cancer and other adverse health effects. Fortunately, safer materials and methods exist!”
“It makes sense that a property without toxic residue would be worth more than one with toxic residue. Using SaferBuilding™ Materials and Methods can be a great investment”
“Case settled based on SaferBuilding report. Superb, included detailed remediation steps”
“Even though certain materials are allowed by the local administrative authorities … it is in the best interests of everyone to find out about what their vapor content is and what effect they have.”
“There is nothing more beautiful that a stone or tile floor that has been installed without introducing any chemical toxins into the indoor air space.”
“It is better to work within terms of odor and smell than the mass produced smells.”
“I just had a son and started thinking about my health more. I upgraded all of my safety gear including a full mask respirator. I refinished floors for ten years before I knew that wood dust was a carcinogen.”
“Using the SaferBuilding™ materials and methods is better for ourselves and better for environment. I expect that as more of my clients become aware of the materials that they will switch for the sake of their families.”
“When using pressure treated wood, the chemicals get absorbed and I get headaches for the rest of the day even if I’m wearing a dust mask. When using solid wood, make sure that moisture doesn’t penetrate the wood.”
“My first job was putting in asbestos ceiling tiles… ten years ago, my job was to take them out. People are trained to think they have to use new construction materials even though we don’t have scientific studies of long term health effects.”
