Join Our SaferBuilding™ Builders Program Now!

By joining the SaferBuilding™ Builders Program, you’re making a statement that you support building practices that respect the environment and are concerned about the health of the people who work and live in your homes.

Earn More On Each Home!

In addition to being perceived as “environmentally concerned” you have an opportunity to earn an additional return depending on where the properties are located. That’s because buyers are willing to spend more when they learn of the health benefits of SaferBuilding™ methods. In some of the areas where builders use SaferBuilding™ methods, we’ve seen returns between 7 and 10%.

You’ll get all this – for only $50 per month!

Here’s How It Works!

Unlimited SaferBuilding™ Access for 4 contractors per month

How does the program work? It’s simple. We provide you with an unlimited amount of SaferBuilding™ sheets for up to four contractors per month. We also provide unlimited environmental disclosure forms for the four contractors so that they will also know what criteria the property will be judged by when they apply for a SaferBuilding™ certification.

Extensive Information on Materials and Methods

SaferBuilding™ methods cover most of the contractors that you use to build homes. But it’s more than just materials – because SaferBuilding™ also shows the contractors the methods that are employed to make the home environmentally sound as well.

Certification and Sales Collateral Information

Once your home is built using the SaferBuilding™ materials and methods, you can apply for a certification that shows that your homes are SaferBuilding™ homes – a certificate you can proudly display in each home – and one that will earn you an additional return. You’ll also get Sales Collateral Information for your customers – that recaps what methods and materials were used and why the home’s value is enhanced. Download a sample sheet now!

  • Q. Why do you charge money?
    A. Our information is unbiased... we don't accept funds from manufacturers, nor do we sell building materials. We sell information.
  • Q. Can’t I just find this information on the Internet?
    A. Frankly, no! This information is not found anywhere else - is the team that conducts the research! We don't parrot information from manufacturers, but actually take their products and test them for efficacy, toxicity, and combinations of products. We then create the methods when using the SaferBuilding™ approved materials in America's Test Homes.
  • Q. How did you come up with the cost?
    A. We’ve purposely kept the cost low – to encourage you to “do it right.” The cost is tiny compared to the cost of construction or the cost of your health.
  • Q. I'm a professional builder and know my trade. Is this for me?
    A. Yes. The SaferBuilding™ How-To Guides assume a professional level knowledge of the trade and discuss differences between traditional building and SaferBuilding™. They include both materials and methods.

  • Q. Why How-To Guides and not just materials?
    A. If you want a less toxic paint, why not just ask “what paint to use?” We know from experience that you’ll often overlook important things – like the primer, caulk, joint compound, spackle, trim pieces and other materials that can interfere with your indoor air quality. So we show you the whole picture.
  • Q. Why not just provide a list of materials used?
    A. That would eliminate the method – which can be just as important! For example, if a smoker lived in a room, then we’d want to sand and wash the smoke residue off the walls and ceilings before beginning to paint.
  • Q. Won’t my contractor know the right materials and methods to use?
    A. Most contractors do not know the SaferBuilding™ methods and materials. Play it safe – give them the “How-To” Guides and know the job will be done the right way!
