Toledo Green Home Builder
Sustainable design and construction, or “green building,” is a holistic approach that minimizes environmental impact, reduces maintenance, and creates a more desirable living space for the building occupants.
Green building focuses on maximizing energy and water efficiency, utilizing recycled content building materials, minimizing local and global environmental effects caused by buildings, and improving indoor environmental quality. The goal is to transform the design and construction of new buildings, so that all projects will be designed and constructed reflecting green building principles.
Slaske Building Company is one of the few residential home builders in the Toledo area to hold the following accreditations, signifying our experience and commitment to designing and building greener, environmentally friendly homes in the Toledo market.

Classwork leading to receiving the CGP distinction provides a background in green building methods, as well as the tools to reach consumers who are most interested in green building projects. This designation signifies the holder as an organization leading the charge to provide market-driven green building solutions to the home building industry.
