The Time to Go Green Is Now




GREENER STOCK in Cincinnati, Ohio encourages homeowners to switch to the LEED for Homes rating system, which “promotes the design and construction of high-performance green homes” ( This is one of the several LEED rating systems and is tailored to different building types and project scopes.

A project can achieve one of the four tiers of LEED certification (certified, silver, gold, and platinum). Certification is based on points awarded in the following eight categories:

  • Innovation and Design
  • Location and Linkages
  • Sustainable Sites
  • Water Efficiency
  • Energy and Atmosphere

  • Materials and Resources

  • Indoor Environmental Quality
  • Awareness and Education


Owners and residents of homes built to the LEED for Homes standards experience many benefits.

Some of these benefits include:

  • Proximity to employment centers, transit, restaurants, schools, and other community resources
  • Lowered household operation costs due to high-efficiency appliances, toilets, and building materials
  • Healthier air quality due to low- and no- VOC paints and materials
  • Highly durable and energy efficient finishes and floors

Owners and residents of LEED for Homes buildings can benefit from third-party performance testing as well as verification and certification. They can also be assured that their home is truly green.
