Providing third-party proof for your product performance claims.
Our Mark Matters to Builders, Remodelers, and Code Officials
Green Homes & Development
Home Innovation Research Labs certifies compliance of residential projects with the National Green Building Standard (NGBS), the only ANSI-approved consensus standard on green building. We certify new and remodeled green residential buildings and land development projects, and pre-approve building products for NGBS points.
We certify the R-Value of insulation to assure builders and consumers that the product they selected will achieve the thermal performance expected. Our certification program covers mineral fiber batt and blanket, loose fill, and insulation for metal buildings.
Homes are complex and dynamic engineering systems with thousands of products assembled by dozens of different trade professionals. It’s easy to make mistakes. Our Home Innovation Quality Certified™ builders and trade contractors all demonstrate ongoing compliance with formal quality systems which improve customer satisfaction and drop dollars to the bottom line.
Endorsed by the International Cast Polymer Association (ICPA), our certification verifies that products meet or exceed the performance requirements for key properties such as water resistance, colorfastness, stain resistance and lack of conspicuous seams.
Traditional building product certification programs establish the performance metrics for all products in your class, making you part of the crowd rather than a stand-out performer. Our custom Lab Tested program lets you identify the product attributes you want to substantiate for marketing purposes, then we help develop the appropriate third-party testing protocol.
