2-10 HBW Going Green Warranty Wins Award
DENVER– June 26, 2012 – 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty® (2-10 HBW®), the industry leader in home warranties, was announced as one of the winners of the Pacific Coast Builder’s Conference (PCBC) Parade of Products 2012 Award for their Going Green Warranty, a warranty product that is offered for new construction green building practices.
The Parade of Products is an award program that gives exhibitors at PCBC the chance to showcase their innovative and ground-breaking products in rapid, three-minute presentations. Products are judged by a panel of industry professionals based on product description submissions.
“With one in four homes now certified by green building standards, it was clear that there was a need to help protect and upkeep these standards with a targeted warranty program,” said Scott Zinn, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty. “We are very honored to receive this award and look forward to continue to provide innovative products and services to the new home building industry.”
The 2-10 HBW Going Green Warranty is offered to certified green builders only, meaning that the homes they build must comply with either Energy Star, National Green Building Standard (NGBS), or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards. Enrolling a home with the Going Green Warranty rewards builders who have gone the extra mile to satisfy home buyers’ desire for efficient, eco-friendly homes. The Going Green Warranty offers builders another opportunity to differentiate their homes from the competition and existing housing stock, as they meet high standards required to achieve certification.
Included with the Going Green Warranty are repairs and replacements with approved contractors and like-kind Energy Star-certified products and appliances. In addition, coverage includes like-kind replacement of green-labeled carpets and pads, engineered wood products, sustainably harvested lumber, low/no emission finishes, and recycled products. Repairs are always in accordance with the applicable national certification standard. 2-10 HBW’s
