What is a Certified Green Professional?

The Home Authority is a Certified Green Professional in Fargo/Moorhead by the National Association of Home Builders. A Certified Green Professional knows how to combine cost-effective building science with an ever-expanding selection of products and materials to build or remodel a home with sustainability in mind. They are trained to incorporate energy, water and resource efficiency, improved indoor environmental quality and sustainable and locally sourced products into their projects — and to teach you how to best take advantage of these features.

Why Build or Remodel Green?

  • Better overall health for you and your family
  • Improved air quality
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Address issues stemming from allergies and asthma
  • Feel confident in the quality of your home
  • Having a green home will be a major selling point should you need to consider resale
  • With increased awareness around toxins/pollution outside your house, make your home a safe haven

Did you know that EPA studies indicate that the levels of many air pollutants may be two to five times higher in indoor air than outdoor air?

We partner with our incredible team members to offer options that provide peace of mind and create indoor environments that are safe and healthy to reside in. From GreenGuard certifications to low off-gas alternatives – we can confidently say these materials will lessen the levels of indoor air pollution.

Are you frustrated by the amount of waste generated by the standard home remodel or new build project?

So are we! That’s one of the many reasons why we completed our Certified Green Professional coursework – to learn more about lessening our waste production on the jobsite and utilizing building and remodeling methods that are better for the environment.

Our sister companies are just as committed to these Green Initiatives as we are.

TCA Color

The Coatings Authority team offers paint and stain blends that are low-VOC and do not off-gas as much as traditional paint and stain options.

CAB Color


The Cabinet Authority lines use real hardwood doors and drawer fronts vs. composite wood that off-gasses Formaldehyde.
