Bayer Built's Commitment to the Environment...
Bayer Built Woodworks is a non-manufacturing distributor of extraordinary millwork products located in rural West Central Minnesota. Bayer Built Woodworks' roots date back to the early 1950's, when farming drove the local economy. Our tradition of providing extraordinary millwork and service began in the early 1980's. It was very clear from the beginning that our connection to a rich tradition of farming would provide us the groundwork to build a company with an intimate understanding of our role concerning the environment.
We, along with our vendor partners, are committed to doing all we can to protect the environment. Bayer Built has strong relationships with our vendor partners and together we are in full support of the green movement. Within these partnerships is a level of commitment to not only providing green products, but also implementing green practices into our daily routines. It can be as easy as recycling paper or as extreme as air drying wood or with high efficiency boilers fired by recycled saw dust rather than fossil fuels. Every little bit helps, which is why we are always looking for other ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
Bayer Built Woodworks is proud to offer a range of environmentally-friendly products. We are committed to offering products and components that meet or exceed industry performance standards for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. It is our belief that a healthy environment and a healthy business go hand-in-hand; we are committed to stewardship in the protection of our environment.
Bayer Built Woodworks has been participating in the Energy Star program since April 2007. Energy Star is a government program that certifies products and practices that are energy efficient to help consumers save money and protect the environment.

Low-E Glass Option
Low-E glass works by reflecting heat back to its source, by utilizing an ultra thin metallic coating on or in the glass. This means that the heat is reflected back into your home in the winter to keep it warm and away from your home in the summer to keep it cool. Low-E glass still allows visible light through, brightening your home; only invisible infrared light is reflected. Low-E glass is available on a range of Acclimated Entry Systems - start seeing the benefits now.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)
Bayer Built Woodworks is proud to participate in the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). By working with the FSC, and achieving FSC Chain of Custody certification, Bayer Built Woodworks is able to provide certain products that carry the FSC label and are certified as harvested in an environmentally friendly manner.
