Eco Friendly Flooring
Can Wood flooring be environmentally responsible? You bet. There are a few different options out there for those that want to go green.
Reclaimed Wood Floors
Reclaimed wood is the solution for those that want traditional wood floors without the environmental “guilt”. There are companies that dedicate themselves to “reclaiming” old wood. They save wood from old mills, barns, homes, and more. It’s then cut it into planks and supplied to installers. The process is exacting, but the result is beautiful real wood floors that you can feel good about.
Bamboo is widely considered to be a good green alternative to a traditional hardwood floor. Bamboo is strong, and can be stained many colors. It’s also extremely durable, in many cases beating Oak in hardness.
All north American oak flooring is grown in managed growth forests.
