Hardwood Floors stand up to the modern lifestyle. Whether children or pets are dinging and denting the high traffic areas, Hardwood Floors stand up to the abuse. Hardwood Floors, hickory, ash, red oak, white oak, and maple, provide an excellent foundation in high traffic areas. Hardwoods do not harbor allergens and are good for asthmatics, emphysemas, and chronic obstructive breathing disorders.
Forests can be carefully planted, harvested, and replanted to produce a consistent stream of resources without negatively impacting the environment. When harvested properly, wood is more sustainable than its metal alternatives. Materials like steel and aluminum require a lot more energy to produce. Sustainable timber must be planted and harvested in very specific ways to retain its eco-friendly status.
Clearcutting, the practice of removing all the trees in an area, is prohibited. Instead, buffer zones of trees that will not be harvested are planted around any bodies of water to prevent erosion and protect the habitats of plants and wildlife. This protects the natural plant diversity and water quality. In eco-friendly timber operations, regeneration is a priority. That means trees are replanted as quickly as they are harvested, and harvest levels do not exceed what can be sustained.
Reclaimed wood is more expensive than virgin wood because it needs to be prepared for installation in a new structure. A dealer sorts and prepares the wood so it’s safe for consumer use. Nail pulling, sizing, and reconditioning add to costs over using virgin lumber. Reclaimed wood as a building material, it should be kiln-dried to ensure invasive pests are killed. Reclaimed lumber may be treated with chemicals and paint, which can contain volatile organic compounds, adhesives, preservatives, insecticides, or lead. Wood painted before 1978 will most likely have lead. To make sure lumber is truly reclaimed, purchase it from a reputable dealer with certifications from organizations such as the Forest Stewardship Council or the Rainforest Alliance.
