Why Hardwood?

The Environmentally Sound Choice

Unlike floor coverings made of synthetic materials, wood is a renewable resource and 100% recyclable. While wood flooring can last 100 years or more, most other floor coverings need to be replaced every 5-15 years, creating considerable waste ending up in landfill sites.

When most people think of the lumber industry they think of beautiful forests that have been left devastated, through clear-cutting, by companies that irresponsibly demolish forests for money. In fact, the North American hardwood industry never clear-cuts and, as members of the Canadian Lumberman’s Association, we are committed to purchasing lumber only from managed forests.
