Certified Wood Flooring
This type of hardwood flooring has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. All wood bearing this certification comes from forests throughout the United States that are actively managed in a socially responsible way by companies. There are several different varieties of wood available for purchase that have this certification, including many of the more expensive ones such as cherry, maple, and birch. The Floorman is a Dallas hardwood flooring expert who will be more than happy to speak with any homeowner about the certification process, as well as offer advice as to alternatives.
This is one such alternative to purchasing certified wood. Essentially, reclaimed wood is old wood taken from barns, sheds, and other structures that are torn down. The wood can either be resurfaced completely to give it a like-new appearance, or some of the rustic character can be left in order to provide a rustic feel to any home. Unfortunately, the availability of such wood is intermittent at best, so homeowners must plan ahead in order to secure the wood on time.
Forests that become too dense are susceptible to diseases and blights. Therefore, the responsible thing to do is to go in and cut down a few of the trees in order to provide enough space so that the plant life can continue to flourish. That is where suppressed wood flooring comes from. Basically, the green conscious homeowner can rest assured knowing that whatever was taken out of the forest in order to make his or her floor was done so with the health of the other trees in mind. As with reclaimed wood, however, the availability of this type of product can be limited.
