It’s possible to create the home of your dreams while still caring for the world around you. At Ashley Fine Floors we don’t believe that you have to forgo luxuries to save the planet. Rather, we believe that you can still indulge responsibly. Using engineered hardwood flooring is one of the ways you can sustainably renovate your home and have it match your style. Why? Read on to find out!

Renovate with Recycled Material

Reusing materials is the most sustainable way to renovate your home! By using recycled wood, you are cutting out the need to harvest more trees, eliminating the carbon footprint of the harvesting process as well as reducing your impact on local forests. Engineered hardwood flooring is made of recycled wood so it uses far fewer new materials than other flooring options. On top of this, engineered hardwood production creates no sawdust and is sliced rather than sawed. Both of these processes make less wood waste and use more of the material. Ashley Fine Floors cares about the environment and makes it easier for you to do the renovations you want without compromising your values.

The Lifespan of Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Installing engineered hardwood flooring because the material is recycled is one thing; but installing flooring with a long lifespan will reduce the amount of times you need to replace it. By doing so, there is less waste produced by the installation process and less wood being harvested from forests. Engineered hardwood has a longer lifespan than solid hardwood. Where solid hardwood can warp from moisture or humidity, engineered hardwood flooring is moisture resistant. With this in mind, feel free to put this in any room you please!
