Environmental commitment

 

Natural hardwood floors are one of the most environmentally friendly options in the market. It is a renewable and sustainable product that is the best choice for an “eco-house”.

Natural wood is one of the most abundant materials in nature. A sustainable forest management allows the use of this raw material without having any impact on the environment.

At L’Antic Colonial we only use wood from sustainable forests. These are controlled forest areas where more trees are grown than are felled. This way, we ensure the constant creation of new green spaces, while at the same time we reduce the negative effect that carbon dioxide has on the atmosphere.

In addition, the manufacturing and installation processes for hardwood floors uses up much less power than any other building material.

Today, the popularity of natural hardwood floors has considerably increased, which has led to an increased consumption of this raw material. At the same time, the commitment to the environment from the companies producing these floors, has also been consolidated.

At L’Antic Colonial, we undertook that commitment from the very first day. The environmental certifications that our natural wood products have, prove it:

The average annual net growth of hardwoods for wood floors is higher than the annual extraction average (Source: Department of Agriculture of the Forest Service of the United States)
Wood is a carbon neutral product that produces oxygen during its growth cycle and stores carbon during its service life (Source: University of Wisconsin Wood Products Program Solid wood flooring. Lifecycle analysis)
There have been wooden floors for hundreds of years , so they won’t have to be replaced as frequently as other flooring options. (Source: United States National Association of Home Builders)
