Life Cycle Analysis
Public awareness about environmental issues is at an all-time high, and increasingly, consumers are doing their part by choosing products that have a minimal impact on the environment.
Fortunately, the facts are clear: wood flooring is the only flooring option available that is completely sustainable.
Need scientific evidence? Take a look at these NWFA Industry Research Foundation Life Cycle Analyses for Solid Hardwood Flooring and for Engineered Hardwood Flooring conducted by the University of Wisconsin. The studies analyze the environmental impact of several flooring alternatives for harmful air emissions, water consumption, total primary energy consumption and product life expectancy.
