Sustainable Wood Flooring
This beautiful White Oak floor was originally a High School basketball court. This wood could have ended up in the landfill but it has given beauty and value to its new home.
We ask for your cooperation in looking for these sustainable possibilities as this is a new emerging field. We will also continue to provide the traditional floors of maple, oak walnut hickory-pecan, fir and other appropriate woods. We work with local & national companies to provide you with sustainably harvested or reclaimed wood.
We have great connections with suppliers of sustainable flooring. That can provide us lumber from certified sustainable sources and can offer you a diverse selection of exotics bamboo and reclaimed flooring. Black's Farm Wood is a local business that specializes in the milling and purchase of antique and rustic recycled flooring that give charter to any home or business. We recently installed a 120 year old floor re-claimed from a tobacco barn into a Kentfield Residence.
Bona Kemi developed a new finish called "HD" Traffic.
It cost more per gallon than regular traffic but is a superior product in both durability and sustainability. It has less toxic off gassing than traditional Polyurethane finishes.
We recommend it for high use areas. We have used this finish as a top coat on the Stinson Beach Community Center, Bolinas School, The Pelican Inn, and the Druids Hall in Novato to name a few...
Our clients with environmental/health concerns have been relieved to know it is more durable and has less VOC than traditional traffic formula and it is It is GREENGUARD Certified for Children & Schools.
If you would like an additional discounted top coat of this new HD Traffic or the original formula, we would be happy to provide an estimate.
