Nothing beats the beauty of real wood– Real wood products portray a sense of elegance and class that does not go unnoticed. Imitation products will never be able to compare.
Every plank is unique - Wood is a product of nature, and because of this, it allows for a new unique characteristic on every plank. The unique nature of wood is what makes it so sophisticated.
Environment – Wood products are renewable and substantially better for the environment over all other materials that are used to imitate the look of wood.
Safety –Scientific Research has shown that Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) products have cytotoxicity/allergenicity components and are combustible. Cytotoxicity/ allergenicity components can create health issues and cause damage to living tissue in humans and pets through exposure. Combustible building products may release smoke, toxic gasses and other chemical compounds when exposed to elevated temperatures. This may have a hazardous impact on building occupants, neighborhoods, first responders and the environment. Wood products are natural and do not have any of these risk factors associated.
