Do you have a new flooring project? Did you rip up the carpets and are thinking, what now? Then check out Columbia Flooring Originals hardwood flooring. They are sure to have any look and feel you envision for your new room. Not only does Columbia hold to the highest standards of customer service and product quality, they are also fiercely committed to protecting the natural resources that provide the raw materials for their business, keeping sustainability and eco-friendly practices at the forefront.
Columbia Flooring's products are certified AHMI, Verified Sustainable, and they plant on average 2.29 trees to replace every 1 tree that is harvested. And because Columbia's hardwood flooring products are made in the United States, the carbon emissions and usage of fuel is greatly reduced because they don't have to transport their materials nearly as much or as far as other companies do.
Beyond the stewardship of the natural resources, Columbia also uses their patented PureBond® adhesive, which is urea-formaldehyde-free. Urea-formaldehyde is still used extensively in the manufacturing of hardwood flooring products even though this chemical has been shown to be carcinogenic. So choose a company like Columbia who takes poor indoor air quality out of the equation and provides a safe, environmentally friendly product that performs to perfection.
When you check out Columbia's collections, be prepared—they overwhelm you with choices. They offer several collections that each has its own unique spin and specs. You can also choose between solid and engineered hardwood flooring among the collections.
The difference between engineered and solid products is that engineered planks are simply made up of layers of wood veneer attached to the tops and bottoms of hardwood multi-ply cores. Visually and functionally you can hardly tell the difference between the two styles. If anything, you'll get a bit more strength with engineered planking.
But either way you go, you get the warmth and beauty of hardwood. And whether you're going for a classic, silky smooth finish or a rustic, hand-scraped look, you will find your floor with Columbia. And from light tans and naturals to smokey or coffee-colored planks, Columbia offers just about any combination of color and style you could want. So your question — what now? — is ready to be answered by Columbia.
