Why Choose Wood
The environmental benefits of choosing timber flooring are indisputable. Far less energy is consumed in timber production, processing and disposal, than with any other construction material - excellent!
The more trees we use, the more are planted because the wood that is used comes from forests that have been managed for generations. Harvesting creates space for new growth at a rate of two trees for every one felled. Here’s a fun fact - there are now more trees today than there were 100 years ago! That’s GREAT NEWS!
Wood can be used in three life cycles;
1. It is used to create a product.
2. The product itself can be recycled
3. It can be used for energy generation
NO other renewable material can equal this, in terms of volume and economy.
At Freedom Flooring, we are committed to supporting environmentally sustainable practises both within our business and with the timber flooring products we supply to our customers. We purchase timbers from FSC certified organisations only.
FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) promotes responsible forest management in countries worldwide and certification ensures that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources.
Timber flooring is an excellent health choice for people concerned with maintaining healthy homes temperatures, and cleanliness for asthma and allergy sufferers.
For keeping down costs of heating and cooling your home - timber flooring is a heat conductor because it has a higher thermal mass than alternative flooring like carpet.

Unlike other hard flooring options, underfloor heating isn’t necessary to keep your feet.
