ORE OWNERS CHOOSE ECO-FRIENDLY BUILDING MATERIALS
SEATTLE – Sept. 12, 2018 – Homeowners that want to make their houses more eco-friendly should focus on materials that are naturally long-lasting, come straight from a trusted source and have recycled content.
Hundreds of green products on the market today can be incorporated into a modern, eco-friendly home. For example, cork flooring has an underestimated level of quality and wear. The material is exceptionally quiet underfoot, environmentally friendly, comfortable and serves as a natural thermal insulator. In addition, cork flooring is sealed to prevent moisture absorption and staining, and it can sometimes be refinished like hardwood.
Recycled countertops can be an interesting option. High-density paper countertops are similar to soapstone and look like smooth slate. This eco-friendly material is a non-porous hard surface, and it's warmer to the touch than stone alternatives.
Another countertop option: Recycled post-consumer glass, as well as architectural glass or even car windshields.
Finally, Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese method of charring the surface of wood to preserve it, make it fire retardant and resistant to rot, insects and decay. The burning process draws out moisture, so the resulting chemical compound protects the wood.
Shou Sugi Ban wood is used primarily for exterior purposes, but it can also be used indoors for decoration.
