Wood as green roofing material
Let’s talk about Woodroofs
When talking about renewable and recyclable materials, you can do a lot when it comes to planning the construction of your home, house or residential property. Currently, there are many green materials from wall studs to flooring but most people simply overlook these materials and go for something cheap in that moment. While you are staying within your budget limits, those materials are sometimes chemically processed and treated, and can in a way be harmful to your environment. While these eco materials are more expensive over time they can prove to be a great investment that can last for decades. We at Green Energy Solutions, have experience with various renewable and eco-friendly roofing materials like these wooden materials:
Bamboo flooring – It takes three years to mature as opposed to the 50-100 years of other trees like maple and oak used for hardwood flooring. This makes it an environmentally sound and environmentally sustainable flooring choice.
Cork flooring – Cork is harvested from the bark of the tree, so the tree itself is not cut down and the bark takes about three years to regrow, so it’s definitely an environmentally friendly choice. Cork is also naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial.
Reclaimed wood – This wood is salvaged from demolished buildings and reused.
Linoleum – Eco-friendly linoleum flooring is made from items like linseed oil, jute, and flax. Another benefit to linoleum flooring is they don’t release toxic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) into the air like vinyl tiles do.
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) wood – Buying raw building materials like wall studs and framing purchased from certified by the FSC. FSC certified manufacturers must adhere to sustainable forestry practices which include, among other standards and practices, preserving the natural habitat and prohibiting the use of hazardous pesticides.
