Demolition and Grab Hire in Cheltenham and the Surrounding Areas | 3 Things to Consider Before You Install Eco-Friendly Timber Flooring

In our capacity as demolition and bulk excavation experts, we prepare an area for groundworks and foundations with efficiency. It’s a service S Peet Groundworks’ contractors have been providing to our domestic, commercial and industrial clients in Cheltenham and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas since 2010. Our company continues to expand as our plant hire and grab hire facilities are now a major part of our business.

As we work from the bottom up, it’s natural for us to discuss flooring within properties. And, with climate change and the environment a major part of modern day living, many private and commercial property owners are opting for eco-friendly options underfoot.

Points to Consider

Doing your bit for the environment is a positive step. S Peet Groundworks Ltd is also conscious of maintaining a cleaner footprint and we achieve this by recycling as many aggregates as possible following the demolition and bulk excavation processes. Our groundworks contractors can make use of the new materials using our plant hire and grab hire facilities. Basically, what we remove from the land we put back in.

With the environment and eco-friendly procedures in mind, keep the following points in mind when purchasing flooring for your new property in Cheltenham and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas:

Select flooring that is FSC certified

Go for timber that has been cut from sustainable forests and produced in an environmentally friendly way. With the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) logo, you’re guaranteed the wood for your flooring has been produced by exacting standards.

Is It or Can It Be Recycled?

Reclaimed flooring can add character and charm to your property, especially if it’s an older building. Every time you walk across it, you’re stepping on a little piece of someone’s history. And, at the end of its life when you decide to renovate, recycling it gives the timber another purpose.

Eco-friendly Installation

Using adhesives to secure any wooden flooring will put a serious dent in your carbon footprint. Where possible, choose tongue and groove boards so the timber can be laid without the need for any glue.

Although it’s not wood, bamboo is a major player in the area of sustainability. It’s actually a grass and used for a wide variety of eco-friendly household options from flooring to bedding. Despite the belief that it might be a delicate substance due to its description, bamboo is extremely durable with a higher tensile strength than most steel alloys.
