We have an Avalanche of Wood. . .
Variety of colors
At Avalanche we use pre-finished woods. The finishes of pre-finished woods have a higher level of performance with a uniform application of more layers. Some of the pre-finished woods can be installed without glue which also allows for repair or replacement with much greater ease. It is a product you can "install today and dance on tonight!". These advancements, as well as the improvements in engineered construction, were developed with the goal of delivering tangible benefits to the end user. Pre-finished woods carry a manufacturer’s warranty and are engineered for better environmental stability, which is extremely important in Colorado, an area of large climate differential. Finally, a prefinished product is usually significantly more environmentally friendly. It reduces chemical emissions in your home and eliminates the need for the disposal of many containers used on a site finished floor.
The wood manufacturers that Avalanche represent are environmentally conscious in the selection and replanting of trees, the manufacturing process, as well as the handling of the wood finishes. Cork and bamboo are both classified as rapidly renewable products by the US Green Building Council. Most importantly, many of our woods are FSC certified. Look for the FSC logo identifying products which contain wood from responsibly managed forests. We encourage you to visit the FSC website to learn more about their important activities.
Cheap Wood vs. Quality Wood
Not all wood, cork, and bamboo are created equal. You can find these products in so many price points on the market today that it can be confusing when shopping for the best value. Price is one point, but you also want to consider a few of the basics: wear layer, including number of coats of factory finish, evenness and clarity of the finish, total thickness, and the right species for your environment. Avalanche invites you to explore all your options with our qualified staff.
