SUPPORTING PROJECTS THAT BENEFIT PEOPLE AND THE PLANET
Long life, many uses
We often talk about the exceptionally long life of our solid hardwood flooring in a financial context, where a 60+ year lifespan offers very low life cycle costs. But there are many more benefits to a durable, long-lasting floor. Because a Junckers floor last for such a long time, there is less waste to manage, lower energy consumption and ultimately, lower demands on natural resources than if a floor is replaced.
As a long-lasting material, solid wood can be reused and recycled, either as flooring or as a building material. Many a Junckers sports floor has been lifted at the end of its long life and found new use as reclaimed flooring – a sand and a seal will bring it back to good-as-new condition. As much as we can, we promote the reuse of our floors by donating reclaimed floors as well as by-products from our wood flooring manufacturing process to charitable and worthy causes. Below are some of the projects we are proud to have been involved with.
