FSC Douglas Fir Flooring
A distinctive feature of Pacific Northwest homes, Douglas fir was the building material of choice in our region in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of these buildings still boast their original Doug fir flooring, and many other have had this appealing and durable flooring installed in the decades since.We stock Clear Vertical Grain (CVG) Douglas fir flooring in the historically-appropriate face width of 3 1/4", ready to go for restoration and renovation projects. This solid wood flooring is kiln-dried, has a traditional tongue-and-groove profile, and comes in lengths up to 16'.
We can also custom-mill other face widths to match and repair existing interior spaces.
In addition to CVG fir flooring, we offer Mixed Grain Doug fir flooring in a variety of face widths including wide plank, in both Clear and Rustic grades.
All of the Douglas fir flooring we offer is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™(FSC).
PEOPLE & PLANET
We frequently receive inquiries about the sustainability of Douglas fir. Because of its structural integrity and characteristic beauty, this highly desirable species has been the focus of much industrial extraction over the last century, and as a result most of the old growth stands were long ago cleared and turned into the lumber that built America's cities and towns.
Because of this legacy, it is important that current and future harvesting of fir is done in a super-selective, sensitive manner that helps regenerate forest health.
Sustainable Northwest Wood works only with Douglas fir that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship Council™. This is the best indication that the wood products have been harvested in a sustainable manner. Additionally, much of our Douglas fir interior finishes, including our flooring, trim, and decorative beams, are harvested from forest restoration programs that are designed to promote and restore old growth conditions.
