Local, sustainable, affordable wood flooring - Yes, it is possible!

Local, sustainable, affordable wood flooring - Yes, it is possible!

When it's time to start thinking about new flooring for your home renovation projects, Sustainable Northwest Wood has the solution for you.  Our solid wood flooring is made from locally-grown trees that are harvested sustainably.  Because we work directly with the lumber mills, these options are also affordable and promise decades of beauty and durability.
 

Here's what we keep in stock at our warehouse in Southeast Portland:

 

Oregon White Oak - Oregon White Oak is the Pacific Northwest's only native species of oak tree.  This super-durable flooring comes from trees harvested in the Willamette and Umpqua Valleys and is either FSC certified or comes from members of the Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities partnership.  We love it with mixed face widths of 3", 5", and 7", but custom sizes are available, too.


Cascade Farmhouse Maple - Western Big Leaf Maple is ideally suited for flooring and offers warm gold tones and years of durability.  Our Cascade Farmhouse maple flooring is FSC certified and comes with a 5" face.  It is milled from trees that are harvested just south of the Puget Sound in Washington.



Zigzag Doug Fir - Our Zigzag Doug fir is perfect for matching the historic fir flooring in the Northwest's old homes.  This FSC Pure flooring is milled from trees that are super-selectively cut at the Homestead Girl Scout Camp on Mount Hood's western slope, just 40 miles east of Portland.  It offers a 3 1/4" face width and is Clear Vertical Grain.





Antique Doug Fir - This FSC Pure flooring comes from Forest Grove, where it was selectively cut as part of a watershed restoration program.  It has a flat grain and is perfect for farmhouse, rustic, and other styles where a less formal, more authentic look is desired.  It comes with a 5 1/4" face.  Expect a few knots and lots of Doug Fir personality with this choice!


All of our flooring is kiln-dried, with an end-matched tongue-and-groove profile for a traditional nail-down installation, and comes bundled with lengths up to 12'.  We recommend a natural oil finish for our hardwood floors, which allows the homeowner to easily maintain the floor without needing to move out and hire a professional to refinish it a few years down the road.
