Wood is a natural material that helps take care of mental and physical health. Reduces the impact on the joints, provides well-being for its beautiful appearance, it’s pleasant to the touch and has properties such as the ability to regulate moisture, increasing comfort.The wood for it’s properties is a great thermal insulator, this protects from cold in winter and heat in summer, which is reflected in energy savings. In addition, the energy balance in its manufacture is much lower than in other materials.

The use of wood reduces the risk of pests and fires and is associated with sustainable forest management with environmental, social and economic benefits, as is mentioned in woodfloors.org “Unlike other flooring materials, the raw materials used to make them – trees – can regrow after they are cut down, which replaces the material that is harvested. In the United States, the hardwood forests that provide flooring products are growing more than twice as fast as they are being harvested”
