5 Great Reasons Why We Offer American Made Flooring

 
What sets a local flooring store apart? American made flooring. In fact, the world’s largest flooring manufacturers - Shaw Industries and Mohawk Flooring – are based in Georgia with a large portion of their manufacturing within 100 miles of their corporate offices.
 
If you’re looking for hardwood, carpet, laminate, tile, or vinyl flooring, you’ll be happy to know American ingenuity and craftsmanship created the majority of our selections right here in America. There are still viable and beautiful imported flooring options.
 
However, your best bet is American made flooring.
 
In 2015, 60 Minutes exposed Lumber Liquidators for selling imported laminate flooring with high levels of formaldehyde (a known carcinogen) and for making hardwood flooring in China out of illegally cut Mongolian oak from Russia.
 
As a result, consumers are taking notice of where – and how – flooring is made.
 

Here are 5 reasons why we select, sell, and encourage our customers to buy American made flooring from American manufacturers.

 

1. To give you peace of mind.

 
You'll know that your American made flooring meets US Consumer Product Safety Commission standards.
 

2. To guarantee quality.

 
Should you have an issue with your flooring purchase, we can solve it. We have strong relationships with our flooring suppliers and choose to do business with them based on their product quality, selection, and integrity.
 

3. To support fair labor practices.

 
Many foreign product safety standards are low and unsafe worker conditions are allowed in many countries. When you buy American made flooring, you support not only American manufacturers but also American workers, safe working conditions, and child labor laws.
 

4. To protect the environment.

 
US manufacturing processes are much cleaner for the environment versus many other countries which utilize dangerous, heavily polluting processes. When you purchase American made flooring, you know that you're helping to keep the world a little cleaner for us all.

 

5. To strengthen the economy.

 
Buying products from local businesses and buying American-made creates jobs. According to ABC World News, if every American spent an extra $3.33 on U.S.A-made products per year, it would generate nearly 10,000 new jobs in the nation.
