  • Superior resistance to water absorption

3: Floor Trusses

These allow most of the building products to be put in the ceiling cavity keeping the basement ceiling flat. Solid joists are cheaper on a per unit basis. Since these products use raw materials, the environmental impact is much smaller than the loss of old-growth trees that are required for traditional joists. Approximately 35% of each joist is recycled material.

4: Shaw Flooring

In addition to being beautiful, Anso Nylon carpets are extremely durable and stain resistant. But one of the best features of these products is they can be recycled over and over again. Because Anso Nylon has been designed to be recycled, this process does not affect the carpet quality, performance or style.
