Columbia Laminate Flooring offers some of the best consumer warranties in the industry - with a Limited Residential Lifetime ® against wear, staining, fading and the joint integrity of the Uniclic® system.
Their domestically produced laminate has an average pre-consumer recycled content of 74%. They use and reuse their wooden pallets until they become damaged beyond repair. Then, instead of dumping them in landfills, they send them to be ground up and used for mulch, compost, wood fuel or even the core material that goes into particle board.
Columbia Flooring strives to have 100% of all the cardboard used in their manufacturing facilities recycled. This cardboard is collected and recycled back into other paper or cardboard boxes-making it a closed-loop paper to paper system. They then turn around and repurchase these products, use them and then recycle them again.
Quality is always a the main focus at Columbia Flooring. The direct-pressure laminate technology they pioneered is superior because their flooring is completely balanced. The weight and quality of materials and pressure of production is identical on both the top and bottom of the board creating a perfectly balanced product with no bowing or collapsing in the center. This collapsed effect is common with competitors floors as their top layer is too heavy and the underlayer is not thick enough.
