Not only will recycled plastic flooring create an environmental
solution but a humanitarian one.
Recycled plastic flooring can be bought ready made
though to protect it further , it might be a good idea
If a client is looking for another texture to add to the wood floors,
This top layer of recycled glass, whether in chips, tiles
could also serve as shield to the wood underneath,
and could be the icing on a cake.
Of course you could just have a recycled glass tile flooring
made in different shapes and texture to fit a custom design.
Recycled plastic lumber however can still have
been treated with chemicals even though
it has not been treated with arsenic.
For that reason it is important to evaluate
where the source of this recyclable lumber
derives from, in order to find
the ones who do not treat their lumber
with unnecessary and hazordous chemicals
the flooring yourself, you know what is going
into the floors and you can be sure
there are no chemicals that are going
into the products and are environmentally
responsable and friendly.
In another project I have proposed using
water based epoxy paint and
to help the deck or patio last longer under
the rigors of being outdoors
Artificial lumber does not transfer heat therefore
even if a home had many windows in the summer,
the floor would still be comfortable to walk on,
Recycled plastic wood can be used indoors as an alternative
but they are particularly useful for backyard patios
and other outdoor surfaces.
