We carry the area’s best selection of Green Flooring products for Residential or Commercial use. Please visit our showroom to see samples of all available products, and to talk with our experienced staff about your project.

Bamboo (bamboohardwoods)
The hardness and durability of bamboo rivals or surpasses traditional hardwood flooring. A leading green flooring alternative, bamboo is natural, sustainable, and 100% VOC free! Available as a solid or ‘clic’ (floating) floor. Strand bamboo is the hardest, most durable bamboo and offers more stability (less expansion/contraction) than solid hardwood. Bamboo is being used in many renovations and new homes because of its eco-friendly properties, and beautiful patterns and colors. Not all bamboo flooring is created equal, so choose wisely. Bamboohardwoods is FSC certified, and offers you the most in terms of durability while exceeding the highest environmental standards.

Hardwood (Moosewood, BSL, Somerset, Lyptus, Harriswood, Hallmark)
Maple, oak, cherry, birch, eucalyptus, and more! All offered in a variety of styles, grades and finishes. Most customers prefer pre-finished, but we also offer unfinished options, and provide eco-friendly (water-based) refinishing of existing hardwoods. Many New Englanderswhite oak install (2) favor traditional hardwood, but engineered hardwoods are more stable (won’t expand and contract with varying temperatures/humidity), and also conserve natural resources. We offer FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) low VOC hardwoods that are sourced from well managed forests. Don’t be lured by low cost, big box flyers that promise much more than they deliver. Earth First Flooring will provide you with competitive pricing on products and installation. Hardwood flooring never goes out of fashion, and compliments any home with its rich, natural appearance. Hardwood flooring is also a great investment that is often at the top of the list for home buyers!

Cork (Wicanders, WECork, Harris, DuroDesign)
Warm and comfortable underfoot and incredibly varied in colors and patterns, cork is the ultimate Green Flooring product. Cork is also low maintenance and water-resistant. Unique, beautiful and sustainable – not a single tree is cut down and there is very little waste produced from manufacturing cork flooring. Natural cork is also hypoallergenic, fire-retardant, and offers thermal insulation. Wicanders now offers Hydrocork – a waterproof, user-friendly product! Check out this video (below):
