At Capilano Hardwood, we support LEED standards!

What is LEED?

"Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design [LEED] is a consensus-based program developed by the U.S. Green Building Council to define and document a standard that improves environmental and economic performance of commercial buildings using established and/or advanced industry principles, practices, materials and standards. It is a voluntary performance-oriented system where points are earned for satisfying the criteria. To earn certification, a building project must meet certain pre-requisites and performance benchmarks ["credits"] within each category. Although USGBC does not certify, promote, or endorse products of individual companies, products do play a role and can help projects with point achievement. The choice of Mirage Floors can help contribute to fulfilling the requirements of each credit."

Capilano Hardwood Floors and Mirage Hardwood Floors, share a commitment to sustainable building! From the very beginning, our values and strategies have been geared towards sustainable development! Mirage Floors are made in Canada with FSC-certified wood utilizing VOC and formaldehyde-free finishes!

VOC compliant and GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality

When advanced water based finishes came out from Bona, Capilano Hardwood was one of the first to use them in Vancouver for both commercial and residential unfinished hardwood installations!

We use the industry leading water based finishes from Bona that won't pose a health risk to you and your family! Traditional floor finishes are very toxic and release airborne fumes that can impact the respiratory health of your entire family! Don't risk going with old style oil based finishes, and instead call the professionals at Capilano Hardwood!

Bona is the industry leader in waterborne finishes and sealers which are VOC-compliant! Bona protects your health and also the environment, while maintaining outstanding durability! No harmful fumes means you don't have to move out of your home or business while the work is being done. Bona is the only finish that is VOC compliant and GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality!

With Bona's advanced technology, the Swedish waterborne finishes are the most durable polyurethane finishes currently available! Bona's clear, high quality finishes won't amber or change colour over time, maintaining the beauty and elegance of your hardwood floor for years to come!
