The History of Lauzon Hardwood Flooring
For over thirty years, Lauzon hardwood flooring in Toronto has delighted customers who want to bring the beauty of nature indoors
President David Lauzon made his “forest to floor” vision a reality in 1985 when he invested in his passion for sustainable hardwood flooring. Although wood is a popular flooring option and is highly revered for beauty and value it adds to any home, this was not the case when the company was established. However, Lauzon held firm to his belief that the comfort, attractiveness, and resilience of wood made it an ideal flooring material. Ahead of his time in many ways, Lauzon also recognized that because of its renewable and sustainable nature, wood that is properly harvested results in a healthier, more balanced environment. Thus, he demonstrated a commitment to environmental awareness before it was considered fashionable to do so.Now a leader in the flooring industry in North America, Lauzon’shardwood flooring is recognized globally for its quality, innovation, and high rate of customer satisfaction.

Although the company has grown significantly since its inception, Lauzon’s commitment to the environment has not wavered
In fact, their milling and finishing processes have been developed to reduce waste, optimize resources, and minimize the company’s environmental footprint. As a result, Lauzon flooring in Toronto continues to lead the way when it comes tosustainable forest management and stewardship. From the forest lots that they manage in Outaouais, Quebec to their sawmill, and flooring finishing plants, their dedication to environmental awareness is evident.Examples of their sustainable practices include responsible sourcing, recycling and reusing. Whether they are sourcing wood from Canada or abroad, Lauzon only chooses wood from sustainably managed forests. In addition, they comply with the US Lacey Act, which means that their sources of timber are legal. Because they own and manage 2 million acres of wooden area in Outaouais, their forest management ensures that they have a 25 year supply of quality timber from a renewable resource. To allow for the renewal of younger trees, they harvest less than 30% of trees per 2.5 acres on a 25 year rotation, which guarantees the continual improvement of the forest, as younger, more vigorous trees are given the opportunity to thrive. Healthy, growing trees transform CO2 into oxygen, keeping our air clean. However, once trees mature, this process stops. This means that cutting down a tree whose growth period has ended helps to make room for younger trees to flourish. Once the matured tree is converted into hardwood flooring, it stores the carbon indefinitely, helping the planet.
Lauzon is ISO 14001 certified for their environmental management practices
As part of their dedication to the environment, Lauzon has a state of the art hardwood sawmill which precisely regulates their production to ensure that the use of every block of wood is maximized. Thus, when compared to the competition, they produce more planks from the same amount of wood. In fact, while the industry standard is approximately 45%, Lauzon has an 80% yield rate. Given that they make up 14% of Canada’s hardwood production, their environmental commitment has a tremendousimpact on the planet. Lauzon has a zero waste policy which means that they recycle all of their products. Although much of their wood is dried naturally using wind and careful temperature control, their primary source of energy for their heating and dryers stems from their shavings and sawdust. Any leftovers that they cannot use are turned into extremely efficient carbon neutral pellets for wood burning stoves. Their pellets have the highest BTU energy efficiency rating on the market and their burn time is unmatched.
