Shaw Laminate and Shaw Epic Hardwood with EnviroCore

Shaw® EPIC™ Hardwood Logo made with EnviroCore®When it comes to green flooring, Shaw Laminate and Shaw Epic Hardwood with EnviroCore ™ are two of my favorite choices. Shaw’s EnviroCore™ is a high density fiberboard (HDF) core that is made out of post–industrial recycled wood by–products. These wood by-products would’ve otherwise been sent to a landfill or burned. When you compare Shaw’s 3/8” Epic Hardwood floors with other 3/8” engineered hardwood floors you will see that Epic Hardwoods require 50% less freshly harvested wood to make. When it comes to Shaw’s laminate flooring, Shaw also requires smaller amounts of freshly harvested wood than most other laminates. In fact, Shaw’s laminate uses 98% less newly harvested wood in its making when compared to most engineered hardwood floors. In addition, Shaw’s laminate floors are built to last, maximizing the laminate’s lifetime and reducing overall replacements. Longer floor lifetimes with fewer replacements make for greener floors.

So whether you choose Shaw’s laminate or Shaw’s Epic Hardwood (both with EnviroCore) you can rest assured that you are making an eco–friendly flooring choice. To learn more about Shaw Industries, be sure to visit FindAnyFloor’s Shaw Industries information.

EnviroCore seems like its very helpful to the environment. Recycled products that have been spared from landfills or burned ... its great. nice to see large companies like Shaw taking initiative on the new way the world is beginning to turn.

The Shaw EPIC Envirocore wood flooring is the worst quality flooring I ever seen. Saw burned cuts, cuts weren't even, floor is nailed in the groove, not the tongue making some nail guns useless. The locking technology is SLOPPY-it DOESN'T lock at all. It just lays in there. It sratches too easily as not enough aluminum oxide layers were used...SKIMPED again. It dents too easily because the wood and core is too soft. My old $1.00/ft laminate was much easier to install and more durable. My dogs didn't scratch my old cheap floor, but they scratched this new floor in one day. Shaw has horrible ethics and cusotmer service. They came to my house, but told me it looked "good enough". Call me with any questions! I'll even send you picture of how horrible the product is. I put the Opticore in water for 3 days and took it our. It separated easily. Larry 707-603-1201

Don't buy Shaw Hard Wood flooring. Worst customer service ever. Their representatives are rude and condescending. Customer service supervisor spoke to me like I was a ten year old idiot.

Their handscraped hardwood flooring, premium grade when installed had huge gaps in it. They sent out an independent adjuster to do an assessment, which they then proceeded to not share. What are they so afraid off.

Do yourself a favor and purchase another product. They promise big but deliver little.
