Sustainable wall surfacing prioritizes eco-friendly materials like recycled or reclaimed options, low-VOC paints, and sustainable wood. Innovative choices such as bamboo panels, recycled metal tiles, and living walls further contribute to minimizing environmental impact. The goal is to create aesthetically pleasing and healthy spaces while promoting resource conservation and reducing the carbon footprint.
MDF stands for medium-density fiberboard, which is an engineered wood composite made up of wood fibers. Because the MDF is composed of small wood fibers, there is no visible wood grain, rings, or knots. The making of the composite uses the fibers, glue, and heat to create a tight bonding board. Both softwood and hardwood are used to manufacture MDF. Generally denser than plywood, this composition creates a stronger material for building. We use a veneer sealant to prevent water damage. Two types of fiberboard are moisture resistant (which is typically blue) and fire retardant.
