If you’re looking for a sustainable flooring alternative for your Katahdin Cedar Log Home, Modern Mills’ ACRE™ Sheets may be a solution. This chemical-free composite flooring is indistinguishable from wood. ACRE™ Sheets are made from upcycled rice hulls without phenol, formaldehyde, or resins, so your indoor air quality never takes a hit.
Use Your Imagination!
With the look and feel of real wood, ACRE™ Sheets can be shaped and routed to create unique designs. They cut with standard woodworking tools, so no special equipment is required. Leave them untreated or paint and stain with water-based products to suit your décor. The material is guaranteed not to splinter or rot and provides a consistent look throughout. Add in water- and slip-resistant, and you’ve got a flooring for just about any area in your log home. Plus, ACRE™ provides strength without the weight of many wood or manufactured flooring products.
The experts at Green Builder Magazine recognized ACRE™ with its 2022 Sustainable Product of the Year award as an architect-recommended replacement for threatened tropical woods like teak and ipe. For builders and homeowners alike, the benefits are numerous:
- 100% recyclable
- Mold-, pest- and UV-resistant
- Guaranteed not to not splinter, rot or crack
- Suitable indoors and out
- As easy to work with as wood
