Flooring made in the USA is held to an extremely high standard of quality and safety that many imported floors fail to achieve.
American flooring manufacturers have much stricter quality control of their products since the manufacturing process from the lumberyard to processing is easily accessible and monitored. On the other hand, many overseas manufacturers often provide cheap flooring products at the cost of quality materials.
Cheap floor coverings tend to have certain chemicals in them; some are poisonous at high levels.
All floors made in the USA undergo strict and rigorous regulations to ensure toxic chemicals are low and beneath the standards. This regulation ensures that American-made floors are safe for you and your family.
Imported floors do not have such regulations and often have low safety standards due to cheap production.
The unregulated toxic chemicals in imported floors could be detrimental to your family’s health..
A recent example of this is Lumber Liquidators’ Chinese laminates discovered to contain extreme levels of the cancer-causing agent, formaldehyde. Laminate flooring made in the USA, on the other hand, from a reputed supplier like Shaw undergoes rigorous testing and quality confirmation.
Loyalty: Buying American-made products supports the US economy.
Style: Design teams are American with American perspectives.
Consistent Quality: While consumers may have doubts about products from overseas, goods manufactured in the United States are believed to be better. And, if there is a problem, domestic producers are accessible.
Faster Delivery: Typically, when a new product is introduced to the market, availability may have a long lead time for goods made overseas.
Cost Competitive: With labor costs overseas and shipping costs increasing, US goods are now becoming more competitive.
Made in America – it’s more than just national pride; it makes good business sense. There are multiple benefits to manufacturing at home and the list is continuously growing; logistics are simpler- freight charges, turnaround time, and quality control—to name a few.
From a business standpoint, local manufacturing for local markets makes more and more sense. Transportation costs, supply chain management, environmental concerns, and understanding the local consumer tastes make it more simple and more efficient to manufacture in the home market.
Most major flooring companies have made domestic production part of their corporate strategy. This means they are maintaining jobs within the US economy, helping mitigate the potential impacts that come with the global transfer of raw materials and finished goods.
After weathering the recession, Americans today see it as their responsibility and duty to shop locally and buy domestically produced goods. That’s why we have made sure you can find USA-made products on our website.
Floors made in the USA not only affect your home, but also the American economy. The domestic manufacturing of these floors offers Americans jobs and promotes economic growth.
In addition to showing your patriotism and pride for America, purchasing USA-made floors also shows your support for safe working environments and child labor laws that foreign labor laws often fail to protect.
