We All Float On: The Advantages of Floating Hardwood Floors

Traditional solid hardwood floors are nailed or glued down, and new floating methods create more flexible, healthful, and sustainable options in natural materials. This course is designed to teach participants the characteristics of floating floor assemblies that increase resilience to wear and promote adaptive reuse of flooring materials.

This course is 0.5 LU|HSWs.



Whole Woods: Why Solid Hardwoods are the Sustainable Solution for the Future

Solid hardwood materials sequester roughly 1/2 of their weight in carbon and thereby represent a significant advantage in the construction of green buildings. Additional benefits are provided when materials are locally sourced and manufactured using wind and solar power. This course will explore the additional “carbon positive” benefits of innovative floating floor assemblies that are comprised of natural solid hardwoods.

This course is 0.5 LU|HSWs.


The Human Comfort Zone & Solid Hardwood Perfection

Both humans and wood products are most comfortable within a range called “the human comfort zone” which balances temperature with relative humidity. When interior spaces are too humid, mold growth is promoted, and when conditions are too dry, human health is negatively affected. This course describes why the balance is important for humans and wood products alike, and the simple means by which the balance can be achieved.

This course is 0.5 LU|HSWs.
