What is Enviro Board?

The Pacific Northwest is known for its abundant forests filled with beautiful tall timber. However, our population is growing by leaps and bounds, and the housing industry must continue; so how can we prevent the depletion of our natural resources? In the recent decade, more attention has been brought to utilizing renewable resources. Is the technology of Enviro Board the magical solution?

The Development of Enviro Board

In years past, forests were clear-cut at an alarming rate for building materials; and agricultural waste was burned, releasing harmful pollutants into the atmosphere. That was before the more recent push towards green building products, and the birth of Enviro Board.

The Many Uses for Enviro Board

Enviro Board can be used in the construction of any building that uses conventional wood construction. . Paired with steel framing, Enviro Board can reduce the amount of studs and labor needed in a project by 50 percent. Additionally, because of its strength and flexibility, it can be used to replace insulation, drywall, and plywood. Or, it can be used in a variety of applications including sub-floors, walls, ceilings, and doors.
