At So Cal Custom Flooring, we constantly strive to provide you with the best in green products that are FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. With manufacturers such as Bel Air™, Garrison™, Armstrong™, Moduleo™, Shaw™ and more, who were doing their part to bring you “green” products long before it was popular, we are sure to have the floors to fit your lifestyle.
In addition, we also use adhesives that are LEED certified and VOC compliant. For sanding and finishing, we do what we can to protect the environment. This includes utilizing several dust control systems to lower the amount of dust we put into the atmosphere. We also use waterborne finishes that are VOC compliant and Greenguard certified for indoor air quality.

What is LEED? The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.
LEED is a third-party certification program and the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED gives building owners and operators the tools they need to have an immediate and measurable impact on their buildings’ performance.
LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in
five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, and indoor environmental quality.
