We care about our people, our community, and our planet.
Taking care of our environment isn't just a trend.
Fresh air, clean drinking water, lush forests, abundant wildlife and clean beaches should not be taken for granted. We could add a lot more to that list, but besides the essentials like safe air and non-toxic water, we really enjoy the outdoors in general. We also like efficient manufacturing, lower energy costs and healthy home and work environments. That's why we're doing our best to be environmentally responsible wherever we can, at work, at home, and at play. We hope you are too. It's the right thing to do.
Responsible Sources, Less Waste & A Clean Finish
Our lumber comes from environmentally responsible lumber producers.
For over twenty five years we have been purchasing lumber from strategically located mills that practice responsible forestry. For more information about our suppliers, let us know. For more information about sustainable forestry practices in Pennsylvania, click here.
Nothing goes to waste.
Our flooring planks are milled in longer lengths and variable widths to maximize lumber yield, reduce material waste and keep energy costs down (it helps our floors look better too). The cut-offs and sawdust, generated during the milling process, are both upcycled into useable products for both people and animals. Our sawdust is widely used for animal bedding while our kiln-dried cut-off pieces of chemical-free hardwoods are used as cleaner burning firewood in portable fire pits and smokers.
Everyone loves a clean finish.
Rehmeyer Floors are available prefinished with all-natural, Hard Wax Oil (in dozens of colors with various custom options). Why is Hard Wax Oil the best finish for your Rehmeyer floor?
- Eco-friendly & hypoallergenic

- Cures instantly so floors are protected immediately
- Finishing process gives off zero ozone emissions into the environment: unlike UV lamps, LEDs do not release ozone; yielding a safer work environment

Rehmeyer has invested in technology that enables us to dry and cure our hard wax oil finish, instantly and completely when exposed to a special LED light. Rehmeyer floors, finished with LED Hard Wax Oil, can easily be spot-refinished or repaired. This option is very popular with homeowners and contractors alike. While LED Hard Wax Oil truly enhances the natural beauty of the wood, it also speeds up production times and makes flooring with this finish more affordable than other options that take up more space and time to dry and cure. This process is also better for the environment as it gives off zero VOCs, unlike many modern curing methods.
