Green Building Materials New Artisan Kitchen Remodeling TampaNew Artisan is committed to the care and preservation of the environment.

We’re very specific about how we do that, and here are the headlines….

  1. Our hardwood lumber is sourced from certified mills that utilize sustainable forest practices.
  2. We offer rapidly-renewable wood species such as bamboo and eucalyptus.
  3. We constantly strive to maximize yield on flat-panel products to reduce waste.
  4. We have eliminated the need for toxic adhesives in our cabinet box manufacturing process.
  5. We use solvent-free non-toxic construction adhesives when needed during our installation.
  6. We manufacture our cabinetry locally, which reduces fuel and transportation costs.

The Rest of the Green Artisan Story: Environmentally-Friendly 
Materials And Finishes.

We use a large amount of wood in the construction of our cabinets.  So we’ve made it a priority to only use lumber, plywood and finished wood products (like doors) that come from companies that support sustainable forestry practices and whose manufacturing processes are eco-friendly by reducing VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and HAP (Hazardous Air Pollutant) emissions.

  • The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) plywood used in our cabinets is manufactured using a formaldehyde free resin derived from soy. This proprietary system is non-toxic and considered to be the best no-added formaldehyde choice, leading to better indoor air quality. This product can also contribute to points under the LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building rating system.
  • Our drawer boxes are coated with a finish that is non-toxic and FDA approved for food contact.
  • Our cabinet interiors are finished with a 100% solids ultra-violet cured coating that does not emit any VOCs.
  • We intend to continue to strive for new ways to create a healthier environment in the homes and businesses where our cabinets are installed as well as in our manufacturing facility.
