Now known for their use of state-of-the-art technology, Dubeau flooring in Toronto has humble roots. It all began when brothers Jules and William Dubeau opened a sawmill in St. Norbert, Quebec in 1936. Known then as Dubeau Frères, the company became Canada’s second-oldest hardwood flooring manufacturer, as the brothers’ vision of providing Canadians with quality flooring became a reality.
Maintaining The Trust of Customers
Chestnut Flooring proudly carries a wide range of Dubeau Flooring, as their hardwood’s natural beauty and durability is popular amongst customers who value the company’s tradition of excellence. In the 1960s, the company met the demand for an affordable alternative to strip flooring by developing a line of parquet products, which remain popular to this day. Undeterred by a fire, which destroyed their plant in 1978, the brothers rebuilt their business under the name Parquets Dubeau Ltd. and introduced a line of prefinished parquet in the 1980s. In 2001, Parquets Dubeau Ltd. collaborated with Lauzon Enterprises Ltd., becoming an industry leader in North America. While the company has changed drastically over the years, they’ve maintained their passion for quality wood products as well as their commitment to craftsmanship, which has enabled them to maintain the loyalty and trust of their customers. However, they have also adapted their products over the years, adopting sound environmental practices and utilizing rapidly changing technology to their advantage.
Although Dubeau Floors began as a small sawmill, today their manufacturing process is on the leading edge thanks to years of research and technology investment and the dedication of their employees. The first step in their production process is the careful selection of the raw lumber used for their products. Once selected, the high quality wood strips go through a meticulous manufacturing process that utilizes state of the art technology and expert craftsmanship. All Dubeau products are manufactured at their facility in St. Norbert, Quebec, just north east of Montreal, where the company originated. Aside from their high quality, what sets Dubeau flooring apart is its distinctly smaller four-sided bevels and environmentally friendly, solvent, VOC- and formaldehyde-free finish. When purchasing Dubeau Flooring in Toronto, you can have peace of mind knowing that your new genuine hardwood floors will be easy to maintain and will last for generations to come. They are backed by a finish ‘wear-through’ limited warranty of 25 years (for residential use) as well as a limited lifetime structural warranty against manufacturing defects.
Because wood is a renewable resource, hardwood flooring in Toronto is an excellent choice for customers who are concerned about their ecological footprint. Dubeau is committed to environmental responsibility, as they understand that the continuous supply of timber is dependent upon the adoption of strict ecological management. Thus, they work to reduce their ecological footprint by preserving forest resources for future generations. To do this, they only use wood from forests, which are managed sustainably. They care for forest lands which cover two millions acres, meaning the company has a 25 year supply of raw lumber and they work to ensure that these forests perpetually renew their timber. In addition, they comply with the US Lacey Act, which means that all of their lumber is legally sourced and the Quebec Forest Act, which sets strict standards regarding fauna, water, forests, resorts, and other stakeholders. In addition, they are ISO 14001 certified for environmental management practices, which is a testament to the way they measure their impact on the environment. Finally, they also hold Chain of Custody certification from the Forest Stewardship Council of Canada (FSC), an international designation that recognizes their promotion of responsible forest management. Because of the aforementioned credentials held by Dubeau, their products can be used to help customers earn LEED credits, a building rating system which measures the environmental and energy performance of buildings.
