Laminate Flooring

Benefits Of Laminate Flooring

Durability
Laminate is a strong, scratch-resistant, and highly durable flooring surface. Protected by a tough external layer and resin coating. It’s great for high traffic areas and houses where there are pets and children. For general residential and light commercial use, be sure to choose a laminate with an AC rating of 3 or higher.

Easy to install
Laminate is much easier to install than other floor types. That’s because the boards are designed to interlock, making them easy to work with. Plus, Laminate can be “floated” over most existing floors, saving installation time over other types of flooring which may need to be glued, stapled or nailed down. It’s so easy to install, most people can do it themselves. It’s a great project for any level of DIY’er.

Price
Laminate flooring is less expensive than traditional hardwood, but doesn’t fall short when it comes to look and quality. There’s a great laminate flooring choice for every price range.

Subfloors
Laminate’s versatile, and can be installed on nearly any type of subfloor, like concrete or even pre-existing vinyl floors. In many cases when the installation of a hardwood floor is not compatible with a subfloor, laminate flooring is a smart option.

Styles
Laminate flooring is sold in a wide variety of wood, stone, and tile finishes. All of these are available in different colors, surface treatments, thicknesses, and plank styles.

Easy to clean and maintain
Laminate flooring’s moisture and stain resistant surface makes cleaning spills easy. There are no special cleaners needed to keep a laminate floor in top shape. Daily sweeping is all you need!

Hypoallergenic
Since there are no places to trap dust and other particles that can cause allergies for some people, laminate flooring is a great choice. The underlayment provides a moisture barrier that not only protects the floor from damage, but also prevents mold from forming and sporing.

Advantages

  • Laminate beautifully replicates the look of dozens of different natural hardwood materials.
  • Easy to clean and maintain, so laminate is suitable for any room in your home.
  • Advanced flooring technology makes laminate floors exceptionally durable.
  • Excellent value.

Vinyl Flooring

Benefits Of Vinyl Flooring

Design
Vinyl flooring is very versatile and available in a variety of colors and styles. To that point, more and more homeowners are able to find vinyl patterns and designs that fit their personal design style due to the realistic visuals that mimic wood and stone.

Durability
Possibly the number one benefit of vinyl flooring is its impressive durability. It stands up to heavy foot traffic and helps reduce noise, making vinyl an ideal choice for even the toughest family lifestyle, whether you have pets and/or children. Additionally, vinyl provides a comfort for your feet that doesn’t always come with other, harder floor materials like hardwood and tile.

Another advantage to vinyl is its resistance to water, mildew, and stains. Liquid stays on the floor surface and can easily be wiped away, so spills on your vinyl floors are never a big problem to clean up.

Easy to Clean
Using a vacuum or a dry mop on your vinyl floor will remove dust, hair, and even dirt. Then you’re ready to move onto a wet mop with a cleaning solution. There are many cleaning solutions available for vinyl flooring, so if you’re not sure of what the best one to use is, ask one of our helpful design experts. If you’d rather go the natural route, check out our other blog to follow more easy cleaning steps.

Subfloor Requirements
It is recommended that the subfloor of any vinyl floor installation be as perfectly smooth and flat as possible. Vinyl is considered a “soft” flooring material, which means that it will show any imperfections in the subfloor. Additionally, any particles (large or small) that may get under the floor during installation will potentially cause lumps in the surface and over time can wear down the material itself causing tears and rips in the product.

Heavy Loads
Once again due to the “soft” material, vinyl flooring doesn’t always stand up well to heavy loads, and it can be damaged by sharp objects. It’s important to consider the furniture and activities that will be taking place in a room where you’d like to install vinyl flooring to make sure it can withstand the environment.

Exposure to Sunlight
Homeowners installing vinyl floors should be careful about the vinyl’s exposure to direct sunlight. Over time, excessive exposure to direct sunlight can fade the color of vinyl floors, so keep that in mind when deciding if it’s right for the room you’re remodeling. You may also want to consider installing new window treatments to protect your vinyl floors in particularly sunny rooms.

Advantages

  • We have a large assortment of styles, colors and price-points from which to choose.
  • Vinyl is comfortable to walk or stand on, making it an excellent choice for commercial properties.
  • It is stain and moisture resistant, easy to clean and maintain, and durable.
  • Very versatile and suitable for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, family rooms and more.

Wood Flooring

Benefits of Solid Hardwood Flooring


Enhance the Look of Your Home

Wood floors not only add a touch of elegance to your home, but also a bit of warmth. Many homeowners believe that having hardwood floors even makes the space look bigger. Whether it makes your home feel more inviting depends on the rest of your décor, but it’s an easy way to make a great first impression.

Low Maintenance & Easy to Clean

Hardwood floors are incredibly easy to keep clean. They can be swept, steam-cleaned, or vacuumed to remove any dirt or debris that has accumulated. Imagine not having to clean very often, while still knowing that your floors are not harboring any environmental hazards like dust mites or pet dander. What makes wood floors even easier to maintain is the fact that they are significantly more stain resistant than carpets. If you spill something, all you need to do is wipe it up.

Strong & Durable

Being durable is one of the primary reasons why homeowners choose to upgrade to solid wood floors. One of the main reasons this type of flooring is so easy to maintain is partly due to their durability. Sure, they can get scratched or dented, but it’s not easy to do. If you take proper care of your wood floors, the hard surface can last for decades.

 Adds Value to Your Home

Wood floors can add value to your home. When it comes time for you to sell your home, buyers will pay more for a house with hardwood than carpet. Many home buyers don’t want carpet… especially somebody else’s carpet. They see used carpet as a petri dish that is going to provoke their allergy symptoms. Many home buyers would plan on replacing carpets, which is why they will pay more for a house that already has hardwood floors. Because it’s a feature sought out, wood flooring may even help sell your house faster.

 Better Air Quality

Unlike carpet, hardwood floors do not trap dust, animal dander, pollen, particulate matter or other common allergens. This means that it’s significantly easier to improve your indoor air quality.  Wood floors are often a must for allergy sufferers.

Why are wood floors better than tile or laminate in terms of air quality? Even though tile and laminate do not have the fibers that carpet has, they still have grout lines and an embossing. These grout lines and embossing are a great place for dust and other allergens to settle.

Looks Good in All Décor Theme

One of the primary benefits of wood flooring is its versatility to adapt to almost every interior design theme in your home. No matter how often you are inspired to change the mirrors, wall art, decorative accents or other decor in your home, the floors will always look good and fit your desired theme.

Additionally, not only will wood flooring not clash with your décor, but you have a wide range of colors, shades, and species to choose from. With real hardwood floors, you don’t get a factory pattern that repeats every so often. You get natural beauty available with a variety of shades, swirls, and grains that add character to your home.

Long-Lasting & Cost-Effective

Hardwood floors are easy to maintain, durable and provide better air quality. But they can be expensive, right? Depending on the other floor you are considering, wood floors may be more expensive option to purchase. However, there are a few factors you should consider.

Think about the long-term costs. Wood floors are easier to clean and less likely to be damaged. This will reduce your cleaning or repair costs over the years. Additionally, because they are so durable, hardwood floors can last for generations. This long-lasting quality makes them a cost-effective flooring option. It may be a little more upfront, but in the end, it will save you money.

Color Doesn’t Fade

Many carpets will lose their luster over time. The color starts to change with wear and tear, and all the stains that are impossible to remove. You won’t experience this issue with hardwood. The steady appearance of hardwood is one of the reasons why hardwood last for so many years and rarely need to be replaced.

Can Be Refinished

However, what if you want to change the color? You can do that with solid hardwood floors. Unlike carpet or tile, this type of flooring can be refinished rather than replaced.

This is a huge benefit as the cost to refinish is significantly lower than buying and installing new flooring. It is also beneficial because it gives you the chance to drastically change your home without spending loads of money. Or maybe you just bought a house but don’t like the color of the wood floors, all you have to do is sand the color off and stain them to your liking. It’s as easy as that, and much cheaper than replacing the whole thing.

Improve Acoustics in Your Home

Hardwood floors can also improve the acoustics within the room. They reduce hollow sounds or vibrations that often occur. This quality is why you’ll find hardwood in nearly every dance or music studio. Though, if you’re looking for a wood-like flooring that reduces noise, vinyl or cork may be the better choice here.

Advantages

  • Our hardwood flooring options are available in an array of colors and species of wood from oak to maple, from walnut to hickory.
  • We carry name brand hardwood flooring straight from the manufacturers and stand behind each product we sell and install.
  • Our quality hardwood floors continue to look beautiful as they age and never go out of style.
  • Hardwood floors are easy to care for and maintain.

Tile Flooring

Benefits of Tile Flooring At Home

Durability

Tile is extremely resilient when it comes to staining and wear. Tile is perfect for placement in high traffic areas. It doesn’t have strong impact resistance, though: if you drop a heavy object on tile, it’s as likely to crack as anything else.

Low Maintenance

Because it is so durable, tile doesn’t need much in the way of upkeep. They’ll need to be cleaned, just like any other surface in your home that gets dirty. You’ll want to apply a sealant on your tile about once every 4-5 years. Aside from that, you don’t have much to worry about when it comes to keeping your tiles in good shape.

Cost Effective

Ceramic tiles are very cost effective: they’re one of the cheapest flooring surfaces available. When you factor the initial cost of purchasing the tile and installing them with their longevity and lack of costly maintenance, it becomes clear that tiles are worth every penny. Of course this also depends on the type of tile you use: there are more expensive and high-end tiles on the market.

Water Resistant

Ceramic tiles have a glazed protective layer on their surface that makes them impervious to water damage and stain penetration. This is why tile is so often used to floor bathrooms. They’re also naturally resistant to humidity, making them ideal for flooring an area that is very hot or moist.

Eco-Friendly

Tile is usually made out of raw materials like glass, sand and clay. These materials often get combined with other recycled materials to form ceramic tiles. They also can literally affect your personal environment: they can reduce your heating bills by keeping your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter by serving as a form of insulation.

Resale Value

Installing tile in your home can also prove to be profitable in the long run if you’re going to put your house on the market. There have been many cases where adding a tile floor to a house tremendously increased its resale value. An attractive tile floor could possibly add thousands of dollars to your home’s value.

Air Quality

Tiles are fired in kilns at extremely high temperatures, making it so they contain no volatile organic compounds. This is important as VOCs contribute to a wide range of health problems. Some other forms of flooring (like vinyl and carpet) have low VOC output, but none can stand toe to toe with tiles.

Advantages

  • Tile is available in a huge assortment of types, sizes, colors, and patterns, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind design.
  • Tile is easy to clean and maintain.
  • We use stain-resistant grout for high-traffic areas like kitchen counters or kitchen backsplashes.
  • You can use accent colors, mosaics and unique tiles to make your space your own.

Carpet Flooring

BENEFITS OF CARPET FLOORING

CARPET FLOORING ADDS TO THE STYLE OF YOUR HOME

Carpet can add to the style of your home, whether your home has a more modern formal look, or a warmer and casual style, carpeting can enhance that style and give a room or the entire look of your home the look you have been striving for.

Carpeting adds color, pattern, and texture to any room, office, home or building.

COMFORT

If you have spent a good deal of time walking on hardwood or tile floors, you may have noticed that by the end of the day your feet are tired and aching and your knees and even back may ache.

This is because each step you take on a hard surface is constantly jarring on your joints.

Walking on the carpet with the pad underneath cushions your joints, resulting in less jarring and less joint damage and pain.

In addition, sitting or lying on a carpeted floor is much more comfortable than sitting or lying on hardwood or tile.

WARMTH

Have you ever stepped out of bed onto a wooden or tile floor and felt the chill? If so then you know that carpet can act as insulation and add warmth to your floor.

Thus, carpet floors can actually reduce heat loss during the colder months of the year, resulting in saving on your utility bills.

DEADENS SOUND

Homes with carpet flooring are quieter than homes without carpet. That is because carpet deadens many sounds including footfalls.

Homes with carpets are simply quieter than those without carpets, which is especially nice if you have a large family where people are up at all hours of the day and night and sleep on different schedules.

CARPET FLOORING IS SAFER THAN WOOD OR TILE FLOORING

Carpet is much safer than wood or tile flooring. There are fewer slips and falls than occurs on harder flooring.

Moreover, carpet provides some cushioning resulting in less severe injuries when people do fall on carpet flooring.

RELATIVELY LESS EXPENSIVE

Depending on the type of carpet your purchase, carpeting often costs less than wood or tile floors. However, this may only be a short term benefit because carpets tend to get old and damaged easily. So they need to be changed more often than wood or tile floors, thus adding to the cost.

Advantages

  • We carry an unparalleled assortment of carpeting suitable for many different applications and room requirements.
  • We stand behind the carpet we sell and install because we purchase it straight from the manufacturers.
  • Carpet provides excellent insulation value to a space.
  • Carpeting is a welcoming addition to your home.
