New Flooring Adds Style to Your Home!

 Are you considering new flooring for your home? Do you need help with the flooring installation?

Whether you’re looking to upgrade, remodel or replace your flooring due to water damage, picking new flooring can be a tough choice! There are many materials to choose from and each type has an array of options to go along with it. Also, depending on the room and the flow of traffic, there are a variety of considerations to think about.

Consider your home’s layout. Do you have an open floor plan? Using the same flooring throughout the space will create a clean, continuous appearance. Don’t under estimate wear and tear depending on where you’re planning to install new flooring.

Here are a some options when considering new flooring in your home. 

1. Hardwood. Due to hardwood’s durability and natural feel, it continues to be the flooring of choice for many homeowners. Hardwood floors come in a variety of styles such as plank, parquet and pre-finished boards. 

2. Porcelain is a beautiful option for flooring. Materials like terra cotta and natural stone, such as marble, granite, travertine or slate are available. When selecting tile on a budget, porcelain is the most cost-effective. It combines the beauty and hardness of stone, but costs considerably less and is much easier to maintain than marble. Glazed porcelain tile is durable enough to handle heavy traffic areas. 

3. Laminate flooring is one of the most popular and affordable.  The laminates are a less expensive option to hardwoods, and come in a variety of patterns. They are still durable and can be a good solution for a quick fix or a rental property. 

4. Engineered wood floors. Engineered wood consists of a real hardwood veneer attached to a number of plywood layers. This is a little more expensive than laminate because the top layer is real wood rather than a print. This top layer of wood gives engineered wood floors a much more convincing sound, feel and look than laminate.

5. Bamboo flooring is pre-finished and engineered just like standard solid wood flooring. Unlike hardwood floors, the material used to create bamboo floors is not a tree, but actually a lightweight woody grass. This fast-growing, regenerating plant has the tensile strength of steel, which makes for a highly durable floor that resists swelling and contraction with changes in humidity. 

6. Linoleum is considered eco-friendly because it’s made from all natural materials and does not deplete forests. It creates no health issues during production, installation, use or disposal. The bactericidal properties of linoleum stop microorganisms from multiplying, so you often see natural linoleum floors used in many hospitals. Linoleum is also water resistant and scratch-resistant, and easy to clean.

7. Vinyl is one of the most value-conscious flooring options today. It’s an especially popular choice for rooms that are prone to moisture problems, such as basements, bathrooms and kitchens. Vinyl is also easy to clean and softer than tile. When selecting vinyl: the thicker it is, the more traffic it can withstand.

8. Carpet flooring has endless options; multiple colors, textures, styles, carpet height and more. Carpet is a quiet choice, and can be stain resistant.

Construction Tips

Licensed and Insured. The last thing you want is a remodeler to be working on your property, only to find out they don't have the proper insurance or aren't licensed to do the work, because if something goes wrong or someone is hurt at a work site, you could be held liable for the damages. Make sure that the remodeler you choose has ample worker's compensation, property damage, and personal liability coverage.

References. The best way to ascertain if the remodeler you choose is skilled and competent enough to do the job is to ask for and verify a list of references consisting of past customers that you can contact. Customers that get what they paid for and who are happy with the job your remodeler has done for them are usually only too happy to provide an endorsement on the remodeler's work. Choose me, and before long you'll be on our reference list!
