When trying to choose what floor covering to purchase you might begin by considering where the flooring will go and how much foot traffic, sunlight, and other wear and tear your new flooring will undergo.Then before deciding on any definite choice of flooring product(s), try matching two or three samples with the design of the room(s) you want to re-floor. This can turn out to be a lot less expensive and much more rewarding than winding up with flooring that looks great in a catalog or on a website and then awful in your home. Manufacturers generally will match most wood or engineered-wood flooring for color and grain. But minor variations can and will occur from one batch to the next, so purchase all the flooring you’ll need all at once.
To determine how much flooring you’ll need to buy, measure the room’s square footage by multiplying its length times its width. (Divide an irregularly shaped room into smaller rectangles, calculate the square footage of each rectangle, and then add them together.) Our flooring experts can help with this.
Flooring Types:
Ceramic tile
This classic flooring material will resist even the hardest wear and tear, is moisture resistant, difficult to scratch or dent. Can be applied to nearly all flooring surfaces and in any room.
Advantages to solid wood flooring include its natural warmth and the ability to refinished the floor a number of times, along with impressive wear resistance for hardwoods. Pre-finished floors will hold up very well over time and the warranty comes from the factory. While unfinished flooring costs are less, higher installation costs can offset those savings, since the floor must be sanded and finished over several days to seal it from moisture.
Engineered wood flooring
This type of floor covering uses a veneer of real wood over structural plywood backing. Most engineered wood doesn’t wear as well as solid wood or plastic laminate. Generally engineered floors can be carefully refinished once, but the veneer on some may be too thin.
Laminate flooring
Laminates are made from dense fiberboard with a image layer beneath a clear plastic protective layer. Laminate flooring can readily mimic anything from oak to marble. The best laminates resist scratching, denting and fading from sunlight usually better than solid hardwood or engineered wood products.
Vinyl Flooring
This type of flooring can be especially good concerning wear, dents, scratches, discoloration from sunlight. Easy installation is another added plus with the tiles or vinyl planks. And vinyl floors are somewhat “softer” than other flooring types except carpet.
Made of linseed oil and wood products, linoleum is a natural, resilient flooring material. Like vinyl flooring this floor covering will provide a “softer” covering for your floors than most other products.

The most often used floor covering is carpet. Carpet flooring comes in a wide array of styles and colors sure to go well with any home interior design. Carpet wears well when properly maintained

When Replacing Carpet Consider The Following:

•    Have the old Carpet cleaned – This will minimize the spreading of dust, biological debris, and dirt that can/will become airborne when you take the carpet up.
•    Plan in Advance – Coordinate efforts with all of those involved in removing and hauling away the old carpet and installing the new.
•    Remember to begin Maintenance on your New Carpet immediately!!!

Choosing to install New Carpet, and what type of New Carpet to choose, is oft times affected by what have proven to be myths regarding Carpet.  These include, but are not limited to:
•    New Carpet is way more expensive than Hard Flooring.
•    You only need New Carpet, not new Padding, too.
•    Thicker or denser Padding does not make any difference in New Carpet performance and/or appearance.
•    Wool Carpet outlasts the New Carpet Fibers.
•    Anyone can lay New Carpet.
