Types of Flooring

Flooring has a major impact on the color personality of the space, that’s why you should take your time in deciding what type of flooring best compliments your home.Carpet is your choice if you’re looking for a quiet and comfortable floor. There are so many styles to choose from to fit your lifestyle: from casual to active, and contemporary to classic.

Ceramic tile floor
s are a great flooring option. With its natural look, beautiful designs, and durability, ceramic tile has become a popular choice, not only for floors, but for countertops and accent borders as well.

Laminate floors
 have become a popular choice for areas of high traffic within the home. If you love the look of real hardwood but are concerned with the upkeep and cost, laminate floors could be your answer. Unlike real hardwood floors you do not need to tear up your existing floor, the laminate can be laid right on top. Laminate floors are pretty easy to install too. They are pre-finishing and can be laid same day, so you will have your house back to normal sooner than you would with real hardwood.

 is one of the softer stones. Formed relatively recently from compressed seashells and sediment, limestone hasn’t been under heat and pressure for nearly as long as some of the other natural stones. This means that it’s relatively susceptible to scratching and staining, and should be sealed to protect it from wear and spills.

Granite is the hardest of the natural stones, and comes in some of the most vibrant colors. Because the stone is created by cooling molten magma, it had the hardness of a diamond, and is the best natural stone for you if you’re looking for something very durable.

Vinyl floors are known for their easy care and cleaning, and are generally wear-resistant, which makes them perfect for the kitchen and bath, or any other room in your home. In addition to numerous styles, vinyl also has several options for wear layers.

Solid wood floors react to the environment in which it is placed. In the winter heating months, the moisture content of the wood reduces causing the floor to contract or leave gaps between each board. In the Summer months, when humidity enters the wood, it will cause the wood to expand and it there is too much moisture, it can cause the floor to cup.

Engineered wood floors have layers of wood veneer that are cross-laminated for dimensional stability. These floors will be less affected by moisture than solid wood floors. Engineered wood floors can be installed on grade, below grade, or above grade in almost any room in the home.
