Tap into our team’s expertise, perform research on your own and you will make the right decision.
Wood, Tile, or Laminate?
The floor material you select for your home or business affects your home’s aesthetic, your comfort, and your budget. Plenty of time, effort, and money will be invested in this project so it is imperative you make the right decision. The floor type you select should suit your home’s unique floor plan and also ensure your home’s look and durability are not sacrificed. This means wood flooring will make sense for one home yet laminate or tile will prove optimal for others. Let’s take a look at each option.
Tile flooring is available as either stone, porcelain, or ceramic. The primary difference between these types of tile is the fact that the porcelain variety has sand, is less porous, and is comparably hard. If the flooring is to be added to high-traffic spaces such as a kitchen, tile flooring is optimal. In particular, porcelain is ideal for such spaces. Opt for the unglazed variety of porcelain and you won’t have to worry about any scratches developing though the surface might display wear as time progresses. Ceramic tile is comparably easy to cut and add to a home or business. Furthermore, ceramic is glazed, allowing you to add an infusion of color. Ceramic tile is particularly common in kitchens. Alternatively, stone is easy on the eyes yet it has the potential to prove slippery when moist.
There are all sorts of intriguing options for wood flooring. Perhaps you would like finished wood floors. Others will be partial to unfinished. Some are partial to country style while others love the look of traditional or modern wood. Add in the choice between ash, maple, oak, cherry, mahogany, and walnut and you have even more to think about.
Laminate flooring continues to improve as time progresses. This type of flooring is fairly popular even though most people don’t realize it. Laminate floors are available in the form of textured, embossed, smooth, hand-scraped, and other varieties. Plenty of wood floor renovations are completed with laminate flooring in an attempt to reduce the project cost. Furthermore, laminate flooring can be installed in your preferred method, be it pre-glued, glued laminate, or glueless click.
