Flooring can be tricky, so making the wrong decision could cost you. When considering new flooring options, consult the pros! The team at Advantage Contracting can assist in helping you decide what would work best for your space based on activity and use.
Floors that give you MORE
A flooring renovation can be time-consuming. Knowing the different floor types is key. You want to make sure you’re choosing a selection that suits your floor plan while maintaining its style and durability. Here are three types:
There are tons of wood flooring options. Do you want unfinished or finished? Modern, traditional, country, or another style? Solid or engineered? Most of all, you’ll need to determine whether you want to use oak, maple, cherry, walnut, ash, mahogany, or some other type of wood. Do you already have wood floors that can be salvaged?
Tile flooring comes in ceramic, porcelain, and stone. The differences are that porcelain tile contains sand and is harder and less porous. If you’re putting new flooring in high traffic areas, like kitchens or mudrooms, this may be a good selection. With unglazed porcelain, you won’t see any scratches, but glazed porcelain can show wear over time. It’s important to consider how much maintenance your floor will require over its lifespan.
Ceramic tile is also called non-porcelain. It’s easier to cut and install than porcelain. It’s also glazed to create different colors. You’ll find this type of tile in most kitchens. Stone tile is beautiful but can be very slippery when wet. These tiles are usually in granite, limestone, slate, marble, and travertine. They have a higher maintenance requirement, must be sealed, and usually need to be refinished every few years.
Laminate flooring has come a long way. You’ll find this flooring in many spaces and don’t even realize it’s laminate. Laminate floors come in smooth, embossed or textured, distressed, hand-scraped, and others. Many wood floor renovations are done with laminate flooring, which can help save money. Laminate can be installed in three different ways – glueless click, glued laminate, and pre-glued.
