New Wood Flooring Installation
Hardwood flooring is a high-end aesthetically pleasing way to give your home a look of spaciousness and the never out-of-style elegance of wood. Easy to clean, strong and durable, this kind of flooring is a great investment that will pay you back for many years to come. The advantages of hardwood floors versus carpeting are these:
- low maintenance – they can easily be cleaned or resanded to give them a brand-new look
- renewable resource
- highly customizable – there are a great number of wood types, stains and techniques that can match your home, furniture and give your floors an unique look
- they keep the indoor air quality healthy and clean – no allergens, fibers, trapped dirt, pet hairs and other particles that occur when you use carpet or even tiles
Laminate vs hardwood – laminate is somewhat cheaper than hardwood and, because of the way it is made, it is more resistant to scratches. Hardwood is easier to repair by sanding and refinishing, adds more value to your home and it has a much better, natural look than most kinds of laminate wood.
Laminate flooring is a synthetic flooring product which is obtained by fusing together multiple layers of fiber board wood and melamine resin and then it is topped off with a high resolution photographic layer that makes it look like wood. Laminate flooring is easier to install and more durable than traditional hardwood flooring.
Vinyl flooring is cheaper and more durable than the other types of flooring. Vinyl flooring looks better than ever and can be made to imitate wood, ceramic, tiles and stone. Very resistant to traffic and stains, vinyl also comes with different gloss levels.
Vinyl flooring comes in different sizes, such as sheets, planks and tiles.
How do I choose the right floor for me?
You have to look at various factors, such as moisture (if it is going to be installed in a bathroom, for example), traffic (do you have pets or children), your budget (more exactly, the type of material that fits your budget) and your maintenance requirements (laminate, for example, is low maintenance but harder to repair).
Do you repair hardwood flooring?
