Vinyl ~ The new vinyl flooring replicates natural stone, ceramic tile and even hardwood. It is easy to maintain and is a terrific value.
Some new vinyl products have an enhanced fiberglass backing system for added comfort and superior moisture resistance.
Tile ~ All tiles are not created equally. There are different grades of ceramic tile, from standard clay tile to high-quality porcelain tile.
Porcelain tile is known for its extreme durability and strength. It has the most realistic look, mimicking natural stone, slate and even hardwood.
Natural stone tile is a beautiful product, often with lots of color and variation. Although a superb option for uniqueness and beauty, it does require an expert installation and more routine maintenance than porcelain or ceramic tile. When purchasing tile or stone, make sure it’s from the same dye-lot to ensure uniformity in color, thickness and size.
Hardwood ~ Hardwood is the largest growing trend in flooring. There are many styles, from domestic hardwoods such as oak and maple to exotic hardwoods such as Brazilian cherry, teak and tiger wood.
Exotic species are typically harder than the domestic variety and are usually more varied in appearance, with deep color and more pronounced character resulting in a remarkable rich and unique look.
Keep in mind that all hardwood is a natural product susceptible to scratching, denting and changes in color with light exposure.
Laminate ~ Laminate flooring is an image of hardwood or tile attached to a hard, dense board with a durable wear layer. Available in either the look of stone, tile or hardwood, laminate flooring can often be installed directly over the existing floor. The newer-wood laminates consist mostly of individual planks that are cut and staggered just like a real solid hardwood.
Carpet ~ Carpeting is still a very popular option, especially with all the new designs, textures, and patterns available. Carpeting is more stylish today than it has ever been. It is important to evaluate the space and traffic patterns when choosing carpeting. Nylon carpeting is the best fiber option for most applications, due to its resilience, which gives it a longer life expectancy.
Polyester is another durable fiber option that has great stain resistance and costs slightly less than most nylon carpets. Manufacturers’ warranties are important, but the three most important things to consider when purchasing carpeting are the fiber type, the cushion and proper installation.
