Four top questions about flooring

Four top questions about flooring

Shopping for new floors can be a bit overwhelming with all the design options on the market. Of course, style to suit your taste is a priority, but you'll also want it to perform well and last a long time.

Here are answers to four of the questions we often hear in our showroom.

Is all hardwood the same?

There are two versions. Solid is one thickness throughout, while engineered has a construction that makes it stable and better able to handle wood.

They both look similar, can be refinished, and add value to a property. Come into our flooring store, where you'll see brands like Johnson Harwood and Harris Wood, among others.

Can I have carpet if I have pets?

With today's technology, mills are developing superior durability and stain resistance products. In addition, there are unique versions, such as pet-and-kid friendly, hypoallergenic and sustainable.

Examples are Mohawk's SmartStrand Collection which was tested extensively on pets. In addition, Karastan's Delicate Path Collection has the All Pet Protection & Warranty.

How do I choose the right tile for my project?

Every tile has strength and absorption levels that will impact your remodeling project and determine how and where your new floors can be used.

Read labels carefully. Also, describing your project to the tile professional will guide you to the right one.

What are my wood options for the kitchen?

You need a completely waterproof wood-look product, such as luxury vinyl plank or waterproof flooring.

These offer remarkably true-to-life images taken with high-definition photography and embossing. Both are cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards.
