In the last 50 years, residential flooring has undergone a revolution. Homeowners are no longer limited to carpeting, wood and tile. Today’s flooring options offer an array of choice natural and engineered high performance materials.
If durability is high on your list of desirable qualities, few material choices can beat hardwoods or stone tile. With the right care, these materials can last for hundreds of years. They stand up to toughest challenges and look great year after year.
If the cost of hardwood or stone isn’t in the budget, consider engineered hardwoods or laminate flooring. It’s cost effective, wears well and delivers a wide range of color and appearance options.
In terms of preserving or increasing the value of your home, flooring is one of the best investment options you can pursue, especially if your floors are currently carpeted. Carpeting – even when it’s high quality – tends to return very little on investment because it wears and fades rapidly. It also tends to limit flexibility in terms of decorating choices.
