OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The best flooring material for your home will depend on your family, lifestyle, taste, and budget. You’ll want to choose something that strikes a balance between style and functionality. If you have kids or pets, carpet flooring provides a layer of comfort and softness while remaining beautiful for years to come. Hardwood flooring is a timeless choice that matches most any home décor, while laminate, vinyl, and tile flooring offer spill- and stain-resistant qualities. Our flooring experts can help you choose the right floor for your needs during your free consultation.

  • Solid hardwood is what most people think of when they picture beautiful, authentic hardwood floors. As the name implies, solid hardwood flooring consists of single, solid pieces of wood nailed to a plywood subfloor. It’s extremely durable and customizable, and when properly installed can last more than 100 years. However, solid hardwood is sensitive to moisture, so it’s not recommended for bathrooms, kitchens, and other areas prone to spills. 
  • Engineered hardwood flooring is a more eco-friendly option. It’s constructed from multiple layers of plywood, pressed and glued together in an overlapping pattern with a hardwood top. This type of flooring holds up better to moisture, making it a versatile choice for almost any room in the home. Engineered hardwood is a great option for condominiums where nailing the floor isn’t an option, and it comes in a wide variety of colors and finishes.

It depends. Your old floors may have to be removed if they’re not fully adhered to the subfloor. Your flooring expert will be able to provide more information about your options during your in-home consultation.
