New flooring can completely revitalize a room. If your floors are old, damaged, or worn out, you may be considering a replacement to enhance your home’s appearance. Jasper Homes LLC can install new, high-quality floors to make your living space look better and feel more comfortable.
Types of Flooring
It can be tough to decide which type of flooring you want to install. Not only does each option look different, but they all have different qualities, advantages, and disadvantages. Carefully weigh the pros and cons of each choice to figure out which material is the best fit for your home.
Hardwood is a timeless flooring option. It looks beautiful, and it can increase the value of your home. Pine, oak, walnut, and cherry are some of the most popular types of wood used for flooring.
The biggest downside to hardwood flooring is its cost. The materials alone can cost thousands of dollars, so many homeowners opt for more budget-friendly choices. Hardwood also isn’t as durable as other materials, and fixing scratches and dents can become a recurring expense.
Laminate is a popular alternative to hardwood flooring. It looks very similar to hardwood, but it’s less expensive and more durable. Laminate is made by pressing together layers of wood fiber, resin, and other materials and applying heat. This process is highly adaptable, so you can find a wide range of laminate floors that all look very different.
Laminate is vulnerable to water damage, so it’s not the best option for bathrooms or laundry rooms. Repairing damage is difficult, so you may have to completely replace the floor when it gets worn down.
Ceramic tiles are popular for kitchens and bathrooms. There are several types of tiles, and they come in a variety of colors, sizes, and textures. No matter what style you’re going for, you can find ceramic tiles that match perfectly.
Ceramic is durable and water-resistant. The tiles are easy to keep clean, and they’re resistant to germs and bacteria. They can fade or wear out when exposed to direct sunlight, though. Ceramic tiles are slippery, too, which may not be ideal for children or older adults.
Vinyl is another common option for kitchens and bathrooms. The material comes in a range of colors, patterns, and styles. You can use vinyl sheets, peel-and-stick tiles, or planks that click into place.
Vinyl is a fairly inexpensive choice. It’s water resistant and easy to clean, and the installation process is quick and easy. However, its lifespan isn’t quite as long as other materials.
Carpeting can be a great choice for living rooms and bedrooms. It’s soft, warm, and comfortable to walk on, and it comes in a variety of colors and textures. It’s one of the less expensive options, and it can last a long time with proper care.
Keeping a carpet clean can be difficult, which is why some homeowners prefer other flooring materials. It’s easy for crumbs, dirt, pet hair, or other debris to get trapped in the fibers, and removing stains is tough.
The installation process can vary depending on the size of the space and the flooring material you choose. A small and simple project could take just a few hours, but a bigger job could take multiple days. Some types of flooring need to acclimate before being installed, so the materials may be delivered a few days before the contractors arrive.
You’ll need a plan for moving furniture out of the room. When you move it back, you can put rubber pads on the bottom of the furniture to prevent it from scratching the new floor.
Installing new flooring is messy, so contractors use plastic drapes or other materials to minimize the amount of dust and debris that collects in the room. Our team at Jasper Homes LLC takes great care to leave your room clean and clear when our work is done.
