Vinyl flooring is great for giving your floor a beautiful look without spending a fortune. Coming in a variety of styles, vinyl flooring can be fashioned to fit just about any design that you might have. And with its insulated design, vinyl flooring proves to be one of the most comfortable options available -- and, indeed, one of the most cost efficient! That insulated design makes your heating and cooling work more efficiently, so with vinyl flooring, you’ll find yourself paying less in electric bills!
Do you have small children? If you do, then certainly you’re familiar with the sound that always accompanies children. A traditional hardwood floor acts as something of a drumroll for their excitable running and jumping and stomping, so hardwood might be out of the question with regard to your Aspirin budget.
The feature that makes vinyl so quiet is the padding that underlays it. This padding also provides extra comfort under your tiling, making it soft and pliant underfoot. Additionally, this padding acts as an extra layer of insulation, a feature which can save you money on heating and cooling costs!
Do you want a beautiful hardwood look for your home but don’t want to pay the high price for hardwood flooring? Do you not want to deal with the hassle that comes with underlying materials with vinyl flooring? Do you wish you could have both that beautiful look and ease of installation all at once?
If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, then laminate flooring is the option for you! Laminate flooring comes in a wide variety of hardwood patterns, so it offers the hardwood aesthetic without the price. And it does not need any special material to be installed beneath it. It simply “floats” above any hard flooring, so it avoids that hassle that vinyl flooring comes with.
If you suffer allergies, then laminate flooring will prove to be a better option for you than carpet would be. The reason is that carpet’s fibrous design allows contaminants and other allergy-upsetting particles to get trapped deep down inside it. There, the contaminants can continue to grow and live, thus aggravating your allergies until you can remove them with a thorough vacuuming.
Laminate flooring, though, CAN’T trap allergens. Its smooth, non-fibrous design makes any contaminant that lands on it obvious. Thus, you don’t have to suffer from allergens that you can’t see. With laminate flooring, you CAN see them, and cleanup is easy: Just use a mop or dust mop!
Hardwood Flooring Installation
Hardwood flooring is a beautiful addition to any home, and its aesthetic value is matched only by the fiscal value it can bring. Indeed, though the initial cost of installing hardwood can be high compared to carpet installation, hardwood flooring will pay for itself over time in increased property value. Thus, if you are shopping for a beautiful floor AND if you like to build up equity, hardwood flooring is the perfect choice for you!
If you want to enjoy these benefits, just call the experts at Contour Renovation. We have over ten combined years of experience with hardwood installation, so you can be sure that we’ll install your hardwood floor right the first time. With us, then, you will be enjoying your new hardwood flooring and the value it brings for many years to come!
When you’re designing your home, you want to consider the upkeep that the individual pieces will require through the years. As large as a building can be, you could find yourself beset by things to clean: walls, windows, ceiling fans, etc. They all take time, so shouldn’t you build with the least amount of cleaning time in mind?
Well, if you choose hardwood flooring, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a major building component that is easy to maintain and clean! With carpeted flooring, you might need a vacuum and carpet cleaner to keep your flooring looking great. With hardwood flooring, however, you need a dust mop and regular mop. And unlike carpets that will need to be replaced after sustaining years of use and damage, hardwood floors can simply be sanded and refinished. They rarely require full-blown replacements.
Restoration Of Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood flooring is designed to last -- indeed, up to HUNDREDS of years, according to the National Wood Flooring Association! But like anything, hardwood flooring is not impervious to age and wear, and over time, you might notice that some of the luster has gone out of your hardwood flooring. If you notice your hardwood looks a little less than beautiful, it might be time to schedule a restoration!
On average, you should schedule a professional restoration every 10-20 years, depending on the state that your flooring is in within that timeframe. You want to make sure that the professional is going to give your flooring the best service possible, and you want to make sure that they won’t charge you an exorbitant fee either.
To restore your floor correctly, you would need a variety of equipment that can get pretty costly: a commercial-grade sander, plastic to quarantine off the area, various rollers and brushes. And then you would need the knowledge and patience to do the work well. If you are not careful, you could wind up spending much more time than the job requires and winding up with a shoddy end result.
Don’t put yourself through that hassle and expense. Just hire the flooring experts at Contour Renovation instead! With over a decade working with hardwood flooring, we have the experience to restore your hardwood quickly and expertly. And with our competitive rates, you can relax and enjoy your like-new hardwood at a price you won’t mind paying!
