Flooring Selection


Usually installed “wall-to-wall”, carpet is an extremely cost effective and comfortable flooring surface. Thanks to latest repellence coating technology, most carpets are manufactured with stain resistance built into their fabrics, dramatically reducing the likelihood of permanent staining and allergen absorption. “Wall-to-wall” installation is accomplished by nailing tack strips in the parameter of the room, and the carpet is stretched and fastened over foam padding. The padding is essential to the feel and life of the carpet.

Engineered Tiles

This is an excellent alternative to ceramic/porcelain tiles for two reasons: no grout is required and it can be glued to existing floors, so there is no need to remove existing vinyl sheets or to install cement boards. This will save a substantial amount from the labor cost of tile installation. Since it is a print, there are many different designs & sizes to choose from. If you want a more traditional tile look, it can always be installed with grout as well.


There are two types of hardwood floors, solid and engineered. Solid wood, as the name describes, is a solid piece of the wood, stained (or not), and then finished with polyurethane. It may also come “unfinished”, so that it can be stained to your specification and finished after being installed. Solid wood is usually ¾” thick, and comes in random lengths. Species, width, and selectiveness determine the cost. Only recommended installation for solid wood is nail/staple down. Engineered floors are multi-layered with a “face”, the top layer is the actual wood specie. Similar to solids, they come in a variety of species, stains, and widths. They are usually 3/8” or ½” thick, can be installed nail/staple down, glue down, or float. Concrete surfaces require engineered floors, as they can’t be nailed into. Generally speaking, they tend to cost less than similar solid version, providing a cost effective option to upgrading to hardwood. Engineered floors are not laminate.

Completely man made flooring, made with pressed boards and a printed veneer. The veneer is usually a woodprint, but stone or tile prints are offered as well. Laminates are scratch resistant and extremely durable, making them suitable for high traffic settings. High Definition scan and printing with textured boards create laminates that are very difficult to distinguish from real wood. They are a very cost effective option that can be float installed on both wood and concrete subfloors. We also offer waterproof laminate options. Do not over look laminate as an option.

Tile & Stone

The most common waterproof surface, very frequently used in kitchens and bathrooms, tiles are extremely durable floors. If properly installed, they will last a lifetime. Proper installation for tiles requires a sturdy subfloor, so on plywood floors, a concrete subfloor is required. The concrete sheets are screwed into your existing plywood to provide stability for the tiles and the grout. Most tiles require grouted installation. The most common tiles are made from porcelain, ceramic, or natural stone, in many different sizes. Prices vary by material, content level, and print/finish quality (porcelain or ceramic).

Waterproof Planks

The most common concerns with wood floors is scratching and damage due to moisture exposure from pets and spilling. These floors solves both of these. The construction is usually a fused printed face onto a PVC or polymer core with (or without) a rubber or cork backing. This construction allows the planks to be 100% waterproof, as there are no wood or paper material. Because of high-definition scanning & printing, plus embossing of grains & knots into the boards, the final product is very much like real wood. Waterproof planks can't be scratched, there is no poly-urethane. And as a final bonus, they are usually offered in very wide planks to give you the best possible look. This product is by far the fastest growing flooring in residential floors. If you have dogs that are hard on hardwood floors, give this product a very close consideration.
