Knowledge & recommendations on product types we install

Carpet

We believe that the carpet installer you choose is just as important as the carpet you select.

Make sure you select a professional company with a strong reputation, experience, insurance, industry certifications and a warranty to stand behind when it comes to your carpet installation.

Carpet is still the largest flooring category in terms of sales in the United States.  Although many new products have come along over the years (laminate, luxury vinyl tile, vinyl plank, etc.) carpet is still the #1 preferred choice for many homes. Carpets most common fiber construction types are polyester and nylon.  Most common carpet styles are loop, pattern, texture & frieze. There are other fiber and style types so knowing what and how you want your carpet to perform (stain resistant, wear resistant, pet protect, etc.) is key to selecting the right type for your home. No matter what you select, we can install it!

Hardwood

Hardwood flooring is a timeless classic. Hardwood is a beautiful hard surface finish with more species, stains and styles than can be listed here.

Wood floors hold and add value to a home or commercial office better than any other flooring surface available. Hardwood is the only flooring surface that seems to improve with age, if treated correctly. Hardwood is also great for those who suffer from severe allergies or are vulnerable to dust, dirt, or other airborne allergens. Hardwood is offered in all kinds of forms now including the classic solid and several sizes and thicknesses of engineered. These woods can be installed as nail down, glue down and even floating depending on manufacturing specifications.

Sand & Refinish

Sand & finish is a great way to give old floors a brand-new look. Solid hardwood and even some engineered hardwood can be sanded down to the unfinished wood and a new stain color selected and applied if desired. This will generally clean up scratches and scuffs in the floor. The sand & finish process has been improved over the years and now minimizes the dust released into the air. No sand and finish process is completely dust-free, but clean-up is much easier now. Be prepared to stay off the areas being sanded and refinished for a few days, depending on the square footage being done. Generally, there is one coat of stain and three coats of polyurethane, which all have to dry separately. The time and money put into this is definitely worth the reward, as you will virtually have new floors in your home or office!

Tile & Marble

Floor, wall, and backsplash tile installation can vary as much as the imagination, but you need the right installer to carry it out.

Transitioning from layout to finished product is both timely and complex, especially when dealing with patterns, under-floor heating, crack suppression, enhancers, etc. Additional materials for tile installation can vary greatly depending on surface application or sub-floor composition and conditions. Tile installation can be messy, but the finished product is always beautiful!

Tile Backsplash

Tile backsplashes have become a popular trend in homes today. Just as any tile floor application, the designs and patterns are endless. These backsplashes typically compliment countertops and appliances very well and add an additional dynamic and customization to kitchens everywhere. In most households, the kitchen is the most popular room in the house and many people enjoy the visual stimulation that backsplashes offer.

Vinyl

The need of precision installation is key for vinyl.

Vinyl is a product that once it is cut, it is extremely difficult to patch or repair. The initial installation is vital to the life of the vinyl and its installation. Proper floor preparation is an absolute must when working with vinyl, especially sheet vinyl. And installing underlayment, when needed, is just as important as installing the vinyl.

VCT

VCT or vinyl composition tile is a very popular selection for commercial applications such as schools, grocery stores, or government buildings. VCT has many products similar to it including Solid Vinyl Tile (SVT) and Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), but all vary in some form. There are a few lines of residential VCT, but most are named something else (such as LVT) and generally have more home felt patterns and colors. VCT is popular primarily because of its durability and cost efficiency.

Vinyl Plank

Vinyl plank combines the versatility, wear resistance and diverse selection of laminate with the durability and low-maintenance of vinyl.  Vinyl plank patterns and styles can mimic the look of hardwood or tile and due to its growing popularity, the offerings are growing every day.  Vinyl plank is currently the fastest growing product type among all flooring options.  




Laminate

Laminate gives the look of hardwood with even better wear resistance and durability with most lines.

Laminate is a popular choice for those with multiple pets or areas of high foot traffic. Laminate was originally manufactured to offer customers a more economical wood alternative. Laminate is no longer a b-list option to hardwood as laminates come in all widths, textures, colors, and prices. Laminate is also a very versatile product as it can go on any grade (above grade, ground level, or above grade) of a home or building.

Also, always check with your retail salesperson to make sure you have all the appropriate transitions for your doorways and openings to other flooring surfaces. Transitions, when needed, will ensure a smooth change from surface to surface in your home or business while securing the floor and preventing from movement.
