There is a lot to think about when choosing your floor! We want to share with you a few steps you can help you to break down the process. Ultimately these steps will help narrow down the selection and give you a better idea of what type of floor will best suit your needs.
It is recommended to go to the collection pages of our available manufactures, as you follow the following steps:
Step 1) Material- Finished on site, Prefinished, Vinyl Laminate or Cork.
Finished on site had the most versatility to species, color and finishing choices. As well as there are two types of finished on-site flooring, Solid and Engineered.
Prefinished, Vinyl, Laminate and Cork are all great hassle-free options, that have a wide variety of selections, although more limited than finished on-site.
(Visit FAQ to see the differences in the material and Services page to see the difference in installation)
Step 2) Species/Pattern- There are many different types of species of hardwood flooring and all have unique characteristics.
Please visit our manufacturers collection pages to visually compare and see the differences in the floors grain/pattern. To make this step easier if you are having an issue deciding,
skip to Step 6 than proceed to Step 3. Most of the different flooring options have varying prices, comparing the cost can help with the decision.
Step 3) Color- This is probably the most personal option, there are many options available. It is recommended to go with one you will love for a long time verses what is popular.
For finished on-site, this doesn’t have to be an exact color. For example, Just knowing you like greys or browns will help the installation technician narrow down the color with you,
our technicians can bring the available “grey or Brown” stains and provide on-site samples for you to see on you floor.
Step 4) Finish- All finished on-site floors will have the option to have a Matt, Satin or a Semi-Gloss finish. Luckily today,
most prefinished manufacturers are also providing a variety of finishing options for their available products.
Step 5) Size- When it comes to picking the size, there is mainly two measurements you need to think about.
The first is width, this is referring to the distance between each row of hardwood.
The second is thickness, this refers to how high the floor is from the subfloor. The width can change the perspective of the space.
(ie. wide vs. small boards will have a different effect on the perspective on how wide or narrow a house is.)
Step 6) Cost- At the end of the day, the most important thing to think about is cost.
This will ensure you are looking at a is floor within your budget, and will help narrow down the selections of various products to your price range.To get the cost per square foot, please call to confirm the current price.
