If you are thinking of home renovations, changing your flooring is a great place to start. Depending on the location and its usage there are important considerations to ensure they will last and function well for the space you are renovating. WND Contracting specialized in flooring projects and here are some of your options:
Traditionally, hardwood continues to be the most popular choice for the home owners. There are a number of choices that include a variety of styles and finishes. With proper care, a well installed hardwood floor will stand the test of time.
Laminate flooring is one of the most common choices. They are easy to install and less expensive in comparison to hardwood floor. They are composed of different wood-based materials that are layered or laminated. The key consideration is that laminate flooring doesn’t like any water. Spills need to be quickly cleaned to ensure it doesn’t damage the flooring. Our tip is to go with thicker laminate flooring option. It not only looks better but it will last you longer.
Vinyl is a popular choice for rooms that are prone to moisture, such as basements, bathrooms and kitchen. Vinyl is easy to clean and comes available is sheets or self-stick tiles. We always recommend going with luxury vinyl that is more thicker. It can bear more traffic. It’s also great if you have pets. Depending on the design, any dog scratches won’t be as visible.
There are a wide range of tile choices including porcelain, terra cotta, natural stone, marble, granite and slate. Porcelain tile is the most cost effective option. You can explore your inner designer and creativity by combining tiles of various sizes, colours and textures.
