How To Select What Type of Flooring To Put In Your Los Angeles County House
Are you going to be looking for new flooring in the near future?
Think about which area of your Los Angeles County residence it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, living room flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a nursery or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or particular attention may be required?
What Type Of Subfloor Is In Place?
Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling board, or Plywood? Will you be laying it over existing linoleum flooring, engineered hardwood flooring or asbestos tile?
Identify What Are Your Top Priorities For The Floor Covering
If your house is in Los Angeles County ask these questions…
Does the flooring need to be ecofriendly flooring? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or discount cork floor? Does it need to be a quiet floor like rubber tile, cork flooring including cork underlayment, or engineered wood flooring with cork underlayment? Does it need to be appropriate for damp areas like roofing slate or slate tile? Does it need to be flooring that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo flooring, laminate floors, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?
Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example
Let’s consider flooring for a Los Angeles County basement with a cement slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional guests. Then, our top choice is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork floor covering offers simple cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are needed to assemble the planks. These warm floors become even more insulating once you add Eco-Friendly Flooring’s cork underlayment to the mix.
Why Choose a Cork Floor for your Los Angeles County Residence?
One added key feature of cork floor covering that many Los Angeles County homewners may dismiss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and animal hair will not cling to the floor. Cork floor upkeep is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The house’s indoor air quality will improve dramatically once cork flooring has been installed.
Cork floor covering is also very forgiving. This means that animal traffic and children traffic on the cork can be masked with cork’s texture. Little dents will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood floor covering or discount cork floor covering, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Los Angeles County couples will enter making a flooring selection. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is going, the condition of the subfloor, and top priorities for the flooring, you will be able to narrow it down to the best fit for your residence.
