How To Decide What Category of Flooring To Put In Your Wheeling Place

Are you going to be searching for new flooring in the upcoming months?

Consider which area of your Wheeling house 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 special attention may be required?

What Sort Of Subfloor Is In Place?

Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, Oriented Strand Board (OSB), or Plywood? Will you be laying it over existing slate flooring, bamboo flooring or asbestos tile?

Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Flooring

New, Mache Latte is an elephant Gray colored, matte finished cork. If your place is in Wheeling ask these questions…


Does the floor covering need to be green flooring? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or a cork flooring sale item? 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 something that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider floor covering for a Wheeling basement with a concrete slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional visitors. Then, our best selection is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork flooring offers simple cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are required 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 Wheeling House?

Cork floor covering is warmer than laminate floor covering, hardwood flooring and bamboo floor covering, as well as ceramic tiles and slate flooring.


One extra key feature of cork floor covering that many Wheeling  homewners may dismiss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not cling to the floor. Cork floor maintenance is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The house’s indoor air quality will improve dramatically once cork flooring has been laid down in.


Cork is quiet and warm… Cork flooring is also very forgiving. This means that pet traffic and kid traffic on the cork can be hidden with cork’s texture. Small indentations will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate floor covering, hardwood flooring or discount cork floor covering, where the depressions would likely be more permanent.


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Wheeling  couples will enter making a floor covering 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.
