How To Decide What Category of Flooring To Install In Your East Flatbush Home
Are you going to be looking for new floor covering in the near future?
Consider which area of your East Flatbush residence it will be installed. Will it be basement flooring, kitchen flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a baby’s room or another location where ADA compliant floor covering or special attention may be required?
What Sort Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?
Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, OSB, or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing linoleum flooring, click lock flooring or laminate flooring?
Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Flooring
If your house is in East Flatbush ask these questions…
Does the floor covering need to be sustainable floor covering? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or discount cork flooring? 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 right for wet areas like roofing slate or slate tile? Does it need to be flooring that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo flooring, laminate floors, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?
Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example
Let’s consider flooring for a East Flatbush basement with a concrete slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional visitors. Then, our top choice is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork floor covering offers easy cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are needed to install 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 East Flatbush House?
One extra key feature of cork flooring that many East Flatbush homewners may dismiss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and animal hair will not stick 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 installed.
Cork flooring is also very forgiving. This means that animal traffic and kid traffic on the cork can be masked with cork’s texture. Small dents will pop up over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood flooring or discount cork flooring, where the dents would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which East Flatbush homeowners 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 house.
