How To Choose What Type of Flooring To Install In Your Manhattan Beach Residence
Are you going to be searching for new floor covering in the near future?
Consider which area of your Manhattan Beach house it will be installed. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, stair treads, living room flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a baby’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant flooring or particular attention may be required?
What Sort Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?
Is it a gypcrete or cement subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling OSB, or Plywood? Will you be laying it over existing slate flooring, click lock flooring or asbestos tile?
Decide What Are Your Major Goals For The Floor Covering
If your place is in Manhattan Beach ask these questions…
Does the floor covering need to be green 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 floor? Does it need to be a quiet floor like rubber tile, cork flooring including cork underlayment, or engineered wood floor covering with cork underlayment? Does it need to be suitable for damp areas like roofing slate or slate tile? Does it need to be something that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo floors, laminate floors, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?
Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example
Let’s consider floor covering for a Manhattan Beach 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 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 required 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 Manhattan Beach House?
One additional key feature of cork flooring that many Manhattan Beach homewners may miss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet fur will not stick to the floor. Cork floor upkeep is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The home’s indoor air quality will improve considerably once cork flooring has been put in.
Cork flooring is also very forgiving. This means that pet traffic and children traffic on the cork can be hidden with cork’s texture. Small depressions will pop up over time. This is very different from laminate floor covering, hardwood floor covering or discount cork flooring, where the depressions would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Manhattan Beach 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 place.
