How To Decide What Type of Flooring To Install In Your Richmond County House

Are you going to be shopping for new floor covering in the upcoming months?

Think about which area of your Richmond County house it will be laid down in. 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 infant’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or special care may be required?

What Type 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 installing over existing slate flooring, engineered hardwood flooring or laminate flooring?

Decide What Are Your Top Priorities For The Flooring

Does the flooring need to be ecologically friendly 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 floor covering with cork underlayment? Does it need to be right for wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be something that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo flooring, laminate flooring, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider floor covering for a Richmond County basement with a concrete slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional family. Then, our best pick 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 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 Richmond County Residence?

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


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


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


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Richmond County  people will enter making a floor covering selection. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is installed, the condition of the subfloor, and top priorities for the floor covering, you will be able to narrow it down to the best fit for your residence.
