How To Choose What Type of Flooring To Put In Your Philadelphia County Place
Are you going to be shopping for new flooring in the near future?
Consider which area of your Philadelphia County residence it will be put in. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or workout room flooring? Will it be installed in a infant’s room or another location where ADA compliant flooring or particular care may be required?
What Kind Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?
Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, Oriented Strand Board (OSB), or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing ceramic tiles, bamboo flooring or asbestos tile?
Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Floor Covering
If your place is in Philadelphia County ask these questions…
Does the floor covering need to be ecofriendly 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 flooring with cork underlayment? Does it need to be right for wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be floor covering that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?
Let’s Take A Flooring Example
Let’s consider flooring for a Philadelphia County basement with a cement slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional family. Then, our top selection is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork flooring 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 Philadelphia County Home?
One extra key feature of cork flooring that many Philadelphia County homewners may dismiss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and animal fur will not cling to the floor. Cork floor maintenance is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The house’s indoor air quality will improve significantly once cork flooring has been put in.
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 dents 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 Philadelphia County homeowners will enter making a floor covering decision. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is laid down, 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.
