Offering Alternative Options Like Cork and Bamboo Flooring
Make an eco-friendly decision and choose cork flooring for your home. This material offers many advantages you may not have considered. For instance, it is naturally resistant to allergens like mold and mildew, and to pests like termites. And because it’s a type of wood, it doesn’t shed microfibers that can affect some people’s allergies.
Compared to other kinds of wood floors, cork is exceptionally comfortable. It has some give to it, but is resilient enough to spring back, so it never loses its even surface. It offers a natural cushion underfoot that can be especially helpful in rooms in which you are on your feet a lot, or if you have young children who tend to fall over.
Many people who think about corks in bottles or on cork boards may not realize how durable it is when applied to floors. Because of its resiliency and ability to bounce back, it resists abrasions and denting, which means it can last decades when properly maintained. Our experts are always happy to share cleaning and maintenance tips that allow you to get optimal beauty out of your floors well into the future.
Perhaps the most environmentally-conscious product we offer is our bamboo flooring. That’s because bamboo grows to full maturity quickly, averaging between three and five years. Made from natural vegetation, this material is considered a renewable resource that brings unprecedented benefits to the home. Bamboo floors are also incredibly easy to maintain. You don’t need to wax it or even mop it that often. Simply sweep or vacuum regularly to make sure debris doesn’t build up. This easy cleaning also means it’s healthy for your home. Because debris is so easy to clean, it means these floors won’t harbor germs and bacteria easily.
Finally, bamboo floors are slightly more water-resistant than some other wood floors, excluding engineered hardwood. This is especially good for families with children who are prone to spilling water and other liquids.
Choose Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood
Are you looking to make a serious investment—one that you know will have the biggest impact on your property value? Solid hardwood is the perfect choice. In fact, there are many homes that are decades old that have original hardwood floors. At our flooring store, we offer high-quality products that you’re sure to love. And not all solid wood looks the same, so you can cater your selection to your personal style. For instance, if you like more modern décor, you can choose an ash-colored or monochrome wood cut into wide planks. On the other hand, brown or red-colored planks are great for creating a more rustic or traditional motif.
When maintained properly, solid hardwood planks continue to impress for more than 15 years. When it reaches the end of its lifespan, it doesn’t need to be replaced. You can invest in refinishing to revitalize its original, attractive appearance.
If you are like many other customers, you want every room in your house to have hardwood flooring. However, cork floors and other types of wood don’t stand up to the heat and moisture very well without a lot of maintenance. Because of this, we recommend engineered hardwood.
This material is made up of several layers that are pressed together to form each plank. The core is typically hardwood or plywood and the top is a hardwood veneer. This means it looks and feels just like solid wood, but won’t expand or contract as much when it’s installed in a moisture-rich space. Our engineered hardwood products come in a variety of colors, sizes, and grain patterns, which means you can find something that matches your existing wood flooring.
