Choosing a Type of Flooring

Flooring can be generally grouped into four categories: hardwood, carpet, resilient flooring, and tile. The maintenance requirements vary widely across the groups and within them as well. Before you make a flooring selection, be sure you truthfully assess the needs of your household and how much time and money you can afford to invest in the care of the floor. Flooring can have a large impact on a home’s resale value and its overall appearance and livability, and you will want the best possible return on this long-term investment. With a little research and the help of a good contractor, you can select a material, or several, that will not only provide a functional, durable foundation for everyday living but also enhance your lifestyle.
