Q&A: All About Flooring — Hardwood, Carpeting, Tiling, Laminate

Posted by

flooringQUESTION: I’m thinking about installing new flooring in my home. What are some of the pros and cons of the most popular flooring types?

ANSWER: Choosing the flooring in your home is an important decision, but since several flooring types exist, making a decision can be difficult. Hardwood flooring is both highly attractive and durable. However, hardwood flooring needs frequent maintenance and can warp.

Carpet is a great flooring option if you want something inexpensive that feels great underfoot. However, carpet floorings are also vulnerable to stains and wear out relatively quickly compared to other floors.

Tile is beneficial because it has a long lifespan, is available in several styles, and is simple to clean. Tile floors can be more challenging to install, can break over time, and require regular grout cleaning.

Laminate floors offer a low-cost, easy installation and standard pre-finish. However, these floors are vulnerable to moisture damage and can’t be refinished.
