How to Get the Right Flooring for Your House

Q: What’s the secret to getting the right flooring for my home?

A: It does seem like there must be a secret to finding the perfect floor. Pretty much every homeowner whether in the building stage or renovation stage dreams of living in that home with perfect, even enviable, flooring.  But don’t be bewildered by the options. ACo can help you get started with these tips below.

Your location

The location of your house is an important ingredient in your purchase decision. Knowing how different flooring materials will respond to your environment can help you with your selection. Some factors that can affect materials:

  • Heat
  • Humidity
  • Altitude
  • Cold
  • Frequent flooding
  • Dry climate

It’s important to consult with experts prior to making your decision in order to ensure your flooring will last.

Check the foundation

Prior to installing the new flooring, it is important to check the foundation of the house. Your new floors will look their best and last the longest when the foundation is flat, firm, and stable. You may find that sections of the subflooring or foundation need to be fixed. It is always worth the time and hassle to make sure your floors are installed properly the first time.

Your tastes

Your house should reflect your style and tastes. Do you like contemporary designs or a more traditional look? Flooring is the (literal) base for your décor so choosing something that complements the rest of your home is important. Here are just a few options:

  • Hardwood
  • Carpet
  • Stone tiles
  • Bamboo
  • Cork
  • Concrete
