We all have watched a home improvement show on HGTV and had the thought that it must be easy to renovate; a young couple meet Chip and JoAnna Gaines and then they have a newly remodeled home worth more than the market value. Others watch shows about flipping homes and making money like Flip or Flop. With shows like these, we all have thoughts of grandeur and want to try our hand at making our own renovations. However, the shows make this look much easier than it tends to be in real life.
You can read hundreds of blogs, newspaper articles, and other sites and they will also talk about flipping homes or renovations. Each one can list many items that can add value to any home. The only real similarity between them: flooring. Redoing the flooring throughout the house is always on the list no matter who you get the information from. Flooring is a great way to add value to any home. However, choosing the flooring for that house can be a tough thing to do. Most of the online sources will tell you that hardwood flooring is the option for you. But sometimes the budget or subfloor cannot handle that kind of purchase.
So, if your budget or subfloor doesn’t allow for the dream hardwood flooring, what are you to do? You can always go with carpet, but some families want a hard surface flooring. You have quite a few options that could fit into your initial budget: sheet vinyl, vinyl plank, luxury vinyl plank, and laminate. Each of these options offer advantages for you and the home you are remodeling.
We know that shopping for flooring can be overwhelming with a sea of brands and manufacturers to choose from. However, we try to make this process as simple as possible from the moment you step through our doors until the moment your flooring is installed. That is why we have our motto: simplicity, style, and expertise.
