Choosing the right floor begins with an evaluation of your needs and wants. Every type of surface has its own specific pros and cons. Of course, everything ultimately depends on your requirements as well as personal preferences.

Before deciding on any type of flooring for your home, take these into account:

Room-specific Conditions

The function of the room you plan to install flooring with the help of Flooring Contractor Pittsburgh PA in has an impact on which surface is best to use. Carpeting is obviously not right for your kitchen, considering this area is prone to food and liquid spillage. The point is, choose a surface that is appropriate for the use of the the room.

Your Lifestyle and Household

If there are children in your home, get flooring that can take loads of banging and running around. Some laminate products may be better in this situation compared to site-finished solid wood because of the durability of laminate. Still, plenty of engineered wood floors (wood flooring that has been pre-finished in the factory) are coated with very surfaces as durable as laminate. Tough surfaces are great for cleanup from shedding pets, while carpeting is likely to retain pet hair and dander. On the other hand, claws will probably scratch a wood floor. If you have large dogs with large claws, get tile or wood/laminate flooring that has the most durable surface.

Health Concerns

Carpeting provides a great environment for allergens which are more easily removed from hard surfaces. Carpet and other floor materials used by Flooring Resurfacing Pittsburgh PA also have more VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that could be unhealthy, most especially for individuals who are very sensitive to airborne pollutants. In such a case, get something with less VOC emissions.

Care & Maintenance Requirements

There are materials that have bigger maintenance needs than the others - that is, if you'd like their aesthetic appeal to remain. Wood must be swept or vacuumed frequently to prevent it from dulling and getting scratched by ground-in dirt. Stone or tile is durable, but dulling can happen when it is not regularly swept. In areas that might be exposed to standing water, such as the basement, vinyl or tile is better than wood.

Style/Aesthetics and Economy

If you've always loved the look of Brazilian Cherry but it's too expensive for you, get its laminate equivalent and you'll be amazed that they can look exactly alike - and you pay a whole lot less money! If you're building a new house or remodeling your existing home, you can make those savings go a longer way by spending it on other important parts of the project, like upgrading your appliances or maybe constructing additional cabinets.

Testing

Lastly, drop by those building supply stores or showrooms personally if you can. Pictures and articles are great, but actually seeing things yourself and standing on them can help you make wiser decisions.
