Flooring Options, Installation and Repair
There are many options for flooring and installation these days. Whether you do it yourself or hire a flooring contractor, you will find many options for types of flooring. One of the most popular flooring choices for a new home and for renovations is hardwood. Hardwood not only gives a clean look within a home, but is considered to be distinguished and classic by most homeowners. While there have been a number of flooring options available in the past, homeowners today have added options to consider thanks to the international trend of living a more green lifestyle, that includes using reclaimed wood and sustainable materials.
Reclaimed wood refers to repurposing wood from other projects to utilize when creating a hardwood floor. The technique both creates a vintage feel and reduces the need to harvest additional trees for the project, allowing it to be considered a green renovation or home building technique. Yet another green technique is to consider bamboo floors over other wood choices as this particular tree is considered to be a sustainable product. Sustainable products re-generate in the wild quicker, allowing the renovation project to create little to no negative environmental impact. In this section you can read up on many different flooring options, from hardwoods to laminates, to bamboo, carpeting and more.
