Flooring For Remodels
Choosing flooring for a remodel can be a daunting task, especially if you aren’t even sure where to begin. Here are a couple of popular choices that may interest you!
Hardwood floors are made from the wood of a tree, the same is not the case for Bamboo. Bamboo is actually a lightweight woody grass! This is a fast-growing, regenerating plant that has the tensile strength of steel! This makes it an excellent choice for a high durable floor. It resists swelling and contraction when the weather changes. It comes pre-finished and engineered with tongue and groove joints, just like you will find with standard hard wood flooring. Bamboo is grown in controlled forests. It only takes 3 to 5 years to reach maturity. Flooring Remodel Gilbert AZ
Just like bamboo, cork is also a green flooring alternative. Cork’s wood is honeycomb like, meaning its cellular structure gives the flooring a cushion feel while walking on it. Because of this, the cork floors can also absorb vibrations and sound….and even can bounce back when dented. Cork flooring can be purchased in pre-finished tiles, in several finishes. The tiles will have a natural, non-slip surface. Cork is a great option for wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
Linoleum is popular because it is a green flooring choice as well. It is considered eco-friendly because it is made from all natural materials---it does not deplete the forest. It’s primarily made of linseed oil, rosins, and wood flour. It has no adverse health issues while making it, installing it, or disposing of it. The bactericidal properties of linoleum can stop microorganisms from multiplying. Now think of a place where you often see linoleum flooring? Yep, hospitals! Flooring Remodel Gilbert AZ
