In flooring installation, no matter if it pertains to wood floors or vinyl floors, you must consider a number of factors.

Hardwood floors aren’t the only type of wood floors available! What flooring type is right for you?
The skies are clearing, the roads are turning to slush, and the songbirds are beginning to return to roost in the bushes—spring is finally here! If you’re like many homeowners in the Midwest, the warming air makes you want to spring into action and do a top-down cleaning of your home. It’s time to shake off the dust and dreariness of the winter and make way for the new beginnings spring brings! Your floors, no doubt, will appreciate a bit of attention during this process, too. Water and road de-icers tracked in during the winter months can render themselves quite hard on certain floor types, and the mud brought in as the weather warms can also prove similarly.
If you live in the Plymouth area and are looking for anything from floor installation services to a hardwood flooring distributor, it’s normal to feel inundated with options, or overwhelmed with everything that could go wrong with the flooring process. You don’t want to drive all the way to the store just to have the salesperson push something on you that you don’t need—wait, what is it that you need? You like the versatility of vinyl flooring, but you’re in love with hardwood’s aesthetic, while your spouse might be leaning more toward carpeting on the basis of comfort. Buying new flooring and getting it installed is no easy task, nor is it straightforward or one to be taken lightly!
If you’re a carpet owner, you know all too well how much softness and style the flooring type brings to your home. From making any room feel a tad more comfy to creating an aesthetic statement of style, your carpet does it all, no doubt rendering it an integral part of what makes your home feel like, well, home.
Hardwood floors and wood floors alike are known for their extreme durability and longevity. There have been cases of hardwood lasting for more than a lifetime. However, their longevity depends on the type of wood used and proper maintenance on the part of the owner. Regardless, wood floors tend to be the longest-lasting flooring type out there, sometimes outlasting the original owner’s time in their homes.
Carpet has a long and nuanced history in the United States, one that perhaps speaks to its versatility as a flooring type. From nylon to polyester (PET) to triexta, carpet can be a suitable flooring type for countless different households, even those with kids and pets. Plus, it has a soft feeling underfoot that makes it ideal for people who crave a little more comfort in their day-to-day lives.
Winter is finally here! Frozen streets and holiday cheer abound. If you’ve done a proper winterization of your home, your flooring should keep going strong throughout these colder months, be it hardwood flooring, vinyl flooring, or even stone and carpet.
With snow falling all around and holiday music mumbling in the background, a perfect, picturesque winter’s night is the best time to curl up and get cozy. If you’re thinking about replacing your flooring right about now, you’re in luck. With the right flooring type, you could make a cozy winter’s night even cozier! Certain flooring types transmit heat better than others, while others simply feel soft and comfortable underfoot.
It’s finally fall in the Twin Cities, which means leaves of red and gold are falling all around and creating a breathtaking autumn landscape. But all of those beautiful autumn leaves are also falling onto your home’s roof and into your gutters, where they can end up creating clogs. What starts off as a minor clog today can end up leading to a serious problem down the road with foundation damage or even roof damage from ice dams. That’s why it’s important to think about keeping your gutters clean long before cold weather hits.
