Flooring Quoter:
Never has there been such an array of flooring choices for the homeowner. There's laminate flooring, hardwood flooring (the two are often confused), vinyl and good old carpet.

Choosing the correct flooring for your home means giving consideration to the amount of foot traffic the area is likely to get, what the room itself is used for, any health issues which might mean choosing a wood rather than carpet floor covering, personal preference and of course budget.

Generally the old adage - you get what you pay for - is still pretty much true. Paying more should mean you get a more durable flooring that will last that few years extra. So it's worth consulting a couple of different flooring companies before going ahead. Remember they fit flooring every day - you don't, and can advise on the best surface for each room of your home.

In particular, when choosing a wooden flooring, they come down to two types. Laminate and Hardwood flooring.

Laminate Flooring - Laminate flooring combines natural looking designs with a tough, durable finish and can be used in almost any area of the home. Laminate floors also offer realistic designs and can replicate the characteristics of the popular handscraped hardwood floors.

They're usually supplied in sections that click together, laid over an underlay surface. Finishing touches include edging and door thresholds.

The 'patterned wood appearance' is a thin laminate sheet, hence the name.

Hardwood Flooring - Solid wood flooring rather than a thin laminate covering has always been more expensive but the finish and quality is generally longer lasting and some say, more aesthetically pleasing than its cheaper laminate 'cousin'.

New colorations, wood species, and widths are available to homeowners. Besides the common North American hardwoods (such as oak, maple, hickory and ash), many wood flooring manufacturers now offer exotic hardwood species from all around the World.

Look for responsible production and sourcing when choosing a hardwood flooring company.

New production techniques mean that hardwood floors are easier than ever to maintain and keep looking good. They can also be laid in more situations and over more existing surfaces than ever before with some manufacturers claiming they don't need screwing or nailing to fixings underneath, thereby increasing their atractiveness.
