Answers To The Most Common Questions About Flooring

To determine how much flooring you need, it’s important that you make accurate measurements of the room or rooms that you will be installing new flooring. While some rooms may be perfect squares, in may cases, accurately measuring your flooring will be more difficult. Do your best to make as accurate of measurements as you can, and we always recommend adding 5-10% additional material to account for waste.

Due to the cost involved in installation, and the mix of appearance and durability, a good hardwood floor, in most cases, will offer you the best resale value for your property. 

Wood is a natural product that will expand and contract based on the environment that it is in. This can pose huge problems if you install the wood flooring immediately without letting the material acclimate to your home first. Most manufacturers recommend that any hardwood product be acclimated in the space that it will be installed for no less than 72 hours. 

Hardwood floors are naturally resistant to damage and scratches from furniture, but we’ve all been there when someone scratched the floor moving a piece of furniture. An easy fix for this would be to purchase and install small felt pads on the feet of your furniture. You might also consider using an area rug, which offer a great feel while not covering up your beautiful wood floors.

The longest lasting floors are ones that are well taken care of. But when it comes down to types of flooring, the best options for long term durability are ceramic tile or a true hardwood.

Pets, as much as we love them, can be hard on floors. Scratches and stains are a real concern for any pet owner, but having the right flooring can minimize those concerns. Our recommendation is to choose something that is durable and stain resistant like luxury vinyl, UV coating on hardwood floors, or tile.

Yes! Vinyl flooring is highly durable, long lasting, and resistant to moisture, scratches, and dents.

Yes! Vinyl flooring is backed with PVC, a waterproof material. This construction makes it an ideal choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and even basements.

Yes! Laminate flooring is made up of three layers: wear layer, print layer, and fiberboard. The first layer makes the floor scratchproof and waterproof. This type of flooring is known to be install-where-you-want because of its versatility.

UV floor coating is a method of curing a liquid urethane floor coating that takes mere seconds to dry. Compared to the standard floor coating, which can last up to a month, this option is incredibly appealing and offers several benefits beyond just drying time. Our UV floor coating helps protect your floors with an eco-friendly ceramic water-base finish. This makes it the ideal option for commercial sites. We are the only flooring company in Dane County, WI that offers UV floor coating application service.
