Whenever you purchase new flooring, there are several critical issues to consider. It may start with selecting color and design, but you’ll quickly find many other considerations that are equally as important.3 Critical Issues When Selecting Flooring

Select the right floor and you’ll be happy for years. Select incorrectly and you’ll be disappointed almost from the getgo. High traffic areas in your home need different flooring choices than low traffic areas, such as the bedrooms. Low traffic commercial locations – small business offices – require different characteristics than high traffic commercial locations – a school.

Yet regardless of which flooring material you ultimately choose, it’s important to always select the highest quality possible. Low priced products may seem like a bargain until you have stability issues soon after installation.

Choose the correct flooring for the location
Above all, flooring must fit the function. While pattern and style, color and design are important to create the look you’re going for, it’s equally important to choose characteristics that match performance.

Install it properly and according to manufacturer’s guidelines
Flooring must be installed properly by contractors or individuals who are experienced and knowledgeable about the flooring material they are working with. This isn’t a place to skimp. Fixing errors immediately after installation can be costly procedures, and in some cases can nullify your warranty altogether.

Properly maintain it
Once flooring is installed, it’s important to service and care for it according to guidelines. Every floor material has specific procedures for maintenance, from wet cleaning to sweeping, to applying finishes. If you follow the plan, your floor will have less damage potential, and remain under warranty for the extended amount of time.

Flooring isn’t a quick decision purchase; instead, it’s an investment that can last for years. If you choose wisely, you’ll be happy with your purchase and provide full life expectancy, and have the best-looking floors possible.
