Flooring Options

Flooring is one of the most important features of any home. We offer you advice to make decisions on what flooring is best suited for your home. Our top selections include LVP, hardwood, and tile. Keep reading for more information.

Luxury Vinyl Planks

Luxury vinyl planks offers homeowners both durability and style. LVP looks modern and sleek, and is perfect for a wide range of styles. LVP is becoming increasingly popular because it comes in a variety of style and color combinations, all of which are waterproof and resistant to damage. Upkeep and maintenance of LVP is relatively easy and hassle free. Normal everyday sweeping and mopping maintains the product to last a long time.  A large number of our clients have used LVP in living rooms, great rooms, and other large rooms. This flooring type is the most economical, durable, and all around most used. LVP is extremely affordable and performs better than other flooring options.


Hardwood is both elegant and looks classy. It provides a timeless, classic look that can be used in almost any interior design. There are a variety of different hardwood options to choose from including popular types like  oak, maple, and cherry. While one of the more expensive flooring options with maintenance and upkeep requirements, it is does provide many benefits. Not only does it increase the value of your home, but it also helps your home’s resale value. Ordinary scratching and other normal wear can be repaired with sanding and refinishing, and if necessary a hardwood craftsman can replace individual boards.

Tile & Stone

Tile is all around a great product. It is very durable and resistant to damage, including water. One of the most appealing aspects of tile is the wide variety it comes in any pattern and material - from porcelain, to sandstone, and everything in between. Tile is also easily cleaned and does not typically show stains. Tile can be one of the more expensive options. Often, tile is cold, and heating systems for tile flooring can get expensive. So, depending on where you live, title may not be the best option, especially if your new home is being built in a state with cold winters. Another reason homeowners tend to steer away from tile is that cracks or other big damages to tile are difficult to repair.
