Different Types of Flooring Materials

by Amelia White Business Analyst

There are different kinds of flooring materials available. You need to choose the one that suits your need and budget the best. Have a look at some of the most popular flooring options.



Laminate


Also popular as cheap version of wood, laminate is a workhorse. It is very much durable and it hardly fades. It is resistant to stains and its installation is also quite simple. Although laminate floor has a lot of advantages, it does not make the home very worthy from the viewpoint of the buyer. If it discolors, rehabilitating or refinishing the material would be a hard job. Another downside its is susceptibility to damage from the standing water.


Carpet


Carpet is a very popular option. It is an economical way of covering the entire house or a room. There are different kinds of textures, colours, designs and patterns of carpets available. You can choose the one that suits the interior d├ęcor of your house. If carpet gets damaged repairing is also easy. If it gets damaged due to hot iron burns or stains, there are many carpet repair and restoration companies that can help owners with carpet patching and invisible mending in Perth. If it gets damaged due to flood or if bulges and ripples are formed on carpet, then also these carpet repair and restoration companies are there to deal with all these problems.


Stone


Thick, strong stone that's used to cover up the floor is a choice for ages. Moreover, it is hardly destructible. It can be there for a long time. Stone floors have a classic appearance. They can add value to the home. After all, finished and sealed stone is even moisture and water resistant. Stone flooring isn't cheap. It gets slippery if wet. Installing it is also somewhat difficult. It requires daily cleaning for maintenance.


Hardwood


Hardwood floors have great value. But it is a very expensive option for covering the floor. If you have hardwood floors installed in your property, you can be sure that you will get a good selling point if you want to put your house on market. Even if it has turned old and has worn out, you will still not have anything to worry about. You can get it refinished. Using hardwood in corporate offices has both advantages as well as disadvantages. Although it gives an inviting look, it is very much sensitive to warping from excessive moisture. This kind of flooring is not eye-friendly as well when it comes to dents and dings.


Tiles


Tiles are a great solution for high traffic areas in a house. Its benefit over stone is that it is very easy to replace. But this kind of flooring is very much durable. Although they are basically indestructible in nature cracking and chipping of tiles take place when heavy objects are dropped on them.
