Be sure to consider all materials when you begin your flooring upgrade. If you are a pet owner or a member of an active household, you may be surprised to find that even wood and carpet are available in brands that suit your needs. You can find a wide variety of flooring at Roman Floors & Remodeling, a flooring store in Redford Charter Township, MI.
Flooring is available in natural materials like quarried stone, hardwood, and clay-based ceramic, and porcelain. Human-made materials include luxury vinyl and laminate, both of which simulate natural materials. High-quality synthetic materials are durable and easy to maintain. This type of floor resists stains and abrasion, and many brands are waterproof.
Laminate and luxury vinyl
Laminate and luxury vinyl planks and tiles are composed of four layers: backing, core, high-tech image, and wear. Laminate flooring has a fiberboard core, so it is always warm underfoot. Luxury vinyl is waterproof, and in fact, it can tolerate standing water. Some laminate brands are waterproof, and typically, these floors repels water for up to 30 hours.
Solid wood planks can be finished in the home or the factory. Floors finished onsite have a flush look, while floors constructed of prefinished planks have a beveled look. Engineered wood, which has a plywood base and a surface layer of hardwood, can tolerate moisture. These human-made planks click and lock together, and thus, the floor floats above the subfloor.
Ceramic and porcelain
Ceramic and porcelain, a type of ceramic, are composed of coarse and kaolin clay, respectively. Porcelain is hardened in the kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic. While harder and denser porcelain naturally repels water, only glazed ceramic is waterproof. Ceramic tiles tend to come in neutral colors and standard sizes. Trendy porcelain styles include a wood or stone look.
