What are the best waterproof flooring options available on the market?
When it comes to choosing flooring for our bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and mudrooms, it’s important that we consider the best waterproof flooring options for these areas. Waterproof flooring prevents moisture from seeping into the flooring, and this in turn prevents the flooring from warping. The best waterproof flooring styles include:
How do I measure for flooring, and when should an expert be hired?
Measuring is an important factor to consider when estimating the amount of flooring you'll have to order and how much it will cost. To get a basic idea, use a standard tape measure to measure the length and width of your room. Include a diagram of each room and write down all measurements to improve efficiency. Further, multiply the length and width of each room to get the total square footage per area. It's important to note when measuring for carpet, all rooms must be measured in the same direction; it's better to consider contacting an expert from our store to come do a free measurement for greater precision and accuracy. This also ensures that the customers don't order and pay for more flooring than is needed.
What is the cost difference between the different types of flooring products?
The cost of flooring does play an integral role in your selection, but it’s important not to forget the lifestyle and use of the flooring. With so many flooring options available on the market, the price of flooring can vary within each category. By setting a budget, you can begin to narrow your flooring selection. After you have set a budget, its best if you consult one of our experts at Manufacturers Carpet & Flooring to find the right fit.
When is the best time to do your flooring renovations?
Flooring renovations can be done throughout the year; therefore, there really isn't a best time to do a renovation. Although, it is easier to install and deliver flooring in the spring and summer, as compared to winter. The power remains in the hands of the customer as to when they would like to get their products ordered and installed.
How do I get started?
The best way to get started for your flooring renovations is to choose your preferred flooring style for each area/room, set a budget, pick a colour scheme, and think about your lifestyle. The next step would to be to book an appointment with our amazing team at Manufacturers Carpet & Flooring to begin the search for your dream floors. Further, if you're having trouble picking and matching colours, we also have an interior design team that can help you make the right choice.
What is the estimated lead-time for products ordered?
Once a customer has chosen their desired flooring it can take up to 7-10 business days for your product to come in. However, at Manufacturers we have a large in-stock inventory that our customers can choose from. We have a variety of different flooring types, styles, and colours; thus having no lead-time.
Can you install Luxury Vinyl Planks (LVP) or Laminate without a professionals help?
We do not recommend that our clients install their LVP or laminate flooring, although these two types of flooring are known for being DIY. Every flooring job will likely pose a new challenge as not every house/building is built in the same manner; making it very difficult for customers to install their flooring to perfection. But do not worry, as we have very talented installers. We employ very experienced and knowledgeable installers, who specialize in installing a variety of different flooring products.
Why is it important that you have high-quality installation done?
Having a high-quality installation makes the biggest difference in the appearance of your flooring. An installation that is done right and to perfection can make budget-friendly flooring look high-end. Further, mistakes made during the installation process can compromise the functionality, appearance, and lifespan of your flooring. To avoid unwanted spending, it's important to get the job done by the right people with the right skills.
