It’s that time of year for summer barbecues and pool parties. At Dobson’s Flooring America, we carry a diverse selection of the highest quality flooring products to accommodate different styles of summer fun.
Are you looking to upgrade your flooring as a summer project? Are you not sure where to start? Ask yourself, “What is most important to me: fashion, durability or price?” Your answer will help to focus in on the appropriate flooring choice for you. A consultation with a trained flooring professional can make the selection process easy and educational.
Rooms that are prone to getting wet require special consideration- not just kitchens and baths, but rooms that connect directly to a pool or patio area too. Moisture-sensitive products such as wood flooring just don’t perform well in these areas. Fortunately, there is a wide array of other attractive options available at your nearest Dobson’s Flooring America showroom.
Flooring Options to Consider
One of the toughest waterproof types of flooring is luxury vinyl. Vinyl flooring today is not your grandmother’s kitchen linoleum. Today’s luxury vinyl can look like wood planks or ceramic tile. It is so realistic that you cannot tell the difference from the real products. It can make a fashion statement in any room in the house, not just kitchens and baths. Vinyl is not only durable and easy to clean, but also easy to repair if damage does occur.
Another attractive option for waterproof, and highly long-lasting, flooring is tile. Tile flooring comes in a couple of styles from basic peel and stick to more durable porcelain tiles. Porcelain tiles are easy to clean and require very little maintenance. Porcelain tiles offer many options in style and selection, as well as endless design possibilities. Porcelain tiles come in styles that look exactly like natural stone, without the high cost of authentic natural stone products.
Ceramic tiles offer another waterproof hard-flooring solution for your summer fun. Although some are more challenging to install, however, if properly installed and sealed, ceramic tiles are a cost-effective option. Ceramic tiles are great for a pool house with showers to rinse off after an afternoon in the pool. Ceramic tiles come in a wide selection of sizes and colors.
Although carpet can be damaged by excessive moisture, waterproof carpet padding can certainly protect against this damage. Wet carpet itself dries out fairly quickly, but unprotected foam padding underneath can remain wet and cause mildew to form and eventually damage the carpet backing. There are various types of waterproof padding. Your flooring professional can explain the features and benefits of each variety.
