Learn About Vinyl

Everything you need to make an educated decision

There is no doubt a welcoming warmth that comes from a beautiful hard wood floor adorning a home, or the endless style options that tile can allow for. Unfortunately, both products often come with a sizable price tag that can deter many buyers from gracing their homes with wood, ceramic, or porcelain. Enter vinyl solutions. Sheet vinyl, LVT, and rigid core products are all excellent alternatives coming in at many different price points while offering various application benefits. One of the most often asked questions in our showroom is what the difference is between all the vinyl flooring options, and which would work best. Hopefully, this will help clear the air in this category and educate buyers as they begin searching for their new floor.

Types Of Vinyl Flooring

We’ll get things started with sheet vinyl, since it is probably the oldest in the category.  Sheet vinyl, previously know as linoleum, is often the cheapest hard surface flooring product that you can put in a home. It mainly comes in a 12-foot roll width, though some come 6 feet wide. If the product is going over a wood substrate, it requires a wood underlayment that the vinyl is then adhered to, and if it’s going over concrete, it gets glued directly to it. However, since the product glues directly to the concrete, it will only be as smooth and level as the concrete underneath. This means expansions joints need to be filled and any significant high points or rough patches need grinding. If the vinyl is going over a wood substrate, then underlayment is nailed down and sanded smooth to prevent any textures from transposing through the material. Vinyl can also install over existing vinyl, as long as the existing vinyl is still adhered well, and any texture is embossed to smooth it. If the area is larger than the width of the vinyl, it requires seaming multiple pieces together. Something to be aware of with vinyl is pattern match. Most vinyl products have some form of pattern on them, and that pattern only repeats so often. This means if there is a seam in a room, enough excess vinyl must be ordered so that the pattern can repeat seamlessly. This often leads to more yards needing to be ordered than the net size of the area. Affordability and design options are excellent advantages of vinyl, but the largest disadvantage is durability. Vinyl can be subject to tearing if furniture is slid across it, or from large dog claws romping around. The positive feature regarding wear and tear is that it is waterproof, making it appropriate in kitchens and laundry rooms.  Hopefully this helps you understand some of the characteristics of sheet vinyl; now we can focus on luxury vinyl tile.

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) or luxury vinyl plank (LVP), as some refer to it, is basically a more durable, planked version of sheet vinyl.  Instead of being a rolled product, this comes in planks or tiles. The installation preparation is the same as vinyl, as far as underlaying, prepping concrete, or going over existing vinyl goes. However, the product is not rolled out and seamed together.  Instead, the planks or tiles are glued individually and laid in a desired pattern. Most of the planked pieces are designed to mimic the look of wood, whereas the tiles often replicate true ceramic tiles or slate. LVT does not commonly offer the range of patterns that sheet vinyl does. Where LVT has a leg up on sheet vinyl is in the durability segment. Most rolled vinyl is paper backed or vinyl backed, neither of which is particularly robust, but LVT has a composite back that does allow flexing, but isn’t nearly as malleable. For instance, a piece of vinyl can be folded in half and laid back out again (though it would damage it), but a piece of LVT would snap before folding due to its harder backing.  On top of the backing lies the design piece and then a wear layer. Higher priced LVT products commonly have a thicker wear layer. Most LVT products are so durable that they even carry commercial application warranties. LVT comes in a range of prices depending on the style and wear layer, but in general it is slightly more expensive than sheet vinyl.

Our final flooring product of this post is commonly referred to as waterproof core or rigid core flooring. I say “commonly” because various vendors use different names for the category, but they all share similar performance attributes. Rigid core is one of the newer technologies to come into the flooring scene within the last decade and can be explained as rigid vinyl flooring with an expanded foam core, polymer core, or stone core. The flooring is waterproof, rigid, and offer tremendous stability. Rigid core flooring is so stable that it can be installed directly over the subfloor or existing floor without requiring surface preparation. Rigid core products install just like laminate, meaning it’s a click together floating floor. The biggest advantage of rigid core over laminate is that the rigid core’s polymer can withstand water, unlike the compressed core of laminate. Rigid core flooring is also not subject to the floor break restrictions that laminates are. Some rigid core floors come with an attached pad, and others require it separately, but either way some additional comfort and sound dampening is provided.              

Those are the ins and outs of the various vinyl product offering. Hopefully that helps direct you toward which type of flooring is most suitable for your type of flooring. If you still have questions, give us a call or swing by – we’re always happy to help!

If you like the look of wood, but not its susceptibility to scratching, you’ve come to the right place. Laminate is a floating floor with superior scratch resistance due to the durability qualities of its surface. This category is a remarkable choice for your home if you have large dogs or heavily trafficked areas, such as entryways or hallways, causing wear to the current floors. In addition to its impressive longevity, laminate is also much more affordable than real wood, making it available to many more customers.

Learn About Laminate Flooring

Everything you need to make an educated decision

A laminate floor is a great way to add beauty and warmth to your home while not exceeding the family budget. The 21st century laminate floor offers an active family a low cost, low maintenance, durable, and beautiful way to decorate their home and enhance their lifestyle. Installation cost is also generally lower because laminate floors can be laid directly over many existing surfaces.

Laminate floors began to migrate from Europe 25 to 30 years ago primarily because of their low cost and ease of installation. The original product was durable and cost effective, but not necessarily a high quality simulation of real wood, tile, or stone.

Today, laminate floor manufacturers take advantage of dramatic technical advances to produce life-like wood, tile and stone designs. In many cases, you cannot tell the difference between a laminate and the real thing without close inspection.

When maintained properly, a laminate floor will provide years of service. The product itself is extremely durable. Coupled with the melamine surface, your floor should withstand most use and abuse that an active family can do to a floor. Low cost, low maintenance, and a long product life all make laminate floors a great value. View our selection of laminate flooring in our Colorado Springs showroom to find your ideal style.

Melamine resins are used to create the top wear surface. It’s the same technology used to create counter tops and is extremely durable to stains, scratches, burns and sun fade. Laminate flooring is an engineered construction and gives the look of real wood, ceramic tile and stone. The product has levels of wear layers, ranging from 7-10 mils. Its thickness can also vary from 7 mm to 12 mm. Laminate flooring can be installed on all grade levels. It also can be used in commercial applications.

Although very durable, laminate floors are not impervious to dulling and wear. Some simple tips for keeping your floor looking new are:

Frequently sweep or vacuum to remove dirt and grit.
Place mats at outside doors to catch dirt, grit, and oil.
Place protectors under all furniture. Lift; do not slide furniture when moving.
Keep your pets’ nails trimmed.
Never wax your floor.
Mop occasionally-avoid excessive water on you floor.
Only clean or remove spots with manufacturer approved products.

As the leading flooring store in Colorado Springs, we carry a large collection of realistic wood laminate flooring options featuring a variety of colors and patterns.

Hardwood is undoubtedly the most timeless flooring product, adding a dash of class to any home. At Floor Craft, you will find numerous prefinished, site finished, and engineered hardwood options, in addition to a multitude of site finish samples. We have expertise in all hardwood flooring categories and would love to help you choose which route is right for you.

HARDWOOD FOR SALE COLORADO SPRINGS: STYLE AND BENEFITS

How to choose a hardwood floor can seem overwhelming. Hardwood floors add a timeless beauty and warmth to your home. They say this is my home, not just another house. They are a reflection of who you are and your personal style. They are welcoming and inviting and can complement any décor. At Floor Craft, our hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs will not only add value to your home but may last as long as your home itself.

The finishes on hardwood flooring have improved dramatically. No longer do you need to wax them periodically. Typically, today’s hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs offers numerous coats of durable urethane sealers that not only are hard but are scratch and scuff resistant.

With all of today’s options, deciding how to choose the hardwood floor that is right for you is important. There are now many different species of wood to choose from. Not just North American woods, but exotics from all over the world. This variety and the variety of colors available for hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs allows you to create a look that is uniquely yours and at a price you can afford.

Durable, timeless, warm, low maintenance and an endless choice of styles and colors make hardwood floors a great choice for your home.

Hardwood floors are extremely durable and will last a lifetime when you choose the right product for your lifestyle. Your flooring expert will guide you to the right choice if you share information about what room you are planning to install the floor in, do you have kids or pets, etc. We have many types of hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs because not everyone’s lifestyle is the same.

Pre-finished or manufacturer-finished, hardwood floors typically offer 6-10 layers of UV cured layers of polyurethane which is very hard and tough. Many factories are now adding Aluminum Oxide to the urethane for additional protection against abrasion and wear. There are several other technologies available that offer added protection against wear and abrasion. Again, ask your flooring expert to explain the difference of the hardwood for sale here in Colorado Springs. Site-finished hardwoods are also extremely durable, although not as much as those finished at the factory.

Finally, the hardness of the wood you choose will also affect its performance. A softer wood like pine is more likely to dent than a hardwood like oak.

To sum it up, hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs is one of the most durable, long lasting products you can put in your home if properly maintained.

There are two types of construction in hardwood flooring, solid and engineered. Floor Craft offers both types of hardwood for sale in Colorado Springs.

Solid hardwood is 100% solid wood, it can be nailed or stapled to a wooden sub floor above grade. It is not recommended for installation on concrete because it is susceptible to expansion in high moisture areas and will shrink in high temps and high heat applications.

Engineered hardwood is also 100% wood that is manufactured from 3, 5 or 7 thin sheets of plies of wood that are stacked on top of each other in opposite directions then glued with high pressure. This process is called Cross-Ply construction that, when finished, makes the product dimensionally-stable. The advantage of cross-ply construction is it will not grow in high moisture conditions or shrink in low humidity or high heat conditions. You can install on or above grade on wood and on concrete sub floors.

Edge detail is the way the sides and ends of the planks are cut. They can include beveled, square, eased and micro bevel. The different edge details will have a dramatic effect on the look of your new floor. For example, if you want the look of a furniture finish, the square edge would give you that look. If you are looking for a more casual effect, a beveled edge would be a good choice.

Hardness is also a factor when determining how to choose the hardwood floor species of wood to select for your new floor. With the many different species available today, each has its own rating, which will determine how well the floor will react to wear. The method used here is the Janka Hardness test.

How to choose the hardwood floor species that is right for your new floor is very important for how the floor is going to wear in different traffic conditions.

Now that you’ve determined how to choose your hardwood floor, the next step is maintenance. Luckily, maintaining your hardwood floors is now easier than ever.  Remember, dirt, grit, dust particles, and water are enemies of hardwood floors. Just follow these basic guidelines to extend the life of your flooring in Colorado Springs:

  • Never wax your floors. Wax will dull the finish.
  • Sweep regularly with a broom or vacuum with a vacuum that does not have a beater bar or brush. Dirt and grit can cause scratches to the finish.
  • Door mats provide a first line of defense and prevent dirt and grit from being tracked onto your floors.
  • Excessive water causes wood to expand and swell and eventually crack. It could also possibly break the glue seal with the sub floor. Wipe up spills quickly. Do not mop with excessive amounts of water.
  • Only use manufacturer recommended cleaners to clean your floors. Typical household cleaners will dull the finish and reduce the performance of your floors.
  • Add leg protectors to all furniture

Learn About Tile and Stone

Everything you need to make an educated decision

Tile and stone conjure up images of buildings and sculptures that have withstood the test of time. Consider the Parthenon, the Forum, Michelangelo’s David, and Versailles, just to name a few examples. Not only are these structures durable and timeless, but their natural beauty is beyond compare. When looking to make the ultimate statement in your own castle, the use of tile and stone is the natural choice.

The tile and stone category offers endless options which enable you to create a room that shouts, “This is my style and this is my home.” You can choose from products that include ceramic tile, porcelain, glass, and a variety of natural stones including travertine, granite and marble. Each product has distinctive characteristics and looks, and varies widely in performance, cost and look. Consult your Floor Craft flooring expert about the look you are trying to create, and they will help you to design a solution that makes a statement that is all you.

Be sure to ask about the total cost of ownership. The cost of the tile or stone is only one component of the total cost. Installation and maintenance cost can vary significantly, and you should be aware of them before making your purchase. Tile is generally more cost effective than stone and easier to maintain.

Limitless best describes the design options available to you. You will be delighted with the choices in shape, size, and color, and potential combinations you can create. Tile and stone will let you create your own work of art that is a distinct reflection of you.

Tile and stone will outlast and outperform most other flooring and wall applications. Individual product performance will vary due to its density, sealant or glaze and how porous it is.

Ceramic tile and porcelain usually have a rating of 1 to 5 for their overall durability and abrasion resistance, with 5 being the most durable. Check the label to see the rating.

Stone varies greatly in its density, which affects its durability. Granite and marble are denser than most other stones, so they will perform better. It is similar to the differences in the hardness of woods. Oak is harder than pine. Generally, stone needs to be sealed for most applications.

Consult with your Floor Craft flooring expert to see which product best suits the combination of your design needs, performance needs, and what your pocketbook will bear.

 

There are many types of tile and stone depending on your needs. Examples include glazed ceramic tile, porcelain tile, glass tile, granite, and marble.

Glazed ceramic tile has a body of natural earth materials such as clay and has two layers – the body consists of natural material, and the top layer, which is the glaze. The tiles are molded in forms and then fired in high temperature ovens. When finished, the tiles are very durable and water resistant. Glazed ceramic tiles are available in many different sizes, shapes and gloss levels. They can be installed indoors on floors, used for back splashes, and installed in showers.

Porcelain tile is the hardest and most dense tile that is available today. Porcelain tile is a solid body tile, which means the color is all the way through the tile. Porcelain tile is fired at much higher temperatures and under extreme pressure, with thru body color. If chipped, you will not see the natural material as you would with glazed ceramic. Porcelain tile can be used in many more applications than glazed ceramic can, such as indoor, outdoor, floors, walls, back splashes, showers, and heavy commercial installations. They also come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and colors to accent any home décor.

Glass tile is available in many different shapes, sizes and colors, and can range from opaque to opalescent and in many different textures. Glass tiles are an excellent way to accent many installations such as back splashes, showers and floors. They also come in many different mosaic configurations for use on wall and floors.

Granite is an all-natural stone which is very hard and comes in many sizes and shapes. Granite has many applications in the home for counter tops, floors and walls. Granite also is a rectified tile, which means you can adjust the grout width from 1/4 of an inch to 1/16 of an inch to give a more solid look to the installation.

Marble flooring is also a natural stone that is very durable and has many of the same uses in the home as granite.

Taking care of your natural stone does not need to be difficult. There are a few do’s and don’ts to know, but basically, you just need to use a cleaner especially designed for natural stone. Natural stone is very porous, so the best way to prevent stains is to treat the surface with a protective sealer at the time of installation.

  • Seal your grout after your floor or wall has had sufficient time to cure. The process should be repeated annually.  This is critical to prevent moisture from seeping under the product. Also, it will help to preserve the color of your grout.
  • Natural stone needs to be sealed to manufacturer specifications.
  • Grout may stain or discolor over time. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for stain removal. Pay particular care to the type of products recommended for cleaning.
  • Quickly wipe up spills or they may stain your grout and some porous stones.
  • Tile and stone require routine maintenance to retained the beauty and preserve their look. Sweep or use a vacuum (without a beater bar) to pick up dirt and grime. Dust and damp mop on a regular basis. Wipe off residue to avoid leaving a film. Avoid excess water.
  • Place floor protectors under your furniture.

When using a cleaner on natural stone, only use a neutral pH cleaner — you never want to use anything acidic on natural stone surfaces as they can ruin the surface. Never use cleaners containing acids, scouring powder, abrasive bathroom or soft kitchen cleaners, vinegar or lemon juice.

  • COLOR:  Carpet comes in many colors, from solids and tweeds to Berbers and jewels. Choosing carpet color can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Trust your instincts in coordinating colors that enhance the design of your room.
  • FIBER:  To make the right fiber choice, it’s important to consider some simple questions: Do you have children or need pet friendly carpet? Will your carpet be in a high traffic area such as a living room? Will it be exposed to direct sunlight? Will it be near an entrance from the outdoors?

  • TEXTURE:  The most popular style of carpet. Slightly twisted fibers create a textured surface with traditional styling that’s perfect for any casual room. Textured cut pile carpet performs well in high traffic areas and is available in a wide range of colors.
  • TWIST:  Tightly twisted fibers create a curled surface with contemporary styling. Twists provide resilience and comfort for active spaces and are less likely to show footprints or vacuum marks than any other style of carpet. A distinctive and upscale look for bedrooms and family rooms.
  • LOOP:  Often referred to as “Berbers,” loop pile carpets have a continuous, uncut surface that wears well in high traffic areas. Durable yet comfortable, loop piles are perfect for casual spaces with lots of activity like family rooms, dens, and playrooms.
  • PATTERN:  Unique and expressive, modern patterned carpets use cut and loop pile combinations to create a sculpted look. Available in organic, trellis and geometric designs, this carpet can evoke a dramatic feeling of style in bedrooms and living rooms.
  • BERBER:  Berber carpets were originally hand-woven rugs of the Berber people of North Africa during the Paleolithic Era. They used natural fibers to create rugs, cloaks, and other fabrics. Contemporary Berber carpets are distinguished by a loop pile construction type that looks similar to the distinct knot of original Berber carpets. They commonly contain small specks of dark color on lighter shades of background colors resembling the traditional rugs. The overall effect is a casual, cozy feel and look.

As you’ve surmised from reading this information, there is no one perfect carpet for everyone. When looking for carpets in Colorado Springs, it’s important to remember your specific lifestyle’s needs. For example, if you love the look of white carpet but have two toddlers and four energetic dogs, you might want to consider something that will more easily hide dirt and stains.

Neutral colors are the easiest to decorate with and can give a room a spacious, airy look. While beiges are the most popular, neutral colors have expanded into other color families such as grays, pale greens, sun-washed yellows, lilac and sky blue.

Curious how to choose a carpet for a bolder statement? Use a more dramatic color to add flair and create an upbeat and sophisticated room. To achieve this look. Identify a common accent color in your decor, and then find a coordinating carpet color.

As a basic rule, warm colors can add comfort to a room that lacks light, while cool greens and blues can bring a calming ambiance.

Lighter colors can make a room seem larger, while darker colors can often make it more intimate and cozy. Darker colors, Berbers, and tweeds also help disguise common soil in high traffic areas.
