Flooring Options

We ask of our customers what they wished they did differently after purchasing and owning a new floor for 6 months. We asked if they wished they spent less money on their floor. They told us they wished they spent more. Spending 20 cents more on 800 square feet seemed like a deal after owning the floor for 6-12 months to get what they really wanted. Let’s avoid that, shall we? Please look into our blog posts on all the flooring options to get a good idea of what to expect from different types of flooring. We have the best prices in the US. You can see that’s why we proudly show all our flooring prices without trying to trick you into emailing us to simply shop for floors. Price isn’t the issue for us here, making you happy is the main concern for us. Don’t hesitate to give our flooring consultants a call if you have any questions at all about finding the best floors for your home.
