A timeless flooring option for any home style is hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring is durable, classically stylish, and environmentally friendly. It is so versatile that it can be installed in any room and always adds value to your home. The recent advancements in hardwood flooring provide an unlimited number of color options, pet-friendly flooring choices, and various price points to meet any budget.

What makes wood flooring such a great option for homeowners?
When hardwood floors are installed correctly, they can last a lifetime. If damaged, you can repair your flooring without replacing the whole floor.
Hardwood flooring is stain-resistant and easy to keep clean. Use a dry mop or vacuum (without the beater bar) regularly. Occasionally, perform a deep cleaning by mopping with a hardwood-cleaning product. This flooring can also be a better alternative than carpeting, which tends to trap debris, allergens, and dust more easily.
Hardwood floors aren’t just trendy; they’re also versatile. The look of natural wood pairs beautifully with everything from classic to modern interior design schemes in any room.
This flooring is a wise investment, as it never goes out of style. You can change the rest of your décor, and your flooring will still look fabulous.
Although this flooring has been around for centuries, today’s finishes and high-quality materials make it even stronger than the hardwood flooring of the past.
Houston Laminate Floor Installers
The advancements in laminate flooring have allowed laminate wood flooring to become an affordable and appealing flooring option. You can now achieve the look of a hardwood floor without the expense normally associated with traditional hardwood flooring.
Although laminates have no “real” wood layers, they have been engineered to create the natural textures, grain patterns, and colors sought after and expected from hardwood flooring. Laminates have various color and style options to suit anything from contemporary to rustic designs.
Laminate Flooring: Durable & Easy Maintenance
Laminate flooring is a durable option for hardwood flooring with better scratch resistance and protection from pet traffic. Cleaning laminate flooring is also a breeze; you only need a good sweeping and a light, damp mopping to clean.
Because laminate flooring isn’t as sensitive to water as natural hardwood flooring, it’s also less prone to warping. Many of our clients choose this option in areas of high humidity. You don’t want unsightly gaps where the wood begins to warp, expand or contract.
Laminate Flooring Installation: Quick & Cost-Effective
Laminate flooring is generally made of recycled paper products, and the installation requires no glue or nails. Laminate flooring clicks together, which requires the connections to be snug. We install an underlayment to reduce noise and provide cushioning below the flooring material. The installation process is quick and disrupts your daily life in the slightest way possible.
Many installations of laminate flooring can be done in a day. We will advise you on all the options available to help you find the most cost-effective solution that works best with the requirements of your location.

Quality Floor Tile Installation Every Time
Once your tile has been installed to perfection, we finish the install with a two-step grout cleaning process that ensure that there is no grout residue left behind on the installed tile, walls, or baseboards.
Pre-Grout Inspection: Before we grout the tile, we check the sheen of each tile to make sure that it is at it best possible luster. At this stage, we an replace any tile that may need to be switched out.
Checking Grout Installation: Quality installation of the grout is key in the result of a perfect tile floor installation. We confirm that the grout lines are clean and properly filled. We confirm that there is no lippage (uneven tile) that can be a hazard to foot traffic. We top our installation off with a thorough cleaning to remove any residue.
Floor Tile Material Options
Ceramic Tile: Ceramic tile is made from different trace materials and clay. The clay is formed into shapes and then baked in a kiln. Ceramic tile comes in glazed and non-glazed finishes. There are various surface designs, from wood look tile to stone look tile, and various other design choices.
Porcelain Tile: Porcelain tiles are more chip-resistant compared to ceramic tiles. Porcelain tile is baked at a higher temperature than ceramic and is dense. Porcelain tiles are resistant to moisture. The best advantage is that the color is through the tile, so if you chip it, you are less likely to notice it.
