FLOORING PROJECT GUIDE
Choosing the right flooring is an integral part of your building or remodel project. It can be difficult to find flooring that meets your needs and style. Coldwater Lumber is here to help you find the flooring that perfectly fits your requirements.
New flooring PERIOD will increase the value of your home! We recommend luxury vinyl plank vs tile (LVT), hardwood or ceramic tile, but LVT will give you the biggest bang for you buck.
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is the most popular waterproof flooring. Other waterproof flooring includes Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and tile.
It’s important to know that true hardwood floor needs to have the humidity in the home at a certain level. If not, you run the risk of swelling or shrinking. Engineered hardwood does not have this concern.
Engineered hardwood is layers of wood, better known as plywood. It is finished exactly the same as true hardwood but comes with a cheaper price tag.
While vinyl is composed of sheets of plastic (acrylic, PVC, and other synthetic polymers) pressed together, laminate is made up of multiple layers that include a particleboard center, a high-resolution image, and a clear, protective top sheet.
Installation all depends on the flooring you choose. Typically, flooring has a click and lock installation feature, so the average homeowner can install on their own.
