Flooring is typically the first feature that needs replacing in a home since it is exposed to so much wear and tear on a daily basis. Unfortunately, even if your floors have held up well to age and foot traffic, they may simply be out of style, which can make your entire home look outdated. So, if you are considering remodeling your home, why not start with the flooring and work your way up? With the help of our remodeling contractors at Go Green Painting and Home Improvements, you can choose the type of home flooring that suits your taste and practical needs, and from there work towards creating a more efficient and functional home.

Choosing the right hardwood floor is important, since it will set the tone for the rest of the room and your home. If you consider yourself a traditionalist, you may be attracted to the beauty and quality of hardwood flooring, which comes in a variety of materials like oak, cherry, walnut and ash. There are two main types of wood floors: solid wood flooring, which is cut from single pieces of wood, and engineered flooring, which is created by laminating thin sheets of wood together and topping it off with a hardwood veneer. Solid hardwood floors can be found in parquet flooring, which comes in different patterns, strip flooring, which is nailed to sub flooring, or plank flooring, which has wider boards. Engineered wood floors come in strips and planks and are ideal for below-ground floors, since they hold up well to changes in humidity and moisture.
If you already have hardwood floors but they are in need of refinishing, our floor refinishing contractors can help you achieve the look you want for a competitive price. One of the best things about a wood floor is that it can be refinished many times over its lifetime, restoring and preserving its beauty and durability. Sanding and refinishing your hardwood floors can also be beneficial if the current finish is too dark or too light, if traffic has made your wood floors look worn and scuffed, or if you want to repair deep scratches or cracks in the wood. Wood floors are one of the most attractive options for home flooring, and floor refinishing can help bring your hardwood floors back to life.
Ceramic floor tile is a popular option for high-traffic areas of the home, like the bathroom and kitchen, since it is known for its water resistance and durability. Stone floor tile is another option for home flooring, often chosen for its strength and easy maintenance. While ceramic floor tiles can be customized to your specifications for color, size and shape, granite and other stone floor tiles are less uniform in shape, which makes for a unique and more natural-looking floor. Floor tiles can be sealed to preserve their appearance and prevent staining, and they also come in different finishes, including non-slip, to suit the functionality of the room.
With the introduction of new flooring products in recent years, including more eco-friendly flooring alternatives, homeowners have a variety of options when it comes to floor installation and floor refinishing. At Go Green Painting and Home Improvements, we offer homeowners green home improvement solutions, while practicing our own eco-friendly techniques like recycling scraps and conducting staged cleanings. There are plenty of construction and home improvement companies out there, but so few take into consideration the harmful effects that depletion of natural resources can have on our environment. Here at Go Green, we use only Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood products for our hardwood flooring and molding, which come from forests where environmental and social interests are protected. Our main goal is to offer homeowners quality, green alternatives for all aspects of construction and home improvement, which is why all of our flooring materials, including our wood floor products, are 100% recyclable and biodegradable.
