Top three benefits of hard surface flooring 

Carpets reign as a cost-effective floor choice but when it comes to keeping a floor looking like new, hard surface floors such as wood or tile win hands down. In fact, if you have a busy home with lots of foot traffic, you might find that a hardwood floor is more cost-effective in the long run than a carpet that needs to be replaced fairly often. Why are more and more homeowners turning to hard surface floors?

Easy to clean: Hard surface floors such as hardwood, ceramic tile, porcelain tile or luxury vinyl don’t hold onto stains or spills, mud or water, dirt or debris. There’s a lot to like when it comes to an easy cleaning floor.

You can have the beautiful look of wood flooring in your kitchen!

Beautiful range of choices: Have a specific look in mind? You won’t be disappointed by the range of choices with hard surface floors. If you want a warm wood floor you can look at natural hardwood, wood-like porcelain or even waterproof luxury vinyl tile – all of them give the look you want but with slightly different characteristics and prices. Looking to bring nature indoors? Look at natural stone tiles or porcelain tiles that mimic a wide range of more expensive natural materials. The options are really endless when it comes to hard surface flooring.

Better for your health: If you have allergies or asthma, carpet can literally be bad for your health.
