3 Signs It Might Be Time to Upgrade Your Flooring

You may find yourself hiding those embarrassing floors with an area rug or you may find yourself procrastinating the change. So what are some of the signs to know when it's time for an upgrade? In this blog, we’ll let you know three things to look for, depending on the type of flooring you have, and the secure options our professionals will provide to fix it for you. There are many high-traffic areas in your home with flooring such as mudrooms, hallways, stairs and front entrances that will always show wear and tear, it just comes with using the area often enough. So prepare for the inevitable with these tips on upgrading your flooring!


Peeling/Rising Vinyl

If you have vinyl or thin laminate, you may notice gaps between sheets or that peeling may begin to occur. This could be caused by water damage or contraction and expansion, otherwise known as buckling due to changes in temperature. The flooring could also be very uneven, causing the vinyl to rise. Although sometimes unavoidable, our experts can install vinyl just like new. Avoid the hassle of having to cut vinyl yourself, possibly ruining a pattern dependant on specific measurements, and have our experts handle the entire process for you.


Chipped/Cracked Tile

Dropping heavy items on tile can cause the tile to crack or chip away as time passes. The concrete underneath the flooring that has not settled will also cause cracks. You may even notice you have missing grout throughout. This means it is time for an upgrade for your flooring, especially if your floors were installed incorrectly. Tile in the bathroom is also common for cracking as water seeps below the grout over time, causing damage. Get your flooring back in shape with our floor repairs or choose from our wide selection of unique new tiles that make remodeling fun.


Stained/Torn Carpet

With pets and children, messes are bound to happen. Ripped carpet or untreated stains can leave permanent marks that are unpleasant to the eye. Carpet is also very prone to foul smells and can leave lingering odors for years to come. Not all carpet stain cleaners do the job, especially when there is significant water damage that ruins the carpet’s texture. Don’t let your carpet become unmanageable and instead opt for a new carpet that is soft and easy to install. We also offer ongoing maintenance incase you don’t have the time to care for it yourself.
