Why replace a Floor?
Out floors serve many functions. Apart from providing the surface upon which we stand and place our belongings they also connect to the environment aspects of the room (the temperature and humidity) and are a fundamental part of the décor. Older flooring can compromise any or all of these aspects of our homes.
Improve air quality
Modern timber very rarely causes health concerns, but older carpet or moisture problems beneath the floor can be an issue. Replacing the floor, and taking measures against moisture, mould and dust mites can make all the difference to a home.
A softer walking surface can make life easier on our feet, back and other joints. Floating floors are one option, with an underlay that provides some cushioning.
We spend a lot of time in our homes. Life is better is we live in a house that we find pleasing. An upgrade can last for decades.
Wooden floors remain a popular choice. They can look good when colour stained or carpeted. And the options can be changed over time.
