Buying Tips for Resilient Flooring
Why Buy Resilient Flooring?
Resilient flooring is an amazing material if you’re looking for something that is both a great value and long lasting. It is softer under foot than ceramic tile and wood, which makes it a great choice in kitchens where you’ll spend a lot of time standing. Its ability to hold up under the harshest of conditions is why it is used frequently in commercial settings.
Resilient flooring is a great solution for residential applications as well. Breakthroughs in digital printing allow manufacturers to create the look of expensive stone, wood and ceramic floors with stunning realism at a fraction of the cost of the real material.
Another huge benefit of using resilient flooring is the easy maintenance. It is highly water and stain resistant. You will only have to sweep up dirt and debris periodically. If you need a deeper clean, you only need to use a damp mop. Follow all manufacture cleaning instructions.
Types of Resilient Flooring
There are different materials available depending on the setting you will be using the flooring in. For example, if you are looking to floor a residential area like your home kitchen you will likely choose one of the following materials:
- Residential sheet vinyl
- Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)
- Vinyl Tile
If you are in need of flooring for a commercial setting you will have some different options. Your material options for a project like that will include:
- Commercial Sheet Vinyl
- Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT)
- Bio-Based Tile (BBT)
- Rubber Sheet
- Rubber Tile
We sell only the best brands of resilient flooring available. Call or stop in today to see our selection of resilient flooring.
Buying Tips for Cork Flooring
Why Buy Cork Flooring?
Cork is a progressive design option that offers high-end durability. Cork is a highly resilient flooring because it has elasticity and gives on impact. This makes cork a great option for comfort and sturdiness.
Cork is also known for its abundant design options. The versatile material allows for stains in many shades and it can also be painted. You can have the benefits of cork and still match any décor you choose.
Cork Flooring is Good for the Environment
If you are looking for an environmentally friendly option, cork is the perfect choice. This is because cork can be harvested from a tree without damaging the tree or stunting its growth. This makes cork the most naturally renewable resource for flooring.
What Type of Cork is Best?
It really all depends on your needs. Use plank-shaped cork if you are installing over existing flooring, but use tile-shaped if you need to glue it down. We can help you determine which is best.
Cork texture will greatly impact the look of your cork flooring. Small granules give your floor that traditional cork flooring look you are likely used to. A peeled cork texture gives it a beautiful natural cork look. There are many other textures and designs to choose from. Contact us today and we'll make sure you get the right one for your home's needs..
Buying Tips for Bamboo Flooring
Why Buy Bamboo Flooring?
Bamboo flooring is one of the best ways to get a combination of beauty and durability. It is most known for its strength and stability, making it a great choice for flooring that lasts for many years. Although bamboo is actually a type of grass, it can be harder than oak, giving you a long lasting material.
Bamboo vs. Hardwood
It has a lot of the same benefits of hardwood plus a few more. It has less risk of damage due to expansion or contraction. It is also particularly resistant to insects and mildew growth. Bamboo is one the most recent materials to be used as flooring, but it is also one of the most environmentally friendly. It is a rapidly renewable resource that can be harvested every 5-7 years. An oak tree takes 60 years or more before it’s ready to be re-harvested. This makes bamboo a great choice for environmentally conscious consumers who are concerned about sustainability.
What Type of Bamboo to Buy?
There are a few color options to choose from to get the look you want. You can do a natural bamboo color are get a direct print bamboo to create bamboo flooring that looks like an entirely different type of floor.
There are different grain types for different looks. Vertical grain gives you a uniform, smooth look while horizontal grain helps display the bamboo's random growth rings. The hardest of the grain types is strand-woven which also gives a random look revealing the natural character of your bamboo floors. Contact us today, so we can help you make the right decision when purchasing your new flooring.

Buying Tips for Laminate Flooring
Why has this new product category been such a hit?
Laminate products feature a newer type of wear surface that resists scratching, denting, and burns better than many existing products. Most manufacturers offer extended warranties to back up these claims for superior performance.
Versatility of style is the most common reason to choose laminate. Laminate flooring comes in designs and styles that immitate the look of hardwood as well as tile or stone. This allows for the look of real wood or tile without the care or more time-consuming installation those products demand.
Laminate floors are more scratch resistant than most true hardwoods and easier to clean than grouted tile.
Laminates are typically not glued to the subfloor, but are adhesed or snapped together over a padding. This feature has made laminate flooring popular in areas where vinyl flooring traditionally was installed.
Because of the versatility of installing separate tiles or planks, a custom design is easy to achieve when mixing and matching different sizes and colors.
Many of the laminate products are suitable for wet areas but because the core is made of wood fiber look for products that have warranties covering water damage.
Buying Tips for Vinyl Flooring
Inlaid sheet flooring vs. printed cushion vinyl
Inlaid products will resist the rips, tears and burns far better than printed cushion vinyl products. New innovations like ToughGuard backing from Armstrong help cushion vinyl floors resist tearing.
Residential inlaid products are generally 6 ft. wide and will require seams while most printed cushion vinyl products are available 12 ft wide and can offer seamless installation. However, most residential inlaid product patterns are designed so the seam falls in a grout line and therefore not obvious to the eye.
In recent years, backing materials have been affected by back staining. Ask for newer backings like Armstrong’s ToughGuard, which are designed to resist back staining.
Most residential sheet flooring offer no-wax performance and a wide variety of colors and patterns–more than any other flooring product. Printed on products will offer the widest assortment. Some commercial rated inlaid products require waxing.
Generally speaking, cushion flooring is the most economical of all flooring choices.
Some products are designed to help you reduce subfloor preparation costs
Next to ceramic tile, vinyl flooring installation demands properly prepared subflooring. Many of the printed cushion vinyl products are very thin. When they are installed with a full spread of adhesive over a poorly prepared subfloor, irregularities can telegraph through. Products designed for perimeter installation will greatly reduce the effects of subfloor irregularities while lowering subfloor preparation costs. In fact, many of these products can be installed over your existing flooring.
Special Considerations when choosing sheet vinyl flooring
Asphalt staining or dragging heavy objects across the floor can result lt in permanent damage to vinyl surfaces.

Buying Tips for Hardwood Flooring
Factory Finish vs. Custom Sand & Finish on Site
You should feel comfortable with either choice. Factory finished floors are inspected at the mill so any defects are corrected immediately and you receive first choice each time. Factory finished flooring is also installed more quickly without the dust and odors involved with on-site finishing. On-site finishing is dependant on the workmanship of your installer but does allow for closer color match with exisiting woodwork or cabinets.
Both factory finishes and on-site finishes are available in either high gloss or matte. Both types have exciting new finishes that, due to new technologies, require no waxing.
Engineered products install where no solid hardwood dares to go
Prior to the development of engineered hardwood flooring, hardwood products could not be installed on slab or in your basement without a special subfloor system. Now you can enjoy real hardwood flooring in those areas without all that fuss and expense. A special cross-ply construction eliminates the problem of expansion and contraction usually associated with solid hardwood.
Don’t become overly concerned with thinner or thicker top wood layers associated with engineered products because it’s the finish you are walking on. Generally speaking you won’t need to re-sand and finish these products; just re-coat them unless you need to change the color.
Special considerations when selecting hardwood flooring
Direct sunlight can affect the color of hardwood stains, therefore closing curtains or shades during peak periods will reduce damage. Area rugs left in place for extended periods of time may expose a shading difference once they are removed from the remainder of the floor.
Large pets with sharp toenails can also damage even the best finishes.
Ceramic & Porcelain
Ceramic Tile vs Porcelain Tile
Not All Tile is Ceramic!
Tile products are available in a huge selection of colors, sizes and styles. Most people use the term “ceramic” when speaking of tile but not all tile is truly ceramic. Ceramic is made primarily of clay mixed with water and other minerals while porcelain tile has sand as its primary ingredient.
Ceramic tile undergoes a heating process to form the solid material. This porous material is then glazed which gives it the final design and color. Porcelain tile undergoes much higher temperatures and pressure applications to form it’s solid surface. It is denser and more durable and can be manufactured with or without a glaze.
The quality of raw materials, the firing process, and the sophistication of glazing applications that create realism will determine the quality of the finished product. These quality differences are often reflected in the price.
Selecting the right surface glaze is an important step when selecting floor tile
Floor tiles are rated for glaze wear and slip resistance, which are important factors to consider. Glaze ratings should exceed 3 for residential applications with the exception of bath areas that can use tiles rated 2. Tiles with a slip resistant rating of 0.5 or better should work well in most indoor residential applications.
Use caution when selecting tile for installations outdoors. Unglazed quarry tiles, tiles with heavily textured surfaces, or porcelain paver tiles, all with slip resistant ratings of 0.6 or greater are possibilities. They must also be frost resistant.
Luxury vinyl tiles are quickly gaining in popularity. Vinyl tiles offer the look of “real tile” but are much easier to install and often have a lower price point. Vinyl tiles are not as cold to the touch as ceramic or porcelain and are softer underfoot. These tiles can be grouted or layed without grout. Care of this product is the same as with any other tile.
Carpets & Rugs
Buying Tips for Carpet
The performance of most carpet will be determined by the performance of the cushion. Carpet cushion affects the feel, quietness, resiliance, cleaning, insulation and ultimately the life of the carpet. Upgraded padding will add years of life to your carpet and often will double the manufacturer’s warranty.
Crushing or flattening of your carpet fiber causes it to look ugly long before it’s useful wear life is over. Quality cushion will help resist this condition.
Determine Your Needs
Thick and luxurious carpet can fool you at times. Determine the performance you want and the conditions effecting your carpet. A tighter twisted fiber doesn’t feel as soft but it will generally give you better performance over the life of the carpet. A tightly twisted yarn will resist soiling, matting and crushing. When a yarn is not tightly twisted it may feel more luxurious but it will tend to crush and flatten out more quickly.
Our knowledgeable sales staff can discuss with you how your room will be used and recommend the correct carpets for your individual needs.
Read the Labels
Generally speaking you can review the stain resistance, anti-static claims and wear warranties right on the back of the sample. You also will see the type of fiber ( nylon, polyester, polypropylene, etc.), the face weight, density, and twist.
With hundreds of colors and styles to choose from, Bareville Flooring and Tile is sure to have the right carpet to meet your needs within your budget.
