Details On “Floors Vs. Floor Coverings”

Jordan: I’m here with Cheryl from Superior Floor and Cabinet Designs. Cheryl you also on Berger Hardware, which we’re going to talk about a little bit later in the show I’m excited to get to that.

Cheryl: Yes.

Jordan: But right now it’s all about flooring, versus floor covering. And how to know the difference, and which ones right for our viewers. So why don’t you kind of just explain what each one of those are for me?

Cheryl: Okay, when you think about flooring it’s more of an investment in your home, a permanent addition to not only your home but to your home’s value.

Jordan: Okay.

Cheryl: Floor covering is more like redecorating, It’s more of a temporary change. And it does at the comfort and enjoyment of your home but not necessarily increasing the value of your home.

Jordan: So what are some floor options that fall into each of those categories So kind of paint a picture?

Cheryl: So floor covering, would be porcelain tile, hardwood floors, like here on our set, things like that are permanent and increase the value of the home. Versus things that are more easily changed. Such as carpeting, vinyl, laminate floors, things like that. One thing that I think kind of bridges the gap and maybe, is both, would be, high quality wool carpet, because a good quality wool carpeting will last 25 years.

Jordan: And will add really will add value to your home.

Cheryl: Add value to your home.

Jordan: So that’s kind of the key differentiator we’re talking about the longer term so maybe flooring has a overall longer lifespan?
