Tips for Purchasing New Flooring

Purchasing your new floor can be an overwhelming process. It is said to be the third largest purchase the average consumer makes, behind houses and cars, and the average consumer buys a new floor about every 7-10 years. That’s a long time to live with a floor you don’t like. For that reason, we want to help you to make an informed, well-thought out decision, before you buy.

Over the last few years, we’ve written a few guides that aid consumers looking to purchase a new floor. After reading these guides (or the ones relevant to your upcoming purchase), we feel that you will be able to make a better decision about your next purchase.

Please let us know if we’re missing anything, or if you need any additional information.

Thanks,

New Addition: Bruce Springdale Plank

At Carpet Express, we try to bring our customers the best values in the flooring industry. Bruce Springdale Plank by Armstrong is one of the best engineered wood flooring products on the market today. Its 3-ply construction is 100% oak, where most engineered wood uses a cheaper wood as a filler, and only has oak as the bottom ply and the top veneer.

We wanted to bring this product to the market at a price that would compete with Chinese imports and lesser American made products.

And then it hit us. Bring in truckloads. Buy it in bulk, and sell it cheap.

Call us today to find out what we’re selling this hot product for – (800) 922-5582.

Cost Comparison: Cabin Grade vs. First Quality Wood Flooring

Cabin grade wood is a huge market in Dalton, Georgia and throughout the country. Many customers shop long and hard for cabin grade wood without ever considering first quality, fully warranted, American grown and milled hardwood. Bruce’s Dundee Strip and Plank is an example of a first quality, 25 year finish and structural warranted hardwood floor that can usually be purchased for less than 10% more than the tavern grade Dundee (Timberland) or a Chinese import.

If you like a rustic look with color variations, knot holes, and heavy mineral streaks, then the tavern or cabin grade may be right for you. Just be open minded to a first quality, fully warranted floor without missing tongues and more uniform color. In many cases, the cost is about the same.

New Addition: Handscraped Hickory Road

Above, On, or Below Grade Installation

We just introduced a new line of handscraped hardwood flooring to our website called “Hickory Road.”

Hickory Road has some of the best looking colors you will ever see in a hand-scraped wood floor. The style takes you back to the times of riverboats and petty-coat dresses. The traditional look and feel is represented in each and every plank, and gives any room a time-honored characteristic look, displaying the unique grain and texture of Hickory.

This wood is a 3/8″ engineered product, with a thick top veneer, giving it structural stability. It can be used above, on, or below grade, and can be glued, nailed, stapled, or floated. It carries a 25 year residential finish warranty, and a lifetime structure warranty. All planks are 5″ wide, and come in random lengths, between 18-48″ each.

We invite you to take a look at Hickory Road, and let us know what you think of it.

TV Commercials

but-wait-theres-moreHeeeeerrrrre’ssssss Mike! – Besides a 35 year career in all phases of the floor covering industry, Mike is also an accomplished writer, producer, and actor. The TV commercials on the following page were filmed by Charter Communications, and aired over the last 6 years. A few of the commercials were controversial, most were humerous, but all were intended to promote the excellent prices, products, and service at Carpet Express. In no way did Mike or Carpet Express intend to offend anyone in producing these 30 second ads. I hope you will enjoy the show.
