Common types of floors used in renovation and construction

Your customers and project budget will be satisfied by your choice of flooring materials as a builder/remodeler. There are some flooring options that are obvious, such as tile for bathrooms. Others are dependent on the style and market preferences as well as the home’s value. The flooring’s price, quality, style, and cost should all be in keeping with the interior decor of the home.

It’s a good idea to speak to local realtors if you are building or preparing homes to sell. If you are renovating a property for a rental investment the flooring should be durable.

Porcelain or ceramic tile

You can’t go wrong with tile flooring. While tile has been the preferred choice for bathrooms for many years, home buyers love tile in their everyday living spaces, such as hallways, entryways and mudrooms.

Tile is the most versatile flooring material in terms of style and color options. You can find everything, from small mosaics to large-format floor tiles to tile with “wood look” that combines the beauty of hardwood and the durability of ceramic.

The most durable flooring options are porcelain and glazed ceramic tiles. They require little maintenance. To prevent staining, grout on floor tiles must be sealed regularly. This is especially important for rentals properties you intend to maintain.

Although tile doesn’t need to be costly, it can be labor-intensive and expensive to install. A tile installer is best for large or complicated tile jobs. Most builders have some experience with tile.

Tile is hard and cold so be cautious when using it in living spaces such as bedrooms, living rooms, family rooms, formal dining rooms and bedrooms. In some markets, however, tile can be used in these areas. Avoid slippery tiles in wet areas such as bathrooms and entryways.

Hardwood and bamboo

Hardwoodis undoubtedly the most beautiful flooring option and a favorite of both home-owners and renters. Hardwood is suitable for any room in the house, including kitchens and dining rooms. Hardwood is not recommended for rooms that are frequently wet or subject to a lot of traffic. Bamboo flooring has similar performance, cost, installation, maintenance, and is comparable to hardwood.


Laminate flooring is an affordable alternative to hardwood. Laminate flooring is made from wood pulp and resin. It can look very similar to real wood but buyers who are savvy can tell the difference. Laminate can be replicated in almost every hardwood style from the traditional favorites maple and cherry to more exotic types such as wide-plank pine or reclaimed barnwood.

Carpet doesn’t need any explanation. Carpet is a popular choice for builders due to its many styles and colors, ease of installation, and great looks when new. Many homeowners prefer carpet for their bedrooms, living rooms, and family rooms because it is warm, soft, quiet, and comfortable. Carpet is quiet, making it an excellent choice for rooms on the upper levels of multi-story homes.

Vinyl and Linoleum

Although vinyl and linoleum may be different, they are both resilient flooring. Both are available in sheets, planks and tiles that can be installed quickly. They are durable and resistant to moisture and available in many colors and styles. Vinyl and Linoleum make great choices for high-traffic and hard-working areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements and dining areas.
