hardwood flooring AlbuquerqueMaybe you just purchased a new home in the Albuquerque area. Or, maybe you’re looking to update a home you’ve lived in for years.  Whatever the case, it may be important to find the right timing when it comes to new flooring in the home. Here are some tips on the best time to update your floors from the experts at Floor Coverings International Albuquerque.

When you first move in

Before you move in all our furniture and belongings. If there is old carpet in the home, tear it out.  If the hardwoods need to be refinished, best to do it now.  If you need new tile, stone, or hardwoods installed, get to work figuring out what flooring you’d like.  The experts at the Floor Coverings International can help you with all your new flooring needs to ensure your new home is your dream home from the ground up.

When You’re Looking to Rent Out Your Home

Renting out a home is a great way to bring in some extra income.  However, you want to protect your home while it’s rented out. To attract renters consider hardwood floors over carpeting. Carpet can collect allergens over the years.  Laminate flooring will give a stylish look for your home, but if you want to replace it after your renters are gone, you can save on materials.

When Your Flooring is Old or Damaged 

When your flooring needs attention often it’s obvious. Cracked tile, old grout, carpet with wear patterns, warped or damaged hardwoods. Even when flooring is cared for meticulously, after a while it’s just time to bring in new flooring to your home. Then it’s time to decide if you replace the flooring with a similar material and style or if it’s time to update things and a new fresh look.
