Welcome to the Flooring Butler blog! Here you will find me rambling on and on about Flooring whether it is hardwood floor, refinishing, luxury, vinyl plank, tile, carpet, showers, backsplash, fireplaces, commercial flooring, epoxy floors, and much much more.
I love to talk about flooring, especially hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring is very intricate and detailed. From the prep work down to the actual sanding the process of applying the stain and finish coats is very interesting to me. If you want to learn more about that you can find articles, talking about the process, what to expect, the timeline, the hazards, and the benefits of hardwood floor refinishing
Here you can also hear me talk about carpets, the benefits of carpet, some projects where we have installed carpet, and some warnings of how to avoid poor carpet installation. A summary of the benefits of Carpet would include carpet. You can install over an uneven surface . So if your subfloor has cracks from foundation movement, is unlevel, is not flat, you can install carpet, and it will accommodate those imperfections of the subfloor. Carpet is also nice for warmth and comfort.
Tile is also fun to talk about- especially with showers. There is a lot of details when installing a shower well so that it is 100% waterproof. If you want to read more about how to waterproof a shower, read more in our blog!
Luxury vinyl plank is the hot item these days, but is not a perfect product and many floor, inspectors and flooring stores that I know fear the day when luxury vinyl plank begins to fail. You can read more about this in our blog, but a quick summary is luxury vinyl plank is imperfect, because it is not physically connected to the substrate, it is put upon.hardwood, tile, and carpet are fixed to the subfloor and can be sanded or leveled by putting more or less mortar to accommodate any insulation in the floor especially when a home settles.
