The installers with Mertel Carpets know how to install all types of hardwood floors to the best advantage in your home

Hardwood flooring comes in three basic types. First there is solid wood flooring that is unfinished and installed permanently as interlocking planks, using nails. It is then sanded, stained and finished on site. This type of wood floor can be refinished as it wears over the years. It is used in new homes and major remodel projects. It is the thickest wood floor. The second type of wood flooring is engineered wood flooring. It has a veneer of real wood on a core of plywood or composite material and is designed to lock together. This floor comes pre stained and finished, and is good for use in existing homes. The third type of wood flooring is laminate wood flooring. This product is made to be a floating floor and uses no nails. It is a photographic wood layer protected by a durable finish layer and laminated to a wood composite layer. It is designed to lock together to form a floating floor that is long lasting, but can be removed if necessary.

Hardwood floors are beautiful in most rooms, but can be damaged by water. If a room has the possibility of water leaks of spills, another flooring option may be better. Bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens may do better with water proof flooring, but many kitchens do have success with wood flooring. Hardwood floor in Marin County and hardwood floors in San Rafael look beautiful and last for many years when installed by Mertel Carpets, Inc.

 

Laminate Flooring May Be The Flooring You Need
One of the best low cost flooring alternatives is laminate flooring. Laminate floors can look like wood, ceramic or stone at a fraction of the cost. The most commonly used laminate look is wood. Laminate flooring is made in layers that are laminated together. First there is a very durable aluminum oxide wear layer covering a realistic photo layer. The core of laminate floor is made of high density fiberboard. There can be a thin layer of dense foam cushion attached to the back of each laminate plank. The layers are laminated together with adhesive and heat with realistic texture added to the surface. The planks are manufactured in a click together system, so the floor can be installed without nails or glue in a floating floor.

For California residents the best laminate flooring supplier is Mertel Carpets Inc. in Marin County. Mertel Carpets is a locally owned and operated company with 50 years business experience. They sell carpet, area rugs, hardwood floors, laminate floors, vinyl and cork floors. Mertel Carpets carries the best quality of each flooring type.

Laminates in Marin County are the right look for the area, at the right price. Laminates save the homeowner money with easy installation and competitive pricing.

Why use laminate floors instead of real wood? Some home owners cannot afford real wood flooring, but love the look. Laminate floor planks are a way to get the look and warmth of wood at a fraction of the cost. Many existing homes are not set up for the addition of solid wood flooring and the thickness of its planks. Areas that may have issues with wear or water can use wood laminate floors successfully. Laminate floors will go over any flat, hard substrate without expensive removal of old flooring. Laminate floors go down much more quickly in time sensitive situations. For many, laminate is the best way to go for home flooring.
Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl floors may be the perfect addition to your home. Mertel Carpets offers Vinyl Flooring in Marin County and has a wide selection of vinyl floors, including some that look like expensive ceramic. Whether you are considering vinyl for the lower cost, or because you simply prefer it, you are sure to find the perfect selection of Vinyl Floors in San Rafael at Mertel Carpets.

For Comfort, Convenience and Safety
Vinyl flooring is warm under your feet where other options are cold. Even in the dead of winter, you won’t have to wear slippers all the time, because vinyl is a warmer option. In addition to being warmer than other choices, it can also make the cold floors in basements and on slabs significantly warmer.

There are no grout lines to scrub, making the maintenance easier. Having the vinyl installed professionally will help you ensure that all seams line up perfectly, eliminating any unsightly gaps. The seams can also be sealed to prevent any dirt from entering them.

They don’t get slippery when wet, unlike many other flooring options. Marble, ceramic, and other tile options are notorious for getting slick if they get wet. Even when wet, however, vinyl retains a high level of grip for stability. And if you drop something on the floor, you won’t be left calling someone to come replace an individual tile. Vinyl floors hold up beautifully to abuse, active families and even pets.

Installation
Vinyl can go where tile and wood cannot. Basements that may have higher humidity levels are great candidates for vinyl. Concrete slabs that would require a grid system for wood flooring can take vinyl. Finally, floors that are unlevel, or simply have dips and small rises in them can not be set with tile. Luckily, vinyl can be used to make these floors more attractive to customers.

Mertel Carpets in Marin County knows how to properly install the flooring. It begins with filling any little holes in the floor, and sanding out any spots that are too high and too rough. This sanding and filling process can be time consuming by itself. Next, a high quality glue must be laid on the floor. Mertel Carpets in San Rafael is the perfect choice for handling your flooring installation. Our team are highly experienced and more than happy to show and explain anything you may need help with. Finally, the floor can be laid. It must be pushed down and smoothed completely flat. Making errors during this stage can result in items being left under the floor where they will cause a bump, or the vinyl can become damaged. Choose Marin's vinyl floors experts for your vinyl installation needs. We're just a phone call away.

Choosing the proper installer is vital to your project. Someone who is inexperienced, or rushes through the process, can damage the floor. Choosing the right flooring contractor in Marin County will ensure that you are left with a floor that has neatly done seams, and that the entire floor is properly secured. You will be able to then enjoy all the benefits of a vinyl floor, without having to navigate your way through the installation process.
