A Guide to Selecting Office Flooring Materials

Whether you are renovating an old office or furnishing and decorating a new one, flooring is one of the most important choices you will make. The type of flooring you choose sets the tone for your office and can make your workplace look classy and elegant or cozy and inviting. There are many different types of flooring materials available and you can trust Precision Flooring Services to help you choose the right one for your office. We have years of experience installing various types of flooring materials and we follow the process through every step to ensure it is completed properly. By using Precision Flooring Services, you are guaranteed to find an office floor that meets your individual needs.

Types of Office Flooring Materials

There are many types of flooring materials to choose from. Although Precision Flooring Services specializes in installing carpet, vinyl, and hardwood, we have plenty of experience installing various types of flooring. Depending upon your office’s needs, you can choose from any of the following types of flooring.

Carpet

Choose from traditional carpet rolls or modern carpet tiles. While carpet rolls can give you a clean, streamlined office design, carpet tiles offer more customization and durability. Whether you choose a roll or carpet tiles, your office will be easier to keep clean. However, the carpet does stain easier than other flooring choices. It is one of the most cost-efficient flooring choices.

Hardwood

If you are going for a timeless look, hardwood could be the perfect flooring choice for your office. You can choose from different colors and patterns to customize your office design. You may have to sweep hardwood often to remove dust that could cause the office to look dirty, but you don’t have to worry about hardwood staining like carpet does. Although it is a durable flooring option, it is usually one of the more expensive choices.

Tile

Tile is a great flooring choice for a modern office. Choose from tiles of various sizes made from natural stone, porcelain, or ceramics to find one that best meets your needs. Tiles are one of the most durable flooring choices and require little upkeep. They are moderately cost-efficient depending upon which tile material you choose.

Vinyl

Available in a vast array of colors and patterns, vinyl or laminate are both great flooring choices that are easy to clean. Laminate is one of the easiest materials to clean when it comes to flooring, and because it is often relatively inexpensive, it is a good choice for office flooring.

The prices of these flooring materials vary widely. In each category, you can select a choice that meets your specific budget. Each category of office flooring materials contains cost-efficient choices that may be slightly less durable than their more expensive counterparts. However, it is important to remember that, generally speaking, the more high-quality a flooring material is, the longer it lasts.

Tips for Choosing the Right Flooring Material

When you are trying to choose the perfect flooring material for your office, there is no simple answer. Each type of material has its own benefits and disadvantages so it is important to choose the one that best meets your needs. Before you begin researching flooring materials, you need to know your budget. If you have a small, strict budget, you probably should not consider expensive flooring choices from the highest-quality materials available, but you probably do not want to go with the most cost-efficient option, either, because you may need to replace the flooring frequently to keep it in good shape. Choosing a middle-of-the-road option allows you to get the most for your money. After you have set your budget, consider how much wear and tear the flooring will endure. If your office will have many visitors or require you to rearrange heavy furniture, the carpet may be a good choice because it is so durable. If your office offers brightly-colored foods or liquids, you may want to select a flooring choice that is easy to clean, such as tile or laminate. Finally, you should consider the overall aesthetic you are trying to create. The traditional rolled carpet may not be the best choice for a modern, elegant office, but hardwood or stone tile could be a great choice. In contrast, if you want your office to be cozy and inviting, tile or hardwood flooring can make the space look cold. Carpet could be a better option. Choose your criteria using these three tips and make your choice based on which option best meets your needs.

Steps We Follow for Flooring Installation

At Precision Flooring Services, we are committed to providing exceptional service to our clients, both residential and commercial. We can work with you to determine the scope of your project and we’ll see it through every step of the way to ensure it gets completed on time. All of our flooring technicians are knowledgeable and experienced so you can trust them to complete each job thoroughly and efficiently. We approach every job with the same method.

First, we meet with you to discuss your flooring needs. We help you decide which type of flooring will be most beneficial based on your office’s budget and needs. We can also show you samples of various flooring options so you have a better idea of what your finished space will look like.

Next, we help you determine which pattern you want. Many flooring materials have different patterns and we can often customize those patterns. For example, if you choose to use carpet tiles with a geometric design, we can lay the tiles out in a way that the pattern stays consistent. For hardwood flooring, we can lay a streamlined pattern with long pieces or piece together smaller portions of the flooring for more creative design.

Finally, we begin the installation process. We appoint a designated project manager to oversee the job and ensure every step is completed properly. Our technicians will prep the flooring area with the proper moisture mitigation to protect your flooring materials and ensure they will last for many years to come. After we lay the flooring, we’ll inspect it carefully to ensure there are no gaps and tears that could affect the quality of the product.
