I hope everyone had a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I just wanted to give everyone a quick update about some changes in 2017. We are continuing our commitment to having the very best in customer service and product knowledge, and have brought on a full time sales associate to work the showroom floor. Brad has been in the industry since 1999, working for some of the larger flooring stores in Charlottesville. It is truly an honor to have him a part of the team. Please feel free to stop by and chat with him, regardless if your in the market for new flooring. Have a great winter!
Well, it looks like Spring has finally sprung. With the daffodils blooming and the robins catching the early worm, we will soon be thinking barbecues and friends coming over for get togethers. Spring cleaning is also in full swing, and a lot of customers are talking room "makeovers". Its amazing what a new coat of paint and brand new floors can do for a room. These makeovers are the favorite part of my career, watching a room transform right before your eyes is second to none.
Carpet has been our biggest seller for these makeovers. With flooring manufacturers working round the clock for fresh new products, from "waterproof" carpets to unbelievably soft textures, they have designed some pretty amazing lines of carpet. The front runner of those for us has been the Anso Nylon from Shaw. With its unbeatable lifetime stain resistance warranty, ultra soft feel and high texture retention, its perfect for all lifestyles. As always, we are just a short drive from Charlottesville or a phone call away from answering all your questions about flooring. I hope you have an enjoyable Spring!
The "Other" Wood
Sometimes customers get tied up with looking at only hardwood, and for good reason, one is the return on investment it offers. But with advancements on the Laminate side of your hard surfaces, you will be surprised to find out you actually have other options available, and for well..a little less expensive, but still allowing your return on investment. We even offer Carolina Beach Collection that carries a lifetime warranty, which is equivalent to solid hardwoods. According to North American Laminate Flooring Association, its "realism" they're after, manufacturers are able to simulate everything imaginable on Laminate, from wood to stone, its now possible.
Laminate is also a "Greener" option compared to solid wood. It is made up of wood by products that do not require forest harvesting. All of the Laminate we sell complies to California Air Resources Board, CARB, and none require adhesives, so don't worry about releasing VOCs.
Installation is a swift process, even for the "weekend warrior" due to the quick locking mechanism.
Cleaning is simple, just sweep or Swiffer, and when needed apply some Laminate cleaner, which we offer with every purchase for free, and done!
As you can see, Laminate truly is a great versatile flooring product that shouldn't be overlooked the next time you're considering solid hardwoods. Come on in to the showroom and have a look for yourself, trust me you wont be disappointed.
