How to Refinish Engineered Hardwood Floors

When shopping for new hardwood floors for your home, one of the big decisions you will make will be whether your new wood floors will be solid or engineered hardwood floors. Each floor has it's pro's and con's:

Solid hardwood is typically used in more upscale homes. The Cons for solid hardwood is that it is more expensive to purchase/install solid versus engineered hardwood floors. Another Con is that solid wood flooring is so much thicker than other types of flooring it might meet up with in a home, such as carpet or tile and it creates a decent height difference between the two floors. The Pro for solid is that it can be refinished several times if needed throughout the lifetime of the floor.

Engineered hardwood floors are used in homes of all price ranges. It's popularity is that it allows you to get hardwood flooring in your home at an affordable price. The downside is that if the floor can be refinished, it typically will be limited to 1 or 2 times depending on the product. So here is some information on refinishing hardwood floors.

1st, always check with the manufacturer to inquire if they recommend refinishing their engineered hardwoods. The engineered hardwoods are unique where each product has a specific wear layer, most being 2mm-3mm thick. You need 1/32 of an inch to refinish a wood floor.

If your engineered hardwood floors is eligible to be refinished, then you would refinish it just as you wood a solid wood floor. I highly recommend that you hire a professional for this project since there is very little room for error, not a typical DIY project. Here is more info on the refinishing process:

Mansfield Carpet Store Guide

Need help in your shopping for new carpet for your home, well we here at The Floor Barn, a Mansfield Carpet Store would like to provide you with a few little tips that can help you choose the right carpets for you and your home.

Choosing the right floor for your home can be difficult. Every floor has it it's pros and cons. The benefits of carpet are that they provide a soft and warm floor to walk on, or for your children to play on. At our Mansfield Carpet Store, the carpets come in many different colors so there is an option for all design tastes, and it is probably the most affordable flooring product. However, with all the positives, a few negatives are that they can get "ugly" easier than other flooring types and do not really offer any resale value to your home like a hardwood floor would.

Once you understand the benefits and downsides of carpet and have decided it is the best floor choice for your needs, consider the following items prior to purchasing the carpet.

Proper Maintenance - Each carpet manufacturer has their own care requirements to keep your new carpet under warranty. Before you buy your carpet, ask your sales person at your Mansfield Carpet Store for the warranty info on the product you like. Most people don't know that almost all warranties are void if their carpet is not professionally cleaned on a regular basis!

Style of Carpet - There are several different styles of carpet like Saxony, Frieze, Plush, Textured, and Berber. Different styles have different benefits and you need to find out which one is best for your home. Some homes have a lot of traffic and the best choice might be a darker textured carpet that can hide tracks and dirt better than other styles. Or maybe your home has little traffic and you wan to go with a more stylish patterned plush carpet that is light in color. Do your research or ask your sales professional at your Mansfield Carpet store to find the right one for you.

Padding - Selecting the right padding is almost as crucial as choosing the right carpet. Different carpets will work best with different pads, for example a low cut berber carpet is best with a thinner /dense carpet than other styles. If you have kids or pets, you likely will want to get a padding with Spillguard protection. Do not skimp on the padding!

These are some of the more important things to consider before buying carpet for your home. But remember, this is just guide, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact our professionals at our North Texas Mansfield Carpet Store.

Small Bathroom Renovation Tips

Do you have a bathroom renovation need in your home, but your bathroom is small and you don't know how to maximize the space? There are several tips for small bathroom renovation projects that a homeowner can implement, but ultimately the renovations you can do will depend on the layout of your bathroom.

Typically a bathroom renovation budget for a small bath is also limited in funds. Which means you will likely need to make your changes without conducting any plumbing changes, however if your budget is more expansive, allowing for plumbing changes will greatly improve your design choices.

Probably the design with the most potential is the European, Wet Bath design. A Wet Bath interior design means that everything can and likely will get get during a shower. Without having the surrounding walls of a shower, you can make the most of small bathroom renovation project.

However, not everyone is ok with the potential of water finding it's way everywhere in the bathroom. For those people that need a divider between the shower space and the rest of the bathroom for visual aesthetics as well as functionality purposes to help from the rest of the area from getting wet, you can implement a shower curtain. A half pony-wall will also help provide the same function and still help maintain that open feel to make the space feel larger than it is. The link attached to this blog post has a few photos of good examples of these two practices.

Not only is the utilization of the right materials an important aspect of your small bathroom renovation project success, but also are the colors. Light, bright and airy colors will help the area feel larger to the eye.

What is a Certified Flooring Installer?

A certified flooring installer is a floor installer who has passed a certification program for a specific flooring product such as hardwood, tile, carpet or laminate floors. However the certification process can vary differently depending on what organization or company is giving the certification test. 

Manufacturer certified flooring installer programs are implemented by some of your more larger flooring manufacturer's, such as Shaw or Mohawk. 

Organization certified flooring installer programs are not affiliated to any flooring manufacturer. They rather are industry promoters such as the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) who are providing educational opportunities to further promote the industry they represent. 

When it comes to the benefit of being a certified flooring installer is that it validates your flooring expertise to potential clients and provides you a way to differentiate your competition. Is certification really beneficial or necessary, I would have to say 95% of the cases it is not. Where it is beneficial to be a certified flooring installer is if it is a new product that has changed the way a previous flooring product was installed. But for the most part, if you are installing a hardwood floor from Johnson and one from Shaw, you are utilizing the same method.

Is it necessary to be a certified flooring installer to be successful? The answer is a resounding no. Yes, the certifications can be nice on a resume and assist you in learning new products, however most products do not require a certification to install. Most of the tests are written as well as hands on, so sometimes a written test can be a little intimidating if only offered in English to a installer workforce that has a large contingency of English as a second language. As a consumer, it is more important that you purchase the product from a reputable retailer who employs skilled installers, not necessarily certified.

Typical Bathroom Remodel Cost in Texas?

A bathroom remodel cost is very hard to nail down to a specific number because there are so many variables that go into a project. For example, where the home is located, a higher cost of living city versus a more affordable suburb. What type of materials, the scope of the remodeling project, and much more can affect the bathroom remodel cost in Texas.

However, to give you some sort of insight of what the average bathroom remodel cost is in Texas, let us give you insight from our projects here in the Dallas and Fort Worth metroplex. We have showrooms in Burleson and Arlington, TX and most of our bathroom remodel projects revolve around a shower. Most likely the client had water damage or they just bought the home and want to update it. For your typical master shower remodel here in our area can range between $2500-$5000 depending on the materials utilized in the project. A tub surround remodel can cost between $750-$1500.

The most often addition to a bathroom remodel is new floor tile. Obviously the size of the bathroom can affect the bathroom remodel cost. Typical floor tiling project for a master bath can range between $500-$1500.

Then of course you can get into replacing your vanity cabinets and countertops, and that expense can vary greatly depending on the quality of the cabinets and whether you go with a product like cultured marble or granite / quartz for the counters.

As previously mentioned, there are so many variables that go into a bathroom remodel cost, but hopefully this blog post will give a good starting point of what to expect from your local remodeler in Texas.

Bathroom Remodeling Mansfield Project Safety Tips

As a bathroom remodeling Mansfield contractor, safety on site is huge priority for us. A home renovation project can have a wide array of scope, from something small such as a backsplash tile to larger size like a home addition. However, no matter the size of the project, there is always the opportunity for injury, whether it could be the contactor or the homeowner and his/her family and pets. Here are some tips to help protect you and family members during your next project:

Background Check - the first thing you should do is hire a reputable bathroom remodeling Mansfield contractor. Make sure they are insured, visit with references, and make sure they are licensed if your state has a licensing policy (Texas does not).

Security or Locks - You might look into getting a smart lock that allows you to monitor the comings and goings of workers in your home via your smart phone. It also allows you to change the codes once the project is over so that contractor does not have the access code to your home.

Keep Kids and Pets away from the project area, including outside where there might be power tools. We do a lot of flooring projects in addition to being a bathroom remodeling Mansfield company. So we typically will have a saw plugged in constantly just outside a door so that we can cut wood or laminate and if a kid had access to it, it could be ugly.

Consider boarding your pet depending on the duration of the project. There likely will be lots of noise and lots of strangers that could agitate your pet if they are used to a quiet home. So if the project is a few days, look at the possibility of boarding them or visiting a family/friend.

Here some good additional tips:

We had The Floor Barn remove all the 10 year old carpet from our home and replace it with laminate. The staff was most helpful in making the correct selection for our home. The work was done in a professional and timely manner with minimal disruption to our daily lives. Best of all, it was done at a price that was very affordable. Everyone is so helpful in every aspect of the work being done. The people at The Floor Barn really care about their customers.

The Floor Barn did an excellent job converting our garden tub into a huge shower. We had an existing shower in our master bath that was just too small and hard to get in and out of the shower door. I did the demo work and they came in and installed the schluter Kerdi system for waterproofing where the tub was. We are going to remove the existing shower at a later date and turn it into a linen closet or something like it. We chose the tile from their store and the prices were very reasonable. They were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and the craftsmanship is excellent. I have no problem recommending them to anyone and we plan to use them again for our other bath when the time comes. Feel free to contact me if you would like to see their work.

We are very happy with our new bathroom! The Floor Barn did a great job, they were punctual, cordial and very knowledgeable. All our concerns were addressed in a timely manner. They left the place clean at the end of each day. We loved the fact that it was done right- James and Don took the time to ensure that the results are amazing! We look forward to working with these guys in the future when it's time to update our kitchen!

We needed to convert our tub/shower to a walk in type shower for our safety. The rebath fiberglass type did not meet our desire so we started looking for someone to do the conversion. We found pictures of similar shower arrangements and printed them out for showing what we wanted. After much looking and talking we found the Floor barn and decided they would be the one for the job. No double talk or pressure and after meeting with some of the family we knew this was the place. It has been several months now since the conversion and we have had no complaints or call back. Needless to say we are very pleased with their work and everyone who has seen it has only good words about it. If you want the job done right these are the right ones fot the job

We love our new Shaw laminate floors installed by Brian and his installation crew. We were very pleased with our whole experience.
I frequent Taste of Asia. Their food is good (not great) and the service is excellent. The place is clean and you know that you will get your money's worth.
