With warm weather, humidity, and heat taking a toll year round, some materials just aren’t right for Clearwater area homes. Replace your existing floor with these stylish, durable options that make sense for the Florida climate and won’t break the bank.
Available in a wide range of patterns and colors, porcelain tile is a chic and long-lasting option for Clearwater homes. You’ll even find porcelain tiles that look like wood, natural stone, and other more expensive materials. The tile feels cool to the touch, which is refreshing after coming in from the heat.
Porcelain tile is extremely low-maintenance; sweep and mop occasionally to keep the tiles clean. The material is non-porous, making it perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, and entryways.
Laminate flooring is resistant to damage from moisture or sun exposure, which makes it a great pick for Florida homes. Laminate flooring comes in stone, wood, marble, and other patterns, but without the hefty price tag of those natural materials. Combine the low maintenance, flexible look, and durability of the material and it’s easy to see why laminate is so popular among Clearwater homeowners.
Use laminate anywhere you need to replace your flooring, including in the bathroom. Choose from laminate tongue-and groove planks, squares, and more.
A popular choice for bathrooms due to its water resistant nature, vinyl works well throughout a Clearwater home. It can withstand humidity, heavy wear and tear, and is one of the most inexpensive flooring options. Find vinyl in natural, traditional, and modern colors and patterns. Vinyl tiles can mimic hardwood planks or stone tiles and also comes in sheets. However, sheet vinyl is trickier to install correctly, since it needs to be cut to fit precisely. Trust a professional at Floor Coverings International Seminole to get this job done for you.
All of these materials are not only low cost, but they are also designed to last and to protect your home from weather-related damage. By choosing a material designed to withstand the Clearwater climate, you will improve your home’s value and update its look to something you enjoy.
