Best Time To Buy Flooring

Typically, most flooring types will go on sale just after the busy holiday season. There are a few other great times to make this purchase, as well. If you are searching for “best time to buy flooring,” this post is for you!

When Is The Best Time To Buy Flooring?

There is no clearly defined best time of the year to purchase your new flooring, but there are a few key factors that can make your timing the best possible. For instance, wait until most floorings go on sale, if possible. Traditionally, two parts of the year will produce the lowest flooring costs. Just after the holidays (late December-January), flooring costs will drop.

Now, most people tend to be far too busy during the holiday season to take care of any sort of flooring purchases and/or installations. This time of the year also happens to be the same time when most flooring providers are moving in new inventory for the spring and summers. These are popular times of the year to begin remodeling projects.

Late May is another time of year when flooring typically goes on sale. This is a great time of year to purchase some flooring that may not be as popular or desired heading into the hot summer season. Just like the holidays, many providers will bank on people being busy with memorial day trips and obligations.

We suggest you try to avoid purchasing flooring in the fall. Typically, this is the time of year when kids are back in school and the home life has really settled down. See if you can hold off on any flooring investments until the holiday season approaches.

Best Time For Installation

The experts say most installation projects are best left for the cooler seasons. You want your flooring to get acclimated to surrounding temperatures, especially in a place as hot as Arizona. This can also be installed later in the year for the safety of all installation workers. Purchasing and installing new flooring in the month of January can be the best case scenario for homeowners.

Best Flooring For Your Home

Here are some of the most popular flooring types, installed by Urban Customs in Phoenix, AZ:

Ceramic Tile

When you need flooring that needs to be waterproof, then ceramic tile is going to be best. Ceramic tile can be used as countertops, floor tiles and anywhere indoors. There are some types of ceramic tiles that have a high gloss that will eventually scratch. Ceramic tiles that are unglazed will be the best for outdoor flooring because of standing water. Some of the most popular finishes that are available will be textured for anti-slip properties, glazed, embossed and matte. Ceramic tiles that are made from porcelain will be colored throughout the tile and will hide any damage or scratches easily. One of the biggest drawbacks is that the grout is hard to clean and any low-quality tiles chip.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is a favorite for a lot of people. Hardwood allows there to be durability and beauty that is hardly found in flooring materials. Hardwood will often come in Hickory, Walnut, Birch, Pine, Oak, Cherry, Beech, Pecan, Maple and many other types. This flooring type will provide a long-lasting flooring that is wear resistant that may be refinished if needed. But, there are some hardwood types that can darken with age and others may expand or shrink which will cause gaps in the flooring.

Marble Flooring

Marble tiling will be a very versatile and durable flooring type. They can be used on flooring, hallway columns, and walls. The tiles are easy to clean and maintain. They can also be easy to engrave with designs and textures to fit your style. Marble tile is great in a foyer and will come in a lot of colors. Marble also has many variations and is often used for sculptures and as a building material, but it is mainly used for flooring. Tiles can come in many sizes, and stone flooring installation is easy.

Bamboo Flooring

One of most recent flooring types is going to be bamboo flooring, which may be a green solution whenever it is compared to other traditional materials for flooring. Bamboo is elegant, durable and has many colors which range from a light tan to a honey brown. It has a clean, strong surface but it may darken over time or when it is exposed to a lot of sunlight. Bamboo should not be allowed to sit with water on it. You can get manufactured bamboo flooring which is often made in planks that will have horizontal or vertical grain. In a vertical bamboo flooring, the pieces will be stood vertically on a narrow edge and then will be pressed side to side.
