How to begin your flooring search

The flooring specialists at Catalfamo Flooring of Ft. Lauderdale can assist you with your new floors.

Our flooring company has a wide variety of familiar brands, but our specialty is exotic items. So before visiting our showroom in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, consider these questions.

Will you invest in natural materials, or is less costly manufactured flooring preferable?

Solid hardwood, natural stone, and clay-based porcelain are the most durable flooring materials on the market. However, with its plywood base and hardwood surface, an engineered wood floor is entirely acceptable and looks the same as a solid wood floor.

Opt for textured luxury vinyl new floors for a realistic wood, stone, or ceramic look, or choose budget-friendly laminate flooring.

Do you prefer luxury vinyl or laminate if you desire a manufactured material?

Luxury vinyl is a versatile and waterproof material installed from the basement to the attic. Waterproof laminate brands effectively repel water for about one day, while luxury vinyl tolerates standing water.

In addition, laminate flooring, always warm underfoot, is designed for floating floor construction, while luxury vinyl floors can 'float' or be glued down.

Are you part of a very active household, or do you have a pet?

Flooring manufacturers offer highly stain-resistant new floors that are backed with a pet-friendly warranty, and these brands are terrific for high-traffic areas, too.

Pet-proof luxury vinyl is an excellent choice because it has a thick, wear-resistant surface layer to protect the image. In addition, floor coverings that are designed with pets in mind are durable and easy to clean.
