The floors of a home are quite literally a part of the foundation. Selecting which type of floor to have installed is an important decision for homeowners. Hardwood floor information, new carpet prices and carpet installation estimates are topics that are often researched by homeowners.
There are different types of floors, and they are made from different materials. Bamboo is a popular flooring choice, and is eco friendly. It is a highly renewable and sturdy material, which grows much more quickly than wood. Bamboo is a type of grass and can grow as much as 47 inches in just 24 hours.
Some homeowners enjoy wall to wall carpeting, and others choose to have hardwood flooring installed. Carpeting is usually manufactured in widths of 12 and 15 feet in the United States. New carpet prices vary depending on the size, style and type of carpeting, and on carpet installation costs. Carpeting is soft, but quite durable. The oldest existing piece of pile carpet, the “Pazyryk Carpet” is believed to be Armenian and from sometime in the forth or fifth century BC. In 1949, it was discovered in Siberia and still exists today.
