The floors are one of the first things guests notice when walking into a home. Clean, beautiful floors uplift a room and compliment the decor, while dirty and damaged floors drag down the rest of the room.

We take pride in providing the highest quality flooring and installation services throughout Texas. Allow us to help you with making your selection. After all, it’s something you’ll have to live with for many years.
Produced from trees, hardwood flooring offers excellent durability, longevity, and beauty. It can be more expensive than other types of flooring. However, it also adds increased value to your home. Some commonly used types of hardwood flooring include:
You’ll also need to put a little more effort into maintaining hardwood floors through staining and regular applications of wood oil.
Made from particle board topped by a thin layer of solid wood, laminate flooring is a more affordable option for homeowners who want the look of hardwood. In fact, laminate is available in any of the common hardwoods and exotic wood species for those who want something special. You can also find laminate that is made to resemble tile and marble. It may not last as long as wood, but laminate planks are easy to replace when needed.
Vinyl Plank Flooring
A vinyl plank that is made to look like hardwood flooring. This product is available in floating planks or peel and stick, so it’s very consumer-friendly. Vinyl is durable and waterproof, while offering more affordability than hardwood. Vinyl is also very low-maintenance and doesn’t need polishing or waxing.
Other Products Used for Flooring Installation
You’ll also find that there are other kinds of hard and carpeted flooring available. Energy Home Pros doesn’t offer these products, but you may be interested in learning more about them.
Concrete flooring is usually just the top of the home foundation that hasn’t been covered over. It may be polished and coated with a sealant to make it resistant to staining and water.
Homeowners can also apply a pourable concrete coating made with polymers to this floor. Pourable coatings provide additional protection from chemicals, impacts, and stains. Plus, they are available in different colors and patterns.
Ceramic or stone tiles are also used in many areas of the home, such as a kitchen or bathroom. These floors are durable but may crack or chip under impacts. If grout is used to secure the tile in place, it will need to be resealed every year. You might also need to touch up or replace cracked grout periodically.
A commonly found type of flooring in living areas, carpeting is made from woven nylon, polyester, olefin, or wool fibers backed by rubber or plastic. A carpet pad is also placed underneath this flooring to add cushioning for homeowners who prefer a softer surface.
