Hello!

We hope you and your loved ones had a happy and safe 4th of July! For us, like with many folks, summer is about vacationing and spending time with the family--but as we all know, it doesn't last long around here.

However, people vacationing are one reason why we stay so busy in the summer months. Sometimes renovations, such as refinishing wood floors, require homeowners to leave the house for a bit. What could be better than returning to a freshly renovated home after vacation?


Fun Fact
What prodcut in your home could have been made from recycled soda bottles?

Here's a hint...you've probably walked on it. That's right, carpet! Over 25% of the plastic bottles we reycle are made into polyester carpet fibers. Even the bottle caps are recycled and made into tubes which the carpet is rolled onto at the mill.

PET Polyester carpet is more affordable than most traditional carpets (like nylon) and offers exceptional stain resistance because the plastic bottles it's made from were engineered to contain and repel liquids.

Ask the Builders
QUESTION: I'd like to replace my carpet with something that's easier to clean. I prefer hardwood over tile but I'd like a floor that's a little more unique and easier to maintain than wood. Any options out there?

ANSWER: Have you considered cork floors? Believe it or not, but cork was actually a popular flooring option over 100 years ago! Cork is a renewable resource material and is made from the bark of cork trees. It has great resiliency qualities like carpet and is easy to clean like tile & wood. Cork is also skid & mold resistant and a good thermal & sound insulator. If you're worried about options--don't be. Cork floors come in many different colors, grains and textures.
