How to know whether you need a new floor

Buying a new floor is no small thing, and a lot of thought needs to go into the decision before you buy one.

Whether you have an engineered floor, or a laminate one, we can help you make the right choice for your home.

So, here are a few small indications that you might want to change your floor, and things you’ll need to think about when you do.

The linoleum is peeling

One of the first signs of an ageing linoleum floor is peeling over several places, or if there looks to be air underneath certain areas.

Quite often, it is possible for these damaged areas to get damp, which further exasperates the issue; spreading the problem across the floor.

In these instances, it is almost definitely time to start considering a new floor.

Luckily,  and we have a range of quality flooring options, including laminate flooring from some of the best flooring brands in the UK.

The hardwood floors have been sanded too many times

There’s no doubt that hardwood flooring is one of the most durable types on the market, and one of the great things about it is the fact that you can re-sand and restyle a hardwood floor multiple times.

That said however, if you’ve just moved into a new home, it can be hard to tell how many times that a hardwood floor has been reworked.

You can ascertain if a floor has been sanded too much if it begins to have structural problems, or the planks show signs of movement as you pass over them.

If this is so, it’s a possibility that you might need a new floor.

There are cracks in the planks

One of the more obvious signs of a well-worn wooden floor is if there happens to be cracks within the planks. From engineered flooring through to solid wood flooring, virtually any kind of aged or unkempt floor can suffer from cracks.

The unfortunate thing about cracks is of course the fact that they serve as a breeding ground for insects and mites, which can lead to an ever-worsening state throughout the home.

If you’ve just moved into a home and there are cracks along your floors, the chances are that it is best time to start looking for a new floor.
