How to Properly Schedule Flooring Repairs Around Holiday Activity

The holidays are a busy time of year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your flooring redone before the festivities begin. The best step you can take to install flooring before the holidays is to choose a flooring type that works for your space and can be installed efficiently with little prep work and minimal downtime. This way, you can get back to planning for the holidays, decorating, and preparing your home for guests.

Here are some flooring types to install so that you can enjoy your flooring by the time friends and family come to visit.

What to Know About Different Flooring Repairs

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl tile flooring is easy to install, durable, and aesthetically pleasing. This scratch-resistant flooring is perfect for high-traffic areas where you’ll be spending time with friends and family around the holidays. Vinyl tiles are made of several layers so that they can stand the test of time and repel mildew, mold, dents, scuffs, and more. 

Vinyl flooring can be made to look like other appealing flooring types but at a fraction of the cost. You can install vinyl flooring that looks like hardwood, stone, or tile. But unlike hardwood and stone flooring, vinyl will be able to withstand kids, pets, and high-traffic locations like entryways. 

Installing vinyl hardwood flooring is especially easy when installing vinyl plank flooring. This is installed similar to hardwood since it comes in planks and not sheets of vinyl. It can be glued down or clicked together and installed on the floor. Unlike vinyl sheets, vinyl plank flooring is not stored in rolls. They are ready to lie down on the floor and stand the test of time. Vinyl sheets take longer to adjust to the flat surface and can result in curling during installation.

Laminate Flooring

Laminated floors are a composite material and, like vinyl plank flooring, can be installed by clicking it together. Laminate floors can also be glued or nailed down, but if you’re looking to save time, it will be more efficient to use planks. After installation, laminate flooring will need 48 hours to settle before use.

These floors are made of very tough material, so they can withstand a lot of pressure. They’re also low maintenance and easy to clean. However, they are relatively susceptible to moisture intrusion, so regular cleaning is essential for longevity. 

Laminate floors can also be installed to look like much more expensive hardwood flooring. Save more money for gift giving with laminate wood flooring. It’s just as easy to install as vinyl and other types of laminate floors, but they offer a timeless feel that is sure to impress all who visit your home.
