10 Things You Should Consider

Before Purchasing Flooring & Countertops


1.     Ask the company for customer testimonials or find them online, see what others have to say.

2.     Look for hidden costs in items such as carpet pad or inflated

Installation costs, there are lots of ways to hide extras fees That might not be visible at first.

3.     How long has the business been established and what is their credit reputation?

If The Oregonian considers us experts and calls us for advise on flooring, why wouldn’t you?

When it comes to selecting a countertop, the options are nearly endless — and continue to grow.

Porcelain tiles have improved in looks and come as large as 24 inches by 24 inches, meaning you can cover 8 feet of counter and have only three grout lines.

And Formica recently created a laminate that looks like marble — and travertine and granite. The 180fx line is created by taking a photo of the real deal and turning it into a laminate that runs 5 feet without repeat.

With this in mind we asked Lisa Rattan at Pental Granite & Marble to help us compare the marble-like laminate and porcelain tiles to calacatta marble slab. Brandy Marsh with Area Floors provided basic installation costs on laminate and tile, while Aurora Ambrose from De La Tierra advised about fabrication of slabs.
