Frequently Asked Question that we find ourselves answering all the time.
How much does it cost to do my floors?
It depends on area and material mainly, but other factors might come in consideration. For example, if your living room floor needs a refreshed look, then a 2mm glue down vinyl option might work just fine. The normal rate in Chicagoland goes from $4 -$6 per square foot (material and installation included), if your living room is 520 sf you’re looking at a $2000 – $3120 investment.
Now, you decide that you want wood floors instead of vinyl, then the cost is going to be very different because is a different material and certainly more labor intense for the installation.
What if I pay cash?
Thank you, all payments are welcome. In today’s business landscape cash is not king anymore.
Should we get the “thick” vinyl?
Thickness doesn’t matter, it’s most about your floor base and how is installed. The 2mm glue down is the most convenient and quickest option for most properties. After we do a walk through we’ll suggest the best options depending on what you want and your budget.
How long does it take to install the floor?
Anything that has to dry or set, generally takes 2 days. When talking about vinyl, carpet, and tile, the average installation takes 1 to 2 days depending on the size of the area.

What’s the best for flooring?
It all depends on your project. Some customers look for flooring that will help their families with allergies or pets, other customers are looking to add different textures (carpet, vinyl, tile) and so on. At the end of the day is best to talk to one of our professional consultants and hear recommendations for your specific needs.
What’s the newest for flooring?
The trend in the Chicagoland area is to have vinyl floors on basement, living room and dining room, carpet for bedroom, tile for kitchen and bathrooms. If you want to upgrade go with wood floors instead of vinyl.
What’s the difference between 2 mm vinyl and interlock?
The interlock is a floating floor, which if done incorrectly could trap moisture in between the floor and the base.
The 2mm glue down will adhere to your base floor with no gaps and wont let any moisture in, making it a perfect water tight seal. Strongly recommend for office space and basements.
