Should You Install Wood Floors Under Kitchen Counters?

Should You Install Wood Floors Under Kitchen Counters?

We often get asked if clients should install wood floors under kitchen or bathroom counters. The answer is, no, but in some cases, yes. Here’s why. It is easier to install flooring first, but that doesn’t mean it will be better in the long run, nor will it save you money, in fact it could cost you money. If you install heavy cabinets on top of a floating floor, or any kind of floor for that matter, it may become scratched by the counters. Replacing those pieces of flooring that are underneath the counter will be extremely difficult as well, and you will never even see them. Another reason, if you have any kind of leak, even a slow drip, it could slowly damage the flooring underneath your cabinets. This could warp your floors, and mold may become an issue. A very costly problem to have. If you have a floating floor, you want it to be able to expand and contract with the changing of seasons and climates. Having heavy cabinets resting on them will not allow the floating floors to do this properly, leading to possible warping and floor damage. In some cases you may have to install flooring first. In this case, have a professional flooring company prep the flooring correctly before cabinets are...

Eco Flooring for a Greener Earth

Eco Flooring for a Greener Earth

First of all, the material your flooring is made of is key to helping keep our way of life greener and cleaner. The quality of your floor product helps to determine how much of a carbon footprint, you and your lifestyle, and home, put off. If you’ve been duped into buying the cheapest laminate, vinyl, or engineered product then be warned, it won’t last. But maybe that’s what you expected, perhaps you just bought cheap, junky, flooring materials to turn a quick profit on your home flipping projects, if that’s the case, shame on you. Buying cheap products helps support dirty industry, meaning, those cheap products won’t last long, you’ll have to replace them over and over, and it takes more energy, and natural resources to produce those inferior flooring products you keep buying, this is not good for the environment, or your home project. Maybe it’s good for you in the short term, but have some integrity and do it right the first time. This is where I tell you that our products are pretty awesome, and will last a long time, especially for the price. That’s right, here’s a shameless plug for Revolutionary Floors. Hey, at least we are promoting products that will last and aren’t adding nearly as much to the degradation of our dirty climate. And, all the products we carry are CARB 1 and CARB 2 certified. We deal with Utah customers, and here in Utah, especially the Utah and Salt Lake City valley’s, we get terrible inversions. At times, these are the worst inversions in the world. We don’t want to add to...
