If you want to improve the look of your home, replacing your flooring will make an impact whether it’s to one room or the whole house. In fact, changing your flooring will make your home look sleek and modern, but replacing your flooring has other benefits that many don’t consider.
Allergies: Old carpeting can harbor bacteria, pet dander, and pollen that can wreck havoc on a family member with allergies. Shifting from carpet to harder materials such as hardwood or laminate can alleviate and even eliminate this problem.
Resilience: Carpets should be replaced every 5 to 15 years depending on the quality of the material and use. A carpet that has seen wear may have stubborn stains making them unappealing. There are many other flooring materials that are easier to clean and stand up to traffic much better than carpet.
Luxury: Over time, wear and tear causes carpets to lose the plush look they were chosen for. The feel of placing your feet on the carpet as you get out of bed no longer has that appeal. Traffic wears down paths and discolors high traffic areas. New carpet brings back the luxurious feel to your home.
Blending materials: Many homes have standard linoleum in the bathrooms and kitchen and often a low-quality carpet throughout the rest of the house. Replacing your flooring gives you the choice to mix materials. You can place tile throughout the home and save carpeting for the bedrooms, choose a more sturdy tile for high traffic areas while placing carpet in areas where you might want to walk around barefooted, or if budget requires, you can choose a high-end material for common rooms and make a more affordable choice for private areas.
Whatever your flooring decisions or reasons for making them, Act 1 Flooring carries top-of-the-line products in a variety of styles and colors for every room of your house.
Act 1 Flooring and Supply proudly carries Dream Weaver carpets. Why Dream Weaver? They provide the luxury of a first-class carpet with the durability that will survive both children and pets.

Ceramic and Porcelain Tile
For a low maintenance, durable floor that looks outstanding in any home, choose ceramic or porcelain tile. This scratch, stain, fade, and chip resistant flooring enhances any room and is an ideal choice for bathrooms and kitchens where water can sometimes be a problem. Tile is easy to clean, usually only requiring water, but it also withstands harsher cleaning products when necessary.
Elevate your style with glass tile flooring. Glass tile gives a luxurious spa feel to bathrooms and can be arranged to create intricate mosaic designs on both floors and walls. Glass tiles come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors and can be blended with other materials to create interesting designs. While easy to clean and durable, glass tiles aren’t the best choice for high traffic areas as they tend to get scratches and break if hit by a falling object. Environmental friendly, glass tiles require approximately half the energy needed to produce ceramic tiles.
You can’t go wrong with hardwood flooring. Its natural beauty blends well with any style and color scheme.Hardwood planks vary in size from 2.5 to 7.5 inches in width. Choose a dark stain for an elegant home, or brighten up your space with lighter toned wood. Act 1 Flooring and Supply carries a wide selection of wood types including oak, birch, hickory, maple, and more.
If cared for properly, your hardwood floor will last longer than you do. It’s an excellent choice for families with allergies as it doesn’t give pollens, mold, and pet dander places to harbor. While hardwood floors do require maintenance and upkeep, they are easy to clean with a sweep and mop, and they add value to the home.
Laminate, an alternative to hardwood flooring, gives the classic elegance of hardwood at an affordable price. More scratch resistant and durable than hardwood, laminate is also easy to clean. This makes laminate flooring an excellent choice for high traffic areas and for families with children and pets.
Act 1 Flooring Clearance carries two brands—Nuvelle and Quick Step and comes in 5 to 7.5 inch wide planks in a variety of wood styles and tones.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury vinyl tile is not what it used to be. Technology has allowed luxury vinyl tile or LVT the ability to duplicate realistic images using 3D photography that closely resembles the look of natural wood or stone and comes in both planks and sheets. LVT products are resilient, but they are also easy to install and remove making it a great choice for those who may want to change their home décor.
Another vinyl product is vinyl sheets. Vinyl sheets are made of the same material as vinyl planks, so the quality is similar, but there are a few differences. The main difference is that the sheets come in rolls and is installed with no visible seams. Vinyl sheeting is a great choice for families with children and pets.
Natural stone is one of the oldest flooring choices available. While its use may have begun because of the lack of choices in the past, its timelessness exists because of its ability to bring nature inside the home, its strength, and its variety. Natural stone comes in many different shades and textures.
Act 1 Flooring offers two types of natural stone:
Travertine: Travertine flooring looks a lot like marble or limestone, but is a softer stone. While travertine has a tendency to scratch and stain, it’s still a durable product that is perfect for high traffic areas such as halls, kitchens, and baths.
Marble: Marble, a stronger stone than travertine, is still prone to scratches and stains, but its beauty has appealed to royalty for centuries, but it does require a sealing treatment in order to maintain its beauty. Marble flooring comes in a large variety of colors and patterns.
