Professional flooring installation ensures durability

Quality of the floor and skill level of the installers are two of the factors that determine a floor covering's lifespan. Flooring takes a beating every day as it absorbs the impact of foot traffic in the home. Some types of floors can become worn more quickly when they are installed improperly while others are more easily damaged. G & J Tile & Floor Covering is a locally owned and operated flooring retailer that offers top quality floor installation in Foley, Alabama. You can count on our installers to get the job done right.

Hardwood flooring installation

Prefinished and engineered hardwood can be installed in one day. Prefinished planks are nailed to the subfloor while engineered wood planks, which tolerate moisture, usually click and lock together. The floor is not attached to the subfloor, it floats over it.

Traditional hardwood floors are finished in the home. Boards are nailed to the subfloor and then sanded, stained, and sealed, a process that takes about one week. It takes an additional week for the floor to acclimate to its surroundings.

Stone and tile installation

When installing slate, marble, travertine, granite, and other natural stones, a lot of work goes into preparing the subfloor, which needs to be very level and clean. Stones can crack if the subfloor is not perfect. Natural stone floors need to be sealed.

Like stone floors, ceramic and porcelain tiles are pressed into a mortar and joined together with grout. Inherently waterproof porcelain tiles are the most durable tiles available. They are more dense and brittle than ceramic, and therefore, harder to cut.

Carpet installation

Carpeting is pulled across the floor with a carpet stretcher. It must lay flat throughout the room, and seams must be joined together so they are hidden as much as possible. Patterned designs sometimes present challenges. The correct padding must be used to guarantee durability.

Laminate and luxury vinyl installation

Laminate, which has a high-density fiber board core, and luxury vinyl planks and tiles mimic natural materials. Both types of multi-layer flooring usually fit together so that installers can construct a floating floor. Some brands are glued to the subfloor.
