Types of Flooring for Charlotte Homes

There are many popular flooring materials that you can select for your home. While some flooring materials offer substantial durability, other materials provide a more stylish appearance.

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood is the most popular flooring material because of its pristine and luxurious appearance. Since hardwood floors will improve the aesthetic of your home, they also increase your home value. Installation services from a hardwood floor installation contractor can cost anywhere from $6-$22 per square foot.

Carpet flooring is popular because it's comfortable to walk on and is available in many different styles, colors, and textures. Keep in mind that dirt and other debris can accumulate within the carpet fibers, which means that regular maintenance is necessary. Carpet flooring costs around $3.50-$11 per square foot.

Ceramic tile is a common flooring material for kitchens and bathrooms because of its high moisture resistance. You can find tile in many different colors and patterns, which allows you to select tile flooring that matches your home's interior design. The four types of ceramic tile to consider include glazed, quarry, terracotta, and porcelain. After hiring our tile floor installation contractor, the total installation costs will likely amount to $15-$20 per square foot.

Laminate flooring is an alternative to hardwood flooring that's affordable and highly durable. This material is easy to customize and can have a similar appearance to many other flooring types. Laminate flooring is made from fiberboard and plywood. Laminate flooring usually costs around $4.50-$8.00 per square foot.

Luxury vinyl flooring is a highly sought after flooring material that can provide your home with an upscale appearance. This material comes in clickable planks that are easy to install. Even though luxury vinyl flooring can improve a room's appearance, it doesn't cost substantially more than other flooring materials. When you seek luxury vinyl floor installation, you can expect to pay around $5-$14 per square foot.

Floor Installation Costs in Charlotte

The costs associated with installing new flooring can vary drastically depending on numerous factors. In general, you should expect a new flooring project to cost anywhere from $6,000-$30,000. However, total project costs depend on the materials that you select and how large the installation space is.

Remove Existing Flooring

Install New Flooring Material

Whether you request hardwood floor or tile floor installation, the main stage of the installation process involves placing the materials correctly.

  • Current flooring no longer has a modern aesthetic
  • Flooring has been stained
  • Odors are present in the flooring material
  • Rips and tears are noticeable in the material
  • Flooring has experienced structural issues or cracks

Benefits of New Flooring in Your Charlotte Home

Installing new flooring materials in your home can offer numerous benefits, including:


  • Increase Home Value - New flooring can make your home more appealing to you or prospective buyers who are searching for a home that's received recent updates.
  • More Durable - Get a new floor that will last and stand up to lots of foot traffic.
  • Allergy Reduction - Old floors contain high amounts of allergens and dust, which means that updating your flooring should result in an allergy reduction.
  • Safety - As flooring ages, it can become warped, which heightens the risk of tripping. Upgrading your flooring eliminates this issue.
  • Improve Utility Costs - If your new flooring is more insulated than your previous flooring, it should help you maintain indoor temperatures, which will lessen monthly utility costs.
