I need my carpet replaced with cork flooring. Do you carry cork flooring? If so, what do you charge per square foot for cork flooring (lowest cost option)? What do you charge for installation of the cork flooring?

1.20 What flooring company made laminate flooring in Slovakia?

Q. I have a decent amount of click together laminate flooring that states it was "Made in Slovakia" on the back. The rest of the information on each plank reads D-9279 281005 305-SK 12:33. I still need a good amount however and I am looking foir more. Can anyone tell me who made this flooring and how old it may be? Thanks!

A. To thinks that you can actually get an idea to where it's made from in any of the info in the box or call the company. But what I know is that laminate flooring is a cool type of flooring especially if you lead a home a traffic day.

1.20 How can I make wood flooring with different colors and gains look the same?

Q. I am looking for a cheap flooring job in a room in my house, and it has to be wooden floors. I am friends with a guy that is a flooring contractor and he gets to keep all extra pieces that do not fit in the house. So he has all of the flooring that I need, they all fit each other, but not all of them have the same texture/gain and color. Is there any way to get them all to be the same? I was thinking that I would be able to sand them down and maybe stain them, but I'm not too sure.

A. Probably not. All woods accept stains differently. The only way to have uniformity with differing species and grains is paint.

1.20 What flooring can I use to impart a Japanese feel to my room?

Q. Aside from the expensive yet beautiful tatami mats, what kind of wooden flooring would impart a Japanese feel to my room? It's a small bedroom and I'm going to place a straw-type, tatami mat-looking, area rug to finish the room off. What flooring would be a nice accent to this?

A. Wood and tatami are expensive! plus real tatami is prone to hold nasty bugs (ticks and fleas and the like) which are bad for allergies so you have to do some serious cleaning and they need to get replaced every X amount of years. do japanese ghetto instead! get tatami mat rolls (the kind japanese take to the beach or instead of a blanket for a picnic or what some may use for a curtain) and lay these out on your floor. for real ghetto, duct tape them to the floor.

1.20 Flooring ?

Q. Im looking for a old floor tile . That they use back in the 70s and 80s. It call k36 parquet flooring. I use it to patch flooring with out changing the hole floor. It is called k36 9x9 Tung& Grove floor tile. Do you where i can get some.

A. Try checking on TV programs like "This Old House", and places like "Habitat Restore" Call your local "Habitat for Humanity ", if you don't find their restore in your phone book. Look in old DIY magazines for place that sold the flooring at the time. They may still be in operation and sell what you are looking for. Short of that, a master carpenter should be able to make you some repacement pieces. My Dad was a master carpenter....thats how I know IT CAN BE DONE !!! Just be sure you get one who knows what he is doing...there are some "carpenters that aren't worth the sawdust in their clothing or ears." Check with a local reputable carpenter shop, they may have a carpenter willing to work on the side to help you out. I would recomend my Dad but he is now with "The Master Carpenter" and has been for many years now. Parquet flooring is beautiful flooring. But if all else fails; buy the thin parquet flooring to match and fill in with some plywood as back filler. Depending on the thickness of the original flooring, you can use several thin layers of plywood or one thickness plus a thin to get the right thickness. Example: 3/8 ths + 1/4 th, 5/8ths +1/4th, or several of the 1/4 th inch plywood. You may have to sand it down a tad depending.... Hope this helps you out...I tried to think of as many places as I could. Oh, try salvage stores...sometimes they are are almost as good as the "Habitat Restores." :-)

1.20 What are good flooring options for a cottage that won't be winterized?

Q. We were hoping to put down laminate flooring but have been told we'd have to heat the floor at all times as stepping on it if it's been exposed to freezing temperatures could cause it to crack (shatter?) open. Real hardwood flooring is expensive and we don't really want carpet or linoleom. Any suggestions or advice?

A. Most quality laminates are meant to serve interiors which are not environmentally controlled all year long. You just have to make sure you're getting the good stuff. Ask your seller about the laminate floor's AC rating, to make sure it's likely to be durable enough for what you've got in mind. For a residence, you shouldn't settle for less than an AC3 rating. Generally, the fiberboard core of a quality laminate floor will help it to weather temperature changes. Also, you're going to want to choose a type of flooring which is low-maintenance for a cottage. You don't want to be spending too much time with refinishing and waxing flooring when you're meant to be relaxing. Laminate flooring requires dry or damp mopping or a vacuuming, but otherwise retains its look without too much intervention on your part. Don't ever install hardwood flooring in an area which is not environmentally controlled. The wood will expand and contract radically when in non-controlled conditions. For hardwood, this spells disaster - warping, cupping, the works! The great thing is, laminate flooring has really come a long way in terms of look. You can get laminate flooring which looks almost exactly like solid hardwood - even a "handscraped" look, or a beveled edge effect. And you still get that look without having to worry about the practicalities of maintaining a natural product in a less-than-friendly environment when it comes to extreme conditions. Whatever you choose to do, enjoy your new floor!

1.20 What type of flooring should I install in my kitchen & bath?

Q. I live in a small home (buillt mid -1950's) in the midwest. I want to replace the ceramic tile currently in kitchen/bath with something that is easier to maintain but that will still look nice. (I don't like the ceramic because its a) white, b) any thing made of glass that falls on the floor is guaranteed to break, and c) I absolutely cannot keep the grout clean, no matter what I do!) I would like the flooring I select to go well with the original hardwoods that are found throughout the rest of the home. I also want to select something that will appeal to buyers in a few years when we sell. The homes in our area sell for around $145K so I want to select flooring that is appropriate for this price range. Any ideas? Thanks!

A. See if you can get a small (1 inch) sample of your current wood trim. Take it to a flooring retailer and they can match it up to a SOLID flloring that you can have installed. I recommend SOLID rather than laminate because you are worried about dropping things. Objects dropped on laminate flooring can go thru the laminate and then you have to replace an entire section. With a SOLID floor, dings and scrapes will not show.
