Mike Nakhel Flooring is a client-centered flooring store in Jacksonville, Fl, that offers a wide variety of floor covering styles. Natural flooring materials like hardwood and ceramic are always popular. Also, laminate and vinyl are functional human-made materials that are suitable for any household. Along with hard surface flooring, we offer carpeting in a variety of styles.
Plank style flooring
Unfinished and prefinished solid hardwood planks are nailed to a wood subfloor. In contrast, engineered wood planks are designed to connect at the edges. Thus, installers can construct a floor that floats above the subfloor. Engineered wood consists of a plywood base that can tolerate moisture and a surface layer of hardwood. All wood flooring can be refinished.
Clay-based ceramic and porcelain tile are time-honored favorites that come in sizes that range from mosaic to large format. Two-inch or smaller mosaic squares are available on mesh sheets for more handy installation. Porcelain tile floors and walls are impervious to moisture, while only glazed ceramic tile is waterproof. Harder and denser porcelain is more costly than ceramic.
Human-made vs natural materials
Laminate and luxury vinyl are multi-layer human-made materials that mimic wood, stone, and ceramic flooring. Each type of flooring has a backing, core, image, and wear layer. Floating floor brands are more common than glue-down brands. While both materials can be found in waterproof brands, only vinyl tolerates standing water. Laminate is waterproof for about one day.
