Resale Value and Columbus Flooring

admin

We’ve previously talked about Columbus flooring alternatives in the context of the local economy’s upward trajectory. We noted that people have been relocating to the area and that a building owner’s choice of Columbus flooring should try to appeal to transplants from larger urban centers.

Of course, that advice is mostly directed at owners of multifamily homes. It may also be useful to those who are planning to rent office space to companies that relocate here or open satellite locations. But what about all the individual homeowners who may or may not exploit rising demand for real estate in the near future?

If you’re thinking of renovating your local area home but you think there’s a possibility you’ll sell it at some point, what’s the right Columbus flooring for you?

There’s no definitive answer to this question. You’ll have to carefully consider the trade-offs between following your bliss and staying practical. And there is probably a compromise that stays close to your ideal Columbus flooring option while minimizing depreciation.

But as a general rule, if you have any concern for resale value, hardwood floors are the safest best. If and when the time comes to sell, Fedco floor services can help to clean and refurbish this type of Columbus flooring so it looks brand new.

Crucially, when that happens, the floor will also look like a blank canvas. It’s usually very easy for buyers to look at a hardwood floors and imagine whatever overlays or furnishings they think will work best. And fortunately, the existing homeowner has the same luxury.

You can cover over hardwood with an area rug, top-layer carpeting, or anything else that will help your house to be a home, right up until it becomes a commodity.

Open Houses: a Showcase for Columbus-Area Flooring

admin

With spring upon us, you can expect more real estate open houses in Ohio. More brokers and private sellers will be inviting you to walk over Columbus-area flooring if you’re looking for a new place to live, or for a real estate investment of your own.

If you do fit into either of those categories, you should consider that open houses can serve other purposes beyond simply prompting you to choose the best of the available options. It can also give you an opportunity to compare regional design trends and the features of houses and multi-family residences that are currently on the market. Of course this includes Columbus-area flooring.

In this sense, the open house circuit offers potential inspiration for renovations and upgrades that you might want to make somewhere down the line, either at the property you choose to purchase or at another property you separately own.

You can always just contact Fedco Floor Services instead, if you want a list of Columbus-area flooring options and their potential applications. But even though we’re confident that we can tell you everything you need to know about each item in our catalog, we recognize that there’s nothing quite like seeing flooring that’s already been installed, matched to its surroundings, and lived in.

So if you’re in the market for a new Ohio home or even just for new Columbus-area flooring, we’d encourage you to take advantage of available open houses. Keep your phone at the ready to take pictures of any flooring options that speak to you, and if you have any questions about cost, installation, and so on, feel free to show us what you’ve found.

Fedco Floor Services: We Love Your Pets!

admin

Fedco Floor Services bids greetings to its customers’ furry friends. February 20 was National Love Your Pet Day. Residents of Columbus and cities across the US had an opportunity to give extra attention to their pets and think about what they can do to improve the quality of life for their animal companions.

You might not think of Fedco Floor Services as something that can help you with this. But in most households, pets spend a lot more time on the floor than people do. So it makes sense for the flooring in Columbus homes to be selected and maintained with an emphasis on any animals that live there.

Of course, there are two sides to this issue. You want your pets to be comfortable, but you probably also find it’s easier to show them affection if you’re not worrying the messes or the damage they can cause. In this sense, pet owners (and the owners of pet-friendly apartments) have a particular challenge in selecting from the various options offered by Fedco Floor Services.

On one hand, carpeting may reassure you that your pet always has a good place to lounge without climbing on furniture. But on the other hand, it risks becoming a magnet for stains. Still, if this turns out to be a problem that you can’t handle on your own, Fedco Floor Services can provide the sort of deep cleaning that leaves your carpets looking practically as good as new.

Alternatively, you can avoid the extra trouble of periodic maintenance by opting for a vinyl, laminate, or another of our flooring options that sacrifices a little comfort for easy cleaning and a great deal of resistance to scratches and stains.

As with any other single factor in your Columbus flooring selection, there are pros and cons to a number of different alternatives. Whether your main concern is your pet’s comfort or your own peace of mind, the exact right type of flooring is available, and Fedco Floor Services is prepared to help you find it.

Why Fedco Floor Services Watches Social and Political Trends

admin

Fedco Floor Services is apolitical. But we believe in the value of keeping up with nationwide trends. It may seem surprising, but this can have a meaningful impact on choices of flooring in Columbus, OH. As circumstances change, people’s priorities and preferences can change in various areas, including the design and construction of the places they choose to live or invest in.

We mention this because we’ve noticed the sudden upsurge in popularity and awareness regarding a set of policies known as the Green New Deal. Without taking a position on the value or practicality of those policies, Fedco Floor Services can recognize the effect that it may have on national dialogue about climate change and environmentalism.

You might say that there’s been recent pushback against green priorities, but the overall societal trend has definitely been in favor of new approaches to resource management. This leads us to believe that more and more consumers will be taking environmental impact into account in many of their future decisions, including decisions about flooring in Columbus.

We at Fedco Floor Services don’t need to change our way of doing business in order to address that trend. Neither do we intend to. But we will be prepared to respond to inquiries regarding which types of flooring are best for insulation, which are most sustainable, and so on.

Fortunately, as the market pushes in the direction of greener alternatives, many buyers of flooring in Columbus, OH will find that a smaller carbon footprint often goes hand-in-hand with long-term cost savings. Better-insulated flooring is good for the environment, but also for your pocketbook. And sustainable like bamboo are often durable, as well.

Your own political views might influence your priorities as a consumer, but you might find that when it comes to flooring, it’s unusually easy to find common ground. And whatever your own priorities might be, we’re prepared to work with you to select that flooring that is best for your home, and perhaps also for the world around it.

Building Holiday Traditions Upon Columbus Flooring

admin

Last month, we talked about how hosting a Thanksgiving meal can get people thinking about kitchen flooring in Columbus homes. Now that it’s December, much of that same discussion can be applied to Christmas, which may bring similar challenges to host kitchens. At the same time, other types of flooring in Columbus may also receive unprecedented wear at the forthcoming holiday, simply from the foot traffic of visiting relatives, or from children turning carpet into just another piece of furniture as they spend time opening gifts and playing with newfound treasures.

Once again, the heavier use of various types of flooring may inspire homeowners to reconsider whether their current surfaces will be suitable over the long term. Perhaps you’ve already thought about new options for the kitchen flooring in your Columbus home. But now it may be time to decide whether your living room flooring provides adequate comfort, or whether the room where you do most of your entertaining is too prone to picking up stains on its floor.

In Columbus as throughout the world, new traditions are constantly being invented and reinvented on major holidays. So if you expect this year to be the start of your long-term role as host of local festivities for Christmas or any other holiday, it may be time for you to start building the right environment for those festivities, from the ground up. That is to say, you should begin with the right choice of flooring, and never again worry about whether a given room in your Columbus home is the best place for whatever happens there, be it once a year or every day.

Prepare for Thanksgiving, or Recover from it, with Fedco Floor Services

admin

It’s November, and for many people in the Columbus area, that means their kitchens are about to get more use than any other time of the year. Thanksgiving is a good time to reexamine the state of your kitchen, and that may include the makeup of your kitchen floor.

Fedco Floor Services provide a wide range of Columbus area flooring options. But we find that for many consumers, their sense of customizability doesn’t quite extend into the food prep area. Some people grew up with tile floors in their kitchens and decided that that was the only viable option. But hardwood, cork, laminates, and even concrete are all good alternatives for Columbus area homeowners. And all of them represent unique advantages, depending on how you kitchen is used throughout the year.

Any problems you encounter on Thanksgiving Day – such as excessive noise, poor traction, wear-and-tear, or difficulty in cleaning – are problems that you might wish to discuss with Fedco Floor Services the next time you consider replacing or upgrading your kitchen flooring. After all, the issues your kitchen confronts on the busiest day of the year are likely to crop show up on a smaller scale throughout the year.

If Fedco Floor Services can help you to address those issues, it may greatly improve the experience you have in a room that many people consider the heart of the home. Alternatively, if you find you are just looking to reset and get back to normal after the challenges of Thanksgiving Day, you can rely on Fedco Floor Services to thoroughly clean and repair any kitchen floor that has taken a more serious beating than it’s used to.

Will Your Columbus-Area Flooring Need Cleaning After Halloween?

admin

We’ve advised you to get your Columbus-area flooring ready for the change of seasons and the additional hazards that come from fallen leaves and colder weather. But for some of our customers it may be worthwhile to focus on one specific day that could pose an imminent threat to Columbus-area flooring.

Of course, for most people, Halloween will only bring a succession of little feet to their doorstep. But some enterprising homeowners are sure to put their Columbus-area flooring on the line by organizing home-haunts and inviting all the neighbors in for a scare, or by hosting Halloween parties filled with potentially messy activities.

We wouldn’t want to discourage anyone from enjoying the holiday or helping others to do the same. But we would advise you to be prepared in case your Columbus-area flooring ends up in need of deep cleaning on or around November 1st.

Halloween activities can bring an awful lot of careless feet onto various types of flooring. Fragments of leaves and accumulated moisture can accelerate wear-and-tear unless rooted out right away. And that’s to say nothing of the risk of candy and stage makeup melting onto surfaces.

We don’t want to scare you, even though that would be in keeping with the season. But if your Columbus-area flooring is going to be exceptionally well-trafficked this Halloween, you might want to consider scheduling a cleaning with Fedco Floor Services ahead of time, to be sure your floors no longer look spooky after October is done.

Growing Need for Multi-Seasonal Columbus Flooring

admin

The weather in the Great Lakes region has been finicky heading into the start of autumn. Now in the middle of September we still seem to be sort of caught between summer and fall, and this has implications for Columbus flooring. It’s a phenomenon that may not be unique to this year, but may instead reflect a general trend toward longer summers and fluctuating transitions between seasons.

On this blog, we’ve talked plenty about how local weather can wreak havoc on Columbus flooring and amplify the need for professional cleaning from a company like Fedco Floor Services. All of that is worth keeping in mind as Mother Nature decides what season we’re going to occupy for the rest of September.

But up to this point, we’ve given comparatively little attention to how changes in the local climate might actually change one’s decisions regarding flooring options in the first place. Whereas the anticipation of long, hard winters might have once made someone opt for carpeting in living areas, nowadays the lingering summer heat could make tile and laminates seem like more attractive Columbus flooring options.

Whether or not your own decision-making has changed in this area, it’s a good idea to look at the times of transition between seasons and think about which Columbus flooring alternatives will maximize your comfort all throughout the year. Of course, we’re happy to help you come to a conclusion on that point. And afterward Fedco Floor Services can also help you make the best of that decision by keeping your Columbus flooring in good repair at all times.

Will Flooring in Columbus Follow National Trends?

admin

Recent market research suggests that there is an ongoing increase in the demand for soft covering flooring products. While this research deals with national and even global trends, it’s probably safe to assume that it has some bearing on what to expect from flooring in Columbus over the coming months and years. Thus, that research may be of particular interest to Columbus real estate owners and property managers who deal extensively with multi-family homes.

If you’ve been in that field for a long time, you’ve probably witnessed the waxing and waning in popularity of various kinds of flooring in Columbus. On a national scale, hardwood and laminate floors grew in popularity as younger Generation Xers and then Millennials made their own homes and bucked many of the trends of their elders, who helped to popularize carpeting. Now soft covering may be making a comeback, and it’s up to property owners to consider whether to take advantage of that trend of wait for it to shift again.

There are a few ways to tackle this problem of competing alternatives for multi-family flooring in Columbus. One option for property owners is to stick with hardwood, laminates, or similar alternatives and provide individual units with area rugs in order to accommodate both general categories of flooring preference. Another option is to install altogether different flooring in different units, and pass on the final choice to tenants. And of course, you could simply go along with current trends and hope that they last long enough that none of your flooring in Columbus-area apartments starts to look out-of-fashion in the near future.

Whichever alternative you choose, Fedco Floor Services is here to help with selecting the appropriate floor covering and installing it. And even if you take the hard road of installing new flooring on a regular basis, you can trust that we will make the process as quick, inexpensive, and painless as possible.

Fedco Floor Services: for Summer Weather Conditions

admin

With temperatures climbing and humidity levels fluctuating across Ohio, Fedco floor services would like to take the opportunity to call attention to the danger that summer weather can pose to certain types of flooring, such as hardwood and laminates.

In previous posts, we’ve emphasized the threat posed by water damage and salt in the winter months. And we’ve also made a point of highlighting the particular risks of wide-ranging seasonal changes, which make it important for property owners in and around Columbus to rely on professionals like Fedco floor services to regularly clean and maintain their more sensitive surfaces.

Everyone with carpeted floors is aware of the need for deep cleaning after periods of heavy foot traffic, which often coincide with the summer months. But not as many people pay attention to the havoc that hot, humid days can wreak on other types of flooring.

Fedco floor services can, of course, mitigate these dangers through professional installation, as by providing space under the baseboard so laminate flooring can expand and adapt to more humid conditions. Maintenance and cleaning can also reduce those effects once they’ve been incurred.

But many weather-related dangers can be avoided at the outset by carefully choosing the flooring you have installed in different areas, or by controlling the conditions that that flooring is exposed to.

Of course, many customers lack the relevant knowledge of which conditions are dangerous to which type of flooring, but this is something that the staff at Fedco floor services are eager to help you understand. Toward that end, they are ready in any season to work closely with you while making sure that you get the greatest possible enjoyment and the longest possible life out of the flooring in any building or room you own.
