How to Buy Stone

Insight 01:

Select the right type of stone

There are a variety of options when it comes to stone flooring. To find the right fit for your home, you may want to consider many different types of stone. Seeing samples of different styles of marble, limestone and travertine will be helpful to select the best type for your needs.

Insight 02:

Make sure to see the samples in your home

If you are transitioning from a different type of flooring to stone, it is very important that you see stone samples in your home. Viewing the samples in your home’s lighting, next to your furniture and décor, allows you to better envision how the final product will look. It also helps when selecting the best colors and styles, as stone can have a high level of variability.

Insight 03:

Are you working with an expert?

Based on your home’s needs, traffic patterns, and layout, you may need to install multiple types of flooring. For instance, in one room carpet might be the best choice to complement the new stone. Having a highly trained Express Flooring Design Consultant come into your home and give you professional advice on the best flooring options for you is critical to making the best decision for you and your family.

Insight 04:

Keep your stone protected

Stone flooring naturally expands and contracts with the weather. Look beyond the product warranty and ask how long the installation is warrantied. If there are issues years later, are you still protected? It’s important to know that, unlike Express Flooring, most companies are unwilling to stand behind their work for more than the two years.
