Hardwood Flooringhardwood flooring east cleveland


The beautiful and timeless aesthetic of hardwood flooring has made it a classic option for any East Cleveland home. Our experts at Floor Coverings International of Mentor can walk you through the Janka Hardness Scale to help you choose the perfect style for your home. The red-hue of Brazilian cherry will give your home a traditional look, while the light tone of maple will work well in a minimalist home.


Hardwood flooring is not the most budget-friendly flooring option. While some styles are more affordable, they are all more expensive than wood-look alternatives, like laminate and luxury vinyl plank. However, hardwood is much more long lasting, meaning that over time it will be an incredibly worthwhile investment. Even if you’re not living in your forever-home, hardwood floors can still be worth the price. Hardwood will easily increase the resale value of your home.

Advancements in technology have given laminate flooring an incredibly realistic hardwood appearance. Laminate is one of the best ways to get a luxury flooring in East Cleveland, without a luxury price tag. From hickory to oak, we can help you find the perfect style for your home. Its durable surface is great for busy families and pet-friendly households.


While laminate flooring is more budget-friendly than hardwood, it is not nearly as long lasting. Unlike hardwood, it cannot be refinished, so once damage occurs the only way to repair it is via replacement. If you properly maintain your laminate flooring, with regular sweeping and mopping, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about damage occurring. If you are on a tight budget, then laminate is right for your East Cleveland home.
