As builders and remodelers, Experts in Your Home has heard just about every contractor joke known to man – and woman. Some of the jokes are even funny.

For homeowners, the upshot is not always worth cracking a smile about. Consider the age-old, “When is the best time to undertake a home improvement project?” Answer: “When you don't have to be home to deal with it.”

It's a safe bet: if the average Chico homeowner were handed a blank check from their favorite home improvement center, he or she would redeem it for new wood floors.

More than any other home amenity, wood flooring conveys warmth, style and easy elegance and complements modern décor as surely as it does homes with traditional furnishings.

Experts in Your Home has installed wood flooring in homes all around Chico – whether or not the homeowner has been handed a blank check. The first decision we ask homeowners to make is whether they prefer solid or engineered flooring.

It's easy to understand why tile is the flooring of choice among many Californians. Tile is durable, water-resistant and simple to clean, making it a fine choice for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and entryways. And because so many Californians have extended their living space with outdoor patios and kitchens, tile has found its way outside, too.

Of course, most of that gorgeous tile was installed a long time ago. When a new tiling project is on the horizon, something “funny” happens when some people lay eyes on the tile section of their favorite home improvement store. Like the finish on some ceramic tile, a glaze often forms – and not on the tile, but over their eyes.

It's easy to become confused over tile, so allow the flooring experts at Experts in Your Home to simplify the distinctions and point out some of the advantages and disadvantages of various tile.
