Carpets versus Hardwood Floors

House remodeling is a difficult task for a novice general contractor. It takes a lot of planning and resources to make a house remodeling project succeed. Sometimes, home owners are faced with dilemmas and headaches if they hire the wrong kind of general contractors to do the job. There are things like flooring, glass windows, sliding glass doors, and lighting, roofing and electrical concerns to worry about.

One of the most common dilemmas of homeowners is to choose between carpet and hardwood floors for their new flooring. There are pros and cons for each and the best choice would depend on your lifestyle. How many children you have and how old they are. Some people with a lot of boys and young toddlers often find their hardwood floors full of scratches after a year or so. Other parents complain about getting the carpet messed up all the time when kids spill their drink or food on the floor.

Another concern during house remodeling is the glass windows, accent mirrors and doors. Some people like a lot of glass in their home like sliding glass doors and wall to wall glass windows. Glass is a sensitive material that needs professional installation. If you’re general contractor or glass installer is not highly qualified, the glass might break if it is not installed properly. A mild earthquake or light object hitting your sliding glass doors can cause badly installed glass to shatter. Credible house remodeling companies have highly skilled and well trained general contractors who can mount glass safely.
