I think by now, most of us know we should be on Google places or google local...which I think has now been folded into google plus.  Here is a link to our https://plus.google.com/106785613221594358563/about?hl=en There are certainly things here I'm trying to optimize (including linking to my correct website), but that's a story for another post.  If you haven't done one for your business, do that today.  I'm guessing that by following my link, you can do that and create your own.   I think we also know, having reviews on here can help you.  We currently have 6 reviews (we used to have more, but as google shifted their algorhythm some got kicked out).  Oh well.  Having reviews in here is important as customers see this as an objective 3rd party place and this will often come up when peop...

Refinishing hardwood floors in Westchester NY - Everything you ever wanted to know about sanding your floors. Refinishing your hardwood floors can have a huge impact on your Westchester County home.

Yes, this year has really been off to a fast start.  Even the winter months have been busy.  The real estate market has been buzzing along and most of the real estate agents are singing a different tune this year.  They are saying they are BUSY.  They are optimistic...quite a different tune from the last few years.  And the home improvement market is HOT, too.    It's really a double win for us.  Those staying in their homes want to improve their floors...and those moving to new homes need to refinish and improve/replace the floors.  Oh, and we are even getting calls from many about to put their homes on the market.  So, I guess, it's really a triple play.   So, what are we doing to capitalize on this shifting market? 1.  We are hiring!  We can barely keep up with our leads now, so I'm ...

Luxury vinyl plank and tile is a high end vinyl that looks like real hardwood or tile.  Unlike sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl comes in individual pieces - either large tiles (w/ grout lines) or long planks like wood.  Because they are individual pieces, they look real and most have embossing, so that they have ridges to mimic the look and feel of hardwood graining or natural stone.   There are many advantages to high end luxury vinyl: 1.  Luxury vinyl looks and feels real - The material looks incredible.  Most customers are surprised at how good it looks and how real it feels.  Unlike laminate flooring, which is a floating floor, high end luxury vinyl adheres and glued directly to the floor.  So, it also feels real when you walk on it and it doesn't make that tinny noise nor move underneath ...

We've been getting more and more requests for laminate flooring in Westchester County. Some of our customers are choosing laminate as an alternative to hardwood and others are upgrading from carpeting to laminate floors. So, why is laminate flooring on the rise? 1. Laminate flooring looks like real hardwood. It is amazing how far laminates have come these last few years, and they come in a variety of colors and styles. They are made to mimic virtually every type of hardwood. They come in matte and shiny finishes and some even have micro beveled edges for a very impactful look.  There are even some options that mimic the handscraped and distressed hardwood look. 2. Laminate flooring can be installed quickly. Often, if you subfloor is straight/even and secure, laminate flooring can be pla...

Here's a look back at my top posts for February 2012  It's always fun to look back at the previous month to see which posts rose to the top.  These are sorted based on clicks.  Also, by the way, traffic to my new site The Flooring Girl has more than doubled in February vs. Janaury. Only one of these top posts is about flooring. Do you remember your first Featured Post?  This was featured and created a look back at the memories and comments from my first feature.

In Westchester NY, hardwood floors are the preferred flooring.  It is beautiful, natural, authentic, timeless and just goes with everything.  It makes your space look larger and it is easier to clean.  In the long run, it will also save you money (vs. carpet that gets dirty and needs to be replaced every 5-7 yrs).  And, of course, it improves the value of your home. Over the weekend, I read an article about why hardwood flooring is so popular...besides the obvious.  What I thought was so interesting is that one of the reasons deep down inside that we love hardwood flooring is this overriding cultural trend towards AUTHENTICITY.  With so much going on in our lives, and so much distrust out there (whether it's govetnment, corporations, banks, or whatever), we all crave people and things t...

It's always fun to look back at the previous month to see which posts rose to the top.  These are sorted based on clicks.  This month has less clicks than usual as I had so many members only posts (due to our recent contest).  The other aspect is that I've been so unbelievably busy with my business, that's been challenging to find the time to write some quality flooring posts.  Ironically, my blogging is making me busy...and too busy to blog. So, I'm trying to find some ways to blog efficiently again (yes, I will be doing some more templated posts) and soon I hope to do some more educational posts.  I'm also working on my wordpress site and starting to do some guest blogging, so there is only so much I can do, and I certainly need ot prioritize. The good news is that while the hits on m...

Family Rooms are one of the most popular spots of the home in Westchester NY.  It seems that this is where the bulk of the "awake" time is spent and it's a room that is fun and where the family just hangs out. Because this room gets heavy usage (and often it's a key place to eat snacks), the floors often need to be replaced here more often. Here's what I'm seeing from a trend perspective in Westchester NY. 1.  Hardwood flooring is usually the preferred flooring choice for family rooms in Westchester NY.  It looks great, it's warm and inviting and it last longer.  I see so many families trading up from carpet to hardwood...because, the carpeting gets dirty and worn down pretty quickly.  Hardwood flooring, especially solid hardwood, will last for centuries.  It's easier to clean up and le...
