When you choose to live in a coastal environment, there are certain building materials that best lend themselves to a life by the sea. Whether you are building a new home or plan to remodel an existing one, LBI Coastal Builders can offer suggestions as to some of the best flooring options for your Long Beach Island home that will look just as good the day it is installed, as it will years from now.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Who could imagine that luxury and vinyl would be complementary words?! This wood-look vinyl flooring has evolved significantly over recent years and has become a staple in flooring for many beach houses. LVT is water resistant which makes it ideal for your shore house or any kitchen or bathroom, whether near the water or not.
- Easy to install
- Resistant to water and sand
- Easy to care for
- Resembles real wood
Ceramic tile is another favorable option for a home near water. It is very durable, easy to clean and water resistant. It is important to note that the tiles and grout should be sealed properly, especially in areas where there is water.
- Maintains a cool temperature in warm weather
- Low maintenance
- Environmentally friendly
- Moisture resistant
If you are looking for hardwood flooring, prefinished hardwood is the best option in a coastal enviroment. Prefinished hardwood is solid wood flooring that has a factory applied finish that protects it from moisture and discoloration.
- Durable against stains and scratches
- Better value than unfinished wood
- Can be refinished 3-4 times
- Upon installation, the floors can be walked upon immediately
Any of these flooring options would be an optimal choice for a home by the water. LBI Coastal Builders looks forward to sharing our expertise for your renovation or custom home on Long Beach Island.
