Read on to learn how you can keep warm with smarter flooring this winter!


Often touted for its sustainability factor, cork is also an exceptionally comfortable flooring option. Because cork is quite porous, it has more give than many other flooring materials, so it’s quite springy underfoot. Cork also gets sealed with a protective coating either prior to or after installation, so it’s highly durable and easy to clean. Ocean County homeowners who crave more support underfoot, but don’t something as plush as carpet, should consider cork as a comfortable alternative.

Heated Floors

Heated flooring is a practical and luxurious solution for Ocean County homeowners who are really worried about staying warm this winter. With heated flooring, radiant heat is installed below the flooring material, so the room is heated evenly. With this type of heating system, the naturally comfortable properties of the flooring material are showcased beautifully at your ideal temperature. Heated flooring is perfect for installing under tile, but also works well under engineered hardwood, and even vinyl.
