Here we will be discussing the different available option in types of flooring in construction :
- HARD FLOORING — Is the normal floor made of concrete, cement or different stone and tile items (includes; Marble, Granite, Sandstone, Slate, Ceramic, Vitrified, Mosaic etc.) which we will discuss further. The hard floors are the floors which take more time to be installed and once installed cannot be easily removed. These floors are strongly recommended in heavy traffic area and places of rough and rugged use. These floors are easy to maintain and has very long wear life.

Resilient flooring includes many different manufactured products including Wood parquet, Ply wood, Wood mosaic, Asphalt tiles, and Linoleum, Rubber, Cork, Sheet Vinyl, Vinyl Composition etc. (which also comes inside the SEMI HARD FLOORING). Resilient flooring products, such as PVC and Polypropylene are becoming more popular in specialty applications such as trailer flooring and garage flooring.
- SOFT FLOORING — is typically used indoors and can be used in both high and low traffic areas. It typically lasts for fifteen to eighteen years before it needs to be replaced. Carpet is a soft floor covering made of bound carpet fibres or stapled fibres. Carpeting refers to wall-to-wall coverage, whereas a rug is simply used to cover a space. Carpets come in a variety of materials including Wool, Nylon, Ole-fin and Polyester.
