Bliss PermaSoft® Plus Cleans Easy, Feels Luxuriously Soft

permasoft-sd-nylon-carpetWhen customers come looking for a carpet that’s durable and cleans easy, but still has that luxurious, deep softness, we often recommend Bliss carpeting with solution-dyed PermaSoft® Plus technology.

Nylon carpets are known to hold up over time, and the warranty on this carpet is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. When compared to carpets that are not solution-dyed, Bliss PermaSoft® carpet is more cleanable and fades less. That’s because the solution-dying process colors the fiber to its core. As the years go by, your carpet will stay remarkably close to its original shade, no matter how much wear and cleaning you put it through.

We’d like to see you down at our showroom to really feel and appreciate the softness you can get from such a durable, long-lasting carpet that holds up to kids, pets, and almost anything you throw at it.

Teragren Bamboo Flooring: Beauty that Lasts

In recent years, bamboo has emerged as one of the most popular flooring types, and it’s easy to see why. Bamboo is beautiful, durable, and easy to maintain, making it ideal for just about any room. It’s also a renewable resource, making it an attractive choice for those who are eco-conscious. Teragren bamboo flooring comes in three main models to meet all of your flooring needs.

XCora Solid Flooring

XCora Solid Flooring is a strand bamboo that offers hardness, durability, and stability, making it perfect for those high-traffic areas in your home or office. It comes in five varieties, including wide-plank and solid-strip models, to match and enhance any aesthetic.

Pureform Solid Flooring

Pureform Solid Flooring is a prefinished bamboo flooring that lends an air of elegance to any residential space. Available in long-plank and solid-strip models and a broad range of decor styles, Pureform is both functional and chic. Whether you’re looking for a traditional look or something more contemporary, Pureform has the aesthetic you need.

Engineered Bamboo Flooring

Offering increased performance, durability and beauty, engineered bamboo flooring is ideal for most residential spaces. With traditional and contemporary aesthetics, Teragren engineered bamboo comes in three wide-plank styles to meet your design needs.

Hope to See You at the Dutchess County Fair

In what has become an annual tradition for us, the Northern Dutchess Hardwoods booth at the 2015 Dutchess County Fair is all set up and ready for your visit in Building C! We’ll be here 10am to 10pm, starting today day and lasting through the weekend.

We had such a great time last year meeting lots of new people (and selling some floors). We’re very much looking forward to this year’s festivities. There’s nothing like seeing thousands of smiling people streaming through the fairgrounds, and being within arm’s reach of carnival food at all times is not so bad either.

Hardwood Floors: Sustainable & Eco-Friendly

Chopping down trees to make your flooring might not exactly sound eco-friendly, but it turns out that hardwood floors are the most green, sustainable option for your new floor installation.

Sustainable forest management now makes it possible to harvest wood without any significant impact on the environment because, as stated by the US Environmental Protection Agency, “trees are a renewable resource that can be replaced time and time again”.

In addition to being a renewable resource, natural wood products are among the most energy-efficient to produce, since manufacturing is limited to running a saw blade and kiln drying. Many of the waste and by-products in wood manufacturing are reused or recycled. For example, sawdust is made into animal bedding, or is used as fuel to operate kilns, and tree bark is shredded into mulch. Energy-efficient without the waste? What more can you ask for?

The use of natural wood flooring products can also help to increase water conservation, since forests don’t require mechanical irrigation to regenerate. In addition, responsible forest management can help to create thriving eco-systems where forests can release slightly more water for up to a decade following timber harvest.

Besides being eco-friendly to produce, hardwood flooring can also improve the environment inside your home. Since hardwood flooring doesn’t collect dust or allergens like some other flooring types, you can enjoy superior air quality with minimal effort.

Hardwood floors are long-lasting, with lifetimes that can reach 100 years and beyond. Unlike other flooring types, hardwood is relatively easy to maintain. A scratch or ding can easily be touched up or concealed, and the floor can be refinished several times to bring back its original beauty. When a hardwood floor has reached the end of its life, it can be repurposed into other wood products or returned to the earth where it will naturally decay.

If you’re looking for a new flooring installation that is beautiful, long-lasting, and “green”, natural hardwood is the way to go. Stop by our Red Hook showroom for the area’s leading selection of hardwoods, from budget-conscious brands to rare and antique hardwoods. We look forward to seeing you!

Why Wait for a Flooring Sale? We Give Great Deals 24/7

When searching for flooring specials, it can be difficult to sort a deal from a dud. There are so many confusing options! First you’ve got to find floor sales, or wait for a great floor promotion to come up. Since most companies don’t do flooring sales that often, you could be waiting awhile. Then you’ve got to worry about the quality of products on sale. Oftentimes, a company will use flooring specials to unload inventory that they can’t otherwise move. Finding the right flooring at a great discount can be a hassle!

Top 3 Myths About Big Box Flooring (Why You Should Shop Local)

Home Depot. Lowe’s. Lumber Liquidators. The list goes on. They’re collectively known as “big box stores”. And unfortunately, most people don’t truly understand what it’s like to buy flooring from one until it’s too late.

To save you some trouble, we’ve compiled the top 3 myths about buying flooring from big box stores:

Big box stores always have better prices & what you want in stock

While big box stores are able to buy in bulk, they don’t necessarily have more availability than small businesses. We have all of the popular flooring types in stock and priced low–we even beat out some of the big box prices. Even better, we’re able to special order to your custom specs, so you can be sure you’re getting exactly what you need! Most products ship to us in days, not weeks, so you can enjoy your new flooring products right away.

Big box stores have more product choice

This is a myth that simply isn’t true. Big box stores have to limit their product line to focus on the products that are most popular, and get them the most profit. If you’re looking for something unique or special like antique hardwood or a custom tile mosaic, you’re better off visiting your local flooring business. We have thousands of flooring samples here in the showroom, and tens of thousands more ready to order!

Big box stores have experienced, competent installers

Big box stores love to advertise how reliable their installation services are, but in our experience, unprofessional installation is the #1 complaint we see from customers who went to a big box for their flooring. You can trust that our professional installers have the skills and know-how to get the job done right. With us, you’re much more than just a number–your satisfaction truly matters.

Don’t just take our word for it. Visit the big box store, then visit our showroom in Red Hook, NY. We’re confident the difference will be crystal clear.

3 Important Questions to Ask Before Buying a New Floor

At The Flooring Source, we’re always happy to answer any questions that you may have. We could talk flooring all day long, but we realize that your time is valuable (and often limited). To make things a bit easier for you, we’ve put together some questions that will help you to have a better idea of exactly what you want when you come to our showroom.

Who (and what) lives in your home?

Do you have babies crawling around on your floors? Do you have the high traffic of teens and their friends? What about older adults? Do you have pets scratching and scuffing things up?

While all types of flooring can handle all types of people and animals, there are some obvious (and some not-so-obvious) combinations to avoid. For example, if you have pets, you may want to avoid softer hardwoods in favor of durable vinyl, or carpet that can handle tough stains and odors. Children are prone to spills and can speed up wear and tear, so you may opt for tile or linoleum. If you have a young child who is just learning to walk, carpet can help to cushion falls. Walkers and wheelchairs can get caught in tile grout, so you may do best with tile or laminate if you live with someone who is elderly or disabled. We offer a wide variety of all flooring types, so no matter what your needs we’ve got you covered!

Which rooms are you putting new flooring in, and how are they styled?

When you’re selecting flooring, it’s vital to consider the function of the room. Tile and stone may seem like the obvious choice for the bathroom, but did you know that you can get tile that looks and feels exactly like hardwood? Most people want something that provides warmth underfoot for the bedroom, so hardwood and carpet are great selections. Kitchens floors get a lot of wear and may get wet, so linoleum and vinyl are frequent choices. We offer a broad range of flooring types in all styles, so you’re sure to find something that is both functional and stylish.

What is your new flooring budget?

Price varies widely across flooring types, so it is important to know your options. For example, hardwood can be expensive, but you can achieve the same look with vinyl or tile. Carpet has traditionally been mid-range in terms of cost, but now carpet tile allows you to get an even better deal. Vinyl and laminate are stylish and durable at a lower cost, making them ideal for smaller budgets. No matter what your budget, there’s a floor to match. The best way for you to price your project is to see us for expert advice and a fast, free quote.

We always have great flooring in stock and on sale, so come by the showroom today!
