Commercial flooring materials for St. James businesses need to meet tougher standards than those used for residential homes. This means opting for floors that can withstand high traffic and whatever other surprises a busy retail store or physician’s office might throw at them. If your brick-and-mortar business needs a new look from the ground up, replacing your commercial flooring could be the solution. Here are four great picks from Floor Coverings International Shallotte to consider.

Commercial-Grade Wood Laminate

This material looks like real wood but functions like laminate. As a result, it’s extremely durable and resistant to scratches, scuffs, and cracks. Laminate floors are easy to professionally install, and they’ll look good regardless of how many people walk all over them. Laminate wipes clean easily, requires no special sealants or cleaners, and is easier on employee feet than concrete or tile.

Vinyl office floors in St. James

Luxury Vinyl

Vinyl is an economical option that won’t wreck your remodel budget. Soft to stand on for eight hours, but durable enough to withstand heavy foot traffic, vinyl flooring is a popular choice for brick-and-mortar businesses. Luxury vinyl takes it one step higher by mimicking those high-end floor coverings such as wood or stone. Get any look you desire without all the specialized care that comes with it. Commercial-grade luxury vinyl cleans up easily with just water and a soft, damp mop.

Commercial carpet tile in St. James

Commercial Carpet Tiles

Office spaces and businesses that see less foot traffic may benefit from attractive commercial carpet tiles. Made from nylon, olefin, or polypropylene, commercial carpet is traditionally low pile, unlike its residential counterpart. It can stand up to moderate foot traffic for years without showing wear. Carpeted floors help muffle sound vibrations and add traction and warmth. Plus, carpet tiles are easy to replace if damage or staining occurs.

Rubber commercial flooring in St. James

Rubber Flooring

Rubber flooring in St. James may be made of natural or synthetic rubber, and it’s a popular choice for gyms and play areas where a cushioned yet durable floor is needed. Synthetic commercial rubber floors are generally manufactured using recycled car tires, which makes them planet-friendly flooring options for the environmentally-conscious business owner. Rubber floors can be used in many commercial spaces, including garages, shopping malls, and fast-food restaurants.
