- Condition of the subfloor being installed on
- Your ability and attention to detail
- Type of flooring you are purchasing (see chart below)
- Method of installation needed for the subfloor being installed on
|Tile||Available in a variety of colors, styles and textures; durable, stylish and easy to maintain/ moisture and stain resistant||Can be difficult to install; prone to chips and cracks and worn grout; cold, hard and noisy underfoot|
|Stone||Elegant and increases home value; easy to clean once it is sealed; durable and long-lasting||Recommended professional installation; can be slippery and prone to chips and cracks|
