What to Remember When Buying, Installing and Repairing Flooring in Arizona

Arizona has a hot dry climate for a good part of the year. Summer temperatures can range from 105 degrees to a scorching 120 degrees during the hottest part of the year. You will spend a good amount of your time in your home or at the pool during the summer months. Unlike other parts of the country where wet rainy seasons are important to consider, Arizona very rarely has more than a few days of rain. This makes worrying about mud and sludge practically non-existent.  The biggest issue that many people tend to overlook is concrete slab foundation in many homes. While many homeowners disregard the existence of moisture in the air, they overlook the fact that the ground is still packed with water. Concrete slab is not completely water-resistant and a water barrier is extremely important to consider when laying your new sub floor and finished flooring. Keep this in mind when planning your installation. Always have an expert review your floor before getting starting on your new upgrade.  Any cracks or unevenness in your floor should be reviewed by a certified professional prior to laying new flooring. 

Current Design and Architectural Trends

Arizona is likely the capital of the southwest design trend. Hosting some of architecture’s biggest names such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Arizona has influenced architecture and home design across the world.  Arizona is a state that has beautiful rural landscapes such as Sedona and Flagstaff, combined with a bustling urban area including Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe. The architecture throughout the state embraces its western history with a southwestern trend that can be seen from the stucco walls, cactus landscaping and rouge colored tile flooring.  

In the urban areas of Arizona more modern trends are becoming popular. New homes are more frequently using hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl tile and tile. Mexican themed tile is often used for decoration, but not as much as in the past. Rural areas are more frequently endorsing western themes and colors such as green and dark brown.
