Are Engineered Hardwood Floors Right For You?

parket-schurenEngineered flooring is a multi-layered product with species chosen as the top layer (veneer). Top veneers vary in thickness among manufacturers.

Installation methods vary depending on the structure of the material and the manufacturers’ recommended installation guidelines. They may be glued down, floated, or stapled.

This flooring can be conveniently installed directly on concrete and on wood sub-floors. Underlayment may be needed when installing on wood sub-floors if glued or stapled. When the floor is floated, foam underlayment is required.

Engineered flooring is more stable than solid flooring in any circumstance.

The manufacturers are always releasing attractive, updated engineered flooring in various widths and finishes in numerous colors and species. Whether you prefer smooth or hand-scraped, stop by Fred Callaghan Flooring to see the latest styles and trends.

Gray Is The New Tan

The flooring industry is heating up our blustery winter with HOT new styles, improved products, and exciting colors.

My father used to tell me, “Whatever you do, don’t throw out your fat ties.” In other words, what goes around, comes around.

Gray is back en vogue in a huge way. This color has returned as a trendy ‘neutral’. It’s been reborn in ceramic, carpet, vinyl, and wood. Gray wood? Yes, and it looks great! Take a peek!

Happy New Year!

2014 is going to be an interesting year for the floor covering industry. Our owner will be attending all manufacturer shows to discover the latest introductions to the market.

The first show we will be attending is Mohawk Industries. It includes brands like Columbia Hardwood, Wunda Weve Carpet, Karastan Carpet, Aladdin Commercial Carpet, and Congoleum Vinyl Products. We’re excited to see, feel and hear about the newest trends.


We predict vinyl floor covering and soft carpet will be on the rise this year, as the market cost of hardwood continues to steadily increase.

Truly a HARD Wood!

No more dings, chips, and scratches on these durable hardwoods! Why? They’re actually ceramic tiles! You won’t believe your eyes, even on second glance. Can you guess which one of these is actually true hardwood?

Did we fool you? Because NONE of them are!

Wood-look ceramic planks vary from 3″ wide to 6″ wide and lengths vary from 24″ up to 60″. Select from a wide variety of styles: traditional, rustic, modern, minimal grout, striated, or hand scraped.

tm_woodtile_vintage_woodlands_noon_lOther benefits of wood look-a-like ceramic tile:

  • Tile resists moisture, so it won’t expand or crack. Install it in your bath, kitchen or poolside without fear!
  • The wider the wood plank, the pricier the project. Not true with ceramic! That modern style can be all yours!
  • Tile is FAR easier to clean and maintain.

So, dance all you want in your stilettos! Adopt that large dog you’ve always wanted!

010812_2053_upfordebate1It’s an exciting time in the flooring industry, with so many innovative inventions and emerging trends. Flooring has truly become FASHION. Stop by and see the latest fashions for your home at Callaghan’s!

Re-Emerging Trends

Frieze twists, popular in the mid-sixties and early 1970′s, now dominate the new offerings from the carpet mills. Remember the greens and golds from the that era? They’re ba-ack. Shags? Solid patterns? Yep, they’ve returned as well!


Too young to know what we’re talking about? Think Bichon Frise puppy – that’s what many of these rugs resemble! Adorable, fluffy texture!

Highly twisted yarns give these carpets their upgraded contemporary look. They are a truly smart choice for any active home. The perfectionist in you will be placated – they rarely show vacuum marks or footprints, even though they’re a cut pile style. Select a style with an accent yarn (like berber flecks) and occasional stains will be conveniently camouflaged!

Winter months can wreak havoc on your poor floor, whether it’s new or old. During the powder season, the chemicals used to melt the snow can damage and bleach the stain of your hardwoods.


Be sure to keep a rug by entry doors and remove your boots and shoes before entering the home. Clean up any tracks as soon as possible.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact one of Callaghan’s flooring experts at 610-647-5566 or visit any of the manufactures’ web sites for care guides and warranty information.
