Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?

Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?

Peel and Stick or Real Tile: Which Would You Prefer?
When it comes time for renovating the floors of your home, there are many styles you can choose from. The floor can set the tempo of your room and is a cornerstone to your specific design. Often times many people are torn between peel and stick tile and real ceramic or stone. Both of these have benefits that can determine which is right for your particular project.

Cost - Peel and stick tile is considerably less expensive to install as opposed to real tile. The vinyl tile itself can be as cheap as $0.39 per square foot depending on the style and brand you prefer. Ceramic, stone or glass tile can cost $2.00 per square foot and up depending on the same factors. This isn’t including the mortar and other additions that each method will utilize during construction.

Ease of Installation - When it comes to the installation between these two surfaces, peel and stick tile is considerably easier. Once the floorboard is fastened to the frame and possibly coated with Kilz, virtually anyone with a razor knife can place the tiles. The same can’t be said while using real materials for tile such as ceramic or glass. The difficulty jumps up considerably as more tools and precise measurements are more common. It is this difficulty that dissuades many from doing it themselves.

Style and Look - When developing the perfect look for your needs, real tile may just have a few more choices than manufacturers of peel and stick vinyl tiles. This is mostly because of the fact that nearly anything can be converted to support a flooring idea from real substances. Stones, marble, glass, ceramic designs and far more are available in a plethora of different shades and colors. However, peel and stick manufacturers have also produced an amazing array of styles to choose from – some of which look amazingly real.

Longevity – When it comes to lasting the longest through regular wear and tear, real tiles seem to have the most to deliver. If you’re using stone, this could be an amazingly long time. However, peel and stick manufacturers have included lifetime warranties on many styles. Above and beyond normal foot traffic, real tiles outlive vinyl as the materials rarely see irreparable damage from moving furniture about or walking a fridge across the floor to put it in the corner. In comparison, vinyl tiles are much easier to damage from various objects of the home.

Repairing - If a floor suffers damage and becomes in need of repair, peel and stick vinyl tile is much easier. Essentially, a razor knife and a new piece of tile can replace the damaged piece without involving chisels or hammers. In less time, you can have that old damaged piece of tile off of the floor and a new one in its place – as long as you have a replacement that matches the others.

Peel and stick tile can be a very cost effective way to provide you with the perfect look you want for a home. However, the strength and durability of real tile can provide a strong argument for reduced problems down the road. Each can be installed while providing an amazing elegance to any area. What it really boils down to is cost and installation time. Do you want a quicker and cheaper installation, or do you want to have long lasting strength and durability?

When is the best time to SELL?

When is the best time to SELL?

When is the best time to sell your home?

I get this question all the time from friends, family members and clients. The answer I give is that it is always a great time to sell! The Buffalo market is always active with buyers looking to purchase a home. In a perfect world I feel the best time to sell your home to get top top top dollar is listing your home in MARCH! This is the early spring season, there are multiple buyers looking for their new home and the inventory is low with homes. Many sellers feel that the spring time… April, May, June is the best time. While it is still a good time to sell, you will have to compete with more homes for sale in your neighborhood and this gives buyers an advantage.

The best thing I can tell people is to search for properties similar to yours in your area that are currently on the market.  If you feel the inventory is low or that you have the best looking home compared to what is available then get your home listed! Search HERE!

If you’re selling a home in Buffalo, NY and would like to get a price evaluation on your home please feel free to call me at 716-912-2915. I will personal come to your home and let you know what your market value of your home is. If it has been awhile since you bought or sold a real estate property I will explain the entire process and give you a detailed list of all the benefits it has by choosing an experience Realtor with HUNT Real Estate.
