Description: Initial installation cost, annual maintenance cost, and total long-term cost are important in the purchase of flooring products. Before deciding on a flooring material, the prudent buyer will consider each of these in relation to his personal desires. From these evaluations, he will then be able to select the flooring material that is best suited to his individual needs. In an attempt to help alleviate this problem, we recently conducted a study to obtain unbiased information about the various flooring materials used under residential conditions.
