What is Cheap Flooring?

Cheap flooring has many different definitions, it is all in the eye of the beholder. For example, we here at The Floor Barn have a huge selection of cheap flooring, which to us means Low Cost flooring. Flooring that is of quality manufacturing by a brand name that you can trust, brand names that we have at discount prices compared to most other flooring retailers.

Then of course many people when they hear the word cheap flooring, they picture something that is not constructed well and will not last long, like cheap carpet for a low rent apartment. A word that is often thought of when people hear Cheap Flooring, is Seconds. Seconds are when the a flooring material could have a blemish yet is still functional. For example, say a laminate manufacturer is producing a specific laminate and on their production line a quality control worker sees that there is a small defect of some kind, like the photo image has small black spot where it is not supposed to be. They then take that plank and put it in a box, and they will do that with all their planks that do not meet 100% quality and then they turn around and box it and sell it at big discount to flooring retailers. This same process is common in all industries, like clothing.  So it is important that you ask your retail flooring system that you are not purchasing seconds if that is not what you are wanting. Some people  are ok with it because of the discount price they are getting.

So make sure you do your research before purchasing your new floors. It often is a big ticket investment and you do not want to make the wrong choice that you will likely have to live with for a long time.
