Flooring that can take a beating

In a space dedicated to exercise, your flooring needs to be able to handle a lot of abuse. Dropping weights can place dents in expensive floor coverings. Constant high foot traffic can wear down delicate floors. Moisture from sweat and spilled water can also be a source of damage. With all of these factors working against your flooring, it is important to find gym floors that will stand up to everything.

Home Floors offers a variety of flooring that is safe for use in both home gyms and commercial workout spaces. We carry everything from rubber tile to engineered hardwood. We also provide the proper subflooring to prevent your floors from breaking down under pressure. Our installers will visit your commercial or residential space and place the materials of your choice with an expert hand. Read on to learn more about what makes our gym flooring products and services the best choice for your home or business.

Things to consider when shopping for gym flooring

There are a number of important things to remember when you are going to shop for gym flooring. For starters, the materials you use in the rest of your home or business will likely fail in an exercise space. This is because of increased stress due to constant impact, foot traffic, and exposure to moisture. Even the subfloors need to be changed to support the weight and stress that will be applied to the floors. There are a few other important considerations to keep in mind when you are shopping for gym flooring:
  • What is the space going to be used for? There is going to be a notable difference between a free weights room and a basketball court. You should use different flooring materials for each. You should also consider how often space will be used and what sort of furnishings will be in it. Do you need a floor covering that has shock absorption for weights, like rubber tile? Or something with a high amount of traction and durable construction, like northern maple hardwood? Knowing the purpose of your space will help make shopping for your gym’s flooring easier.

  • What kind of subfloor do you need? Subfloors are not one type fits all. Different types of flooring will require a suitable subfloor to match. Do you have a floating floor or one that will be attached to the subfloor itself? Do you need something that has a higher resistance to moisture or something that will muffle noise? Consult with one of our experts to discuss which types of subfloor will go best with your choice of gym flooring.

What is your ideal price range?

Many homeowners and business owners will naturally be concerned with the prices of the flooring that they look at. Prices are normally determined by the quality and source of the materials used to create the floor coverings. You should know what you are prepared to spend before ever stepping foot into a showroom or looking online. It is also a good idea to consider the overall installation and maintenance costs. This will help prevent unpleasant surprises later when you find out that the flooring you want could surpass your overall budget.
