What's the best type of flooring for Boston homes?

Thumbtack Editors

While Boston is known for its wildly variable weather, the most popular types of flooring tend to be dictated by style and comfort. Tile is comfortable and durable, particularly with radiant heat beneath it, and is not vulnerable to pests like termites. Choose more resilient flooring options for outdoor patios, such as flagstone, composite decking and brick.

Talk to a flooring installation company or specialist in Boston to see how you can prevent freeze-thaw cycles from damaging your outdoor flooring.
