A New Year addition
As you’re preparing to entertain family and friends this holiday season, you might be thinking about making a few changes and improvements to your home in time for the next holiday season.
Updating the flooring in your home can make a huge difference. And you can find some of Oahu’s best flooring deals at H&C Flooring and Stone in Honolulu.
“If you love the look of natural wood, but don’t want the upkeep, consider vinyl flooring,” says Wen Cao, owner of H&C Flooring. “It’s spectacularly low-maintenance, extremely durable and it stands up beautifully to heavy foot traffic. Clean it with any decent vinyl flooring cleaning product and you’ll be pleased with the results.”
When you visit the H&C showroom, you’ll immediately notice dozens of styles and shades of vinyl flooring, including rich wood tones like Cherry Acacia, Espresso Teakwood, Golden Shade Maple, Henna Oak, Textured Sandalwood, and new colors like Gainesboro Grey Pecan and Haze Grey Oak.
“Our flooring is made with a click system, so it’s quick and easy to install with simple tools,” Cao says. “Also, the backing is built-in, so you don’t have to put down underlayment first.”
The company carries a wide assortment of molding accessories: matching baseboards, reducers, thresholds, end caps and 90-degree corner molding.
“We also offer a product called the Super Stairnose,” Cao says. “It makes flooring projects much easier for do-ityourself homeowners.”
Normally, people have to make their own edges for open staircases and stain them afterward.
“Our Super Stairnose tread panels are made with side noses already attached,” Cao explains. “They’re ideal for staircases without a wall on the left or right side, or either side.”
Available in shades to match every vinyl flooring option offered by H&C, each panel is highly textured for maximum slip resistance. Panels are also available for staircases with walls on both sides.
“They don’t have a nose on either edge, but only in front,” Cao says. “Both styles can be applied in minutes with curing glue.”
H&C now offers vinyl fencing in four different styles. The company’s resilient vinyl fencing is perfect for island homes.
“Wood fences need regular maintenance, and after a while, they rot away,” Cao says. “Vinyl fencing requires no upkeep, and it lasts forever.”
And the company still sells some of the highest-quality sliding shower doors you’ll find in Hawaii or anywhere with sets starting as low as $350 apiece.
“We have two different types of frames — chrome stainless steel and chrome aluminum — in five different styles, made with 3/8-inch tempered glass,” Cao says.
H&C’s showroom is currently located on Dillingham Boulevard, but will move to a new location on Nimitz Highway on Jan. 1. The showroom will be open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays.
“We’re looking forward to being able to display a lot more new merchandise,” he adds.
What a way to launch the new year!
