Sustainable Flooring!

April-Flyer

With qualities like natural beauty, durability, lasting value and comfort, there are so many great reasons hardwood flooring makes a smart choice for your home. You might be surprised to learn that hardwood flooring is also a smart choice for the environment. With today’s growing awareness of how energy consumption and waste build-up impacts the planet, many of us look for ways to “green” our homes with materials that are not only beautiful, but environmentally friendly. Hardwood flooring meets those expectations perfectly! WoodFloors1.351222710

  • Natural wood products are among the most energy efficient to produce with their manufacturing limited to running a saw blade and kiln drying. Advances in manufacturing technology and processes also make efficient use of wood waste and by-products. For example, tree bark is shredded into mulch, and sawdust becomes animal bedding or fuel used to operate kilns.
  • Wood products come from our nation’s forests, which naturally provide filtration and storage systems for our water supply, and they don’t require mechanical irrigation to regenerate. Responsible forest management selectively thins mature trees to create openings in the canopy that allow more precipitation and sunlight to reach the forest floor. Not only does this provide a thriving eco-system where seedlings and saplings grow, but sustainably managed forests can release slightly more water for a decade or so following timber harvest. traditional-wood-flooring
  • Wood is carbon neutral. Growing trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and separate the carbon and oxygen atoms. The oxygen is released back into the atmosphere, while the carbon is used to grow roots, trunk, branches and leaves. Sustainable management creates healthier forests that serve as a “carbon sink” to clean air of greenhouse gases and purify drinking water for wildlife and municipal water systems.
  • Hardwood flooring doesn’t collect dust or allergens that can become trapped in other materials and contribute to health problems. Plus, hardwood flooring is easy to clean and maintain, which means you can keep your home allergen-free with little effort. wood-floor
  • The lifetime of a solid hardwood floor can be more than 100 years. Additionally, a hardwood floor can be refinished several times to bring back its original luster. At the end of its useful life, a hardwood floor can be re-purposed into other wood products, from furniture to combustible fuel, or returned to the earth where it will naturally decay. Although a hardwood floor is strong and durable, you can trust that it won’t be found sitting in a landfill indefinitely!

From its sustainable source to its healthy qualities indoors, you can live green with hardwood flooring without sacrificing style, comfort or peace of mind.  Request a quote today!

Spring Forward into a Clean Home

StarFloors is committed to every aspect of your home. 

There are few rites of spring more satisfying than the annual clean. For many people, however, the pleasure comes only after the work is finished. While spring cleaning might not ever be effortless, it can be manageable.  We have provided a simple checklist to guide you through every room in your home. We have also searched the web for some good tips and tricks to help you through this task:

  1. Open the windows before cleaning. The fresh air will help minimize the smell of cleaning supplies.
  2. Declutter. Go through all your old stuff and decide what to toss and donate.
  3. Make a plan and stick to it.  It’s easy to get sidetracked, so it’s good to use a list.
  4. Make a playlist. Make the chore fun by listening to upbeat music.

Surfaces Review 2013

Last week StarFloors had the opportunity to attend Surfaces; the national floor covering conference in Las Vegas. The majority of the conference was well-spent getting inspiration for the new Dallas StarFloors showroom. This included developing the vision for 2013 as “Luxury Living” with StarFloors.

One of the hot products across all manufacturers was the softest of soft carpets. Mohawk and Phenix were just some of the few items presented to hit floors this year. Made from silk, these plush floor coverings will be available for clients to feel just how great they feel. It is definitely something to be felt for yourself.

Kane was one of the manufacturers to present more unique floor coverings. Fox fur carpets were quite popular and perfect for someone looking to create a custom rug. Kane also featured unconventional rugs with interesting textures and bright colors.

While on the road StarFloors looks for great opportunities for their sister company Starpower Home Theater. At Surfaces there were some manufacturers who had floors that were made especially for media rooms.This also included flooring with glitter flecks in it. A perfect floor covering for a dream closet or a dimly lit media room.

In the hardwood category, Indus Parquet was the leader inexotic woods. All from Brazil, the Parquet products were unique with each cutof the wood. These were most popularly displayed as accent wall coverings toshowcase natural textures.

Although LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) has been on the market, many manufacturers were showcasing new and different patterns to be rolled out this year.

Needless to say it was a good time for StarFloors to learn about the exciting flooring products available for 2013.

 

Congratulations to Royce Haltom, a Top StarFloors Territory Manager!

We sat down with Royce Haltom, Territory Manager for StarFloors in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, to ask him about flooring and what makes him so successful in the business. Read ahead to learn more about Royce and the trends he sees in the flooring industry!

StarFloors: Royce, thank you for meeting with us! What makes you so successful here at StarFloors?

Royce: Happy to be talking with you! I think what makes me successful is I’ve been in the industry for many years (9) and have gained a lot of knowledge through the years on flooring. Also, I am a good listener-I take the time to talk with my clients to figure out what would work best with their floors. I treat every job, big or small, like it’s the same and I give the same effort and energy to all my projects. I don’t pressure my clients but I give them honest answers which they appreciate and admire.

StarFloors: What is your favorite project to work on?

Royce: I love to work on big full house projects that involve everything from carpet in the bedroom to hardwood floors in the living room. I enjoy putting the design together to make it a one stop shop for the client.

StarFloors: Do you have a specialty, Royce?

Royce: Engineered wood is my specialty; I have done a lot of projects in the last couple of months with engineered hardwood floors.

StarFloors: What trends have you seen in the last couple of months?

Royce:  I have seen a lot of pattern carpets in the last couple of months. I used to see clients wanting the same carpet in each room but now, I see client’s wanting different patterns in different rooms.

StarFloors: When you’re not working at StarFloors, what do you like to do?

Royce: I love going out on the lake. I take my family out and we go wake boarding and spend some quality fun time in the sun!

Thank you Royce and congratulations on being so successful!

At StarFloors we employ the best and everyone at StarFloors cheers Royce on a job well done!

Star Companies Win First Place at the Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament!

On Saturday May 12 at TPC Craig Ranch Golf Course in McKinney, TX, our very own Pidgeon’s took First Place in the star-studded Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament. The foursome included David Pidgeon, President and CEO of Starpower, Steven Pidgeon, President and CEO of StarFloors Michael Pidgeon, CFO StarFloors and former Cowboy Tight End, Alfredo Roberts.

The Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational took place from May 11- 12, 2012 celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Dallas Cowboys’ 1992 Super Bowl Championship. The weekend consisted of a VIP Guest Reception, Reunion Dinner and Celebrity Poker Tournament followed by Saturdays Golf Tournament and Awards Ceremony.

During the weekend a live auction took place and Starpower generously donated a Dallas Cowboys Game Watching Experience with Emmitt Smith. What better way to watch an NFL game than with football legend and Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith. Emmitt will join the winner and 20 friends at your house or a Starpower location near you to watch the winner’s favorite team for the “homegating” experience of a lifetime.

Not only did Starpower generously donate an item for the live auction but the grand prize winner of the poker tournament walked away with a special Championship prize from Starpower. The winner received an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema. This projector puts the viewer in the middle of the action with blockbuster brightness and contrast!

It was a star-studded event with celebrities like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, Nancy Lieberman, Kenny Lofton, Barry Sanders, Jason Terry and many more participating in the weekend’s festivities.

The Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational is more than just a weekend celebration and golf; it is also about raising money for charity. Over the first two years of the golf tournament has helped raise $600,000 which will be used to further the mission of Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities, which is a public charity that creates and funds unique educational experiences and enrichment opportunities for undeserved children.

Congratulations again to the Pidgeon’s and Alfredo Roberts for winning the golf tournament!
