There are many quotes that advise us “Don’t look back!” or “Never look back.” Well today, we are, in fact, going back!

We’re going back to the time when the newly married Amanda and Dennis Kilgore of Columbia stared at their “very 1990s” beige and carpeted flooring in their town house and thought “Wouldn’t it be great if we could afford new floors?

Luckily dreams do come true, and the Kilgores were the winners of our first ever Spring Flooring Contest, which gave them $2,500 for new flooring toward their home.

To give you an idea of how excited they were for a change, we’re going to show you a couple before pictures from their home.

So what new flooring did the Kilgores choose and how did they feel about the process?

Thanks to some consultation from flooring expert Paul Allen, who has 30 years of industry experience and serves as a District Manager for Next Day Floors, the couple decided on CoreTec Plus Kingswood Oak 7″x48″ flooring in their first-floor kitchen and living room.

For those unfamiliar with CoreTec flooring, we’re going to share with you some of its benefits.

  • Waterproof
  • Resembles traditional hardwood
  • Enhances a home’s resale value
  • Affordable price point
  • Easy to maintain
  • Cork backing makes the floors more sound proof
  • Extremely durable
  • Popular choice of homebuilders and architects

“This is one of the fastest-growing products in the industry because it’s waterproof,” Paul shared with the couple. “Its performance in the home is excellent. It’s low maintenance and virtually indestructible.”

So what did the Kilgores think?

Amanda was at work during the installation, but when she saw her new flooring, she said, “I thought it looked really, really good.” Dennis said the Next Day Floors crew removed all the old flooring, which included a surprise layer of linoleum, and moved the necessary furniture. They showed up on time and completed the work in a timely manner.

“They were awesome,”  Dennis said. “I think they did a really good job.”
