One of the Midwest’s most successful residential and commercial flooring companies, FLOOR360 has a design process that is customer-focused, collaborative, creative and above all hassle-free. Plus, FLOOR360 has the unique tile, hardwood, luxury vinyl and carpet you want, along with the skilled interior designers and straightforward installation process to make your dream floor or carpet a reality.

“Our designers excel at bringing all the elements together to create a custom personalized space specific to the client’s needs and wishes,” says Jen Fickling, director of residential sales. “The design experience at FLOOR360 guides homeowners through every step of the process so that the end result brings their vision to life while meeting the functional requirements of the space.”

FLOOR360 designers are on top of all the latest floor and carpet trends. In fact, combining the two might be the most popular approach, and the designers know how to balance these materials effortlessly by uniting a lighter shade of hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl plank or laminate foundation in one whole level of the home and softening those spaces with custom area rugs, runners and stair runners, says Fickling. “Stair runners and custom carpet creations not only add a special design element to the home,” she says, “they also add a layer of safety and offer noise reduction, adding to everyone’s comfort.”

Designing and fabricating custom area rugs and stair runners is something FLOOR360 excels at. After discovering your ideal pattern and texture in the curated and exclusive luxury carpet collection, FLOOR360’s in-house carpet fabricator will precisely cut and bind your carpet for a polished look. Finally, a highly skilled installation craftsman will install your stair runner. Their expertise and attention to detail have taken them all over Wisconsin.

Carpet and Flooring Expertise
Proudly serving the community since opening its doors in 2000, CTW Abbey Carpet & Floor offers top-notch products with a design team that will guide you through all aspects of your home carpet and floor project. CTW will assist you in making the selections of materials and the layout or other design aspects of your new build or home remodel.

“Every family has different needs,” says Amy Fredrickson, interior designer at CTW, “and we like to engage that need while we determine what floor is right for our customers.” First, the design team narrows down the carpet or floor selection according to the client’s preferred fiber or product types, comfort and the space in which the new flooring will reside. “We will also dive into the technical portion of the process with our clients to figure out what subfloor provides the right environment for the floor they are considering.”

Room visualizers, which are available on the company’s website, work with your own home photos to help determine what your area will look like with several different floor options. Or CTW can introduce you to the tool in its store, covering innovations in flooring like the new antimicrobial microban or the latest design trends. “For a while now, people have been trying to incorporate more hard-surface flooring in the public spaces of their homes for easier cleanability and overall better wear. For carpet, low-pile textures or multitone plush carpets go into offices and bedrooms as people have nestled into their home workspaces,” says Fredrickson.

The business has one of the biggest up-to-date showrooms in Wisconsin. “CTW strives to inspire a family-like atmosphere! We work with our customers from point A to point Z. We measure our customer’s home, work through the selection process and arrange installs with the installer we see as the best fit for the home project and family.”

Power washing exterior of a house

Invest in Your Home’s Longevity
Yearly cleanings can save you money later on and instantly boost your home’s curb appeal.

Clear Vision Cleaning is a full-service cleaning and sanitizing company. Residential and commercial services include a range of projects such as window cleaning and pressure washing to roof and gutter cleanings. While homeowners might be tempted to take on these projects by themselves, doing them correctly can be very time-consuming.

“Our team is efficient and has all the tools needed to get the job done quickly. When homeowners take on something like pressure washing, they can spend an entire weekend completing the project,” says Kyle Ballweg, president at Clear Vision. “Our customers appreciate the convenience we afford them. Some of these projects can take up an entire weekend. During the summer, that’s precious time with family and friends.”

Homeowners might not realize routine cleanings like pressure washing a home’s siding can extend its life. Mold and algae build up and erode your siding over time. This is why Clear Vision Cleaning recommends getting your home pressure washed one to two times per year. Other tasks, like gutter cleaning, should also be done every year, but especially in the fall when leaves clog a home’s gutters. “If your gutters are clogged,” says Ballweg, “the ice and snow can damage your foundation and cause water damage to your home.” And keeping your home’s exterior pristine not only boosts your house’s curb appeal but also helps you avoid shelling out big bucks down the line, like you would if you had to replace a roof.

In fact, cleaning is a service that many homeowners do not realize is vital to a roof’s longevity. “If you have dark streaks on your roof, that can be an indicator that there’s mold and algae growing there. Getting it cleaned up ensures you will get the most out of your roof,” says Ballweg. Siding and patios are the same. “The solution we use for pressure washing is a sanitizing solution. It kills bacteria like mold and algae, but also germs. When the pandemic hit, we donated sanitizing services to area parks and day cares. It was something small we could do to help give peace of mind to parents.” Call Clear Vision Cleaning today to set up your appointment and make your home’s exterior shine.
