Our President, Nick Kautz, started Superior back in since 1977. With his long history in the carpet industry, he began to build his own flooring empire. Just over a decade later, his success gained him recognition with The Home Depot, thus Superior became an Authorized Service Provider for flooring projects in the Chicagoland area. Today, Superior is still a family owned and operated business specializing in Carpet and Hard Surface flooring. In addition to flooring, we also offer additional services such as decking, pavers, custom home organization including closets and blinds, basement remodeling, carpet cleaning, concrete coatings, and much more! Just ask us if we can provide a custom service! Can you briefly explain the differences between a deck and porch?

How can you turn your concrete backyard porch slab into a luxurious Outdoor Living retreat? Here are a few ideas: - Patio Pavers: a relatively inexpensive option for a home on a somewhat level terrain.

As it becomes cooler, outside air will more than likely be heated for indoor use. Unfortunately this also means that humidity levels inside your home maybe dropping substantially. This in turn affects several things related to hardwood floors such as wood shrinkage.

It is important to remember that winter brings many challenges for hardwood floors, which are often only remembered during the heat and humidity of the summer months. Now that it is winter, furnaces have been running in many regions for several weeks. Therefore shrinkage may occur due to the loss of moisture in the wood.

The only reliable way to prevent cracks from opening is to maintain constant relative humidity year round. A simple investment in a humidifier can do wonders for maintaining a ...

Superior Corporation of Illinois’s Gift Giving Season was a success on Monday, December 23, when three Home Depot employees were selected to be Superior’s Gift Giving Recipients. Two of The Home Depot’s employees received hand wrapped Christmas presents for their whole family, and one employee from The Home Depot received a monetary donation.

As a result, over $1000 in hand wrapped presents were given out to the two families. In the Chicago location, presents were delivered to the home of Members Hosley, an Assistant Store Manager who, until recently, worked for the Home Depot out of Gurnee, Illinois.

To save money on heating, you can put on an extra sweater and turn the heat down, of course. But Forbes.com has some ideas for cost-effective ways you can cut your energy costs and still be comfortable:


Insulate. Having the proper insulation can cut heating and cooling costs by up to half. Insulation costs range from about 40 cents to about $2 a square foot, plus installation – which you might be able to do yourself. Options range from blown-in foam insulation to more environmentally friendly natural or recycled materials.


Seal leaks. Leaks in your attic, basement and around windows and doors can cost about $70 a year, while sealing those leaks with weatherstripping or caulk costs $100 to $600. You can do it yourself, but you should consult a ...

Children are continuously moving, curious, and are constantly learning about the world around them. They climb, they crawl, and they get into things they shouldn’t get into. Naturally we are inclined to ‘child proof’ these areas. We buy gates to get in their way, plastic casings to stop them from turning knobs, and covers to stop from unpleasant shock. But what about the other every day issues we give little thought to?

October is National Child Safety Month, giving parents the perfect opportunity to rethink their homes in terms of child Safety. Window coverings are definitely one part of your home that should not be ignored, and with good reason! ­According to Shades Shutters and Blinds, “Hundreds of children will hurt themselves as a result of playing with the cords ...
