Gorgeous laminate flooring in a Calgary, AB home

Choosing laminate for your Calgary home

Laminate flooring provides a cost-effective way to get a wood look, including in spaces that are not appropriate for hardwood flooring. Don't be afraid to think outside the box! White laminate planks are a great alternative to the standard dark variety.? Laminate tiles that mimic stone and ceramic are another option. There are many types of laminate flooring, which means that the design possibilities are endless. Westvalley Carpet & Flooring is a laminate flooring store in Calgary, Alberta, that offers the trendiest styles. We can come to you if it is more convenient. Our shop at home service is always popular.

Durability of laminate flooring

There are many reasons that laminate is a good flooring choice, and durability is at the top of the list. This floor covering tolerates heavy furniture, lots of foot traffic, and daily wear and tear. It?s one of the most pet-friendly flooring options available. Laminate is resistant to scratches, stains, and moisture so muddy pet paws don?t cause damage. Most brands are designed to maintain their color even when exposed regularly to sunlight. It?s easy to judge durability. Look for an Abrasion Criteria rating of AC3, which indicates that the flooring will stand up to heavy residential use.

Laminate flooring installation

Laminate is a wood product that has a backing layer, fiberboard core, design layer, and wear layer that protects the design layer. This composition creates a floor that is quiet when you walk on it. Laminate flooring can be installed in most areas of the home. Typically, planks and tiles fit together so when the floor is finished, it floats above the subfloor. The floor can often be installed over existing flooring as well as wood and concrete. While less expensive brands come with a 5 to 10-year warranty, the best brands are backed by warranties of 20 years or more.
