Types of Laminate Flooring

When it’s time to upgrade or change the flooring in your home, you have lots of options to choose from and many important decisions to make. Flooring is not only an essential aesthetic element of your home but also a design feature that creates comfort and requires durability. However, when making a decision on purchasing flooring for your home, the cost can play an important role in determining which styles and types of flooring are the most suitable for your family. Laminate is widely considered one of the best comprehensive solutions for residential and sometimes commercial flooring because it provides the hardwood look and feel you crave at a fraction of the cost. 

When it comes to the best laminate flooring types, professional flooring installers and homeowners rely on Floor Country Canada for expert advice.  As one of Manitoba’s largest specialized retail flooring stores, we have a wide selection of laminate flooring from all of the industry-leading brands you trust.

Choosing the Laminate that is Right For You

A laminate floor is a great way to add beauty and warmth to your home while not exceeding the family budget. It is offered in a variety of different colors, from replicas of exotic hardwoods to a more contemporary finish, lighter to darker wood tones, and even a rustic-inspired distressed wood look-alike. Due to the evolving technology nowadays we can even find laminate flooring in a ceramic tile look that can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, entryways, or any place in your home you desire to achieve a tile look. 

Laminate flooring is extremely durable due to its core construction (high-density fiberboard) and its top layer (melamine plastic) which gives laminate flooring qualities, such as stain, scratch, and fade resistance. If you are looking for a durable, long-lasting flooring solution that is easy to clean and maintain, consider laminate flooring.

Although laminate flooring will not add long-term value to your home as hardwoods do, it is an excellent alternative to hardwoods and can be a great option for a quick and affordable renovation when it comes to replacing an old, tired-looking floor.

When it comes to installation, laminate flooring is installed as a “floating floor“—planks are interlocking at the edges, without any glue-down required. Installation can be a simple matter of laying a foam underlayment, then joining rows of planks edge-to-edge across the floor. 

At Floor Country, we carefully select our partners throughout the Canadian flooring marketplace, cultivating relationships that are built on service, quality, and expertise, ensuring that all of our clients can rely on each and every product we sell and install.  We provide quality products from leading brands such as Twelve Oak Flooring, Fuzion Flooring, Opus, Kennedy flooring, Primco estates Collections, and many more.

Water resistant flooring

Water-Resistant Features

One of the most desirable features of laminate flooring is its ability to withstand damage from stains or spills. Floors are residential elements that endure foot traffic from people and pets, spills from food and beverages, and the constant threat of water from various sources. Laminate flooring is designed to be resistant to all of these elements, making it an ideal choice for homes with children or pets. The flooring is also easy to clean and maintain, which is another bonus for busy families. We offer laminates with waxed edges that give water-resistant features for up to 42 hours or 72 hours and there is Fuzguard Laminate from Fuzion that has an epoxy core and is water-resistant for up to 100 hours of water protection.
