Laminate & Cork Flooring Calgary, AB
Laminate floors give your space a facelift in a pinch. Cork gives you a one-of-a-kind look.
Laminate floors are a great choice when you have a small budget or don’t want to commit to one look forever. Laminate is durable, so it is a great floor for high-traffic spaces; it is easy to maintain; and, it’s a good temporary solution, should you want to switch to your dream floors in the future. There are some drawbacks to laminate flooring. These floors are not sustainable; they cannot be refinished, but rather replaced once they start to wear. Also, many of the materials are not environmentally sustainable. However, they are a great choice for short-term use, or for high-traffic areas.
If you’re looking for a long-lasting floor with eco appeal, cork is what you want. Harvested from the bark of cork trees, cork is a renewable resource with many benefits; it bounces back to shape from most indents, holds heat, buffers noise, and repels water. It’s also hypoallergenic and static-free. Because of its cushioning effect, cork flooring is best suited for rooms in which you spend a lot of time standing, such as a kitchen.
As with hardwood, cork does fade over time. To get the most out of this attractive, sustainable floor with a lifespan of 10–30 years, we recommend sweeping or vacuuming it weekly and placing pads under furniture legs to prevent any permanent denting.
