What floor is best for you?

This blog post will briefly explain the various floors types that Canadia has to offer, their strengths and also their weaknesses. In doing so, helping you to choose the flooring that meets YOUR needs.

Let me start off by saying that there is no single 'best' floor type. Everybody has their own preferences. What you find important in a floor may not be so paramount to someone else. Some love the naturality of solid and engineered flooring, while others think more highly of the durability and almost-no-maintenance of laminate flooring. At the end of the day, you must decide what is most important to you and that will make your decision so much easier.

Laminate Flooring

Without a doubt the most popular type of 'wood' flooring in the market today. Constructed from large sheets of HDF, laminate flooring has an HD décor paper layer bonded on top to give it a 'wood effect'.

Solid Flooring

One of the world's oldest and most versatile floor coverings. As the name suggests, one thick piece of solid wood.

Engineered Flooring

The most popular type of 'real wood' flooring. Engineered flooring has a real wood veneer on top to give it the same look and feel as a solid wood floor. However, the layers underneath this veneer give it an added stability that you don't get from a solid wood floor.
