Hard Surface Flooring
There are a variety of hard surface flooring options that are great for residential settings. Most offer natural looks such as wood and stone, but there are other patterns and styles available. What sets hard surface floors apart from other flooring options, however, is the increased stability against foot traffic and other impacts. Hard surface floors, especially when compared to soft surfaces such as carpet, typically have thick constructions and strong top layers.
As a result of the increased strength and stability, hard surfaces are easier to maintain than soft surfaces. Once the surfaces are sealed, the floors only need to be routinely swept to eliminate dust and other particles. Plus, if a plank or tile is ever damaged, it can easily be replaced without affecting the rest of the floor. It is no surprise that most hard surfaces, when properly maintained, can last for decades.
We at Parkland Carpet One Floor & Home carry hard surface options such as wood flooring in our Regina, SK showroom.
As part of our wood flooring selection, we carry many styles of hardwood flooring. Hardwood is without a doubt the most popular wood flooring option, as it offers natural style and strength.
Laminate flooring looks, feels, and even is installed like hardwood, but it offers greater wear resistance and dimensional stability.
Vinyl flooring, like laminate, is specially-made to look like hardwood or tile. But, vinyl offers even greater wear resistance and durability, as well as relative softness and warmth underfoot. For even greater performance, take a look at luxury vinyl flooring.
Tile flooring is popular in kitchens and bathrooms because it offers water and heat resistance. We recommend ceramic tile and porcelain tile for residential areas.
