Stay Warm This Winter: Calgary’s Best Flooring Options

During the harsh winters in Calgary, it’s crucial to pick a durable flooring option that can endure extreme cold and fluctuating temperatures when visiting your local flooring store.

The right flooring can maintain warmth and prevent damage to your home, including issues with pipes and structural integrity. Selecting resilient materials in cold weather is vital to keeping your home cozy and protected.

Additionally, implementing specific tips in this article provided by Deerfoot Carpet & Flooring, your local flooring experts, can enhance the warmth and comfort of your living space during the colder months.

1. Vinyl Plank Flooring

This flooring type is increasingly popular due to its ability to resemble hardwood floors while providing better insulation. Its layers trap heat, making it ideal for Calgary’s chilly winters. Plus, vinyl plank is known for its moisture resistance, crucial for snowy climates.

2. Laminate Flooring

Laminate’s multi-layer structure offers a warm touch and durability, resisting scratches and wear in high-traffic areas. Its top layer can mimic various finishes, giving your home a stylish look and practical warmth.

3. Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood combines the beauty of hardwood with greater thermal efficiency. Its construction, with a hardwood veneer atop multiple layers of plywood or fiberboard, allows it to handle temperature swings better, reducing the risk of warping compared to traditional hardwood.

Bonus Floor Warming Tips!

To enhance the warmth of your winter flooring, flooring experts in Calgary will advise you to consider these
additional measures:

  • Underlayment and Insulation – Vital for vinyl planks, engineered hardwood, and laminate floors. It acts as a temperature buffer, which is particularly important for basement renovations.
  • Radiant Heat – Ideal for homes in colder regions. Using either electric coils or water-filled tubes, this system provides heat directly under the floors.
  • Area Rugs – Practical and decorative, they add an extra layer of warmth, especially in areas frequently walked on with bare feet.
