Style for any budget
Laminate is a popular choice for floors due to its dent and scratch resistance, which is much higher than hardwood. It is found in most Calgary homes, because it excels in high-traffic areas and is very easy to clean and maintain.
There is an almost infinite variety of designs and styles available, which makes it easy to find one that suits your décor. It is also great for budget-conscious consumers, as it relatively inexpensive and quick and easy to install. The main drawback, as opposed to more upscale flooring products like hardwood and tile, is that it does not receive the same level of promotion during home sales.
