Laminate Before It’s Too Late

We all know how harsh Edmonton winters can be, but nothing compares to the winter of 2021. The extreme fluctuation of temperatures left Edmontonians scrambling to keep up with snow and ice, as well as mud and grime. Our flooring took the brunt of it. We never knew what to expect and we were always on the lookout for snowstorms, rainstorms and dangerous black ice on the roads. Every day was an adventure we had to embark on, and the elements certainly didn’t make it easy to keep our homes clean and our floors safe! If you’ve also been a victim (a little dramatic but ever so true) of Edmonton’s cruel weather, and you’re left worrying about what to do with your damaged flooring, we have the solution for you below.

Ready, Set, Laminate! 

Laminate flooring is the perfect solution! It is a durable, scratch-resistant AND budget-friendly surface. Say goodbye to your days of hopping-on-one-foot trying to get your shoes off before entering the house! Laminate flooring is a great affordable option for your home and offers plenty of benefits for you to enjoy. You can step on it with your snow-covered or even wet boots and not worry about instant damage. A simple mop or broom will clean your laminate floor right away. The best part about laminate flooring is that floor waxing is not necessary at all. The flooring is covered with a protective layer, which makes it resistant to stains as well as scratches and dents.

Don’t Worry About Cha-Ching!  

Money plays a significant factor when it comes to renovating your floors or even sprucing up the house a bit. Most hardwood floors are expensive, especially if you’re refurbishing the entire house. If you want the look of hardwood floors without the exuberant expense, fear of damage and lengthy installation, laminate flooring is the answer! Ashley Fine Floors have several wood-like options for you to choose from. The Dovedale comes in a variety of colours and resembles wooden floors very well. The Epik and Riviera are also other options for wood-like flooring. Laminate your home now, and don’t worry about cha-ching!

It’s Never Too Late To Laminate

Choose laminate flooring before next winter! It’s an easy-peasy job with minimal to no help required! Laminate flooring is versatile and can be installed on almost all subfloors. Since the boards are designed to interlock with each other, you do not need to spend money on glue, staples or nails for installation. You can even do the job yourself without the need for a handyman. Turn your home into a fun DIY project and enjoy crisp-looking floors, ready for next winter’s unexpected mood swings.
