5050 Dufferin St #101, North York, ON M3H 5T5A laminate floor is a composite floor with either a chipboard or HDF core, bonded to a film of wood-effect veneer and covered with a laminated surface. Although it may look like wood veneer flooring, it's not. Most laminate floors feature a photographic representation of wood grain and, unlike wood veneers, laminates cannot be sanded or refurbished once it starts to show wear.
Just like bamboo, cork is also an eco friendly and durable flooring option. It is basically created from the cork oak tree's bark. Although quite soft, cork is extremely durable. It can perfectly be installed on floors that receive lots of foot or standing traffic. It is also great for rooms or places where children play because it is softer and safer than solid hardwood. Also, cork is a good insulator. It is a perfect choice for homeowners who usually walk barefooted around the home. Cork is available in different colours.
Now that you have everything you need, you are ready to begin. The first thing you need to do is remove everything from the room. If you are going over vinyl or linoleum you do not need to remove it, Pergo is only 9mm thick so you can easily go right over it. If you had carpet you will need to remove it and all the carpet tacks. Then sweep the floor and make sure all debris is removed. Make sure that you remove all base boards and door casing, this will allow you to make less cuts.
When knowing where you would want to setup hardwood flooring first you need to consider which room will gain from it. Basically any room that does not have a complete bath could have wood flooring installed, most essentially bedrooms, kitchens as well as family rooms. When you choose to setup hardwood flooring below grade, like in your basement, make sure to use engineered wood.
