In boards or tiles, with floating or glue-down installation, vinyl is an excellent option for your flooring. Affordable and water-resistant, the latest generations of vinyl floors are fast and easy to install for an extremely attractive end result.
Thanks to the “click” installation system, vinyl boards are particularly simple to use and let you avoid the use of glue and other products when installing the floor.
Vinyl flooring lets you reproduce almost any surface, any finish, and any colour. Technological advances perfectly imitate the appearance and texture of wood, stone, or slate floors.
With so many advantages, vinyl is a flooring option that will be suitable for a large number of projects.
Laminate and floating: two words to describe the same floor!
You should know that the term “floating” comes from the installation process, which involves connecting the floors to each other with a click: there’s no need to attach it to the ground! This type of flooring is well-known by the term “floating floor.”
With their great ease of installation and their varied looks, floating floors offer many advantages. Whether it’s for a condo, an office, a basement, or an entire house, laminate (or floating) floors are an excellent solution for tighter budgets.
Primarily composed of HDF (High-Density Fibreboard), this type of flooring offers high density and excellent resistance.
The wide variety of colours and textures of laminate floors will suit your needs.
Which to choose?
In a house, the subfloor will determine the type of floor to be installed (hardwood, engineered wood, vinyl, or floating). For condos, where there are often concrete bases, there are soundproofing rules to be followed, which makes the choice of materials less flexible. As for the basement, where the humidity is greatest, vinyl and laminate (floating) floors are smarter choices.
Selecting a vinyl or laminate floor remains the ideal option for more limited budgets. Floating floors must be used with a suitable membrane. Very easy to install, they require little maintenance. Vinyl can be laid directly on concrete. This is the best option for humid rooms. In case of water infiltration, simply lift up the vinyl, let the surface dry, and lay the vinyl back down.
