WHY CHOOSE LAMINATE FLOORING FOR YOUR HOME?
There are several reasons why homeowners and business owners alike decide on laminate flooring products installation in Edmonton.
Some of the most common factors our clients consider include:
Of all the flooring types, laminate flooring is arguably the easiest to clean and maintain. Unlike with hardwood, waxing isn’t required for laminate flooring. Instead, all owners need to worry about is vacuuming and the occasional mopping.
We do recommend using a wood and laminate floor cleaner and a slightly damp mop; however, as laminate flooring cannot withstand pooling water, if you think your space could be prone to excessive amounts of moisture (like a bathroom, for instance), another flooring installation option would likely be a better solution.
Laminate flooring is highly resistant to dents and scratches, making it the perfect flooring style for high traffic areas, kids rooms, work spaces, and homes with pets.
Most laminate flooring brands also have an aluminum oxide finishing layer, which makes the flooring impervious to chemicals and staining, including red wine stains, coffee, and more.
Additionally, most laminate floor manufacturers offer a 10-year warranty on their products, providing buyers with peace of mind.
No other flooring type can so easily replicate other finishes the way that laminate floors can. Whether you want a laminate flooring that resembles hardwood, marble, or stone, there is an option out there for you.
Additionally, at Freedom Flooring, we stock a range of finishes at our Edmonton flooring facility.
From dark, deep mahogany to contemporary ash tones, we have a laminate flooring to bring your vision to life.
DID YOU KNOW?
Laminate flooring also provides relief from allergies? Along with the benefits listed above, laminate flooring is also ideal for families who are concerned about allergic reactions caused by dust, dirt, and pet dander. Unlike other flooring products (like carpet), laminate flooring does not hold onto allergens that commonly become trapped in carpet fibres, rugs, upholstery, and throughout your home.
If someone in your family is prone to allergies caused by house dust, we highly recommend considering laminate for your living space.

Laminate is not recommended for outdoor use or bathrooms, and depending on your lifestyle and your home, kitchens. This is because laminate does not hold up well to extended exposure of moisture. Prolonged exposure to moisture will cause your laminate flooring to warp or swell. Freedom Flooring has experience with special installation techniques that may make it suitable for use in your bathroom. Ask our team if this option will work for you.
If you’re planning on using laminate in your basement, it is important to install a moisture barrier first. This prevents the moisture your concrete underground floor may be holding from being transmitted into your laminate flooring.
Laminate flooring is often used on stairs, and it holds up well while looking great! Laminate flooring is traditionally designed to be installed in large spaces so the installation process on a staircase will be slightly different.
In most cases, laminate flooring can be used with underfloor heating with no problems. However, it can depend on the flooring manufacturer. Our team at Freedom Flooring will be able to tell you if your specific laminate flooring is compatible with underfloor heating.
