How to Choose the Perfect Flooring for Your Lake House

AMAZON Hardwood Center Inc. HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT Flooring for Your Lake House A lake house is the source of many good things, including barbecues, rafting, campfires, boat rides, kayaking, tubing, and water skiing, However, choosing the right flooring material can be a challenge, considering its exposure to moisture and humidity due to its proximity to the lake. Here is a list of the best flooring materials for these environmental conditions. Engineered Hardwood Compared to solid wood, engineered wood doesn't contract or expand with heat and moisture changes. This makes it less susceptible to cracking, warping, or buckling. The reason behind this stability is its unique construction - layers of plywood, joined together with solid wood. However, low-quality engineered flooring may require a vapour barrier between the subfloor and flooring, and is not very effective against moisture and humidity. 1 Laminate Hardwood The back layer of laminate boards functions as a moisture barrier that protects the core from water damage. This allows laminate flooring to serve moderately well In coastal areas, where humldity Is typlcally high. Hardwood, on the other hand, is vulnerable to moisture and Isn't suitable in a moist environment. Ceramic or Stone Tile Tile floors are attractive, easy to clean, and virtually waterproof. They're also available in a wide range of textures and colours, and impart a warm, old-world charm to your lakeside property. Tiles are more durable than nearly any other finished flooring and can be used practically anywhere, including entryways, kitchens, and patios. Since tile floors can be quite hard underfoot, consider placing rugs down on them.
