What is Composite Flooring?

A question we often receive here at Aimed Group is, “what is composite flooring?” While the name sounds quite technical, composite flooring is simply an engineered wood flooring, created from tiny fibres found in fast-growing Canadian trees. Why do we employ this form of material? It helps preserve our large, old forests while allowing customers the same beautiful look and feel as authentic hardwood floors.

Composite flooring has been an amazing contribution to the world of architecture. It allows us to reuse and recycle all the parts of the trees which may otherwise be thrown out. In this way, composite flooring is one of the greenest forms of flooring you can choose.

Benefits of Composite Flooring

Composite flooring’s greatest advantage is its contribution to the environment. There are many other benefits associated with this style of floor, including:

  • Cost – Due to the wide availability, and minimal restrictions on composite flooring manufacturing here in Canada, we can obtain these materials at a fraction of the price of authentic hardwood flooring.
  • Durability – Composite wood is strong due to the criss-cross layers used to create and install it. This protects your floor from cracks and breakage, making composite stronger than some hardwoods.
  • Aesthetics – Composite floor looks beautiful and can be stained, painted, and finished in various ways, making it easily customizable to your home. Use composite flooring to make a statement and add value to your home.
  • Air Quality – Like hardwood flooring, composite flooring collects less dust and debris than carpet fibres, making it a great flooring option for those with breathing conditions.
  • Easy Maintenance – Composite wood floors require much of the same treatment as hardwood floors. They are not difficult to care for, and quick cleaning can give them a bright new lustre.

Styles of Composite Flooring

If composite flooring sounds like the right option for your home, there is an assortment of styles and colours to choose from.

  • Domestic Woods – Domestic wood like maple and oak are common in Canadian composite flooring. These trees grow fast, making them an excellent choice for sustainability in Canadian forests. With no need to expend high quantities of energy transporting them, they are incredibly eco-friendly and look fantastic when installed properly.
  • Bamboo – Bamboo does not fit into the exotic wood category because it is technically categorized as grass. Bamboo is a highly sustainable crop type, although most bamboo flooring here in Canada is shipped in from tropical countries, making it slightly less eco-friendly.
  • Exotic Woods – Exotic woods like Brazilian cherry makes beautiful composite flooring. Its rich colour adds to the opulence of modern housing. However, like bamboo, Brazilian woods need to be transported from another country. Exotic woods tend to be much harder and more durable than soft domestic woods, adding to their popularity in flooring.

Composite Flooring Maintenance

Maintaining your composite wood flooring is easy. Some of the steps you can take throughout your regular cleaning routine to keep your composite flooring at its best include:

  • Sweep and Dust – Reduces the risk of sharp grains of dirt and sand from scraping your floors up as people walk across them.
  • Vacuum – Vacuuming your wood floors twice a week will further protect them from rough dirt granules.
  • Mop – When it comes time to mop up spills, or remove sticky residue from your composite wood flooring, be cautious with the amount of liquid you use. Sometimes with wood, it is better to use a cloth to spot clean or a damp (not wet) mop to gently scrub away the dirt.
  • Wood-Friendly Floor Cleaner – Some composite floor owners use multi-purpose cleaners to maintain the sheen of their floors. At Aimed Group, we still recommend using a wood-friendly cleaner when possible.

Who should choose Composite Flooring?

Composite flooring is a great alternative if hardwood flooring is not within your price range. At Aimed Group, we often receive questions regarding which floor type is better, hardwood or composite? The answer is relative! In some ways, composite flooring is best for:

  • Homeowners with modern design aesthetics
  • Loft owners
  • Minimalists
  • Homeowners on a budget

Both hardwood and composite flooring have their pros and cons, and it is a personal choice as to which you should select. Our experienced flooring experts are happy to help answer any questions you have and steer you toward the flooring that might best suit your style and home layout.
