Kirby’s Complete Flooring Centre is a family owned business providing quality workmanship and guaranteed installations for more than 35 years. At Kirby’s they pride themselves on educating their customers so that they can make the best informed choices for their home. Many elements need to be considered when selecting flooring: for example, does the home have climate control? Is the area where the flooring is going a high traffic area? Are there pets in the home, how big and what are their habits like? Are there children in the home, is it a busy household etc.
Add style, value and warmth to your home or business with Kirby’s wide selection of options:
Hardwood can still be found in homes over 100 years old. Its character and colour have changed over the years, but the wood still remains. When thinking about hardwood the new trends are matt finishes with wire brushed textures to create floors that are durable and that can be lived on. Engineered floors bring stability to the hardwood in a fluctuating climate making it possible to have very wide boards which are all the rage these days and can be installed in basements and below grade.
Laminate has grown in popularity over the last couple decades for good reason. It’s perfect for high traffic areas, it’s easy to clean and great for people with children and pets because of its durability. Laminate comes in a variety of colours and patterns but is mostly made to resemble wood or ceramic flooring. Some laminates are now even waterproof. Some of the higher end laminates are hard to distinguish from real hardwood.
Luxury Vinyl Plank and tile has definitely become a very popular item and no wonder with its waterproof nature, warmth and realistic textures and colours. It’s come a long way and the products coming on the market now have an SPC or rigid core making the click systems much more durable and the overall product more stable in varying climates.
Carpet has seen some of the most revolutionary technology as durable stain proof fibers are now being produced with silky soft textures never seen before in history. Spectacular patterns, loops and cut piles in very popular grey and neutral tones.
Certain carpets have such low VOC’s that they are certified free from harmful substances. Carpet has an unbeatable feel that is warm, soft and inviting under your feet all through the year.
Tile is now mostly made of porcelain which is dense and water resistant perfect for wet areas such as bathrooms, front entrances and kitchens. No need to feel the cold with in floor heating which will even cut down on the need to crank the thermostat on those cold winter nights. Colours and textures are varied with rustic wood trends, cement finishes and grey tones still quite popular.
