Vancouver Hardwood Flooring

Natural Hardwood Flooring is the most widely used and also imitated type of flooring in Canada. The beauty of hardwood is unparalleled and it is the look we’re after in the flooring industry when we start manufacturing alternative options such as Laminate, Luxury vinyl, and wood-like porcelain planks.

Solid Hardwood Flooring

Milled from a single piece of wood, solid hardwood flooring is a natural product that reacts to fluctuations in temperature and moisture by expansion and contraction. Therefore, we recommend that solid hardwood is only used in areas with little moisture to reduce the risk of the floor suffering from these conditions. For this reason, solid hardwood isn’t advised for basements, given the high moisture levels below grade. The method of installing solid hardwood is by nailing it to plywood subfloors. Solid hardwood comes in various widths, but it is always 3/4″ thick and can be typically sanded up to three times based on industry standards. Sanding and refinishing hardwood floors is a technical and time-consuming procedure where you’d have to open up the wood grains properly. With the interior design trends moving towards wider planks and the manufacturers improving their anti-scratch finishes, this old-school practice is slowly getting phased out with its limitations, especially on the West Coast.

Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered hardwood is constructed from a solid wood top layer attached to a core of several wood layers (or plies), which have been stacked and glued together under pressure. Engineered hardwood is designed to be much more stable regarding expansions and contractions due to temperature and humidity changes over time. It’s worth mentioning that the thickness of the top wear layer in engineered hardwood is not the only indication of quality. Factors such as the type and strength of the finish, anti-scratch coating, or engineered core construction can easily be overlooked. Engineered hardwood can still be stapled on the plywood subfloor, similar to solid hardwood if needed. However, what makes them unique is the fact that they can also be glued or floated on concrete subfloors. This allows the ability to use hardwood flooring in condos, basements, or applications that we traditionally are not allowed to.

For most of us in the flooring industry, hardwood flooring projects are the ones we’re most proud of and the ones we’re most looking forward to being a part of. Visit our North Vancouver hardwood flooring showroom today.

Soheil and his team exceeded our expectations and stayed under our budget for our floor renovation project. I’m so glad that I chose his color recommendation, a light color made-in-Italy hardwood floor that made our condo unit bright, modern, and upscale. His team worked day and night to finish the project on schedule and gave us weekly updates through out the whole process. They cleaned up everything and I didn’t even have to move my furniture . I would recommend Soheil to everyone for bathroom and flooring needs. A+++

Simply excellent! Our flooring renovation experience with Canadian Home Style was second-to-none. Soheil made the process effortless, addressing all our concerns throughout the process and being extremely generous with his time. The result is a beautiful engineered hardwood floor, for which Adam deserves a special mention for his expert installation and attention to detail. I can't imagine the experience gets any better. Go in and talk to the team at Canadian Home Style about your project - We're certainly glad we did.

My wife and I recently had our floors done by Soheil Jalali and his team at Canadian Home Style. Cannot say enough good things about this business and their team. We had just moved to the North Shore and ended up getting about 5 or 6 quotes from different contractors in the Lower Mainland. Their quote was the most competitive on both the flooring and the labour/install so, combined with the excellent reviews online, we decided to use them and are extremely happy we did! Soheil was phenomenal to deal with right from the first time we set foot in the showroom. Extremely knowledgeable, helpful and zero pressure. It ended up taking us close to 2 months to actually pick a product/floor (due largely to our indecisiveness and busy schedules) but they were incredibly patient and went well out of their way to make sure we got the perfect product and colour for our project. Even rush ordered us new samples that we had seen on the website so we could see them and compare in our space. They carry an excellent range of mid to high-end flooring options at competitive prices. We ended up going with Mercier red oak and we love it thus far. The install was incredibly smooth and Adam did a terrific job. Very thorough and meticulous about the work but still managed to finish a day earlier than planned. The workmanship on the stairs and the custom noseings were excellent. They even did some extra work levelling and re-screwing our subfloor, which removed a bunch of squeaks. Soheil was in touch almost every day on the project to provide updates, send pictures and answer any questions, etc., which was extremely helpful given that we were out of town. Place was spotless when we got back as well. We are still planning to do the downstairs and will definitely be working with these guys again. I would highly recommend using Canadian Home Style!

We could not be happier with the job Soheil and his team did on our floors. They replaced all the flooring in our condo with a beautiful engineered hardwood. Soheil was a total pleasure to work with from the beginning. He is honest and open and willing to talk through any concerns you might have. He is generous with his time and expert opinion. The crew arrived when they said they would and they completed the job on time. We are beyond thrilled with the outcome. I highly recommend these guys and will for sure use them again for future renovations. Thank you Soheil!

We wanted to replace our basement flooring but could not find anyone with whom we felt comfortable. The moment we walked into Canadian Home Style we knew we had come to the right place. A very knowledgeable SOHEIL walked us through the various options for laminate flooring. There wasn’t any pressure to make the purchase and he was more than willing to allow us the time to make our decision. All appointments from the measuring to junk removal were exactly as planned. The estimate was accurate with no hidden surprises. We had an issue with the previous carpet installer securing metal smooth edge with nails. Of great concern as we have hot water in- floor heating. A wonderful Canadian Home Style installer (Sam) was able to remove the smooth edge without any damage to the heating system. He also was able to remove tiles from this floor. The installation went perfectly. Sam installed the flooring quickly and did a wonderful job placing the laminate flooring around a circular fire place hearth. Sam also did a great job installing the door and floor mouldings. Soheil was always available to answer our questions and was very accommodating. A great experience! We will be back for some carpet installation soon…..
