Smile Laminated Flooring in Winter

Hi all: Just purchased a cottage in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada. The cottage has laminated flooring throughout. The building is on blocks, with a plywood skirt around it. The winters can get down to about -40F. The floor has vapor retardant foamlike material. There is no other insulation beneath the floor.

Now the question is, do I need to keep any heat in the cottage during the winter. If yes what is the lowest temperature that it should be set at

Thank you

Do you still have the specification paperwork the came with your flooring?

Read the part about maintaining constant temperature and humidity levels year around, or expect problems.

Floor covering products tend to perform best if temperature and humidity are maintained year round at constant levels. Temperature and humidity should be at occupancy levels for best performance.
