flooring materials that are suitable by region/season/temps


When I knocked off renovation work in October, the exterior caulking & sealing was done, as well as the floor was repaired where needed. I'm happy to report that no leaks were found throughout the winter snow, rain, and extremely cold temps this winter down to -15F (yippee!). Now I'm ready to lay finish flooring.

I had intended to lay carpet squares/puzzle tiles with the idea that they are easy on the feet, insulating, and can be removed for cleaning and subfloor inspection. But I'm still willing to consider alternatives.

After looking through a number of threads about vinyl and laminate flooring, it seems that separations/cracks between planks occur frequently in regions where winter is more severe, and that some types or brands may be more or less resistant to those issues. Is there any consensus about which type or brand is suitable for a given climate?
