Ever since we started we have strived to provide the best options in flooring. Laminate floors are no exception to the style options and affordability they provide.
A laminate floor can bring life to any room!
What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate installs fast and easy. Fast: you can install 300 square feet in one weekend. Older types of laminate flooring required you to glue pieces to each other. Today’s types of laminate flooring have a click/lock or fold/lock design that allows planks to fit together like puzzle pieces. Easy: since the planks are constructed of soft particleboard, they can be cut with a hand saw or even a utility knife.
Easy to clean. Just use a vacuum or broom. Mop with a slightly damp mop or better yet, laminate floor cleaner. No floor waxing is ever necessary.
Laminate flooring can be installed in semi-moist areas like powder rooms, kitchens, and other places where you encounter topical moisture. As long as the boards are tight against each other, leaving no avenue for moisture, laminate can resist some water.
Unlike wood, which can dent, laminate flooring is almost impervious to dents and scratches. Laminate flooring has a “wear layer” that protects the photographic layer underneath. Some manufacturers, DuPont in particular, give very generous 10+ year warranties on the wear layer. Laminate flooring’s tough surface resists stains. And if you do get a stain, it is easy to clean off.
Laminate Style and Function
- Functionality While laminate can feel hard under foot without an underlayment, most installations do include underlayment. This gives the flooring a slightly springy feeling, making it easier to stand on for long periods, such as when standing at a stove or sink.
- Appearance Laminate flooring faithfully reproduces the look of wood, stone, and other natural materials. Unlike real hardwood, which comes with many imperfect pieces that need to be discarded or re-engineered, there are no defects in laminate flooring. Every board is of consistent quality and appearance.
Benefits of Laminate Flooring
- Construction Where will your new flooring go? Solid hardwood flooring should only be installed on grade and above, while engineered hardwood works on any level.
- Species Wood species vary in hardness and light sensitivity, so keep foot traffic, furniture, and light exposure in mind when choosing a species.
- Class Going for a natural look, or want something more uniform? A higher hardwood class will have fewer natural variations, knots, and mineral marks.
Solid Hardwood Maintenance
- Selection Our selection of laminate flooring, available in hardwood and stone looks, adds sophisticated style to your home for less. Laminate wood flooring is easy to install, easy to clean, and easy to maintain, making it a great choice for the way you live—and for your budget.
- Environmentally Friendly Even better, laminate is an environmentally friendly flooring option, often made with recycled materials and requiring no harvesting of rare trees. Laminate floors are exceptionally durable and resistant to both staining and fading, providing worry-free assurance that the floor you love won’t lose its looks.
Serious Durability: Direct pressure laminate surfaces are virtually immune to spills, scuffs, stains, and fading.
Easy Renovation: Install laminate floors over dry concrete, wooden subfloors, and many floor types. Its low clearance space height helps in older homes with floor thickness issues.
Any Look for Less : Our laminate flooring options realistically emulate the look and feel of hardwood at a lower price point.
