When you are looking for a great floor covering that has all the benefits you want and need, laminate floors
are a great choice. You’ll get a beautiful appearance and extras that make it a wonderful material in nearly any room, no matter what the need.
This material also offers a formidable resistance against high traffic levels, pets, children, and other situations that cause floor coverings to quickly break down. It’s easy to care for and you’ll find the average 20-year lifespan is perfect in nearly every application throughout your home.
If you’re looking for an excellent wood or stone look floor covering for your home, laminate can meet the need in a variety of spaces. With an excellent variety of appearances in these two looks, you're sure to find a match, no matter your décor.
Constructed of a variety of layers, it provides great stability and protection. But for even more resistance to daily wear and some level of abuse, this material also has a topcoat that protects against stains, scratches, scuffs, and more, so your floors look newer longer.
Some homeowners prefer an underlayment to be installed beneath laminate flooring, to prevent the “clicking” sound that often accompanies footfalls. But it’s also resistant to mold and mildew growth as well. This underlayment helps absorb structural irregularities, offers a bit of resilience and is often also warmer to the touch, even on chilly nights.
When it’s time to install laminate, be sure to talk with associates about the benefits of a professional laminate flooring installation. While often touted as an easy DIY installation, you’ll be much better off leaving the job to professionals who have all the experience and special tools necessary for a truly quick and easy installation.
