Laminate flooring


Take a closer look at laminate flooring

The laminate flooring of today is a lot different than what you may remember from decades ago.
Technological advancements enable vibrant and sharp images created with high-definition photography, better seaming, embossing, and micro beveling. The result is flooring with hundreds of images of domestic and exotic hardwood species, stone looks, raised grains, textures, and veining variations. If you haven't looked at it recently, you won't believe your eyes when you come into our laminate flooring store.

So durable, it even stands up to pets

Laminate flooring is considered to be one of the most kid-and-pet-friendly floorings around. It comes with four thick layers, one of them being a top, transparent, aluminum oxide coating that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs and resists stains and fading. As for thickness, a more robust surface has increased durability, hides subfloor imperfections better, is quieter, and has a more authentic feeling underfoot.

Easy to clean and install

All laminate needs are regular sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Waxy, shine-promoting cleaners will do the opposite, dull the floor because it can damage the finish. If you feel you need more shine, seek the advice of a laminate flooring professional.
The installation's also fast and straightforward, especially when it's a floating floor. With this technique, the pieces click, then mat and hover over the subfloor without nails or glue. Of course, subfloors need to be clean, dry, and level.

Laminate is affordable and stylish

These days, laminate floors are showing up in every room in the house, some of them being high-end homes where once nothing but genuine wood or stone would ever be considered. Unfortunately, the images are so realistic sometimes; even flooring experts can't tell the difference. You'll know, though, because you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for authentic wood or stone.
