Many people like the look of hardwood flooring, but don’t want the expense that comes with it. We can give your home or office that hardwood look at a fraction of the cost by installing laminate flooring. Laminate flooring can be installed with the same color, texture and appeal of hardwood and we have numerous samples to show you for your home or office setting.
Laminate can go in every room although it is usually best to not install it in the bathroom as it can be damaged by water. Having your laminate installed by a professional will save you time and will help ensure that your warranty is valid throughout the years it is available. We have many types of laminate that include traditional nail down laminate as well as newer laminate that locks together easily. They all have that same great hardwood appearance and will last for years to come.
What Is Laminate?
Laminate is made from several materials including melamine, core board and melamine backing. Another layer is a photo of sorts that allows the laminate to look like the same type of wood that it is representing. This is how you get the real look of wood from a synthetic material. Laminate will not fade and will not hold in moisture, mildew or mold and it is very resistant to staining.
Laminate cannot be sanded or refinished but it is easy to replace pieces if any become damaged. It should be applied over a layer of underlayment, a cushioning material, to prevent it from sounding hollow when people walk on it and so it will be cushioned. Most warranties require underlayment to be installed under the laminate or the warranty will be voided.
