The Beauty of Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring can be crafted to perfectly replicate the aesthetics and even texture of any floor type, whether that be hardwood, stone, tile or even concrete (a rising trend, by the way).
So Why Not Just Choose Those?
Laminate flooring is a unique choice that offers the perfect balance between price and durability – it often beats its conventional counterparts in one or both! The secret is in the melamine surface, a resin that creates a barrier against wear along the surface. Laminate flooring also benefits from the durability of particle boards or medium-density fiberboard.
Half the work of installing your new flooring is, of course, removing your old flooring. But imagine if that entire process could be removed. In fact, many types of laminate flooring can often be installed right over your existing floors. Of course, this depends on the specific line of laminate that you purchase, along with what’s already there and the kind of shape it’s in. That’s where the advice of a flooring expert – like one of our team members – comes in.
Low Maintenance & Long Life
Laminate is one of the easiest flooring types to maintain. Simply sweep it like you would any hard surface flooring or even vacuum it as you would any carpet. Once a month, you may want to spray a floor cleaner (but be sure that it’s safe for laminate), then wipe it with a microfiber cloth just as if you were mopping your floor. Do these simple steps, and your floor will last a lifetime.
