WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF LAMINATE FLOORING. THERE ARE MANY GOOD REASONS WHY LAMINATE FLOORS ARE A POPULAR CHOICE IN TODAY’S HOMES AND MULTI-FAMILY SPACES.
Laminate is a manufactured product that simulates the look of hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone and many natural styles of flooring. You can choose from natural colors and dark wood grains, as well as warm or cool color tones to compliment any room décor in your home. Laminate floors typically are easy to spot, but today’s technology has allowed manufacturers to create more realistic patterns and textures, for a more elegant, natural look. Laminate is great for those clients who want the look and feel of real hardwood or stone, but without the cost or maintenance that can be associated with natural products. It is particularly popular among buyers who are looking for a beautiful, durable, yet cost-effective flooring solution.
In addition, laminate floors function well in any space with their many different styles and colors. Many hardwood designs are now offering a “Single Plank” look in laminate, including rare, exotic wood species. Laminate stone and tile patterns will give you the look of tile, but without the concerns of grout cleaning or cracking tile and will be much warmer and comfortable. A durable, low maintenance product like laminate flooring is a great choice for your active lifestyle.
Laminate flooring does not need to be varnished or waxed. They are also less likely to fade in direct sunlight, unlike the graceful aging hardwood floors. Americans are becoming more familiar with laminate flooring because they have been aware of the durability of laminate countertops for years. By using the countertop technology and adding considerably more resin to the wear layer, some laminate floor manufacturers boast that their laminate floors are now 10 to 20 times harder than laminate countertops. This resin filled wear layer is so dense, it becomes extremely difficult to stain or scratch. Laminate floors are never secured directly to the sub floor, instead they are floated over the sub floor. This allows laminate flooring to be used over a wide variety of substrate, including wooden subfloors, existing resilient floors and even concrete slabs. This explains why laminate flooring has become one of the bestselling floor coverings in the United States.
