What is Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring may not be everyone’s favorite flooring option, but it definitely is a great alternative to real hardwood flooring. Laminate is not considered the classist of flooring options, but due to new technology that is changing. New printing techniques have made laminate look more like hardwood than ever. At Burlington Carpet One Floor & Home we provide our customers with the best selection of flooring, and laminate is no exception.
Benefits of Laminate Flooring
There are many benefits to having laminate flooring installed in your home. The first is pretty obvious; laminate is more affordable than real hardwood. So you’ll be saving money while still investing is beautiful flooring. Laminate installs quick and easy and are available in click-lock or fold-lock options. They are also incredibly easy to clean, using a vacuum or broom, or even a slightly dampened mop. No floor cleaners or waxing is needed.
Installing Laminate Flooring
You can install laminate floors in semi-moist rooms like powder rooms or kitchens. Unlike hardwood, laminate is almost impervious to dents and scratches. The wear layer protects the photographic layer, and even resists stains. Most laminate installations come with an underlayment that is more forgiving when walked upon, giving the flooring a very slight springy feeling. As mentioned before, the image layer of laminate gives it the ability to look exactly like a hardwood floor.
