Why Choose Laminate Flooring

 

You've got growing kids, friends you don't see enough, a couple of loving pound puppies, and a day job that never ends—the last thing you want to add to your plate is a costly, high-maintenance floor. The occasional mess that comes with a busy lifestyle won't stand a chance against laminate floors, which offer easy resilience you won't have to worry about. Let today's technology help you out while also giving you a look you absolutely love! 

 

Wood-look Laminate Flooring

 

You're not limited to solid hardwood if you're searching for a stunning wood look to warm up your space. Wood-look laminate floors add character without compromising durability, all at an affordable price. Simply pick the color, undertone, and texture that suits your style and you're set!

 

What is laminate flooring?

 

If you're interested in a smart, affordable alternative to tile, stone, or hardwood flooring, laminate flooring deserves your attention. This man-made material can fool many at first glance thanks to the well-engineered multi-layer construction. Between a sturdy core layer, a high-definition photo layer, and a protective top layer, laminate floors have durability literally built in. You can even find waterproof variations on the market, which include resins in the core layer to resist liquid. This option would be perfectly suited for your home if muddy paw prints, wet towels, and constant spills are regular occurrences.

 

Laminate Flooring Appearance

 

Laminate flooring has the bases covered when it comes to design options. Finding the perfect match for your home's unique decor won't be a problem. Wood-look laminate mimics authentic hardwood like hickory, walnut, maple, birch, and other popular species down to the texture and grain detail. The realistic look and impressive resilience make laminate flooring an incredibly popular choice for all types of homeowners, no matter what stage in life.

 

Advantages and Disadvantages of Laminate Flooring

 

If you've looked at homes on the market lately, you've noticed the prevalence of laminate floors. They're popular because they have a ton of advantages, like: 

 

There are a few considerations to keep in mind, such as: 

 

Laminate Flooring Durability

 

Are you worried that laminate flooring won't be able to withstand the amount of toy monster truck races, dog zoomies, and spilled juice your home sees on a daily basis? Then you'll be happy to learn that the multi-layered construction of laminate flooring has you covered. Long-term durability is a given with laminate's compressed wood base and protective top layer, keeping scratches, scuffs, and Fluffy's occasional claw marks at bay. 

 

Laminate Flooring Lifespan and Installation

 

How long your laminate floors will serve your home is a big factor when you're making a final decision. The good news is that under the right conditions, you can expect many worry-free years with the perfect laminate flooring underfoot. These conditions include: 

 

 

One of the biggest influences on the longevity of this significant investment is how it's installed. This is no time to skimp. Working with a pro Flooring America installer can make all the difference. Not only will an experienced professional have all the necessary tools but you'll also avoid the headache of voiding a warranty from a missed step.

 

Maintaining Laminate Floors

 

Make life even easier for you and your family with laminate flooring. It's a breeze to maintain, requiring little more than regular sweeping with a broom or dry mop —in fact, you could probably hand this off to your kids at chore time! Deeper cleaning on occasion doesn't hurt, but be sure to follow the care instructions provided by the manufacturer. Though laminate is water resistant, it's still important to clean up any spills or accidents to avoid reducing your floor's lifespan.
