Four advantages of laminate flooring

Four advantages of laminate flooring

Laminate floors have long been considered an attractive alternative to genuine wood. However, it's constantly evolving with digital photography, improved seaming, and embossing.

Here are four reasons why laminate flooring might be for you.

Laminate floors are stylish

Laminate flooring has the look and feel of a genuine hard surface. It is cut into planks to mimic hardwood floorboards and have depth and dimension.

It comes in any color, including the trending gray and high variation. Some to check out are Cutter Plank by Quick Step or Brunswick Collection by Palmetto Road.

Textures: the finishing touch on laminate wood flooring

Manufacturers now do machinery for the laminate wood flooring, which is usually done by hand for genuine hardwood. Embossing creates brushed hand-scraped, distressed, or embossed-in-register (EIR) textures.

With EIR, indentations are made to exactly match the grains in the image.

Durable enough for kids and pets

Laminate floors have a top strong wear layer that protects them from scratches, scuffs, dents, stains, and sun fading. The good news is that you can replace any damaged plank instead of the entire floor.

Depending on quality, it can last up to 25 years. In addition, most manufacturers have an AC (Abrasion Criteria) rating to explain the product's durability.

Low maintenance

Laminate flooring requires only regular sweeping and periodic mopping.

Easy installation

Laminate is installed via the floating floor technique. Here, the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor without adhesives or nails.

This is a fast and uncomplicated installation, often preferred by installers. For you, that translates to a less expensive procedure.
