Laminate is a layered, manmade floor covering. The layer just below the surface (known as the printed layer) can be adjusted to imitate any number of flooring types, such as natural stone. More often than not, however, laminate is used as a stand-in for hardwood.
One of the best benefits that you get when you purchase a laminate floor is knowing that it is effortless. This goes for both the installation and the maintenance. There are other reasons that more homeowners are beginning to look at laminate as a good alternative to traditional hardwood floors. Some of the top reasons that our customers choose laminate are:
- More affordable prices. There is a significant difference between the prices of laminate and hardwood. Although laminate may not last as many decades as a good hardwood floor, it has been known to last for a decade or more with proper care. There is usually no need for expensive subfloor removal, because laminate is a floating floor. This means that it can be installed over any type of subfloor or existing floor. Installation prices are also generally lower because this floor covering uses a simple tongue and groove click-lock system. Some homeowners even choose to install laminate themselves.
- Easy cleaning. There isn’t much that you need to do to keep your laminate floors looking great. We recommend routine sweeping to keep the surface clear of rough dirt and other particles. These particles can scratch the wear layer of your laminate over time, so it is important to placemats by the entrances of the home and to sweep. A dust mop is another good choice. If you encounter a sticky mess or a spilled liquid, use a soft, dampened cloth to pick it up. Never use a soaked mop or harsh cleaners, as these can damage your floors.
- Style choices. Laminate makes it easy to get a look that you love for less. The printed layer can be changed to look like almost any other floor covering. The most popular styles are hardwood and natural stone. There are a number of colors and styles to choose from. This makes it easy to design a new room or complement an existing decor. If you are unable to decide, you can meet with a design adviser for additional help.
