Laminate flooring offers the appearance of hardwood flooring without the drawbacks. Hardwood flooring is a classic flooring choice that adds value to your property, but it does not fare well in humid climates. With our Floridian climate, hardwood flooring can buckle and warp in humid conditions. If you’re looking for the appearance of natural wood floors without worrying about the potential damage, check out laminate flooring.
Laminate flooring is comprised of multiple layers of composite wood fused together. Each layer serves its own function in creating a durable and realistic plank. The core and base layers are made from materials including fiberboard that gives the plank some protection against moisture and stability. The decorative layer gives the plank the realistic look of hardwood by using a high-definition image of real natural wood. The finish layer protects the plank from everyday wear and tear like scratches and dents even better than many hardwood brands.
Laminate flooring is mostly installed using the click-lock method. This method has the planks being placed over the subfloor like a puzzle. This is also known as a floating floor. Floating floors require room to naturally expand and contract so they are not recommended to be placed under cabinetry, as this can cause difficulty when removing or replacing broken planks.
Laminate floors can be installed practically anywhere in your home, including rooms that hardwood flooring traditionally cannot. This includes kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. Our team of installers can install new floors into residential, commercial, and vacation properties.
Laminate flooring is incredibly easy and fast to install, so you can enjoy your new floors in no time. Our installation experts will help guide you through the process while paying close attention to detail.
