Information on an affordable flooring option for your lifestyle.
If you appreciate the look of wood floors but are unsure of the cost, consider laminate flooring. Laminate flooring gained popularity in the United States in the late 1990s, and the quality, appearance, and cost have only improved. Homeowners are discovering that they can create the look of fine, hardwood floors without the expensive materials or the time-consuming installation. Just some of the many benefits of laminate flooring include:
- Low Cost. This is usually the biggest factor when thinking about home improvement. When it comes to price, laminate flooring is hard to beat. You can choose from a variety of colors, textures, and styles at a fraction of the cost of hardwood floors. Plus, laminate flooring is easy to install. Plus, where hardwood flooring installation requires sanding, nailing, and inspecting the individual boards for defects, laminate flooring snaps easily into place without nails or glue.
- Durable and Stain Resistant. Laminate flooring is made up of layers. The top layer is a highly durable "wear" layer, which is easy to clean and fade-resistant. The design layer is underneath the wear layer, giving you the real wood grain look or a variety of other designs. Below the design layer you will find the core and stabilizing layers, which can be installed directly on to your sub floor. Laminate is not only stain resistant, but it resists penetration by chemicals, solvents, and liquids.
- Environmentally Friendly. Many laminate flooring manufacturers reuse byproducts from the manufacturing process, creating less waste. Additionally, there are no harmful chemicals or dust vapors in the installation process. Finally, laminate flooring can be easily cleaned and won't trap dust and allergens the way carpet can - ensuring that the air quality in your home is as dust-free as possible.
