Laminate is a manufactured product that simulates the look of hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone and many other types of flooring.
In the past, laminate floors have been easy to spot, but today’s technology allows manufacturers to create realistic visuals and textures for an elegant and quality floor.
If yours is a busy household or a home with children, a durable, low maintenance product like laminate flooring is a great choice for your active lifestyle.
Because laminate flooring is stain resistant, it doesn’t need to be varnished or waxed. Laminate floors are also less likely to fade in direct sunlight, unlike the graceful aging hardwood floors.
Laminate floors are never secured directly to the subfloor, instead they are floated over the subfloor. This allows laminate flooring to be used over a wide variety of subfloors, including wooden subfloors, existing floors and even concrete slabs. Which may explain why, today, laminate flooring has become one of the best selling floor coverings in the United States.
Laminate floors offer many benefits to you and your home, including:
- Exceptional durability
- Easy to clean surface
- Superior stain resistance
- Superior fade resistance
- Install in/on all grade levels, even below grade
- Install over many different types of subfloors
- Great impact and indentation resistance
- Exceptional realism at affordable costs
- Easy to replace later on, if desired
