Laminate Flooring Guide
When laminate was first introduced; there was no mistaking it for hardwood. Although there were wood looks available, at the time technology was not advanced enough to replicate the detail of hardwood. Fast forward to today, laminate is considered a durable alternative to hardwood flooring. New technology has made it possible for laminate to replicate stunning wood look visuals.
There are several benefits to installing laminate in your home, and the experts at McLeod Carpet One Floor & Home in Bloomfield Hills, MI, are here to help you find the best laminate floor for your home.
Laminate vs Hardwood
Laminate flooring is offered in planks that are specially made to look like wood. New technology has made these planks look authentic, although they do not provide the same added value, they do deliver on style.
Laminate flooring is durable and great for areas with a lot of foot traffic. It is constructed of multiple layers that are supportive, much like an engineered hardwood floor. No longer worry about chips or cracks with laminate, and they will not warp due to moisture. Although laminate is not waterproof, it is more resistant to water than hardwood.
Where can Laminate be Installed?
Due to the multilayer construction of laminate, you can install the planks in more areas than you could with hardwood. You can install it on, below, and above grade. That means you can have wood look floors in your basement, living room, or bedroom.
Laminate flooring features glue-less installation. The planks fit perfectly together and can float over your subfloor without any adhesive. You can still choose a glue-down option for a more permanent installation. Like any other floor, make sure your sub floor is clean and dry.
