Laminate Flooring For Your Home

Laminate Flooring Benefits

Laminate flooring is a great choice for consumers looking for a balance of style, practicality, and affordability. It's a versatile material that comes in a wide variety of different colors and patterns to fit any decor. Laminate can also be made to look like a range of different traditional surfaces from marble to hardwood. Another advantage of laminate flooring is that it's more durable and easy to maintain compared to the flooring types it's modeled after. For example, laminate is much more moisture and scratch resistant than hardwood and is consequently more practical in humid areas or places prone to extreme weather. Finally, since laminate is synthetic, it's also significantly less expensive than traditional, naturally occurring flooring materials.

How are laminate floors installed?

Laminate floors are made up of planks that easily snap together, and an entire room can be fitted with laminate in less than a day. While starting with a level subfloor is still important, laminate is more "forgiving" when it comes to slight bumps and imperfections. It's also a "floating" type of flooring; laminate doesn't have to be directly bonded to the floor with glue or other adhesive. If your existing flooring is level enough and tightly bonded to the subfloor, laminate can be layered overtop of it without any need for a removal step.

Why hire a professional for laminate floor installation in your home or business?

It is always best to call in the experts, especially when it comes to certain projects. If the room you're planning on reflooring is oddly shaped, highly visible, or extra humid, then you should consider working with your experienced team at Portice Carpet One Floor & Home.

We know all the tricks that will make sure your new floors look their best. Poor installation leads to unsightly gaps and peaking — peaking is where the edges of laminate panels lift up in V-shaped patterns and happens when flooring isn't given enough room to expand. Well-installed flooring is also more resistant to damage and will last longer. Instead of reflooring again in a few years, make sure your laminate is installed right the first time.
