Laminate flooring is a manufactured floor made of several layers of fused composite wood. Laminate can replicate the look and feel of hardwood flooring thanks to design and engineering making it a great alternative. Laminate flooring is also more affordable and moisture-resistant compared to hardwood but still requires regular sweeping and cleaning like hardwood. Laminate floors are intentionally made so each layer serves the purpose of creating a strong, stylish floor. These layers include:
There are an endless number of benefits to having laminate floors, especially in the Saginaw, MI area. Let's explore some of them below:
Traditional laminate flooring is not waterproof. While there is some protection against minor spills and accidents in all laminate flooring, larger spills or pools of water can seep into the floors and potentially ruin your floors. While we don’t think you’ll flood your home on purpose, at least we hope, accidents happen, and cleaning up as quickly as possible can help prevent damage no matter the size. Thankfully, laminate flooring is incredibly durable and resilient, and accidents that cause permanent damage are rare. We also carry 100% waterproof laminate flooring so you can avoid the potential headaches altogether.
On the surface, luxury vinyl and laminate flooring may seem quite similar. They both can authentically replicate the look of natural hardwood flooring while providing extra durability and protection. However, these two floors are in fact extremely different especially, under the surface. Laminate flooring is wood-based and made with a fiberboard core which makes it more susceptible to moisture. Luxury vinyl is made with a composite or polymer core, which makes it more susceptible to temperature.
As a wood-based product, laminate flooring can be installed anywhere hardwood can. Laminate flooring is a great – and durable – addition to bedrooms, living rooms, offices, and more. Laminate can even be installed in rooms where hardwood traditionally cannot be, like kitchens and basements. Laminate flooring is a breeze to install, most often using the click-lock method, and when it comes to installation, we’re always here to help.
