Many homeowners choose laminate flooring simply because it is an affordable option to solid hardwood flooring, while still mimicking that natural resource very well. It looks and feels just like real solid wood, but you won’t have to maintain it in the same way. In fact, a broom and a mop should keep these floors looking showroom perfect for years to come. Installing laminate is a quick and easy process, because the boards simply click and lock together. In fact, because this hard surface flooring is often much thicker than others, it can often even outlast a flooring that might be a little uneven to start with. It can be installed over a variety of subfloors, with minimal effort in prep work. Laminate can often make a clicking noise when walked on, and some homeowners don’t care for this effect. If this would be an issue in your home, simply speak to your flooring professional about an underlayment that can prevent this from happening. This will not only take care of the noise, but can also add to the warmth of this flooring underfoot.
Some laminate now comes in the waterproof variety as well. This means that the bathroom, laundry room and other rooms that are prone to moisture or spills, are not off limits. In fact, this could be a level of security you owe it to yourself to have in place. Because life happens.
