What should I look for in a laminate floor installation?
Look for an installer who will take the time up front to start the job right: by measuring the room first and making adjustments for irregularities, we can make sure you don’t end up with crooked lines, gaps and flaws that can ruin the look of your beautiful flooring material.
Because it does not need to be sanded or stained, the cost to install a laminate floor is also much more wallet-friendly than hardwood flooring. Prep costs may be less, too, because laminates can be installed over many different kinds of sub-floor, and even some existing floors.
What about maintaining my laminate floor installation?
Laminates are very durable and can last for many years. Itâ€™s also very resistant to warping and staining. No waxing or resurfacing is required to maintain your laminate flooring; a simple sweep or vacuuming is enough to keep the surface clean. Itâ€™s a good idea to remove any gritty material from the floor as soon as possible to prevent scratching the laminate finish.
What else should I know about laminate floor installation?
Laminates may not be ideal for extremely high-humidity areas like bathrooms and saunas because humidity could cause the flooring to warp.
