Laminate flooring is popular for its affordability and easy installation process. Laminates are durable and scratch resistant and are a great choice for active families! Made of pressed wood with a “photograph” on the top layer covered by a clear wear layer, laminate can be made to look like wood, tile, or stone flooring. Laminate flooring is consistent in quality and appearance and is mostly impervious, which means it can be installed in just about every room of the home, but it is not typically waterproof, therefore it’s not recommended for wet areas such as bathrooms. There are now new laminate products on the market that have moisture lock systems and are rated safe for wet areas. Our staff can help you choose the right option for your home!
Laminates are quite easy to clean with just a broom and dust mop. However, excessive moisture can seep in between seams causing swelling. Avoid this by using laminate floor cleaner or a mop that is only slightly damp.
