About laminate flooring

Laminate flooring provides long-lasting functionality, durability and stain-resistance. One of the best parts of laminate flooring is its ability to appear as attractive and authentic as many different types of flooring such as hardwood, tile and stone. Homeowners love that laminate floors are easy to maintain and don’t have the wear-and-tear of natural materials – and at a fraction of the cost. With a beautiful variety of laminate flooring in multiple materials, choose laminate floors for its strength, longevity and aesthetic.

Laminate flooring, the look for less

Choosing the right laminate

  • Laminate flooring is sold in thicknesses from 6 to 12mm and is measured from the base to the top of the board, not including the underlayment. The thickness of the laminate determines how much more impact-resistant and quieter the floor is when walked on. A greater thickness is also an advantage when dealing with a subfloor that may have imperfections, since thicker flooring will install more easily.
  • Laminate wood flooring is pressed composite wood overlaid with an image of various types of wood based to create a unique, yet familiar visual effect. This makes it a very cost-effective alternative to real hardwood.

Installing laminate

  • Locking laminate flooring feature tongue-and-groove construction which allows the planks to be snapped and locked into place. This type of laminate floor can be walked on immediately after installation.
  • Laminate floors require a thin underlayment, which feels softer underfoot and creates the realistic sound of walking on a hardwood floor. Some types of laminate flooring have a noise-resistant feature for those seeking quieter flooring.
  • Laminate is a floating floor, so it requires a small expansion space around the perimeter of the room to allow for movement with changes in humidity. This space can be covered with a coordinating wall base and quarter round to beautifully finish your room.
