Care & Maintenance
Laminate’s construction makes it inherently durable, but you’ll want to remember a few basics of routine care, protection, and repair. Depend on us to let you know all about these methods for keeping your laminate floor at its most attractive.
Laminate is constructed in layers to create lasting, affordable, beautiful floors. Four layers of material, each of which has its own purpose, are fused together through a direct-pressure process that binds them into one extremely durable material. And this material is today’s laminate—a type of flooring that will endure much wear and tear, performing well for many years.
We help you every step of the way after you’ve selected your new floor: professional on-site measurement, removal of old flooring, and skilled installation that includes moving your furniture and replacing trim. We do it all expertly, so your floor will look amazing and give lasting satisfaction. Learn the particulars about laminate installation here.
Before and During Installation
Benefits of Laminate
Appealing hardwood visuals and marvelous slate and stone looks are the hallmark of today’s laminate. It simply looks like the real thing. And laminate flooring is great for busy families: it installs easily, wears incredibly well, and comes in breathtaking colors and styles. High-end and fashionable, laminate’s a hot choice.
More About Laminate
A Closer Look At Laminate Layers:
Layer 1: A melamine backing layer that provides a moisture barrier and structural integrity and stability.
Layer 2: A dense, strong inner layer—sometimes called core-board—made of compressed wood fiber.
Layer 3: A melamine decorative layer that provides the floor's beauty and realism through highly detailed photography—giving laminate the appearance of natural hardwood, ceramic tile, or stone.
Layer 4: A melamine wear layer that offers a tough, beautiful finish resistant to stain, fade, and wear. (In some products, it is reinforced with aluminum oxide, an extremely hard mineral compound, to increase resistance to staining, fading, surface moisture, and wear.)
