Here's a handy lowdown on laminate flooring and how to plan your next flooring installation.


Are Laminate Floors Better Than Hardwood Floors?

While we wouldn’t directly compare laminate floors to actual wood, there are certainly some compelling reasons for choosing the former.

Currently one of the hottest alternatives to natural hardwood, laminate flooring is a game-changer. It boasts realistic natural wood visuals while leveraging its manufactured design for benefits you won’t find in real hardwood.


Compared to actual hardwood, laminate flooring is:


  • Significantly more affordable.
  • Can manage heavy moisture.
  • Won’t easily dent or scratch.
  • Child and Pet Friendly.
  • Has minimal impact on the environment.


Composed of four composite wood layers that are fused, laminate flooring is known for its tough exterior, which makes it an excellent option for high-traffic areas.


Is Laminate Flooring Really Waterproof?

Although most laminate floors aren’t completely waterproof, most are water-resistant and intended for spaces with reasonable moisture levels.


This means, of course, that one should exercise vigilance in wiping away spills and splashes right away. Luckily, modern manufacturing has made laminate flooring even stronger and better, and we are proud to carry selections of 100% waterproof laminate flooring.


With waterproof laminate floors, you won’t have to worry about spills and splashes permanently damaging your floors. 100% waterproof flooring also allows you to enjoy laminate in more rooms in your home than traditional hardwood.


Is Laminate Flooring Pet and Family Friendly?

The short answer is, YES!

For those with pets or toddlers at home, it’s important to have added reinforcement in rooms where families tend to gather most. Laminate floors are extremely popular for busy households requireing durable floors. 


For maximum protection, a truly waterproof laminate floor will give you the ultimate peace of mind.

You can enjoy the natural look of hardwood without sacrificing the quality performance and low maintenance of laminate.


How Is Laminate Flooring Installed?

Laminate flooring installation is a relatively simple process compared to other flooring options.


The bulk of laminate floors are “floated,” meaning each plank is made to click and lock into place. No glues, nails, nor chemicals are required for this type of installation process.


Because laminates are floating floors, the technique used for the installation is the click-lock method. In simple words, this means snapping the laminate planks. Don't worry about the reliability of the method because these planks aredesigned to stay in place: at least ten pounds of force are needed to separate them.


Should My Laminate Floor Be Professionally Installed?


Although the installation seems effortless compared to other types of floors, it is always recommended to have a professional installer do the work for you.


Why, you ask? Simply put, the average homeowner doesn’t have the tools, skills, or time to oversee this project properly. Also, your product warranty likely requires professional installation to ensure future coverage! Another critical thing to have in mind is having one of our flooring experts evaluate the subfloor's condition before purchasing.


Thankfully, we house an incredible team of installers on the ready, here to get each project off to a prompt finish.
