Laminate floor is an excellent alternative to hardwood floors due to several reasons. It is durable, easy to maintain, relatively easy to install, fade resistant, easy to maintain, and is least expensive than real wood floors. Laminate floor material was developed to simulate the look of hardwood floor.
Laminate Floors are made of different layers that include the backing, which is made of melamine plastic. This plastic acts as a moisture resistant property. The core layer is made up of high-density fiberboard and makes up most of the planks. The decorative layer is a high resolution digital image that gives the appearance of real wood. Last is the ware layer, this protects the surface of the laminate.
Laminate floors can be installed on top of most floor surfaces as it is not nailed or glued, but rather it floats. The first step is leveling the floors. This prevents unevenness and insures long lasting results. Next, the laminate floor is cleaned and covered with a thin plastic underlayment. This layer acts as a moisture barrier. It is best to have your floor professionally installed due to the possibilities of poor installation errors. A poorly installed floor is not worth the savings.
Laminates floors are great especially if you have large dogs. Laminate is highly scratch resistant, more so than real wood floors. Second, the cost is less expensive than hardwood floor, and less expensive than engineered wood.
To insure a long life for your laminate floors you must keep the surface clean and dry. When vacuuming laminate floors, do not use a vacuum with a beater bar. Be sure to keep the floor free of dirt as dirt may scratch the ware layer. If your laminate floors are maintained properly, they may last for centuries. See more tips
