Frequently Asked Questions About Laminate Floors & Flooring Installation
What is a laminate floor made of and how is it made?
Laminate flooring is a versatile, durable flooring option that mimics the appearance of a hardwood or tile floor. These floors are made up of several layers of material fused under high pressure, one of which is usually a moisture-resistant layer topped with a high-resolution, photographic image of the desired material look. Laminate flooring is typically finished with a clear coating of extremely durable protective resin. Laminate is considered eco-friendly as well, as it requires the use of fewer trees than hardwood.
How does laminate flooring compare to solid hardwood flooring?
To compare the two quite simply, laminate flooring is more affordable than hardwood. It’s typically up to half the cost of a traditional solid wood product. Laminate flooring is also easy to install. Thanks to its click-lock design, it can even be a good DIY project for more experienced home renovators. In many cases, installation doesn’t even require glue. Finally, unlike hardwood, laminate is often resistant to scratches and fading, and some modern styles are also waterproof.
Which flooring is waterproof and moisture resistant?
Laminate flooring comes in different levels of water resistance. Flooring may be treated with a waterproof wear layer to add protection against spills and moisture. Contact us to discuss your project and our professional team can help shop for the best option to keep your floors looking great and free from water damage.
Is there a laminate option that looks like wood flooring?
Yes! In fact, there are many natural looking options to choose from. Plank laminate flooring can mimic the look of natural hardwood floors, so if there is a specific species of wood desired, it can certainly be achieved through laminate planks.
Does the material need to acclimate before the installers can lay the flooring?
Yes. Laminate flooring needs to acclimate to the temperature and humidity of the new environment. The acclimation process typically takes 2-3 days before the laminate flooring can be installed.
How long will laminate floor installation take?
Installation can be relatively quick! Our team can provide an accurate estimate for any project. Simply give us a call or use our contact form to send us a message and we will get back to you right away!
How long after installation until the floor can be walked on?
It is recommended not to walk on freshly installed laminate flooring until 24 hours after installation. The floor needs to completely cure before it can be used.
How do I properly clean and maintain the laminate flooring in my home?
Laminate flooring is fantastic for the home because it is so easy to clean and maintain! Here are a few tips on caring for your laminate floors:
- Clean up spills and water as soon as possible.
- Rather than sliding furniture when rearranging a room, try to fully lift furniture instead.
- Use doormats at entrances to help catch dirt before it is tracked inside the home.
- Affix felt protector pads to furniture legs to keep sharp edges away from the laminate floor.
