1. With laminate flooring, you can install ‘wood’ in your bathroom.
Wood-look laminate is one of the materials that work well in a moisture-prone space. Water pools on the surface of standard laminate where it is easy to remove. No damage is done as long as the water is cleaned up immediately. Wood species and styles are numerous.
2. The best laminate brands are waterproof.
Laminate that repels water offers peace of mind, and it's a feature that has the potential to extend the lifespan of your new floor. It's important to note that the flooring is waterproof for the length of time listed by the manufacturer. Typically, this is about 24 hours.
3. Stone-look laminate is ideal for an entryway or a kitchen.
A natural stone floor, often installed in the back of a home, requires routine maintenance and space to support its weight. Lightweight laminate tiles, which mimic stones like travertine, slate, and marble, are a great alternative. In addition, Glue-down and floating floor styles are available.
4. Durability is easily judged by noting the AC rating.
A third party rigorously tests laminate before entering the marketplace. Specifically, each line of flooring is tested for resistance to scratches, stains, burns, and impact. An Abrasion Coefficient rating is given after every test is passed. Flooring-rated AC3 is best for homes.
5. It's wise to invest in high-quality padding.
Padding supports and protects laminate flooring. Since it enhances the performance of the floor, it's a good idea to choose a top-quality brand. Manufacturer recommendations may be found in the product specifications. In addition, some brands are made with pre-attached padding.
