Laminate has always been an excellent alternative for solid hardwood flooring. It’s a great material to lean on if you’re not quite sure wood flooring is for you, or if you’re not ready to commit to the budget or life span that solid wood brings with it. The realistic look means that your guests will probably not be able to tell it’s not the real thing. From species style to stain color and finish type, it is incredibly accurate in mimicking the real thing. What’s more, you can change it more often, to keep up with changing trends or your own preferences for flooring.

In addition to its many benefits, laminate has a great lifespan that should serve your needs well. With warranties averaging the 25-year time frame, you’ll find it helps to create a peace of mind, while leaving a window of opportunity to change things up from time to time as well. Using area rugs strategically, as well as cleaning these floors on a regular basis, helps to meet the longest possible lifespan with ease.
Durability is a standard feature of laminate flooring, something you’ll find soon after having it installed. It stands up well under repeated daily use and resists scratches, scuffing, staining, and fading in direct sunlight. What’s more, if you choose the water resistant option, it can be used with great peace of mind in kitchens, foyers, and more. While it cannot be refinished the same way hardwood flooring can, the durability should keep these floors looking great for the greatest portion of their lifespan.
Installation is a quick and simple procedure for professional installers, who can usually get the job done quicker than you may think. With a click and lock installation system, you won’t even need a great deal of subfloor preparation before installation begins. In some cases, it can even create a smoother look for flooring that may have been uneven before the install.
