Thinking of laminate flooring for your home? Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta is your one-stop shop for laminate flooring advice and installation. In this article, we briefly answer some of our most common questions.
Why choose laminate flooring?
Laminate flooring is highly durable, easy to clean, and easier to install than many other flooring surfaces. For homeowners who want the appearance of hardwood or stone without the higher price point, laminate flooring is a great option.
Explain laminate flooring’s durability
Laminate flooring is highly resistant to scratches and dents—a perfect combination for homeowners with children and pets. It’s composed of four different layers and its wear layer protects against the photographic layer underneath. The wear layer is made of aluminum oxide and melamine resin, making it impervious to staining. Laminate flooring is also highly resistant to fading from sunlight.
How do you clean laminate floors?
Laminate floors can simply be swept, vacuumed, or mopped with a slightly damp mop. You can also use laminate floor cleaner with a Swiffer. Many flooring manufacturers offer ten-plus year warranties on their laminate floors.
How is laminate flooring installed?
Our experts at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta have extensive experience installing laminate floors in all rooms of a house. Laminate flooring planks come with a tongue-and-groove system. This allows each plank to be clicked into one another. Most of today’s laminate planks are “floated” over the top of a foam or film underlayment.
What types of laminate flooring styles are available?
This is where laminate flooring really shines. Because of advancements in modern printing technologies, laminate flooring can emulate every flooring surface you can think of. Hardwood and stone laminate patterns are the most popular. Tile laminate is also an option. Want to go crazy with your color and pattern combination? Laminate flooring can likely satisfy your creative spirit!
