Laminate vs. Hardwood

Thanks to great strides in advancing flooring technology, laminate realistically mimics the look and feel of a hardwood surface. Most people can’t tell that laminate is different from genuine hardwood. Each plank is made from layers of composite wood, with a high-definition hardwood visual on the surface that brings its high-end looks. Compared to genuine hardwood, a sizeable number of homeowners feel that laminate is much better since it’s:

 

Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

Today’s laminate flooring comes in water-resistant and 100% waterproof options. Waterproof laminate further protects your investment from accidents, spills, and moisture. Our Mirror Lake collection is completely waterproof. Each plank has a fast-drying surface that wicks moisture and leak-tight seams. Waterproof laminate flooring will keep your subfloor dry and protected, even in moisture-prone spaces like bathrooms, mudrooms, basements, and kitchens.

 

 

Installing Laminate Flooring

Most laminate floors are installed as a floating floor that requires no messy glues to adhere the planks together. This flooring is very easy to install because the planks snap together like tongue and groove to stay in place. The beauty of a floating floor is that you can install it over any other subfloor type without the need to remove the original flooring. Subfloors may be concrete, plywood, hardwood, or vinyl. The laminate simply rests on top of the original subfloor and is not attached to it with fasteners, nails, screws, grout, or glue. This is a great advantage when installing flooring as it saves the cost of fasteners and the time involved in doing so. Having your laminate professionally installed can reduce the installation cost because it takes little time to install flooring in an entire room. Floating floors can be installed with underlayment padding that reduces the sounds of walking on them.

 

Laminate can be installed in any room in your home, but it performs very well in below-grade and moisture-prone spaces, so you don’t have to worry. Bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, kitchens, hallways, and just about any room you can think of will benefit visually and performance-wise from durable and beautiful laminate flooring.
