It's so realistic that many can't immediately tell the difference. But what sets laminate apart are the perks it offers over traditional hardwood:

Professional Laminate Flooring Installation in Melbourne, FL


Most laminate floors are installed as floating floors, requiring no messy glues to adhere the planks together. This flooring is straightforward 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 removing the original flooring. Subfloors may be concrete, plywood, hardwood, or vinyl. The laminate 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. Having your laminate professionally installed can reduce the installation cost because installing flooring in an entire room takes little time. 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 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.
