Three reasons why laminate flooring is in great demand

Introduced over 40 years ago and, thanks to modern technology, laminate flooring keeps evolving to offer sharper images, micro beveling, deeper embossing and a wider assortment of species, colors, patterns, and designs.

Today, laminate flooring is a remarkable simulation of wood, tile, or stone, and when cut into planks or tiles, there’s even more realism. The days of flat images are also long gone, because texturing is available to give it more depth and dimension.

While it’s considered a hard surface flooring, there is some cushioning that makes it less rigid and easier to stand on for long periods. That’s because of the underlayment, which also becomes a foundation to give the floor more stability, reduce sound and create a moisture barrier.

Additional benefits of laminate are:

  • Durability. It’s almost impossible to dent or scratch a laminate floor. The product has a protective wear layer on top. It is coated with aluminum oxide, an ultra-tough substance that adds abrasion resistance and makes it scratch and stain proof. If you do get a stain it will be easy to remove.
  • Installation is a snap. It used to be that you had to glue the pieces together, but now they just click and lock together like a puzzle. It’s also a floating installation, meaning that (with a few exceptions) it can go right over any subfloor, including concrete.
  • Easy maintenance.Just sweep or vacuum regularly and for deeper cleaning, use a damp mop and manufacturer-approved detergent.
  • Consistent appearance. Sometimes nature causes imperfections, and real wood can have pieces that need to be thrown away. There aren’t any of these challenges in laminate flooring; because the manufacturing process is carefully monitored to be sure everything is flawless.
These often come with a ten year warranty. Like anything, the better you take care of it, the longer the floor will last. Remember that it’s not completely waterproof, so never submerge it in water, wipe up spills immediately, and be sure the boards are very close together, so water can’t get in between the joists.
