So you’re looking for that wood look for your floors, but your budget isn’t exactly at that level? Maybe you love the elegance of real wood floors but lead a lifestyle so busy that maintenance would be a chore. Well, in either of those cases, as well as others, we have good news! Laminate could be just the material you’ve been looking for all this time.
With this floor covering, you’ll get the elegance you’ve been longing for, with many added benefits as well. For instance, while this material falls under the hard flooring category, it can be made to feel much softer underfoot simply by having the right underpadding installed. This also helps to alleviate some of the clicking sounds you might hear when walking across this flooring. Some homeowners find that to be a bit distasteful, as everyone has their own opinion, but we can work with that.
Durability is always one of the topics that comes up in conversations with homeowners. Rest assured that laminate is very durable, and even carries a warranty in most cases, to back that statement up. Make sure you find out all the details from your flooring professional, however. Some warranties are voided if the homeowner attempts a do it yourself installation of the materials.
