Attractive and cost efficient, laminate is available in many incredible designs from many natural woods. Now improved with the latest clicking systems, the texture of grain and added distressing.
At Flooring Superstores, we carry a wide range of laminate products that give you the look of wood for less—and their snap-and-click installation makes for a quick and easy new flooring project.
There are countless tutorials for the avid D-I-Yer along with detailed manufacturer brochures that will help you with your laminate installation. Or you can leave installation to us!
If we’re taking care of installation, our installers will come take a measure of your areas. There are a few things you can do to prepare:
Remove all furniture, art, linens, trinkets, clothing etc. from the room
(Doors may need to be resized by a carpenter if your new carpet has a higher pile than the previous flooring)
Vacuum to reduce airborne particles and dirt
Remove existing flooring
It’s a good idea to be on hand when the installers arrive so you can help them set up. After the install, you may want to give your new laminate a vacuum and damp Swiffer. You’ll find that maintenance is a breeze.
Laminate has become the go-to hardwood alternative for active households. It’s versatile, cost-effective, and low maintenance, while having the look and texture of solid wood or tile.
Laminate’s 4 layers are what makes it so durable:
This layer provides structural integrity and a barrier to moisture.
Depending on the manufacturer, the core is often made with high or medium density fiberboard. These are engineered wood products that are treated to make them very hard.
Under the top layer is a high-resolution image of a real hardwood board, which is what gives laminate the appearance of real wood species such as oak, ash, hickory, cherry, walnut, maple, and more.
The surface seals in the photographic design, creates the texture of the product, and provides protection against wear and tear.
All it takes is regular sweeping or vacuuming and occasional spot-cleaning with a lightly-damp cloth for spills. Ask our Flooring Consultants about the laminate-specific cleaning products we carry in-store.
Less is more:
Warranties for laminate promise that their products won’t stain from normal foods and drink, and that their top/wear layer will not wear through. They also warrant that their products will not fade quickly in normal household lighting or sunlight due to high UV resistance
