It is always wise to look at all options before making a decision about which flooring option is the best one for your home or office. Wooden floors are particularly popular and there are many wood flooring companies to choose from. Laminate flooring is a particularly popular type of wood flooring, and the laminate floor prices are not that steep.
Laminate flooring is made of many different layers that are joined together through a lamination process. The core of each laminate floor board is made from fibreboard and this is topped with the aesthetic layer and the protective layer is right of top. The protective layer protects the photographic image layer from wear and tear.
Laminated floors are renowned for their cost effective nature. They offer buyers all the aesthetic appeal of real wooden flooring at a fraction of the cost. Laminate floor prices are quite affordable and it is the ideal choice for those who have a particularly tight budget to work with.
One of the benefits of installing laminated flooring is that they are relatively durable. They have a life expectancy of five years if the area sees a lot of foot traffic. The surface of laminate wooden floors does not scratch easily and if a scratch should occur, it can easily be repaired by applying laminate floor repair paste which is available from any hardware store.
Another advantage that comes with choosing wood laminate flooring instead of real wood flooring is that it is very easy to install. DIY laminate floors can be installed without the help of a professional at all. All laminate floor boards can be clicked into place thanks to the user friendly tongue and groove design. Most quality products also have a glue backing which keeps the laminate flooring in place once installed.
It should be noted that laminate flooring does not cope well in spaces where there is a lot of moisture such as in a bathroom or sauna. If a spill occurs then you need to make sure that you wipe up the liquid fairly quickly. If any water does seep down in-between the laminate floor boards, it can result in warping and swelling.
