Laminate Flooring

How is Laminate Flooring Different from Other Flooring?

Laminate flooring is designed to resemble the look of real wood at a fraction of the cost. Unlike other floorings, laminate wood flooring is made up of wood fibres with four layers:

  • The backing layer that acts as a barrier to prevent water from penetrating underneath.
  • The core layer made of compressed fiberboard that gives laminate flooring durability.
  • The image layer can make laminate look like wood, stone, metal, and many more prints and textures.
  • The wear layer that makes laminate flooring less susceptible to wear and tear.

Waterproof Laminate Flooring

Upgrading your home with waterproof laminate flooring gives you the look of traditional hardwood floors in rooms that typically aren’t able to stand up to moisture and spills, like the kitchen, bathroom, and basement.

When installed properly, the vapour barrier underneath provides protection against water damage and prevents mold from forming.

Easy To Maintain

Laminate flooring does not require floor waxing. Simply sweep or mop with an all-purpose cleaner or damp cloth. A strong wear layer makes laminate flooring less prone to scratches, dents, and stains – great news for pet owners and families with young children!

Laminate flooring has an interlocking design with a smooth finish. With proper installation, it leaves little room for dirt and debris to hide, making it ideal for people who suffer from allergies.

More Design Options

The print layer on laminate flooring can mimic a variety of surfaces including hardwood, stone, and metal with different textures to fit your design idea. Choose from smooth to distressed, embossed to a more natural look – laminate floor planks give you more options to get the look you want.

Easy Installation

Laminate flooring can be installed over most existing floors, making installation quick and easy. With thorough instructions, you have the option of installing the laminate floor planks yourself. If installed poorly, water damage can occur underneath laminate floor planks or create a hollow sound. A good underlayment ensures proper protection against moisture and makes for a quieter floor.

The professional team at Deerfoot Carpet and Flooring can ensure that your laminate floor is installed into your home correctly the first time around to avoid costly surprises and preventable issues in the future.
