As a less expensive alternative to hardwood, laminate floors are becoming more and more popular among active Calgary homeowners. These floors are ultra-durable and low-maintenance, which makes them perfect for people on the go! If you’re considering a laminate floor but aren’t exactly sure where to start, then this guide from the experts at Floor Coverings International Calgary is for you! Here’s everything you need to know about laminate flooring:
They look good.
Thanks to advancements in printing technology, laminate floors are now hyper-realistic and virtually indistinguishable from traditional hardwood. On top of that, they come in a huge selection of styles and designs so you’re sure to find the perfect one for you.
They’re easy to install.
Unlike hardwood, laminate floors are quick for your team of flooring professionals to install. They don’t need to be glued or stapled down, which reduces overall installation time (and therefore reduces any day-of installation inconveniences). If you want a new floor and you want it fast, then laminate is a great choice!
They’re super durable.
This is the area where laminate floors truly shine. They are factory sealed and made of high-density fiberboards that are extremely difficult to dent or scratch. Laminate floors are known for their durability and make great floors for homeowners with kids and pets.
Leave the days of using harsh cleaning chemicals and wood floor treatments behind! Laminate floors are incredibly easy to maintain and only need to be swept up every so often.
When deciding between laminate and hardwood, there is simply no comparison when it comes to price. Laminate is the perfect floor for budget remodels as it is generally very affordable.
