Laminate Flooring in Texas

Laminate is a flooring that has versatility, durability and luxurious beauty, all with the look of real solid wood floors. While they look so much like wood floors that most people can’t tell the difference, there isn’t actually any wood used in its manufacturing. Instead, several different materials are layered together and then bonded at high pressure. The backing layer is topped with an image layer, which is then topped off with a protective coating.

This is the perfect choice for those who love hardwood floors but want better budget options and an easier and quicker installation. Some have asked about whether this flooring can be installed in the bathroom, but we have to advise against it. It can be installed in the kitchen, however, if all the guidelines are properly adhered to.And it should never be installed over a carpet or carpet padding.

Facts about laminate

One of the biggest advantages of this floor covering is the price. It only costs about half of what solid wood flooring costs, and in some instance, you can save even more. It’s a much easier install, as well, since there are no nails or glue needed in the process at all. Installation happens quickly and, unlike hardwood, you can walk on it as soon as the installers are finished.

While installation is easier, you do need to make sure that the subfloor is even, smooth and free from dampness. It can be installed over just about any subfloor, but in some cases, you may need a moisture barrier. This is the especially the case if you are installing over concrete.

Laminate flooring has a lifespan of about ten to thirty years. Of course, this can be altered by traffic rate and how the flooring is cared for. One of the things that can really shorten the lifespan is an improper install, so if you’re looking for longevity, it might be best to avoid the DIY projects.
