Pro’s of Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring can provide the visual appeal of hardwood, slate, tile, etc. for a fraction of the cost.
Laminate flooring comes in a wide array of designs that can replicate anything from domestic and exotic wood, to slate, to ceramic tile. Laminate also comes in different plank widths and styles in order for homeowners to create a customized look.
Laminate is extremely easy for a DIY homeowner to install. Since it’s created as tongue and groove planks, it’s as easy as laying them down and snapping them together. These planks can even be laid over a wide variety of subfloors and with the baseboards left in place, making for a quick and easy installation.
Laminate flooring is very easy to clean and is hygienic, making it both kid-friendly and pet-friendly.
Laminate flooring is an extremely resilient material that can withstand scratches, fading, and dents. It’s constructed of materials such as high-density fiberboard and moisture-resistant resin, which allows it to withstand high-traffic areas such as kitchens and entryways.
