Laminate Flooring FAQs

Durable floors begin with laminate. It can be used in any room. It comes in a variety of colors, stains, and wood grains for wood-looking floors. Here are some FAQs about Laminate.

How long will it last?

Laminate floor is meant to last up to twenty years or more with proper care and cleaning. It has a long track record of handling little feet and tiny paws. Pets and children are welcome on this flooring. Most warranties of these products will extend up to twenty years and beyond.

Is it waterproof?

It is water-resistant. This means that most spills if cleaned up properly, will not affect the flooring at all. You can also purchase waterproof laminate flooring.

Is it high maintenance?

Not at all. Laminate flooring is easy to clean. Usually, sweeping is all that you need. So you don’t need to worry about purchasing special chemicals for cleaning. You can also vacuum it and mop it with a damp mop.

Will the installation take a long time?

It can be installed easily in planks or tiles. It doesn't need to be glued or fastened down to the sub-floor because it can be installed as a floating floor. The planks and tiles click and lock together like a jigsaw. Padding is placed underneath to provide a softer cushion. Since it is a floating floor, it doesn’t take long to install.

What about the hollow sound of flooring?

Whether the sub-floor is wood, concrete, or tile, this doesn’t affect the installation process. The padding placed underneath provides a sound barrier to lessen the hollow sound that may develop without padding. So your floor includes insulation and a deafening of noise.

How will it look?

We cannot stress strongly enough how beautiful these floors will look in your home. These floors are sure to turn heads; they are dressy enough for living rooms and dining rooms or your most formal room. Yet they can be casual enough for a game room or bedroom.

Will it fade in the sunlight?

Whereas some flooring does fade after prolonged exposure to sunlight, laminate is designed not to do that. So you can place it in any sunlight exposed area and be assured that it will remain vibrant and clear.
