Laminate flooring can be a great option for your home or business. It is an affordable option with a number of varieties to match your taste and needs. It can look just like wood, stone, or tile flooring, without the cost of maintenance. It is also water resistant, scratch resistant, and build for more long-term wear and tear.

There are some myths and misunderstandings about laminate flooring. We would love to set the record straight about this durable flooring option.

Myth #1 - “I don’t think laminate is strong, durable, and I am afraid it will be easily damaged.”

Each laminate panel consists of 4 layers: a base, a substrate, a pattern, and a wear layer. Due to this multiple layered and engineered design, it is built to be incredibly durable and can last for many years with proper care.

Myth #2 - “Doesn’t laminate look cheap?”

Years of design improvements and material engineering have yielded a different, modern laminate flooring. Today’s laminate flooring offers a variety of textures, designs, and styles. If you still feel anxious, we invite you to visit us and take a look for yourself.

Myth #3 - “I can’t afford laminate flooring. Isn’t is expensive?”

Laminate flooring is an affordable and attractive option that we install every day. For some individuals and businesses, it can be a cost-effective alternative to hardwood, tile, or carpet. Laminate flooring is also scratch resistant, water resistant, and incredibly durable, making it a solid invest for your flooring needs.

Myth #4 - “I have heard that it is difficult and time consuming to clean laminate.”

Properly installed laminate floors provide a tight, smooth fit. This eliminate seams and gaps that could collect dust or debris. A vacuum or a dust mop is really all you need to remove any dust, dirt, or other debris from your laminate floors.

Myth #5 - “If any part of my laminate flooring is damaged, I have to replace the whole thing.”

Modern day laminate flooring is sold and installed in planks. These planks allow for the best possible fit and look for your home or business. Replacement needs are not common, due to the durability of laminate flooring. However, any individual plank could be replaced, if there was a situation where it was necessary.
