Once upon a time, homeowners avoided laminate flooring due to it’s cheap appearance and unforgiving feel underfoot. Today, laminate flooring comes in a much wider variety of textures, patterns, and quality, and is able to get closer to the look and feel of real wood. Most importantly, laminate flooring is quick to install and inexpensive, giving you a great looking floor quickly and at a price you can afford. For many homeowners and business owners, laminate is just the right fit. My Affordable Floors is your best bet for quality laminate floor installation in Milwaukee, Racine and Chicago.
Laminate flooring has the beautiful and prestigious look of hardwoods but are tougher and more wallet-friendly. Due to new manufacturing techniques, laminate is available in patterns and textures that can replicate nearly any type of hardwood. Different sheens create many options to fit any preference. New types of underlayment and designs allow for a better feel underfoot as well.
If you are considering laminate flooring for your home or business, you will want to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of laminate floors before you make a purchasing decision. Laminate floors are one of the more durable choices you can make for your flooring. They resist stains, water and impact exceptionally well. Ease of installation reduces costs and time, and maintenance and repair is a snap with laminate flooring. Cleaning and maintenance are simple, and laminate flooring can often be installed right over existing hard surface flooring.
Laminate flooring is not without drawbacks, however. Many types lend themselves to a unpleasant and hard underfoot feeling, and laminate doesn’t insulate and deaden sound in your home the way that carpet, and even hardwood, can. Laminate is also not a highly prized flooring material, so it does not add value to your home and likely won’t do much to impress potential buyers.
In many situations, however, laminate flooring is an exceptional choice. Its variety of styles, ease of installation, and low cost often trump many of the drawbacks associated with laminate.
