why choose laminate flooring

There are many benefits to choosing laminate flooring. It can work great in your home, office, or commercial building. The reason it works so well in many different places is that it’s so diverse in style and easy to maintain. Laminate flooring LOOKS like hardwood flooring but is typically available at a lower cost. Laminate flooring is a type of flooring that is affordable, durable and easy to maintain. These floors are made of wood-appearing sheets which are then covered with a layer of melamine resin. that creates a hard surface that can be walked on. This type of flooring is commonly used in residential as well as commercial spaces and is also fire-resistant.  One of the top reasons our customers choose laminate is because there are many different styles and colors which you can read more about below. There aren’t many reasons not to choose laminate!

the benefits of laminate flooring

As mentioned above, there are numerous benefits in choosing laminate flooring. Its versatility is one of the main benefits. When you’re redoing your space, you typically have a vision that they want to see through. Whether you found a photo on Pinterest, or you found inspiration from someone else’s home, we understand that you have a vision and that’s why we chose to offer laminate at Dalton. Another benefit is that it’s often an easy and quick install. Laminate flooring has been produced for many years which means it has been perfected over time. So, if you like the look of hardwood and are on a budget, but want to see your vision through, laminate flooring is the right choice for you!

Laminate flooring is extremely durable – Protected by a tough external layer and resin coating, it’s much stronger, scratch-resistant and long lasting than any other hardwood, vinyl or carpet. It’s virtually resistant to virtually everything!

Laminate flooring is stain, fade, and moisture-resistant – The majority of laminate flooring manufacturers offer warranty protection against stains, fading and moisture damage. Laminate floors are easy to maintain and ideal for homes with kids or pets. Drastically easier to clean than hardwood, it can also be fitted with a surface built-in stain resistance that makes spills easy to wipe up and prevents scratches. You don’t need any coatings or waxes to keep your laminate looking great.

Laminate flooring can be affordable – Not only is it more affordable to start with, but when you consider how it lasts, it becomes a very economically sound option. When it comes to flooring, laminate has more options than hardwood and stone because of the endless possibilities offered by a variety of color tones. The many patterned options make it possible to match your floor with the style of your house or room.

When choosing laminate flooring, there are multiple options and combinations for you to choose from.

Laminate has a few different textures to choose from. One of the most popular texture is woodgrain to replicate the look of natural wood. Other textures you can choose from are marble, stone, and a smooth surface.  Consider how dirt will affect the textures, whether it’s in a high traffic area, or if you’re trying to match the style of a room.  There are many choices and we are available to present them all to you during your in-home consultation.

Not only are there different textures to choose from, there are also different structures. Laminate comes in planks and tiles, which allows for more versatility. Planks are typically rectangular and tiles are more square. Generally, planks are used in common areas, living rooms, and offices. Tiles are perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. Both types of structure give the appearance of style in their respective rooms.
