Laminate flooring features a tough core underneath
that will stand up to 1,250 pounds per square inch of pressure. Laminate flooring installation is
also much easier than hardwood and other products. It never requires any
special glue, because it uses a tongue and groove click system where you
literally snap the laminate sections together. The kind of sub-floor you have doesn’t
matter either, since laminate floors do not have to be glued down or nailed
down. Instead, it just floats, which means that it can be set on top of concrete,
wood, plywood, or even an existing vinyl floor. Most laminate floors can also
be set in place directly over radiant heated concrete.
Furthermore, thanks to the wide selection of
domestic and exotic tree species patterns and textures to choose from that precisely replicate real wood, you
also have virtually unlimited design choices. This diversity, coupled with the
very affordable cost, makes laminate flooring a great investment for
homeowners. Cleaning laminate flooring
is really easy too. You’ll never need to use any wax or polish; all your floor
will require is a dust mop or vacuum, followed by a pass over with a damp mop.
