When laminate was first introduced, it was offered as an alternative to hardwood. At first, it was obvious that laminate was not an authentic alternative to hardwood. Advances in manufacturing and digital technology have transformed laminate into what it is today, and even add more improvements as time goes on. You’ll be surprised by our collection of laminate floors and how closely they resemble real wood and tile.


Laminate Flooring vs Hardwood

Laminate planks and hardwood planks have several differences. Hardwood is a natural flooring option whereas laminate is made with man-made materials. Since these materials are man-made, laminate costs less than hardwood. Laminate planks do not have to be refinished and are resistant to dents and scratches. Although laminate may not be able to deliver the same added value, it can still deliver the same aesthetic style and warmth by replicating the look and feel of hardwood planks.


When to Choose Laminate Over Hardwood

Laminate is more resistant to moisture than most hardwoods. That means laminate can be installed in several different rooms around your home, and they can handle an active household. For the most part, laminate does well when you install it in rooms where you would install a real wood floor. Thankfully we also offer completely waterproof options so you can enjoy them in other rooms like bathrooms and kitchens. Laminate floors are great for families with pets and children in their homes because the surface is scratch resistant and wear resistant.



Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

While all laminate flooring has some level of moisture resistance, we also offer 100% waterproof options as well. Waterproof laminate flooring offers homeowners the chance to enjoy the look of natural wood floors in any room of the home without the stress of moisture or maintenance. This means you don’t have to worry when it comes to house training or bath time. A simple cleanup is all it takes to restore your laminate floors to their glory.

Where Can Laminate Flooring be Installed?


How Is Laminate Flooring Installed?

Laminate flooring is a beloved floor for many reasons, and one of them is how easy it is to install. There are a few ways to install laminate flooring such as the typical glue-down method. This method is easy but will take some time to let the glue set. Laminate is available as a floating floor, which means no adhesives are needed during the installation process, and it is easy to replace individual planks when needed.
