Laminate Flooring in Cypress, TX
Laminate flooring was once considered a cheaper alternative to hardwood flooring, but digital printing technology has forever changed this, and the improvements keep on coming. At Boatman Carpet One Floor & Home of Cypress, TX, we have hundreds of gorgeous laminate flooring products. Here is a quick introduction to the emerging world of laminate flooring.
Is Laminate Flooring the Same As Vinyl & Hardwood?
There are more than noticeable differences between hardwood, vinyl, and laminate flooring. Hardwood is a natural flooring option, whereas laminate flooring is made with manufactured materials. While vinyl flooring is also manufactured, it contains synthetic materials, unlike laminate flooring, which is made from wood byproducts and resins.
Since the materials do not need to be harvested or milled, laminate floors are less expensive than hardwood. Unlike hardwood, laminate does not need to be refinished and is less likely to dent. Digital printing technology has come a long way, and even though laminate can’t provide the same value as hardwood, it delivers aesthetic value and endurance.
Is All Laminate Flooring Waterproof?
While every laminate floor resists household moisture, there are also completely waterproof options made to go the extra mile. Waterproof laminate flooring has a watertight core that prevents even the largest splashes from causing damage. We advise seeking a waterproof option if you have pets or little kids in the home.
Waterproof laminate floors, including those made by Mannington and Mohawk, can manage anything life tosses at it, offering the timeless, indisputable textures of hardwood.
Where Should I Install Laminate Flooring?
Laminate floors are a durable, reliable choice for:
- Living Rooms
- Laundry Rooms
- Family Rooms
It’s 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. Since laminate is so visually appealing now, you will seldom be able to tell the difference between natural hardwood and laminate.
