A Lifetime of Durability From Laminated Flooring
Laminated flooring is highly durable, long lasting and well worth the cost. It offers you the classic look of hardwood floors without the pain and inconvenience of having to clean and maintain them. Laminated floors are made from a composite of wood chips and veneers that give it a texture and grainy appearance that gives it great protection against scratches and wear and tear, making them the best option for interior and exterior use.
Laminated floors also offer durability. They are weather resistant, which means that the damage from rain, heat, cold and other weather related elements will not mar the surface of the flooring. The combination of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) in the composite ensures that the flooring will be able to endure extreme climates as well as hot or cold temperatures without even a dent being left behind.
Homeowners often choose laminated flooring for its durability and style. Laminated is also very economical. For homeowners who find hardwood floors to be too expensive, laminated flooring is the next best option.
Laminated flooring is also available in a variety of styles and colors. It is possible to get different designs from the same flooring plan, while the price per square foot for the overall flooring is significantly lower than those tiles that are not laminated. Colors also range in color from light to dark, depending on the specific type of wood used. Laminated flooring has a professional look that makes the flooring a pleasure to look at.
Before you buy laminated flooring, you should know a little bit about what is involved in the process of laminating. First of all, the floors must be prepared with water based polyvinyl chloride (PVC) compound. A spray gun is used to give it the final finish, but the manufacturer recommends that the homeowner first prepare the floors by spraying it with primer, followed by a primer coat.
After that, the flooring is ready to be installed. The step before that is the need to sand the floor so that no visible marks are left behind. Then, a rubber mat is put on the floor and the flooring is applied by hand with care. The mat keeps the floor smooth and eliminates any scratches or dents that might be present.
The final step involves removing the flooring from the rubber mat. The last step in the process is when the floor is placed in place, then it is smoothed to remove any defects or dents that were left in the flooring. The entire process may take a few hours, but you do not have to worry about your flooring looking shabby or lacking in charm, because it is beautiful. Its traditional look is a perfect blend of practicality and style.
Laminated flooring offers a new look for your home. The appearance of the floor can be modified to make it match your taste and fit your space. You can easily achieve a professional look for your home without having to spend an arm and a leg, unlike hardwood floors, where it is necessary to hire a professional flooring installer or spend a lot of money just to have your floor polished and put back in its original position.
