Features of Laminate Flooring

Ease of Maintenance

Laminates are stain resistant make spills and stain easier to clean up. All you need is to Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly to prevent the accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish. Laminate is not waterproof, it is better to use less moisture to mop the floor to prevent the planks to swell and warp.

Laminate is much easier to install compare to other flooring materials. Homeowners can even install laminate over other types of flooring. This saves up a lot of cost and installation time compared to other types of flooring which may need to be glued, stapled or nailed down.
Due to ease of installation, it is common for homeowners to DIY. It is always best to engage a professional for evaluation of the condition of the previous flooring to be able to provide your home with a quality and professionally finished look.

Style Variation

You can find laminate flooring comes in different styles, from wood to stone and tile finishes. They are available in different colours and plank styles which enable homeowners to match the floor in the preferred style of your room.

Durability
