Laminate

Laminate flooring can be made to look like hardwood, ceramic tile, natural stone and many other flooring types at the fraction of the price. Laminate comes in a variety of textures, colors and styles. The maintenance for laminate is minimal compared to natural products. Not to mention how inexpensive it can be. StarFloors recommends laminate as a solution for a busy household. Laminate is highly resistant to scratches and normal wear and tear. This unique flooring is made from a fiber-board core that is treated with plastic resin for extra strength. Essentially laminate consists of four layers of raw materials. As an added bonus, this strong product is considered in the “green” category as it does not require tree harvesting.

Laminate Benefits

Laminate is well suited for shoppers who want the look and feel of real hardwood or stone without the cost or maintenance that can be associated with natural products. With laminate you can get many hardwood looks including the plank designs which are offered in the most common species of wood, but also the rare exotic wood species. Laminate stone and tile patterns will give you the elegant look of tile, but without the concerns of the tile cracking, grout staining, or tough to clean stains.

If you have small children or a busy household, laminate flooring is a great choice for you. Laminate flooring does not stain and it does not need to be varnished or waxed. Laminate floors are less likely to fade in direct sunlight and it can be installed on a variety of subfloors.

 

Laminate Maintenance and Installation


It’s been established that laminate hardwood is an affordable alternative to hardwood, natural stone or tile. Because laminate is a floating system, it makes for easy installation with little clean up. The hard resinous seal coat on the surface of the material makes it highly resistant to scratches and damage, and requires minimal maintenance. Finally, laminate is considered to be a “green” product because it does not require tree harvesting.
