At RPS Flooring, we absolutely love laminate! It offers the beautiful look of hardwood flooring without any of the tedious upkeep. If you are looking for the perfect new flooring for your Maryland home, look no further than laminate. Here are six of the biggest ways that laminate flooring can improve your home.
Laminate Flooring is Sized Conveniently
Hardwood flooring planks are typically sold in eight or ten-foot lengths and longer. While this does create a streamlined and seamless look, it is very bulky to transport and carry. Laminate flooring is typically sold in four-foot strips that can be easily installed, transported, and stored.
Laminate Flooring Gives the Look Without the Price Tag
Hardwood flooring is incredibly expensive to install in your Maryland home. Laminate flooring, however, gives the exact look of hardwood flooring without the steep cost.
Laminate Flooring Comes in Many Styles
Wood flooring can offer a small range of colors and finishes, but with laminate flooring the possibilities are endless. Laminate flooring can be produced to look exactly like different species of wood, ceramic flooring, or natural stone flooring. If you are concerned about installing wood flooring in a certain area of your home where laminate flooring would be perfect, you can get the exact look you need without the stress of maintaining wood flooring.
Laminate Flooring is Easy to Clean
Laminate flooring is resistant to staining and spilling. Beyond that, it is very easy to clean, making it the perfect flooring for families with young children or pets. Laminate flooring can be swept and mopped with ease and won’t suffer water damage as a result like hardwood flooring will.
Laminate Flooring is a Breeze to Install
Laminate flooring can be installed over just about any flooring, as long as a moisture barrier is put into place. Laminate flooring planks are manufactured to easily snap together. Since laminate flooring is so easy to install, you can actually install it yourself or pay much less for labor to have a professional get the job done. The cost savings from purchasing laminate flooring are often doubled when you factor in the amount that you’ll also be saving on labor.
Laminate Flooring is Resistant to Humidity Damage
In Maryland, summers are full of humidity. When you have hardwood flooring, the boards will expand and contract throughout the year and need to be installed with plenty of space to do so. Laminate flooring can be locked together and expand and contract without worry over buckling or cracking, making it an ideal choice for Maryland homeowners.
