Laminate Wood Floors Installation
Laminate Flooring is not real wood and for that reason it costs much less and works much better than solid floors if installed in basement, kitchen and cold places.
Laminate flooring is made of several particles of plastic and wood installed in different directions to give more stability to its base and then a thin layer of veneer ” fake wood” is installed, glued and pressed together. It really looks like real wood and some laminate floors gives even that feeling of solid wood when you walk on.
People love the look of an authentic wood floor, but still want more durability, a greater ability to handle moisture, an even easier installation, or just a great looking floor that they can budget! Laminate flooring does all of these. It recreates the charm and warmth of natural wood or stone, while being able to handle moisture and resist scratches better than hardwood, all at a lower cost. That’s why we love selling it. It’s why so many of our customers buy it. And they buy flooring from us not just because we are able to discount flooring to make it very affordable, but because we also offer wide variety of quality styles.

- Floating installation– This is the fastest and easiest method of installation. Floating floors are not attached to any subfloor, they simply float above it. Either adhesive is applied to the boards to keep them together, or the boards are made to simply snap together. Usually a pad is placed between the wood floor and the subfloor to protect against moisture and reduce noise. Floating floors can be installed over almost any surface.
