Let’s talk about laminate flooring!

Hardwood flooring

Laminate flooring has been created in order to provide your home with a heavy duty, hard wearing flooring type. Some people see it as an upgrade from vinyl, however there are a few key differences between those two types of flooring.

Frequent Laminate Flooring Questions

So where do you start when looking into laminate flooring? Well one of the first questions that we get asked is how long does laminate last? That depends on how well looked after it is. As long as you keep it clean, sweep up dust and debris regularly and clean up any spills as soon as they happen, your flooring should be lasting you anything up to around 10 years.

The main cause of damage to laminate tends to come from liquid saturation. This tends to occur when water or any other liquid has been allowed to sit on the laminate flooring for so long that it has been able to soak under the top protective layers of the flooring planks. This can then cause warping or swelling and means the flooring panels will need replacing.

But as long as you take care of your flooring, it will work well for you.

Laminate flooring consists of different layers, with one being the design layer. One of the main positives that comes with laminate is the wide amount of choice you have when it comes to different patterns. And with the technology that’s behind these printers, you can get some really impressive looking laminate designs!
