Laminate flooring adds outstanding aesthetic value to your home. If you want the beautiful look of hardwood at a lower price point, consider laminate flooring from iStone Floors.
At first glance, laminate floors look exactly like natural wood. However, laminate flooring is actually made of synthetic materials combined with natural and recycled ingredients to mimic the look of a natural wood floor. Laminate planks snap together easily, and some varieties include a moisture barrier that levels out uneven sections.
In addition to the lower up-front cost, laminate flooring is much cheaper to maintain than traditional hardwood or carpeting. Hardwood floors will require as many as four to five refinishings over the course of their lifespans, and carpeting and vinyl floor solutions often need to be cleaned or completely replaced upon normal wear and tear. Laminates, on the other hand, don’t require this type of extensive maintenance.
Ease of installation
When you’re thinking about a flooring solution, the cost and time required for installation is often a top concern. Laminate flooring can be easily installed over other floors such as wood, tile and linoleum, as most varieties don’t fasten directly to the subfloor.
Laminate floors are also easily installed without a professional. Many brands don’t even require glue or nails because the planks simply snap together.
iStone Floors’ laminate flooring is extremely durable and is engineered to last for decades. Laminates resist moisture, stains, scratching and fading far better than traditional hardwood floors, and if a disaster does happen, laminates are often covered by extensive manufacturer warranties.
Laminate floors are also perfect solutions for high-traffic areas of your home. Even if you have children or pets, your floors are guaranteed to look like new for years. And not only are laminates easy, economical and beautiful flooring solutions, but they also offer an added benefit for homeowners and families with allergies. Unlike carpeting, laminate floors are easy to clean and don’t trap dust and other allergens.
