Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor covering which has been designed to look like a traditional wood flooring or sometimes stone flooring. This style of flooring has been a very popular choice for DIY enthusiasts or tradesmen. Key benefits are that it’s a cheaper alternative to real wood, there’s always a wide range of ‘real wood’ and patterned or textured effects available to choose from. If you have a bit of know-how, most DIY home renovators can install laminate flooring.
Yes, we have an option of two laminate floor underlay options available for you to purchase upon placing your order, for more information on which underlay to choose click here.
Since laminate is made from pressed wood, it is more durable and resists scratches, moisture and wear and tear. Laminate flooring is also easier to clean.
The answer is yes! Laminate flooring is water resistant from top to bottom. This means that if you get any spills on your floor, waterproof or water-resistant floor systems do not allow liquids to seep through the interlocks, stopping potential mould or mildew growth beneath your flooring.
All of our laminate flooring ranges are sutable for kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, spare rooms - Most rooms in your house would be fine to fit laminate to.
Laminate flooring can be laid on various floor surfaces. That's the beauty of it! Once you have determined that your concrete floor surface is not damp and free of debris, it should be absolutely fine to fit your laminate flooring. The concrete floor must also be free of debris or cracks, otherwise the tiles will eventually sag into the gap.
Laminate flooring is most definitely suitable for pets! As we know very well, pets can sometimes wreak havoc on your floooring. Scuffs, scratches and stains can easily occur. This is why we suggest Laminate or Vinyl flooring over carpet for high-traffic areas. As long as your pets nails are kept short enough, it's usually not an issue and laminate can be quite cheap and easy to replace if needs be.
Laminate flooring is ideal for underfloor heating usage and can be laid over most heating systems including "wet" or "dry" underfloor heating types. This product does work very well as the heat can easily permeate the thin layer of laminate wood. However, it is reccommended that laminates or vinyls should not be heated to above 26°C. Alsso the underfloor heating should be restricted for use.
According to NALFA it certainly is eco-friendly. Laminate flooring is also an environmentally friendly consideration when a homeowner's interest is a living area with fewer allergens. Laminate flooring is free of solvents, preservatives, and other chemicals that can agitate allergies and asthma.
Click-system is just as the name suggests, it clicks together for ease of installation. For this to be possible, each of the laminate planks are milled with tongues and grooves, which click easily into place. This allows the laminate to 'float' over the sub floor without the need for glue or nails.
