It’s been a few weeks since we’ve gotten the chance to blog here at All Flortec. It’s been a busy summer of installing wood floors, repairing subfloors, refinishing rails, deck staining, and installing laminate floors, among the other flooring services we offer in New Jersey and New York. But we are happy to find a few minutes to spare so we can write our readers, customers, and prospective customers who might have questions about what we offer or, as is the case if you’ve clicked on today’s blog, questions regarding flooring options more generally.

Key Benefits Of Laminate Floor
Now that we’ve told you a little bit about our own wood flooring company, it’s time to dive into the meat and potatoes of today’s blog; keep reading if you are interested in learning about a few of the many benefits of laminate flooring!
Seeing as how we are experts in this particular benefit, the installation of laminate floor is a remarkably quick and easy process. For instance, we can lay down hundreds of square feet of laminate flooring in just a few days. While laminate flooring of yester-year entailed the need to glue strips together, modern laminate flooring options feature lock-in functionality which makes the pieces fit together as easily as puzzle pieces.
Made of particleboard, laminate flooring represents a more affordable option than traditional hardwood flooring. When remodeling a room or your entire home, homeowners are faced with prioritizing improvements, as it’s seldom the case that our customers have a practically limitless budget for the remodel. Going with laminate flooring will help you save money for other tasks on your priority list — while ensuring you still have a beautiful, durable floor that will last years!
If you are anything like most of our customers, one of your chief concerns will have to do with how easy the floor will be to clean. Rest easy, laminate floors are quite easy to clean with a broom or a vacuum, depending on your preference. Every so often it’s a good idea to give the old mop a once-over with some laminate floor cleaner. Additionally, you’ll never need to wax a laminate floor, so there’s another benefit for you1
One of the best things about laminate floor is that its appearance is quite versatile; you can easily replace the look of genuine materials such as stone, wood, or other natural looks. While real hardwood can have imperfections (and to be fair, that’s part of the charm for some homeowners), laminate flooring will never have any defects, which means that no pieces will be tossed out or re-engineered for any reason. The consistency of appearance makes a big deal for a lot of our customers who end up going with laminate flooring.
Wood can be warped, scratched, and bent out of place. This is in contrast to laminate floor, which is practically immune to scratches, dents, and the kind of wear and tear issues you’ll need to deal with if you go with hardwood flooring. Because laminate floors feature a layer for wear which is designed to protect the “photographic” layer underneath, laminate resists stains too. We think that is pretty great!
Laminate flooring has a bit of give to it, so it’s a bit more comfortable to walk on with your bare feet than typical hardwood floors. That’s just one more “pro” in the court of laminate flooring!
