The perfect alternative to traditional hardwood, laminate flooring is always enduring and always in style. Laminate flooring is available in hundreds of realistic textures, bringing endless possibilities to your busiest rooms.
At Gold River Carpet One Floor & Home of Rancho Cordova, CA, we can help you enhance your home’s style and function with our wide range of laminate flooring options. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering installing a laminate floor.
Laminate flooring has certainly changed over the last few years. Our laminate planks are primarily manufactured with multiple layers of dense and resilient synthetic material. Its sturdy plastic veneer, wooden core, and synthetic backing create a high-performance plank that resists heavy moisture and wear.
Our Laminate brands include:
When it comes to choosing the perfect flooring for you, the options can certainly become overwhelming. Of course, if you are looking for flooring that looks and feels like hardwood but is easy to maintain, both laminate and vinyl will offer this. Of course, while we’d like to say one is better than the other, both laminate and vinyl look exceptional in your space. First, when choosing between the two, consider your lifestyle and your needs.
Laminate vs Vinyl
Both laminate flooring and vinyl flooring look like your favorite hardwoods. Each flooring type can boldly go where natural hardwood is ill-advised thanks to water-resistant layers. Finally, caring for these floors is a breeze: weekly mopping and sweeping are all that’s necessary to keep your laminate or vinyl looking their best.
Where laminate beats vinyl:
While most laminate flooring on the market isn’t waterproof, all laminate is water-resistant. If minor spills are wiped up promptly, your laminate flooring will last a lifetime without any long-term damage.
At Carpet One, you can find a variety of waterproof flooring options, like our exclusive Mirror Lake Performance laminate. This innovative product is designed for homes with small children, pets, and active lifestyles.
While laminate is easier to install than most flooring products, a professional installation is highly recommended. Keep in mind that your subfloor will need to be tested for moisture before your laminate installation. Once you’ve tested for moisture, your installer will go over which type of underlay works best with your existing subfloor and moldings. Laminate flooring installation is a precise process, and ample attention to every detail is required.
Your laminate flooring can be installed in a variety of areas within your home, including:
