An Introduction to Laminate Floors

Laminate floors are quickly becoming the flooring of choice for active families and homeowners. In fact, in just a single decade, laminate flooring has established itself in South Africa and the rest of the world as one of the foremost choices of floor coverings available.

Its widespread popularity can be largely attributed to the extensive array of available design options and its relatively low cost when compared to that of solid wood or stone flooring.

If you love the gorgeous look of a wood or stone floor but are worried about high traffic that can ruin expensive floors, laminate flooring is probably the best option on the market.

Laminate floor tiles and planks are coated with a heavy duty, hardwearing aluminum oxide finish that protects the underlying pattern from being damaged. More importantly, this means that the floor is able to stand up to high foot traffic levels without wearing through, thus providing its owner with many years of use without the need to worry about costly maintenance. In this regard, laminate can be reliably considered as being 'maintenance free' flooring.

Laminate flooring is available in planks, strips and tiles. Traditionally, it is glued into place, but in the past few years manufacturers have introduced some incredible glue less and pre-glued formats that cut installation time in half. And, if you choose the glue less floor, you can even remove the floor and take it with you when you move.

There are other features and benefits that attract hoards of homeowners to laminated flooring, one is easy installation. With so many manufacturers competing in the laminate flooring market there have been numerous advancements made with tongue and groove type fastenings that make installing laminate floors an easy, even simple, task. From click lock to snap together joints, such systems do away with messy glues and are therefore perfect for those that prefer the Do It Yourself approach. What's more, a laminate floor can be installed over just about any type of sub floor, including tiles or concrete.

One of the few disadvantages to laminate flooring is that it cannot be refinished, sanded or stripped. However, most manufacturers back up their laminate products with a lengthy warranty which will sometimes extend to lifetime, however, floor buyers are advised to carefully check the terms of any warranties offered in order to ascertain exactly what is covered and what isn't. Typically, and at the very least, one should expect a laminate floor to be supplied with a warranty period of no less than 15 years that covers premature wear, staining and fading.
