For those of you who are wondering what a laminate floor is, laminates are a combination of special resins (melamine), a print film and paper layer, a fiber core in the middle, and a resin filled backer sheet that are all fused together into one solid piece.
Although they appear similar to a Formica countertop, laminate floors are really much more durable and scratch resistant. Due to its construction and components, laminate flooring will not stain or fade from sunlight, and the finish is extremely impact resistant. These floors have precision tongue and groove edges for securing the planks together, and they can be installed over most types of subfloors.
One of the really exciting things with laminate flooring is that manufacturers have been able to recreate some of the old historic hardwood flooring styles, like rough-sawn barn oak, American chestnut, knotty pine, and several others. These floors can really add to the charm and feel of a room without breaking your pocketbook. Manufacturers also offer laminate floors in ceramic and stone tile patterns.
At Variety Floor Coverings, our goal is to make sure you are 100% satisfied with the floors we match you with. We also provide an excellent and knowledgeable staff as well as experienced installers who can help make your flooring experience the very best. We serve the Lowcountry from Hilton Head and Bluffton, to Okatie and Sun City. We invite you to come in to see why so many of our customers come back again.
Although it acts and feels like hardwood, it is about half the price and is even less expensive than carpeting. It won’t fade in the sun, the upper wear layer of melamine withstands scratching, and it will even resist stains. Best of all, the tongue and groove edge construction makes laminate flooring installation easier than installing hardwood, and since it it is considered a floating floor and doesn’t need to be physically attached to a subfloor, no glue, mastic, nails or screws are needed either.
Laminate flooring is an excellent solid hardwood alternative, as it bears a striking resemblance to the real thing. From the stain color, to the species look and grain patterns, you’ll truly think you’re walking on real wood floors. It’s durable, stable, and offers excellent performance, even under some of the busiest homes. Additionally, warranties average about 25 years, so the lifespan is good for those who aren’t looking to refloor their homes anytime in the near future.
