There are many advantages to having laminate flooring in your home. Not only is it cost-effective, but it’s also easy to install, adaptable and gives a great finish. Don’t forget that laminate floors Austin are durable too. We, at Renaissance Contracting, think they’re a great addition to just about any room in your home.
Ease of Installation
Renaissance Contracting, LLC can lay out your laminate flooring Austin with ease. Laminate floors, not surprisingly, are easy to install. Many laminate floors have a ‘glueless’ option available. This allows the board to be connected by a tongue and groove design. It clicks together to form a fully fastened surface. Flooring professionals like us can easily install this type of laminate floor design. It can usually be done in a day or two. Many of these types of floors come with a lifetime “locking system warranty.” Check with us, of course, before purchasing your flooring and we can help you determine if your new laminate flooring Austin comes with the warranty.
The glued laminate needs to have the joints glued together. This makes for a very strong floor. The time is a little bit more with this type of laminate than with the glueless click, but it might be worth it for the durability factor.
The final type of installation is a pre-glued option. We would have to soften the glue that has already been applied to the joints. It may need to be moistened first, but it’s not a problem for professionals like us. We’ve seen it all and laminate flooring doesn’t scare us.
Fits in with Almost any Sub-floor
Laminate flooring Austin can be laid over just about any sub-floor except, of course, carpet. You would need to pull up the carpet before laying your laminate floor. However, you’d have to get rid of the carpet for just about any other flooring install anyway. We would just need to make sure a moisture barrier was in place and water prevention measures were taken. Then, it can be installed at any grade. The good news – laminate flooring installation usually takes away the need to remove previous installed floors which saves you time and money.
Laminate Floors are Versatile
Today’s laminate floors can be made to look like just about any type of wood, complete with wood grains inserted in the design. You have to be up close to know for sure that it’s not hardwood. That means you can get a hardwood look for a portion of the hardwood price. Laminates can also appear like natural stone and ceramic flooring materials. So, if you love the look of stone or ceramic tile but prefer the cost effectiveness of laminate, you can have the best of both worlds.
Laminate Flooring is Easy to Clean
Laminate floors are scratch-resistant and easy to clean. It’s extremely durable. However, everyday dirt and grit can cause it to appear less than perfect. You should regularly dust mop or vacuum laminate floors with a soft brush or wood floor attachment to pick up the dust and grit. A slightly damp mop can be used for spot cleaning the laminate floor Austin.
You should clean liquid spills as soon as they occur with a cloth or sponge. Don’t allow excess fluids to remain on your floor or it could stain or damage it.
