Laminate Floors Add A Touch Of Class

Laminate floors are available in innumerable designs and finishes. Any room of the house can have laminate floors and it is very easy to maintain. These floors have three layers, the backing layer, the core layer, and the wear layer. The first layer, that is, the backing layer allows the other layers to have strength and durability. The core layer has high density fiber board and the last layer, that is, the wear layer provides surface protection with aluminum oxide.

This ingredient provides the protection to the outer layer. Nowadays, most of the designs are computer generated, and some of the most stylish, modern designs have come in the market this way. Laminate floors are available in different plank widths.

Various square tile sizes are available too. As mentioned earlier laminate floors are ideal for those who want the style and look of hard wood floors but cannot afford the price. Real wood floors are expensive and most will not be able to afford it. These floors are very durable, and they have a hard surface that is resistant to scratch or other types of damage.

The laminated designs do not fade with usage and are resistant to burns as well. Laminated floors are quite easy to install in the house. It does not take too much time either. These floors can simply be glued over the concrete or vinyl floor. Some laminate floors require very little or no glue. Most laminate floorings use the tongue and groove edges.

This allows the installation to be a very easy process. The owner can do it himself, if he is handy with tools and measurements. The planks have to be cut according to the size of the room, or according to the size required. A couple of tools like clamp straps, cut saw, tapping blocks, measuring tape is required. Measurement has to be accurate, other the laminated strip will be ruined apart from ending up with a very uneven and uncouth floor.

Patience comes in handy when installing laminate floorings, as small details can test ones patience. Cleaning and maintenance of the laminated floors are not at all difficult. It can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth or mop. Vinegar and water solution is very effective for cleaning, one can also use the solution recommended by the manufacturer. Detergents are not recommended.
