Laminate Flooring Guide

A beautiful alternative to traditional hardwood or stone, modern laminate flooring is truly inspiring. While laminate floors were once considered a budget-friendly basic, modern innovation has given us endlessly sturdy and stylish products that are anything but the last resort.

 

At Veterans Carpet One Floor & Home of Denver, CO, we can help you navigate the evolving world of laminate flooring. We proudly serve clients throughout Southern Denver, Highlands Ranch, and surrounding communities. If you’re longing for change, consider our laminate flooring collection.

 

Laminate vs Hardwood

 

Laminate flooring might look like your favorite hardwood, but its construction is 100% manufactured. Unlike hardwood, laminate flooring has a unique layered construction that remains consistent across styles and brands.

The top layer, called the wear layer, is solid and durable, as it resists scratches, scuffs, and other surface blemishes. As a result, laminate flooring will not need to be finished and refinished like hardwood. Underneath the wear layer is the decorative layer, which includes a natural wood visual. This decorative layer provides laminate with its natural appearance.

 

Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

 

Not all laminate flooring is alike. Your waterproof laminate flooring was expressly designed to keep all moisture from seeping in. This is important to consider, since all laminate flooring has moisture resistance, but only certain products are genuinely “waterproof,” meaning your planks won’t shrink or expand when moistened. We carry a wide array of waterproof laminate options, including those made by Mirror Lake Performance Flooring.

 

Laminate Flooring Installation

 

Although laminate flooring is often touted as a "do it yourself" product, we strongly recommend considering a professional installation. The process involves more than simply clicking planks together. Moisture-resting your subfloor is a vital part of the process and will go a long way in ensuring the best results. It’s also important to consider your unique space and whether moldings and baseboards are necessary.
