What is Laminate Flooring?

If you’re in the market for flooring that rivals the look of hardwood or ceramic, but doesn’t cost as much, then consider laminate for your home or office. With quick and efficient installation and extremely durable wear-surfaces, laminate flooring has become one of the industry’s largest categories in recent years.

Benefits of choosing the correct underlayment

Before installing your laminate flooring, our flooring professionals educate you on the benefits of installing correct underlayment and help you choose the right one for your project. A low pile, high density foam pad (usually made of polyethylene or polypropylene), is placed underneath the laminate for cushion, support, and noise reduction. Since laminate flooring is a “floating floor,” (meaning is not glued or nailed down), the right underlayment allows the laminate to move freely without the worry of damage or buckling caused by friction or excessive movement.
