Since the laminate flooring is usually made of boards, one should make sure to always choose flooring whose board is very thick. This will help to protect the original floor of the room as well as help one feel comfortable while walking on the new floor with the laminate. The board thickness should be of measurements that are between 8 and 12mm. With such thickness, the board is expected to feel more comfortable and at the same time raise the floor though with few millimeters. The laminate flooring in question should be an easy board. Although you might not be the one to install it yourself, one should always make sure to pick those floorings that are easy to install so that the interior designer installing them does not spend a lot of time in your house and at the same time avoid any changes that may need to be done on the actual floor.
Originating as a company making lacquered boards for the shipbuilding industry, Alloc started production of high pressure laminate flooring in 1992. In 1996 it introduced a mechanical locking system that allows the laminate boards to be laid without glue. Originally, most laminate floors replicated only the most in-demand wood floors. As laminate grew in popularity however, other looks were introduced, including highly realistic stone and marble. Unlike solid wood or engineered wood flooring products which are usually nailed or glued to the sub floor, laminate flooring floats on the sub floor. The individual strips or planks of many laminate systems snap together while other systems do require the application of small amount of adhesive along the joints. Unlike traditional hardwood floors, laminate floors do not require periodic sanding and refinishing. The top protective layer is all that`s needed. Unlike hardwood flooring, there is no need to polish your laminate floor. You can simply clean it with wet cloth and vacuum cleaner to dust out the dirt.
