Available in three options, glued, "snap-fit" (floating), and factory pre-glued, laminate offers versatility for any installation. Rugged and durable, laminate is an ideal flooring solution to up-grade the appearance the interior of any home or place of business, providing a new and refreshing look that dramatically improves any room within a short time frame. With laminate`s "snap-fit" design, planks of laminate flooring "click" together requiring no gluing, producing a new "floating floor" that is quiet and beautiful. With a wide variety of designs, colors and grades to choose from, laminate flooring adds value to any home with limited effort required. Designed for novice installation, laminate flooring is easy to install with no special tools required.
Whichever installation method you choose, you can install laminate quickly, completing a whole flooring project in one weekend. This is much easier than the hammering and nailing that goes into hardwood floors, which is a more labor-intensive procedure that generally requires the assistance of professional floor installation companies. Another criticism of laminate was that it didn`t leave much time for spills to be cleaned up, as water would seep in between the seams. These unexpected spills would cause the floors to buckle, thus damaging their natural appearance. With improvements to the laminate and subflooring, this is no longer an issue. As long as spills are cleaned up promptly and aren`t left to sit, the flooring will remain intact. This makes laminate an appropriate option for bathrooms and kitchens where spills are commonplace. For added protection in these areas of the home, it`s recommended that light dabs of glue are added to the tongue of the planks.
