Searlait Lemercier Laminate Flooring August 03, 2018 00:43:40
Traditionally, laminate floors used adhesive glues to bond the edges of the floorboards together. Although effective, the glues could be messy and lost their tackiness over time. Also, this method included an extra step where an additional rubber sealant would be used over the cracks in order to prevent moisture from seeping in. Newer laminate choices use a tongue-and-groove installation method that allows the floorboards to interlock with each other like a puzzle. This method is simple and efficient and has the boards "floating" over the underlayment. To add to the ease of installation, laminate can be installed just about anywhere, including over existing floors and above or below grade applications, such as basements. Hardwood on the other hand, can only be installed in above grade areas.
The lamination being installed should be of multiple layers. It is because of these multiple layers that the laminate in question is able to last long. The top most layer should have the capability of resisting any scratches that may come to be as a result of chair dragging or any other object that may scratch the floor. The top layer should also be made of a material which is easy to clean. Nobody wants a floor surface that is hard to clean and it is for this reason that one should consider choosing a laminate flooring whose top surface is easy to clean and resistant to stains. For a laminate flooring to be considered of top quality, the layer should have some images on it which bring out the clear color of the laminate. This feature should also be of high definition to ensure that it continues the aspect of decorating the room in question. The images should be of a pattern that relates with the surrounding wall. The color of the images on the laminate flooring should also be a color that perfectly matches the dominant color of the room, wall.
