Laminate flooring may not have been around as long as hardwood or stone floors, but it has a lot to offer to the world of flooring. Made with a mix of synthetic and natural, recycled materials, laminate flooring is covered with an attractive, decorative coating upon completion. Compared to other floor materials, laminate is a much more affordable and versatile option, allowing homeowners to be creative with their floor design without breaking the bank.
At EF Marburger Fine Flooring, our laminate flooring resembles genuine wood, so much so that it could be confused for real hardwood floor. If you want the look of wood for the price of laminate, the choice is simple. Laminate flooring is also more durable than other floor options, and is very easy to install. Whereas real wood can fade from UV rays, laminate flooring is unaffected by the sun and will never fade or change colors. This added benefit translates to dollars saved and maintenance time spared.
Speaking of maintenance, installing laminate flooring is a clean, stress-free process. No glue, staples or nails are required to lay laminate down on any surface in your home. Known as “floating floors”, laminate flooring can occasionally be installed atop existing flooring (carpet not withstanding), which means the job will be less invasive and more time-efficient.
