For homeowners looking for hardwood, stone, or tile floors, our experts at Floor Coverings International of Charleston can help you get started in your search. However, an alternative option for you and your home could be laminate flooring, which combines the beauty of hardwood, stone, and tile with a few other benefits. Let’s take a look at some of our customers’ top pros of laminate flooring.
Laminate Flooring Looks Incredible
Two of our most popular laminate flooring surfaces are laminate wood and laminate tile. Both look remarkably like the real thing. High definition printing technology has enabled our partner flooring manufacturers to produce incredibly detailed floors made to emulate everything from marble and porcelain tile to red oak and reclaimed wood. There are literally thousands of styles and patterns from which to choose. Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International of Charleston can show you all the varieties with a free in-home estimate.
Laminate Flooring is Extremely Durable
Think for a second what type of damage could be done to your floor. Unexpected spills, sunlight fading, dog claw scratching, and humidity are just some of the daily wear and tear that floors endure. Laminate flooring is invulnerable to all the things we just mentioned. Because of its composition (made of pressed wood), laminate flooring is specifically engineered to withstand damage. It’s also easy to clean. You’ll just need to occasionally sweep and mop.
Laminate Flooring is Less Expensive
Authentic hardwood, tile, and stone floors will typically be more expensive than laminate (for both materials and installation). This is often a huge selling point for our customers. If you also factor in the possible damage you could avoid, laminate flooring can be even more of a money saver.
