There are a range of pros when choosing laminate flooring and these include:
- Laminate flooring is relatively easy to install, especially when using the newer laminate flooring which has a click lock design, rather than having to glue separate pieces together.
- Laminate offers an incredibly durable surface because it hardly ever gets scratched or dented because of its wear layer which is designed to offer protection from high heeled shoes and pet claws! In fact some manufacturers offer a 10 years or more warranty on the wear layer. At Burgess Flooring we can advise you on the manufacturers to choose and how to secure a good warranty on your laminate flooring.
- Laminate flooring is fantastic for kitchens, bathrooms and other rooms which see a lot of moisture.
- Laminate flooring is very easy to clean. It usually only requires a sweep or vacuum and a mop every so often. Laminate doesn’t cling on to dust and dirt like carpets can so it is a fantastic flooring product for families with young children, families with pets and people who are busy. It is also very easy to clean stains, although stains rarely have a chance to make an appearance on this type of flooring.
At Burgess Flooring we can fit laminate flooring in your home with ease. We have worked with laminate for years and can very quickly install the underlay and the laminate for you. We are conscious of the fact that relaying flooring is very disruptive so we always aim to be quick yet provide an excellent finish and we always clear up after ourselves.
One of the major bonuses of engineered wood is that it is almost always more cost effective than real wood flooring and is quicker to install because of its uniformity.
This product is also very strong and durable because of the compression of layers. It can be nailed directly into joists without the need for sub-flooring and works in basement areas and on concrete.
We have all the need-to-know knowledge on engineered wood, can advise our clients on the type of finish available, explain the process of manufacture in more detail and can recommend suppliers and products to our customers.
A pro for solid wood floors are the fact that they have a thicker, or deeper, wear surface than other wooden floors. Therefore, despite the fact it is generally more expensive than other types of flooring, real wooden floors last a long period of time. In fact, it is not uncommon for homes built centuries ago to still have their original wooden floors in place and in use today.
