Laminate is a classic flooring choice that’s long been considered a budget-friendly, durable alternative to hardwood. Today, laminate floors are unbelievably tough, waterproof, and they can mirror both natural wood and tile. In fact, our Mirror Lake waterproof laminate collection has the strongest finish on the market, making it incredibly resilient to scratches, dents, and moisture. Plus, it’s still affordable, easy to install, and simple to care for.
At J.B. Short Carpet One Floor & Home, we know beautiful flooring. Our friendly team can help you find the best laminate floor for your home or business. We proudly provide products and laminate installation services to Vass, North Carolina, and the surrounding region.
Laminate looks indistinguishable from natural hardwood floors from the surface, but these two flooring options are built very differently. Whereas solid wood floors are made from a single piece of premium hardwood, such as maple, oak, hickory, birch, walnut, or mahogany, laminate planks are produced by gluing together layers of composite wood. At the surface, flooring manufacturers place a high-definition rendering of real hardwood that’s carefully protected by a durable finish. This layer is an image created through advanced photo and printing technology. The advantage of laminate over hardwood is that it can handle moisture and foot traffic better, and it’s cheaper.
Today we offer 100% waterproof laminate flooring brands, such as our Mirror Lake line. These floors can be installed in a variety of moisture-prone areas, including your bathroom, kitchen, and basement. While natural wood floors tend to swell and warp in humid, water-prone settings, our waterproof laminate floors are able to handle these conditions.
Installing laminate floors is simple and fast. Most products are available with a simple click-lock installation method that doesn’t require slow-drying adhesives. Click-lock floors usually “float” over the subfloor, and are easy to repair and replace. We also have glue-down laminate options, which are ideal in more high-traffic settings. Laminate is perfect for anywhere in your home, as well as light-use commercial businesses like downtown offices.
