Laminate Flooring

Laminate Flooring Guide

 

Laminate floors are a stylish and budget-friendly option for your home or business. Made from compressed layers of composite wood, this type of flooring is moisture-repellent and strong. It’s also stunningly similar in appearance to natural hardwood thanks to modern advancements in imaging technology. At Migala Carpet One Floor & Home, we’re always thinking forward when it comes to flooring. We’re proud to offer an excellent selection of premium laminate products with the latest performance features.

 

Laminate vs. Hardwood

 

On the surface level, today’s laminate is indistinguishable from real hardwood for most consumers. However, the design of this type of flooring has a few key differences. First, laminate is made from several layers of composite wood adhered together with a textured image of natural hardwood at the surface. The image layer creates an incredibly realistic semblance to natural wood and is protected under a durable wear layer.

Solid wood planks are made from a single piece of genuine hardwood throughout. Engineered hardwood is similar to laminate in that it’s made from layers of wood, but it always features a real hardwood surface on top, rather than a rendering. The layered structure of both engineered wood and laminate planks makes them more resilient to warping from humidity and moisture exposure.

 

Laminate Installation

 

One of the significant advantages of laminate flooring is that it’s quick and easy to install. We offer snap together flooring that easily clicks into place. There’s no need to nail or glue-down the floor, and you can walk on it the same day it’s put in. You can install your laminate floors in a variety of places, including living rooms, kitchens, hallways, entryways, basements, and much more.
