Laminate flooring is a great alternative to wood flooring, and often a cost effective solution. The appearance of modern laminate is nearly indistinguishable from its hardwood counterparts.
Carpet Designs Unlimited carries all the most popular and dependable brands of laminate. Provenza, Bella Cera, Quick Step, Nuvelle, Aqua Lock and the Freedom Collection are some of our choice brands. Laminate flooring installation is an art for Carpet Designs Unlimited. Our skilled technicians make sure that you will have the best looking results and enjoy your new “wood” floor for many years to come.
Laminate flooring is a product that is made up of multiple layers. Underneath laminate, a thin pad that is both a moisture and sound barrier is generally installed. The bottom most layer of the laminate itself is a backing that is designed to help prevent the boards from warping. Above the backing is an inner core that is made from high-density fiberboard that increases the durability of the laminate. The next layer is the layer on which the high-resolution image of wood appears. This layer can have a texture applied to it to further enhance the look of real wood. These images run from exotic to traditional, from intricately detailed to sleek and smooth. We have many different looks to choose from. The last layer is a wear layer that protects the design from fading, scratches, and damage from everyday wear.
There is no comparison to the durability of laminate. Kids, pets and cocktail parties are no threat to a laminate’s finish.
