For your home in Dowers Grove, there are many great flooring materials to satisfy your needs. Learn more from the experts at Floor Coverings International Downers Grove.
How Laminate Is Made
Natural wood, stone, and tile patterns are printed on the laminate with laser printers. There are very few patterns that cannot be replicated on laminate flooring. Typical varieties are plank laminate tiles, tile laminate, and sheet laminate. As a recyclable material, laminate is also an eco-friendly, low impact alternative to harvested wood or stone.
Plank and Tiled Laminate
Plank laminate comes in a rectangular shape, perfectly replicating a traditional wood plank. The design can imitate wood grain, but can also contain the grout patterns of a stone or traditional cobbled tile. Square laminate tiles can exist in a 4×4′ pattern that incorporates 16 unique looking “tiles.” These large laminate sections can snap together easily — allowing the experts at Floor Coverings International Downers Grove to finish the job very quickly.
Sheet laminate is not what it used to be. It resists bubbling and water very well and can be ordered in any style possible. These sheets do require adhesive for installation, but Floor Coverings International Downers Grove has the right tools to finish your project fast.
Designs and Uses
Laminate shines for its versatility and durability. Laminate complements any style and can be used throughout your Downers Grove home. Laminate is a great friend to radiant heated floors and works well in colder climates. It is also remarkably resistant to moisture compared to old-style vinyl. From natural stone, tile, or any wood grain you can imagine, laminate flooring gives you all the appearance with none of the stresses associated with wood, tile, or stone (and at a much lower cost!). From beige-travertine looks to rich oak, laminate flooring can accompany any style throughout the home.
The key to a happy laminate floor is to clean up spills promptly. Maintenance is a breeze with laminate flooring, so as long as you don’t steam clean, vacuum occasionally, and clean with gentle detergent, your laminate floor will keep nice for years.
