Laminate Flooring Installation

The Pros and The Cons of one of the most popular flooring covering for homes. 

Laminate Floor Covering 

Laminate flooring installation emerged in the 1970's as an alternative to hardwood flooring installation.  Since its invention, the quality and technology within the flooring itself has made impressive strides. Today, laminate coverings are known for durability, easy upkeep, and a very broad selection of colors and textures. 

Designers and Engineers continue to dedicate countless hours on creating improvements for laminate. Perfection is a hard -- if not impossible -- feat to tackle. We're going to outline some of the most prominent pros and cons that we recognize with laminate flooring installation.

Pros

• Extremely easy to clean and stain resistant
• Durability stands up to foot and paw traffic
• Non-porous surface prevents allergy flares
• Typically quite affordable

Cons

• Not well-suited for environments prone to moisture   
• Doesn't increase home value in the long run
• Lower-end products can have a "fake" appearance

The Benefits of Laminate Flooring 

Ease of Maintenance 

Laminate flooring is easily one of the most low-maintenance flooring types. Grab yourself a vacuum, broom, or slightly damp mop and you're good to go. Better yet, check out some of the top laminate floor cleaning products.

Great for Paws and Allergies

Laminate's solid, non-porous surface stands up to foot traffic and pets. The non-porous quality prevents dust and allergens from penetrating the surface. Just watch out for sharp corners and pieces that can dig deep enough to snag the surface.

Affordable & Aesthetic

Laminate has hundreds of thousands colors and textures to choose from. Whether it's wood floor lookalikes or textured greys, the options are absolutely endless. The best part? Prices start around $2 per square foot.

The Cons of Laminate Flooring 

Prone to Moisture

When it comes to bathrooms and basements, moisture levels are higher versus living rooms or kitchens. Laminate products without locking mechanisms or improperly installed laminate can allow moisture to seep into the seams and particle board core. In turn, not making it the best choice for areas prone to water damage.

Looking to Add Value to Your Home? 

Laminate looks great, but it doesn't have the clout that natural wood flooring or tile has. Though much more appealing than carpet or lower grade laminates, not much real estate value will be added to your home. Home owners see between a 70-80% ROI reflected in the sale price of your home with wood flooring.  

Not As "Luxurious" as Other Floor Coverings

When produced, the texture and character is 'printed' onto the material.  To expedite the process, the desired pattern repeats. In higher grade products, the boards repeat in groups of 5-10. In cheap flooring products, it repeats in as low as 3 different patterns. As a result, the final product can appear fake.

Floorscapes came to our rescue in February 2024 after a major bathroom leak. They were referred to us by another local vendor. We stopped in Floorscapes' Twinsburg showroom and met with Brooke. We were impressed. She helped us pick out a PVT and set up an appointment for a measurement with Jim Love (owner) for the following day .  He was wonderful. Jim offered options and gave us a quote the same day. We were so pleased, we signed on immediately. It should be noted that we previously sought out quotes from other vendors and NONE offered the stellar customer service as did the Floorscapes' crew. Within 2 days, the crew was at our home hard at work. What a team! On time, respectful of property and professional. Shout out to John, James, Jim, Jon, Brianna, Brooke and other team members not mentioned. They completed the project in five days and we are delighted. We highly recommend Floorscapes. You will not be disappointed.
