A great selection of laminate floors!

Laminate floors were introduced to the United States in the 1980s. Since then, customer demand has called for manufacturers to develop more products that are stronger and closer to real wood in appearance. Today’s laminate floors can have beveled edges and a hand scraped finish designed to look like hardwood flooring, but with all the durability of laminate.

Today’s laminate floors are available in a large variety of wood grains and tones. Most manufacturers today use a click technology (tongue and groove) making installation easy for any homeowner. Laminate floors are often referred to as “Floating Floors” due to the way that they are installed. A foam underlayment is rolled out prior to installation, to reduce noise and provide cushioning; some manufacturers pre-attach the foam underlayment to the back of the panel.

It is important to remember that all floors are susceptible to scratching and denting. Laminate floors will have significantly more dent resistance than hardwood floors due to the composition of the product.
