Benefits of Laminate Flooring

Why Homeowners are Installing Laminate Floors
In addition to its convenient and easy installation process, laminate provides benefits including:
Cost. Many families understand the importance of staying within a budget. Laminate is a cost efficient material that is priced lower than other traditional floor coverings. The cost of laminate tiles or planks ranges from $1.00-$10.00 per square foot.
Durability. The top coat of laminate is designed to protect against scratches, scuffs and dirt and has the ability to withstand the messy and unpredictable behaviors of children. When cared for properly, laminate can last anywhere from 15-25 years.
Maintenance. A majority of parents are on a tight schedule and don’t have the time available to maintain high end floor coverings. Laminate floors are easily maintained by routine vacuuming and mopping. Spills and dirt are also easily removed.
Health. Many parents consider carpeting to be the best floor covering for children because of its soft and comfortable feel. What parents often do not recognize is that carpets also absorb dirt, spills and odors, trapping allergens and filth. Laminate does not mold and will not retain dust, pollen or pet dander. By installing laminate, parents are able to create a healthy and safe home environment for their children.
