Floating Laminate flooring or simulated wood look flooring is perfect for those looking to get a natural looking hardwood floor without the high price tag. It looks much like hardwood flooring and can be much less expensive. At New Orleans Flooring, we offer a variety of laminate flooring and have our own professional installation crews if needed. We have laminate flooring for all budgets and you can expect to find the best choice for your new floor from our store.
The durability of the floating laminate flooring is one of the major reasons many choose this type of floor. Those living with children may want to consider laminate flooring because it works well for high traffic areas. The flooring industry has introduced some laminate flooring with a water-resistant core. One thing to consider about laminate is this floating floor is not waterproof. So, when choosing laminate flooring, the less water or moisture the better on this floor so that it will continue to look the same as when it was installed. Vacuuming or dust mopping with spraying a proper cleaner at a distance works well on cleaning laminate flooring. With the look of hardwood flooring, but added durability, at a lower price, you'll receive a great floor without breaking your budget when you choose laminate flooring.
Our professionally trained staff will help you choose the right flooring. If you are on a budget, laminate flooring can help add value to your home or business instead of carpet. Many home buyers are looking for hardwood flooring, floating laminate flooring or floating wood look vinyl rather than carpet.
Another advantage of floating laminate flooring is the versatility of the installation on an existing subfloor. If the subfloor is dry, clean and level, it really does not matter what material it's made of. If your subfloor is not compatible with a hardwood floor, you can choose a floating laminate instead. Sometimes this happens when the moisture levels are too high or the subfloor is made of a material hardwood cannot be fastened too.
You can choose to install laminate flooring in nearly any areas of your home or business. The only areas it is not compatible with are those prone to excessive moisture, such as laundry rooms, bathrooms and basements. We recommend the use of an upgrade vapor barrier pad to create a moisture-protecting underlayment wherever laminate flooring is installed, which would be according to the manufacturer recommendations. Choosing the right pad for your floating laminate flooring will also make a difference on how your floating laminate flooring sounds when you are walking on it.
