With the kind of unexpected weather one can expect in Lumberton NC, sunny one minute and pouring rain the next, you need floors that can keep up! This kind of weather can make protecting your floors difficult. The answer that you may be looking for is in laminate flooring. It is resistant to many of the things that can discolor and stain other flooring materials. Here are some benefits you can find when making the switch to laminate!

Durable: Protected by a tough external layer, a laminate floor is much stronger, and more scratch-resistant, impact-resistant and longer lasting than any hardwood, vinyl, or carpet. It’s virtually resistant to dogs, cats, kids and even high heels! Hardwood floors, on the other hand, are subject to wood grain staining, fading in sunlight, and can scratch and dent easily.

Easy to clean and maintain: Laminate’s superior stain and moisture-resistant surface coating offers a lot of protection against stains, fading, and moisture damage which makes spills and other messes easy to handle. You won’t need any wax or polish. It will just require a dust or vacuum, followed by a wipe with a damp cloth or mop.

Easy to install: This is a huge benefit to the avid DIY’er. There’s no need for any special glues because putting it down “is a snap”, with the tongue and groove click systems you literally snap it together. It also doesn’t matter what your subfloor is because laminate floors do not need to be glued or nailed down. Moreover, laminate floors are easy to un-install and replace quickly and easily when it’s time for a style update.

Pricing: Not only is laminate flooring generally less expensive than other hard surface floors to start with, but when its durability and longevity are considered, it becomes a particularly economical choice. The sheer abundance of choice, that is not restricted by price, is truly one of the strongest advantages of laminate flooring.

Variety of styles: A variety of colors and patterns enable you to match the floor with the exact mood and style of your room, whether it’s rich and elegant or cool and contemporary. You will be surprised by the availability and quality of today’s laminate floor styles. There is also a wide variety of high-resolution tree patterns and laminate flooring textures to choose from that can mimic real wood.

Environmentally friendly: For those trying to look out for the environment, you will be happy to know that laminate flooring is made from wood and wood by-products, and does not involve the harvesting of rare or endangered trees.

Laminate flooring is enjoyed in millions of U.S. homes for good reason. The price, durability and ease when it is installed, makes laminate a great addition to any home. Best of all, it will protect your house, and your investment in your flooring, from the constantly changing weather.
