With the damage of Hurricane Matthew still looming over the city, many people are considering remodeling and repairing their homes. One of the number one and most costly repairs includes damage to your flooring, which can seem like a nightmare after you receive an initial estimate.

For this reason, you should consider installing laminate flooring in your home. With Creative Stone, there are many pros to consider when investing in laminate flooring. Here are some of the reasons why this flooring may be best for you.

Versatile Designs: Do you love the look of hardwood flooring in the home? What about natural stone and marble? Today, the process of production for laminate floors can offer a variety of different looks for your home to fit your specific needs.

Easy Clean-up: Ever consider how expensive it becomes to clean a carpet after your two-year-old spills purple grape juice in the middle of the living room floor? Or how time consuming it becomes to maintain the overall shine in your natural hardwood? With laminate floors, the clean-up process can be a breeze. The wear layer of the flooring provides a protective seal that allows for protection from most stains and spills.

Mold and Mildew: Like the issues with hurricane Matthew, there were many NC residents who had to tear out their flooring, or either move due to the threat of growing mold after the high waters covered the insides of their homes. Laminate is a natural resistant to mold, leaving you worry free and unconsciously more healthy.

Convenience: While hardwood and carpet can not only be costly, but also time consuming, laminate flooring can be installed, depending on the size of the room, in as little as a day and a half.

Cost: The biggest pro to consider is definitely cost. While installing a new hardwood floor can range between hundreds, to thousands of dollars, laminate flooring can be as little as .25 cent per plank.

With various choices in flooring, considering laminate could be a very beneficial choice! If you’re considering an install of laminate flooring in your home, please give us a call at (910) 491-1225 or visit us online at http://creativeston.wpengine.com/!

As a homeowner, you do whatever you can to protect the investment that you have in your home. One of the key components to any home is the flooring. Whether you have hardwood flooring, carpet, tile or laminate flooring, you want to to take care of it as best as you can so that it will last for a long time. Unfortunately, very few parts to a home take a beating more than your flooring. Laminate flooring tends to be a cheaper flooring option than some of the others, and it can be more vulnerable to damage also. The team at Magnus Anderson is here to help you with your laminate flooring issues.

Common issues that happen with laminate flooring can include warping, chipping, mold, mildew, and scratches. Scratches have the potential to be an easy fix. You can buy a laminate flooring repair kit at many home improvement stores, and remedy that issue pretty quickly using wax crayons or putty. However, because homeowners tend to put laminate flooring in rooms of the home where easy floor cleanup is a must, like kitchens and bathrooms, many of the common problems that arise are a direct result of contact with water.

The majority of laminate flooring buckling or warping happens because of water damage. It is imperative that when water or other liquids spill onto your laminate flooring that you clean it up immediately. We cannot stress that enough. Many times, mold and mildew can inhabit a bathroom floor after a long period of time because of water falling out from the bath or shower, and people not drying the floor immediately. Unfortunately, while it is possible to save laminate flooring in that situation, it is a complicated process and not cheap to do. Most homeowners will choose to replace the damaged laminate flooring in that case.

Magnus Anderson specializes in flooring options. If you have laminate flooring that you want to replace, our knowledgeable team is ready to help you choose the perfect flooring option for you. Come visit us in our Fayetteville, North Carolina showroom, or give us a call today at (910) 483-0468.
