Cincinnati Flooring - Laminate
Does the number of flooring choices have you floored? Over the past few years, another option has gained ground. An increasing number of Americans are
choosing laminate for their floors, an option that's been in the United States for less than 10 years. Laminate, or engineered, flooring is durable, easier to install and
maintain than other floor coverings, simple to replace and, at $2 to $5 a square foot, costs less than many other surfaces. Although laminate floors look like wood,
and more recently, tile, stone and marble, they're actually photographs attached to a sturdy core backing and topped with a durable sealant.

Cincinnati homeowners want a durable, attractive and cost effective flooring option when renovating their homes and kitchens. Laminate flooring usually resist
scratches, dents,chipping and according to manufacturers, they resist stains and won't fade.  It's perfect for heavy-traffic areas, particularly if children or pets and the
kitchen remains the most popular room for laminate flooring.

Some of the newest laminate flooring products don't even require glue. The tongue-and-groove planks simply lock into place and can even be placed over existing
floors. Laminate floors "float" over a variety of subfloors; they aren't glued directly to a substrate. It lies on top of your concrete, wood or existing floor. This technique
allows the floor to expand and contract as needed in the heat and cold. Manufacturers say the strength of the finished unit allows heavy objects, like refrigerators, to
be placed directly on the floor.

According to Jon Namba, technical director of the World Floor Covering Association, laminate flooring continues to grow in popularity, gain larger market share of
flooring options and become more cost effective when completing home renovations.  Along with wood and ceramic tile, laminates will be the fastest-growing
segments of the flooring industry. Industry representatives agree that laminates are durable, but proper care is required. Homeowners with laminate floors should
keep moisture to a minimum. Always refer to the manufacturer's care and maintenance instructions and recommendations.

Some helpful tips to consider in caring for your laminate flooring:

  • Use felt pads or wide-based casters underneath chair and furniture legs.

  • Use extra care when moving heavy objects across the floor.

  • Place mats at all the doorways.

  • Vacuum the floor regularly using soft-brush attachments.

  • Wipe with a damp cloth or mop when needed.

  • Do not polish or wax laminate floors.

  • Never try to refinish or sand a laminate floor.
