Laminate flooring is often confused with hardwood flooring and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Although it is not natural hardwood but pressboard with a laminate finish the effect both looks and feels so real that most people can’t tell the difference. Laminate has several advantages over hardwood however:
- It doesn’t require cutting down old, increasingly rare hardwood trees
- It’s far less expensive to purchase, install and maintain
- It’s available in scores of different colours and patterns to match any decor
- It’s a healthier choice as bacteria and dangerous molds can’t gain a foothold
At Carpets Bristol our collection of laminates is the most extensive in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire region. Our knowledgeable and friendly sales associates are a pleasure to work with and our installation technicians do the job right every time out.
What is Laminate Flooring?
As stated above laminate is pressboard at its core with a thin top layer printed with the image of natural hardwood or ceramic tile. Even when viewed extremely close up it is virtually impossible to tell the melamine-impregnated surface you’re looking at is an image. Beneath this thin outer layer lies a half inch of composite wood that gives the laminate flooring an appealing heft. Most laminate flooring sections are either glued together or snapped together though none are actually nailed down to the floor. Instead their integrity rests with the skill of the installation specialist to install them in way that fits your space like a glove.
