Laminate floors are quickly becoming the floors of choice, mainly due to their durability, luxurious look, and price. These floors offer much of the look and appeal of real stone or hardwood floors but at a reduced cost. They are extremely durable and wear resistant and will not fade after years of direct sunlight.
The advantages of laminate floors are many and make laminate floors a great alternative when choosing the perfect floor for your home. While not scratch proof, laminate floors are very durable and high heels or office chairs on wheels are not a problem. We recommend a simple felt pad under chair legs or furniture feet to assure many years of great service from your new laminate flooring. As a manufactured product, we strongly suggest not getting sand or stones on your new laminate floor. This can be done by placing a simple floor mat at the door allowing a place where people can wipe their feet. This will help maintain the warmth, appeal, and beauty of your flooring year after year after year.
Laminate floors are not only resistant to UV rays and will not fade even after years of exposure to direct sunlight, they are also wear resistant and can stand a great deal of wear which makes them a great alternative for high traffic areas. Laminate flooring is also resistant to penetration by most household chemicals and what may appear to be an obstinate stain such as marker, lipstick or nail varnish can be removed with a little acetone. They are also burn resistant. Laminate floors do quite well in front of a fire place where burning cinders would normally be considered a hazard. Laminate floors are built to withstand sudden impact and localized knocks such as those created by high heels, falling objects, etc. These floors can also withstand the more long-term effects caused by chairs, table legs, bed legs, and other household and office furniture. Laminate floors have much of the visual appeal of stone or hardwood floors without the expense. Let the flooring professionals at Harrys Carpets show you the advantages that laminate floors bring to your Home.
