Laminate Floors in Mentor, OH

Laminate flooring is a stylish, durable, and reliable floor that doesn’t cost a fortune. Although laminate flooring wasn’t always known for its good looks, times have certainly changed.


Today’s laminate flooring can realistically accomplish stunning visuals inspired by natural wood, tile, and stone. Carpet One Floor & Home of Mentor, OH, is proud to be your local laminate flooring destination.


How Does Laminate Flooring Compare to Hardwood Flooring?


For those who love natural hardwood but would prefer to avoid the hefty investment and upkeep, laminate flooring is a terrific alternative.


In some cases, laminate flooring is even superior to its natural counterparts. With its sturdy, synthetic composition, laminate flooring doesn’t rely on natural resources, so it’s considered sustainable. It’s built to endure heavy usage. With its protective top layer, laminate flooring simply wipes clean.


Since it’s constructed in layers, laminate flooring boasts added stability and unlike actual hardwood, laminate flooring won’t show its age as the years go by. In fact, a quality laminate floor can easily outlive a floor made using natural hardwood.


Is Laminate Flooring Really Waterproof?


All laminate flooring is moisture resistant, and a select few options are 100% waterproof. 


Made to go anywhere, waterproof laminate flooring can be customized to fit all your favorite spaces. That’s because these stylish stunners have several added features designed to keep your chore list even shorter than your worry list!


Waterproof laminate floor planks install with watertight seams. Additionally, each plank has a clear, protective surface, along with a waterproof core, that traps splashes and spills along the surface, where they can be removed using a fresh towel.


Waterproof laminate flooring can be installed in spaces where natural hardwood or stone simply isn’t compatible:


  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Finished Basements
  • Stairs
  • Hallways
  • Laundry Rooms


Planning Your Laminate Flooring Installation


You’ve found the perfect laminate flooring: now you’re ready to install it.


We have great news for you: laminate flooring has several methods of installation. Many of them are extremely user-friendly. Your laminate flooring can be glued or nailed to your subfloor, like traditional hardwood.


An even simpler method compatible with certain laminate floors is the floating method. With a floating installation, your laminate planks or tiles will simply click together over your subfloor: no adhesive, glue, or grout is ever needed.


Regardless of how you install, it’s important to plan ahead of time, since your new laminate will need time to “settle in,” both prior to installation and immediately following installation.


Should I Try Installing My Own Laminate Floor?

Here’s one of those instances where you really ought to look before you leap.


Although laminate floors are by far one of the simpler floors  to install, that doesn’t mean you should jump right in to a DIY! You’ll still need time to measure properly, and to clean and level your subfloor.


Here’s one of many reasons why it usually makes sense to schedule a professional flooring installation with our experts. For us, this is all in a day’s work, even if your project spans a larger room, or you have a tighter schedule. Plus, you won’t have to worry whether or not your product warranty covers future damages!


We’re proud to offer professional laminate flooring installation for both commercial and residential properties.


How Often Does Laminate Flooring Need Replacing?


Well, it depends on how well you take care of it. 


If properly cared for, your new laminate floor can last for decades. That means being careful to avoid scratching your new floor. Be sure to discuss your lifestyle with us before making your final flooring selection.


Take care to clean your laminate floor properly, avoiding products like “Mop & Glow” or steam mops. A spray and wipe cleaner will ensure no residue seeks into seams.
