Timeless, elegant, unique. Nothing gives a space that warm, comfortable feeling quite like a beautiful laminate floor.
Are You Considering Getting A Laminate Floor?
Laminate is a great option when you’re a fan of the hardwood look but want something that’s less expensive. But that’s not the only benefit of laminate. To make an informed decision, you’ll want to know all the advantages and disadvantages.
The Advantages Of Laminate Floors
Price: Laminate is less expensive than most flooring materials. It’s even less expensive than carpet and more than two times less expensive than any type of hardwood.
Durability: Laminate is durable. In many cases, you won’t have to replace your laminate floor for many years. This makes it a cost-effective choice.
Environmental friendly: Laminate is an eco-friendly choice. It has the look of wood but uses less raw materials. Laminate floors are also recyclable and have many other environmental friendly benefits.
Easy to clean: Laminate floors are easier to clean than other types of floors. You only need to vacuum and mop it from time to time. Waxing or polishing is not needed.
Stain and scratch-resistant: Laminate floors have a strong, durable layer of melamine plastic. This makes it resistant to stains, scratches and other types of damage.
Can hold a lot of weight: Laminate floors can hold over 1000 pounds of pressure per square inch. If you’re planning on placing a heavy object on your floor laminate is a great option.
Great if you have an allergy: Unlike carpets, laminate floors don’t hold any allergens. That’s why it’s a good option if you have asthma or an allergy. Because you can lock the planks it’s also hard for moisture to get through.
Sunlight resistant: Laminate floors are unaffected by sunlight.
A wide variety of choices: You can buy laminate floors in many different patterns that look just like real wood. Because of its distinctive look, you can use it for many different objectives.
The Disadvantages Of Laminate Floors
Let’s sound through: Laminate easily let’s sound through. Vibrations go through the floor and can be heard if there’s a person in the room below. A high quality padding is recommended to ease some of the noise passing through.
Not moisture resistant: Laminate is not a good option when the floor is prone to moisture. That’s why using it for your bathroom floor is not a good idea.
Not easy to repair: Laminate is a tough material that’s not easily damaged. But it can damage and once it’s damaged it can’t be repaired, unlike hardwood floors, that can be re-buffed or polished. Your best option is to fully replace a plank once it’s damaged.
It can become slippery: Laminate floors can become slippery when wet.

An added benefit of laminate is that you can install it on top of other types of floor like wood, concrete and vinyl. You also won’t need to use glue because you can easily snap the planks together. In some cases, you do need to have specialized equipment like a miter saw.

- Installment costs: Installing laminate flooring will cost you between $2 to $8 per square foot.
- Cost of 300-square-foot: If you’re planning to install a 300-square-foot area it will cost you between $600 to $2,400
The Types Of Laminate Floors
You can choose from two different types of laminate. Artificial laminate and laminate made from real wood. They both come in planks that can be snapped together.
- Plastic laminate: Plastic laminate is the artificial type of laminate. It has a layer of melamine on the bottom and a resin-saturated fiberboard center. The print is protected by a hard layer of plastic.
- Engineered wood: Engineered wood is made from layers of real wood glued together. That’s why it has great stability.

❝ Me and my wife had just moved to New Orleans and needed a new floor. We were hoping to get some advice because we weren’t sure what type of material to use. Travis really took his time with us by thoroughly explaining the pros and cons of each material. This made us decide to hire him. Before he started working on the floor, he gave us a scope of work that contained everything that was important to know. The work ended up being done in less time than we initially expected. But most importantly, we couldn’t be happier with the result! Hiring Travis made us feel right at home in New Orleans. Thanks again Travis. ❞

He had no problems giving me a list of people he worked for. I decided to hire him and ended up being impressed by his professionalism. I got the floor I wanted for a great price and without any unexpected problems. I’d recommend Travis to anyone who wants to get a floor installed or repaired. Keep up the good work Travis ❞
