Laminate is an affordable and easy to care for flooring solution that’s perfect for both homes and businesses. It’s cheaper, simpler to maintain, and more water-resistant than real hardwood. Thanks to modern flooring innovation, today’s laminate looks more real than ever before. You can truly have the upscale appearance of natural wood without the hassle with laminate. To learn more, visit MCI Carpet One Floor & Home in Waite Park, MN, where we carry the region’s best laminate flooring selection.
While laminate flooring looks and feels identical to hardwood, it’s actually very different. It’s made using a layered construction in which 3-7 layers of composite wood are glued together. At the surface is a wood look image that mirrors solid wood. The image is created using high definition photography and is incredibly real looking. Laminate is more moisture-resistant, affordable, and simple to maintain than real hardwood.
Laminate is simple to install and repair. Each plank click-locks into place over your subfloor, creating what is called a floating floor. The process doesn’t require nails or adhesives, so you can walk on your new floor the same day as installation. Laminate floors can be installed anywhere in your home. For bathrooms and kitchens, we recommend choosing a waterproof laminate floor, such as our Mirror Lake™ collection.
