Laminate wood flooring is made from composite wood which is heated at high temperatures and pressed together. An image of a section of hardwood is then placed over the composite wood. This covers the composite wood and forms the laminate. The materials are cheaper and, furthermore, the installation costs of laminate flooring can be up to 50 percent cheaper than that of hardwood flooring installation.
Other benefits of laminate flooring include being more durable, scratch resistant as well as offering resistance to moisture and wear and tear and, therefore, requires less maintenance.

We have helped many customers install laminate flooring that is just right for their home. There is a little more preparation required prior to the installation of laminate flooring, however, in the long run it is much more time efficient. Because of the nature of the installation process, you can install laminate flooring without completely emptying the room where the flooring is going. With carpets, you are required to have the space completely clear, whereas, with laminate flooring you can shift furniture to one side of the room opposite to where the installation of the flooring starts. This means that when one side of the room’s flooring is laid, you can move the furniture to other side of the room to make way for the rest of the floor to be laid.
