Learn More - About Laminates

LAMINATES

Laminate consists of a decorative surface which is protected by a wear-resistant layer above it, and strengthened by a sturdy fibre backing.

Laminate flooring products can be manufactured to look like surfaces such as granite and wood, but at a much lower cost. Laminate floorcovering is usually more realistic than vinyl when it comes to replicating natural materials. Padding can be placed beneath laminate flooring for extra comfort.

BENEFITS

  • Easy to install.
  • Can often be laid directly over existing flooring, which saves time and money.
  • Easy maintenance.
  • Superior durability.
  • Sustained look and feel.
  • Most laminate flooring is manufactured with a ‘wear layer’ which protects it against most scratches, scuffs and stains.

CARE

Cleaning and maintenance of laminate floorcovering is easy!

A mop with an ammonia-based floor cleaner will remove dirt and leave a shine. Vacuum the laminate floor before mopping if there is soil that needs to be removed. There is no need to polish or wax laminate flooring, and it should not be buffed or sanded as this will damage the surface.

DIY FOR LAMINATES

Installation do’s and don’ts

DO

  • Ensure that your subfloor is flat, dry, and smooth
  • Use an underlay to lessen laminate floor ‘echo’
  • Install your floor per the manufacturer’s instructions or hire a professional to install your floor if you are unsure how to proceed
  • Acclimatize boards for 48 hours before installation
  • Inspect boards for defects before installing
  • Leave an expansion gap of a minimum of 10mm around the room perimeter and at room transitions to allow space for the floor to move during temperature changes
  • In kitchens, to create greater water resistance in the seams of your floor, run a small bead of waterproof glue in the groove before clicking the planks together and wipe off any excess before it dries
  • Keep extra boards in storage for minor repairs down the road

DON’T

  • Install in consistently wet areas such as bathrooms and laundry room
  • Install over carpet
  • Treat or seal your floors after they are installed unless otherwise indicated by manufacturer’s instructions
