Q. What are the benefits of Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring is the closes floor to being maintenance-free. You can use ordinary vacuuming or sweeping, as well as occasional wiping or dusting. A quality laminate product is one of best flooring options in terms of durability. Extremely durable and far less apt to scratch than wood, its topcoat is unsurpassed for wear and stain resistance. Easy installation is one of laminate flooring’s prime attributes. It’s an "interlocking floating" floor, which means the floor tiles or planks attach to each other rather than to the sub-floor. They attach via a tongue-and-groove, glue free system that makes it possible to install a laminate floor over virtually any existing floor. It is Do-it-yourself type flooring!
