Trafficmaster laminate flooring uses the popular click and lock method of installation. You fit the pieces together like a puzzle and they lock into place. Laminate floors don’t need to be screwed, nailed or glued. The locking pieces fit seamlessly together and look like real hardwood, if that is the style you have chosen. Laminate floors also come in slate and stone styles, although hardwood is definitely the most popular choice with most people. There’s just nothing like the traditional warmth of wood.
Wood floors are beautiful — there’s no doubt about it. However, they are a real pain to install. Once they’ve been installed, they must be maintained if you want them to look their best. This means using a floor machine on a regular basis and waxing often. Eventually, wood floors need refinished to make them look as good as new. Laminate floors, on the other hand, look first-day new years after installation. Laminate floors retain their shine thanks to space age coatings that not only add sheen but protect against damage.
This type of laminate floors are designed to stand up under heavy foot traffic. It consists of four layers, each of which provides durability. The inside of the flooring is crafted from fiberboard which helps absorb sound and adds stability. The outer layers are designed to keep out moisture and keep the floor from getting damaged. Unlike wood floors, keeping your laminate floors in top condition is quick and easy. A sweep and damp mop is all that’s required to keep laminate flooring looking like new. If you’ve decided that laminate floors are right for you, the next step is deciding what color and pattern you like best.
Trafficmaster laminate flooring is available in a variety of great styles. You will find selections like beautiful oak, pine and cherry. There are even some exotic woods. For a breezy look, consider a bamboo style floor which can really open up a room. If you’re not sure which color will look best, go to your local home improvement store and view some samples. Home Depot carries a wide variety of flooring choices including Trafficmaster. It also can be purchased online but when you go this route it is harder to obtain samples.
