At Universal Carpet, we are well-known for providing residential and commercial property owners with many different flooring materials, including laminate flooring. Laminate is a product that is made by layering a slim sheet of decorative material over particleboard or some type of a synthetic base. The decorative layer can have a wide variety of designs, and it can even mimic the look and feel of natural wood, marble, stone, or some other expensive-looking type of flooring. The material is covered with a sealant to prevent it from breaking down.

The benefits of this laminate flooring material are the fact that it is very affordable. In fact, it is one of the most cost-effective flooring options available on the market today. It's also easy to have installed. This means that you don't need to wait around for days or weeks for the installation process to be finished. The material is easy to maintain, as well. This means that a simple sweeping or mopping of the floor will be all that is needed to keep the surface of the floor looking great for years and years in your home or business. This makes it much easier to care for than wooden flooring, which will eventually need to be refinished.

Installing Laminate Floor

As mentioned above, installing this type of flooring is fairly straightforward and can usually be finished in a few hours to a day. The process will start with the old flooring being torn out. A proper subfloor will be needed for your new laminate, and we will discuss what subflooring options are available to you prior to the installation taking place. Next, we will cut the laminate flooring from a roll and get it installed with a secure adhesive. We will be sure that the seams in the flooring are not obvious and aren't eyesores. All seams will be disguised so that they can't easily be seen with the naked eye.

This type of flooring can be installed practically anywhere in a home or office, and we typically see it being used in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. The material is durable, and with the right kind of maintenance and care, it can continue to look beautiful in your location for many years to come.
