Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is a popular hardwood alternative choice for budget-conscious homeowners.  Laminate wood floors replicate the look of hardwood species, grains, coloring, and tight tongue-and-groove locking systems to create the realistic appearance and feel of solid hardwood floors.

Some of the advantages of choosing laminate flooring for your home are:

  • Durability: Laminate floors are durable while being both pet-friendly and family-friendly in high-traffic areas.
  • Tough Finish Layer: The top layer is treated to protect the laminate floor from fading, stains, and wear.
  • Cost Effective: Laminate floors are a great hardwood alternative for budget-conscious homeowners.
