Laminate Flooring in Marietta
Laminate flooring has evolved over time so much so that it is often mistaken for real hardwood flooring. The demand for high-end laminate flooring in Marietta is at an all-time high! Why is laminate becoming so popular? Many reasons, not the least of which is price. When compared side by side, laminate is often a much more affordable option to solid hardwood.
Laminate flooring is also durable. The finished product can take a beating and still look great when compared to real hardwood floors. And, because it is man-made, you get a great looking product with each box of material. Real hardwood is dependent upon nature to provide the pattern and can therefore be a little hit and miss when it comes to the look.
What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is made of several layers compressed to make a solid piece of material. The finished product is topped with a design or photographic layer that serves as the pattern (could also include some texture) followed by a wear layer that offers protection against scuffs and scratches. In other words, it can look exactly the way you want it to look and be rugged at the same time!

Q: Where can I install laminate flooring?
A: Just about anywhere you would install hardwood floor. Keep in mind that because there is a wood component in laminate flooring that areas that are prone to water damage may not be advised.
Q: What is meant by a “floating floor”?
A: That means that the flooring components are connected to one another but not to the subfloor. This is the means by which nearly all laminate flooring is installed.
Q: If a plank is damaged, can it be replaced?
A: The shorter answer is yes! However, due to the way the flooring pieces are attached to one another it can be difficult. It is best to call the company that installed the floor for you, or if you did it yourself, the manufacturer and see how to handle the situation.
