Why choose laminate?

Laminate flooring adds sophisticated style—amazingly realistic hardwood and stone looks—to your home for less.

Laminate flooring is easy to install and easy to maintain, making it a great choice for the way you live—and for your budget. And it’s an environmentally friendly flooring option, often being made with recycled materials and requiring no harvesting of rare trees. Now, you can have styles that are as environmentally responsible as they are beautiful.

Fresh style. We carry laminate styles that embrace the latest trends. Add a light wood-look laminate in shades of white and gray to lighten up any space with an open, airy feel. Or try a natural stone look to create buzz-worthy flooring.
Serious durability. You can put the visual you love in even the trickiest areas—foyers, hallways, high-traffic areas and in-between spaces. Direct pressure laminate surfaces are virtually immune to spills, scuffs, stains and fading. Laminate flooring can be installed over dry concrete, wooden subfloors and many floor types. Its low clearance space height helps in older homes with floor thickness issues. Laminate floors are exceptionally durable and provide worry-free assurance that the floor you love won’t lose its looks.

Easy maintenance. As we mentioned, laminate flooring options realistically emulate the look and feel of hardwood at a lower price point. Did we add that your laminate floors will clean in a snap? That’s right, maintenance is quick and easy. Just clean with a vacuum, a damp cloth and the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner.

There are many laminate patterns and designs available and we invite you to browse our catalog HERE or visit Wayne Wiles Floor Coverings to view them in person.

What laminate floors can do for you

Are you considering a switch to laminate flooring? If so, you are in for a treat. As a material choice, it is popular, sophisticated and easy to care for. You can even install it yourself if you have some experience in DIY projects. However, you might prefer the exquisite results you get with professional installation service.

At Wayne Wiles Floor Coverings, we want you to be well informed in your laminate choices. That is why we want to share this information with you.

Laminate looks and texture

Laminate is as durable as it is versatile. The versatility of this flooring material is one of the reasons it remains wildly popular. For instance, it can be mistaken for hardwood flooring as well as stone, and can be installed in any room of your home. You can even install it in the basement.

Tile is another material that laminate often looks like. Aside from these standard looks, you can also find laminate that looks like hard to find reclaimed wood, aged metal, cement and exotics.

Laminate is simple to maintain

Unlike many natural materials used in flooring, laminate is much easier to care for. Since it requires no special care, it’s very popular among even the busiest homeowners. A simple vacuuming and wet mopping will do the trick in most cases.

Special cleaners for this flooring do exist, and if you need a deeper or more thorough cleaning, these will do nicely. However, in order to maintain the best possible look, here are a few extra tips:

  • Clean up wet spills immediately, or as soon as possible. This can be the result of spills or wet feet coming in from outside.

  • Use small rugs in areas preceding your laminate to catch as much dirt, debris and moisture as possible. This will cut down on the amount of cleaning you have to do.

  • Use floor protectors on chairs and other furniture to reduce the amount of indentation in your flooring. Generally speaking, the floor protector should be wider, as the furniture becomes heavier.
Some of the main advantages of this flooring include its ability to resist scratches and the fact that it can be used anywhere. Bathrooms, basements and kitchens are all great places to install laminate. It is a great all-around flooring material.
