Laminate Flooring Store in Alabama

Flooring is an essential part of every home, and here at Don’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Trussville and Vestavia, Alabama, we’re here to find you the best flooring for your needs. For those with kids and dogs or just looking for a budget-friendly option, laminate flooring is a great option. Modern laminate flooring gives an ultra-realistic look of hardwood while being more durable and water-resistant. Read below for more information on all things laminate flooring.


What is Laminate Flooring?


Laminate flooring is made of several layers of composite wood that is both durable and realistic. The core and base layers provide stability and some moisture resistance thanks to the fiberwood and other materials it’s made of. The decorative layer contains the high-definition natural hardwood image that gives the plank its realistic appearance. The finish layer gives the plank protection from scratches and dents, so you don’t have to worry about everyday wear and tear.


Laminate vs Hardwood


Hardwood can make a great addition to any home but comes with a hefty price tag. Hardwood flooring also doesn’t fare well in humid climates like ours and can buckle and warp in moisture-prone rooms. Laminate flooring offers a more budget-friendly option that is moisture resistant so you can still get the look of hardwood without the worry.


Installing Laminate Flooring


Laminate flooring is incredibly easy and fast to install so you enjoy your new, beautiful floors in no time. Most laminate flooring is installed using the click-lock method. This method involves the planks being placed together over the subfloor like a puzzle. This is called a floating floor. Floating floors are not recommended for installation under cabinetry since they need room to naturally expand and contract. Removing or replacing broken planks can be difficult in this situation.


Where Can Laminate Flooring Be Installed?


Laminate floors can be installed practically anywhere in the home including bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms. They can even be installed in rooms where hardwood typically cannot such as bathrooms and basements. Our installation team is happy and eager to install these beautiful floors in residential homes, rentals, and vacation properties. We pay close attention to detail, and although laminate is quick and easy to install, we make sure to never rush so you get the best flooring for your home.
