Laminate flooring is an excellent option for homes and offices, but before you get it installed, you need to understand what it is and who it’s right for. Luckily for you, we’ve prepared this list of FAQs. If you have more questions, feel free to come ask us. No questions are silly!
What is laminate flooring?
It is a multi-layer synthetic material fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring usually looks like wood, but it can also be designed to resemble stone, or other materials.
How much does laminate flooring cost?
At Builders Interiors, we have products available starting at just $1.50 per square foot. For really high-quality durable material, however, you’d be paying somewhere between $4-8 per square foot (usually including installation fees).
How much does it cost to install 1000 square feet of laminate floors?
With laminate flooring started at $1.50, Builders Interiors customers can enjoy 1000 square feet of laminate flooring for as little as $1500.
Is it cheaper to install tile or laminate flooring?
It depends on the type of tile or laminate flooring you choose. Generally, laminate is more cost-effective than tile, but it also depends on the size of the area you are covering and the complexity of the installation. Our team at Builders Interiors would be happy to discuss your specific project with you and provide a tailored estimate for both tile and laminate flooring.
How long does laminate flooring last?
It usually lasts between 15-25 years, but can go as long as 30 years without needing major repairs or replacement.
What is laminate flooring made of?
The core of laminate planks is made using melamine resin and fiberboard materials. The design you see on top (the wood or stone look) is a photographic applique layer under a transparent wear layer.
How many boxes of laminate flooring do I need?
To calculate how much laminate flooring you’ll need, first figure out the square footage of the rooms you’re installing them in. Then divide that by the size of each plank, and that’ll tell you how many planks you need. If you know how many planks come in a box, the next step is easy. Make sure you get 5-10% extra, just in case.
Where to buy laminate flooring?
Most flooring stores will have laminate flooring. However, you can also find it at home improvement stores such as Home Depot and Lowe’s. Make sure you read the product’s details properly, and get something that’s right for your needs. If in doubt, ask someone.
What is the best cleaner for laminate floors?
You don’t need a special cleaning agent for laminate floors; sweeping and vacuuming are enough. Use a damp cloth to mop up spills, and you can use dish detergent for spot treatment (dry as soon as possible). Avoid wet mopping, or you may do irreversible damage.
What brands of laminate flooring have formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde is used in many home products (paint, fabric, detergent, flooring), and it can cause irritation, trigger asthma attacks, and have more serious health effects. There aren’t any brands that are particularly bad, but try to choose products that say “no added formaldehyde” on the label. And take precautions. Fresh air, low temperatures, and a no-smoking rule will go a long way in lowering formaldehyde emissions in your home.
What is the difference between vinyl and laminate flooring?
Vinyl is a plastic product, whereas laminate is a wood product. Another key difference is that vinyl is more moisture-resistant than laminate.
What goes under laminate flooring?
You can buy laminate planks that come with underlayment attached. It’s usually polyethylene foam, felt, or cork. Underlayment is a must when it comes to laminate flooring – especially if you want a floating floor.
Builders Interiors has affordable laminate flooring options in different looks, designs and colors. You can buy an easy-to-install variety and install the floors yourself, or you can hire us for professional installation.
