Laminate Flooring 101

Laminate flooring is typically made up of a high-or medium-density fiberboard under a high-definition image and scratch-resistant protective layer. The durability of laminate flooring is graded with what’s called the Abrasion Class (AC) Rating. Here’s how the ratings breakdown:

AC1: Suitable for minimal-traffic areas like bedrooms

AC2: Suitable for moderate-traffic areas like dining & living rooms

AC3: Suitable for high-traffic areas in the home, like kitchens

AC4: Suitable for light commercial use

AC5: Suitable for heavy commercial use

The great thing about the AC Rating system is that it allows you to invest in only what you NEED. Laminate floors with higher ratings have longer lifespans and are more scratch-resistant, so they cost more. If you want laminate flooring in a room that gets little use or foot traffic, you don’t need to invest in an AC3 laminate floor; an AC1 laminate floor will meet your needs – and do so at less cost.

Laminate Flooring Prices

The materials that go into laminate flooring aren’t as expensive as real wood, so manufacturers are able to create laminate flooring at less cost. As a result, laminate flooring in Staten Island & New Jersey is about half the price of hardwood flooring.

Another reason laminate flooring is less expensive is the installation process. Unlike real hardwood floors, laminate floors are installed using the floating-floor method. The planks of a laminate floor lock into each other using a tongue and groove system, and the laminate floor “floats” above the existing floor. This makes for quick, painless, and cost-effective installation because A) the existing floor doesn’t need to be removed and B) the laminate floor does not have to be nailed or glued down.

Laminate Flooring Durability & Maintenance

Hardwood may be the longest lasting flooring material, but it requires a fair amount of maintenance. Laminate floors also last a LONG time (30 years and more) yet require a fraction of the upkeep hardwood needs. The pressed-wood nature of laminate flooring makes it well-suited to resisting moisture and other wear and tear. And the higher the AC Rating (mentioned above), the thicker the floor and more resistant to scratches it is.

Laminate flooring’s excellent durability is necessary because the surface layer is made of a protective coating that can’t be refinished. If part of your laminate floor does get scratched, you have to replace the damaged planks. Fortunately, this is often as replacing the damaged panel with a new one.

As for maintenance, cleaning laminate flooring requires a damp mop or a manufacturer-recommended cleaner. There’s no need to polish, wax, or sand – laminate flooring keeps maintenance to a minimum!

Laminate Flooring Appearance

Laminate flooring comes in a wide variety of colors, plank widths, and textures. There are models that mimic all species and stain of hardwood, including trending colors like gray and textures like driftwood. Stone and tile styles are also available if you’re looking for an aesthetic other than hardwood.

Laminate floors have become so realistic looking that it’s easy to forget you’re not standing on a natural material. This is due to the pattern layer that rests under the protective surface. This layer consists of a high-definition image material that’s specially enhanced to provide depth and realism. The technology for laminate flooring imagery has become so photo-realistic that the best laminate floors can fool all but THE most trained eye.

Sure, you can still find laminate flooring in Staten Island & New Jersey that looks cheap and cheesy. But you absolutely will NOT find it at The Men With Tools. When it comes to the type of laminate flooring we sell, our philosophy is simple: If we wouldn’t let it touch OUR home, we would never let it touch YOUR home.
