Although it does not commonly happen, still be careful from gapping. When the temperature of the floor goes down the average, what happens is that the laminated floor boards seem to repel from each other creating gaps in between these boards. Keeping the temperature to normal will surely avoid this problem. Check that the flooring pattern matches the pattern of its connecting board. This kind of problem is called off register. Although manufacturers make sure that customers do not encounter this kind of problem, it is always better to be sure so that you do not have to worry about returning and having your tiles changed. It is a waste of time and effort. See to it that the corners of your tiles are not chipped. Chipping can be a result of. wrong installation method, the use of a vacuum cleaner with a beater bar to clean the floor or having laminated tiles with poor quality. Depending on what the cause of the chipping is, deal with this matter right away. These are just the basic things that you need to be aware of once you decide to go for laminated tiles for your floor. These tips will help you enjoy to the fullest the advantages that this kind of flooring method has to offer.
What to look for in a laminate floor. I believe this can be answered pretty simply. Make sure the product has the styling that you like and falls in your budget. All laminates today perform extremely well regardless of price. Retail stores do carry many laminate products and I believe each one will perform as well as any. High- or low-priced, they will perform about the same. The technology today is superior to the laminates of even 5 years ago. Most of the old chip board core laminates from 10 years ago or longer look like the day they were installed. Gone are the old glue-together products, and now with the drop and lock technologies, joint separation is pretty much nonexistent. The biggest difference I see in pricing of products is that manufacturers extend the warranties and make more realistic looks in the higher-priced products. Performance will be very similar between all the products. The number one enemy of a laminate floor is water. If the laminate is going to get wet, pick another floor. I also get concerned with some of these high shine laminate floors. My company has seen some issues in that they will (not surprisingly) show abrasions to the finish much quicker than a lower luster finish. If it were my home, I would only use a high shine product in an area that gets minimal wear. I have seen some pretty flimsy laminates at big box stores and buying clubs. These laminates are not really any less expensive and are really flimsy when holding them. I believe they are products made especially for these stores, and really are no less costly. One trick of these stores is to put a low amount of square footage in each box, which makes the cost appear less. Always do your math and compare apples to apples.
