Cost Effective – Of course, expense is a top concern when talking about flooring material. With Wilsonart laminates, you can really save a lot of money. Why? Well, first of all, their laminates are made from non-expensive yet high-quality materials. You can buy Wilsonart laminate flooring at an affordable price. On top of that, you can save more money because you will not require the services of a professional floor installer to install their product. You can do the installation even if you do not have extensive DIY skills. And that is not the end of it. You can save more money through the years with Wilsonart flooring because it requires little maintenance. With wood flooring, you need to occasionally buy wax. Let us say that an ordinary brand of 32 oz wax costs $7.99 and that you usually consume it in one week. There are four weeks in a month. So that would cost you $31.96 per month and about $383.52 a year. That definitely is some cost for maintenance. If you would not use a $7.99 32 oz wax to maintain your floor weekly for a year, then you can buy a top quality digital camera.
A sheet of foam underlay is placed between the concrete floor and the hardwood floor to provide insulation and for warmth under foot. Any type of hardwood floors can be scratched, but scratches are pretty easy to repair. If a laminate floor is scratched or tears, it is not very easily repaired. Hardwood comes in a variety of strip and plank options. Strip flooring is 21/4” wide and can be used to visually enlarge the size of a room. Hardwood and laminate flooring is a durable, reliable investment, and Wood Floor Paradise has the best selection of textures and styles at the most affordable prices, so visit today! Hardwood flooring needs continuous maintenance. You need to keep it clean, keep things that can scratch it off of it, and you will need to protect it with coatings when needed.
marking out your floor – Whilst you do need need to mark out where you will lay each laminate board as you would with laying tiles, it is very important to determine how you will lay your first row, and to get this right. For this reason, before we move onto laying the underlay, decide now where you will begin laying your first row of laminate, and the direction the boards will be going in. It's always advisable to start laying your flooring in the lightest part of the room. Once you have decided where your first row will go, lay your row as a trial, remembering to use spacers between the boards and the skirting board. This trial row will help determine how much of the end-row board you will need cut off in order to make the flooring fit. This is useful to plan in advance since you should avoid a situation where you are having to cut more than 50% of the depth of the board away (the short side), or less than 400mm of the width of the board away (the long side). This is because it will compromise the strength of your floor.
Cash and carry vs. installed purchase. This is always a tough one because a flooring product is only as good as the installation. I have seen a lot of want to-be independent installers out there that can ruin a laminate or hardwood job. Most carpet installers are not carpenters, but many do pretend to be. It is rare to find an installer that can do it all. As a matter of fact, I have yet to find one. Many are top notch at some types of flooring, but not others. So when you hire a friend of a friend, or someone working under their own shingle, are you guaranteed the type of installation you expect? Also, when using a moonlighting installer, you should be paying no more than 50-60% of the prevailing rate of the independent retailer installation rate. I have seen moonlighting installers charge half again as much for an installation than the customer could have gotten from a flooring store. When you have the flooring store install the product, there will be no finger-pointing should there ever be an issue. There are so many different complications that can happen after an installation, and if you are dealing with a rock solid independent retail store, you have protection. In my opinion, there needs to be significant savings for you when you cash and carry a product. If you have the ability to install on your own, then there is normally a substantial savings realized and I say go for it. If not, let the experts do it.
