If you run a business that is subject to heavy foot traffic you may want to consider laminate flooring as an alternative to hardwood flooring. Laminate flooring is a popular choice among many of our commercial clients as it looks good, it is easy to care for and it can be put up with a lot more abuse than the more delicate hardwood flooring. Laminate flooring is available in an extensive choice of colors and thicknesses meaning that we can offer you the perfect choice of laminate for your business at a competitive price. It is easy to clean as well and not as expensive to replace although it will need replacing more often than the hardwood alternative.
When it comes to installing laminate flooring the process of is also quicker than that of a wooden floor installation. This is good news to businesses as it means that we can be in and out in a relatively short space of time. At Rovin’s Hardwood Flooring we like to offer our clients flexibility and to work with their needs and those of the business. We are able to work through the night to install the flooring so that your new floor doesn’t affect your sales or productivity.
Laminate flooring is usually made from recycled paper and there are no glue or nails involved. It works by the clicking together of boards which must be fitted together snugly. Once you have fitted the first row it is relatively simple to fit the rest of the floor then it is simply a case of finishing off the edges with lengths of beading. In areas of high traffic it’s always advisable to install under floor cushioning and sound barriers to minimise noise and maximise comfort. Having cushioning under the floor also increases energy efficiency as it will keep more heat in the room. We will advise you on all the options available to help you find the most cost effective solution that works best with your business requirements.
Because laminate flooring isn’t as sensitive to water as real hardwood flooring, it’s also less prone to warping and many of our clients choose this option in areas of high humidity. What you don’t want is unsightly gaps where the wood begins to warp, expand or contract.
