Laminate flooring has come a long way over the years, making it an ideal fit for spaces where hardwood flooring isn’t compatible. While there once was a time when laminate was considered a shoddy product, today nothing could be further from the truth. With digital imaging and artfully crafted textures, today’s laminate looks identical to hardwood, tile, and stone, while offering up the endurance and affordability you’re seeking.
At Masterpiece Carpet One Floor & Home, we’re your local destination for laminate flooring. Guided by our industry experts, you can take comfort in the process of choosing and installing a laminate floor you’re bound to enjoy for many years to come. We proudly provide flooring and installation services to Kalispell and Northwest Montana.
Today’s laminate planks are designed to look similar to natural wood flooring, but there is much more going on beneath the surface. Solid hardwood planks are made from a single piece of premium wood like maple, hickory, walnut, oak, hickory, and beyond. In contrast, laminate planks are created by gluing together several layers of composite wood with a digital image of hardwood at the surface. Laminate doesn’t ever need to be sanded or refinished, and unlike real hardwood, it’s more resistant to water and everyday damages.
While in the past only moisture-resistant laminate was available, today we have 100% laminate floors featured in our showroom. These floors can handle spills, humidity, stains, pet accidents, and other incidents. They can be installed in a finished basement, a kitchen, a bathroom, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and more.
Laminate flooring can be installed quickly and easily. Designed with the determined DIY-ers in mind, laminate has convincing visuals that can blend right in with any existing hardwood and the differences aren’t apparent to the naked eye. Usually laminate floors come with a click-lock installation method. In this case, they snap together over the existing subfloor or floor and are called a floating floor. This makes them easy to take apart and repair, and it requires less materials and adhesives. You’ll also find other laminate installation methods available, such as a glue-down method. Laminate floors like our waterproof Mirror Lake collection, are ideal for anywhere in your home and also light-use commercial settings.
