One of the most popular surface materials is laminate wood flooring, which is fused layers of fiberboard that have the look and appeal of wood. There's an array of wood-grain styles and colors available, as well as new stone and slate laminate designs. The material is ideal for those who like the idea of wood flooring, but prefer the easy maintenance of a manufactured material. It's a good choice for any hard-working floor in the house.
A Good Installation
A new floor is only as good as its installation. Once you've decided what type of flooring material you want, the next step is getting advice from a professional flooring contractor. He can advise you about the material you've chosen and how it can be installed. All subfloors are not created equal, and the condition of the existing floor and what's underneath it are key to a good installation. Sometimes a new floor can be laid directly over the existing ones. In other instances the existing floor should be removed or repair work or leveling is needed. Often a new underlayment that creates a smooth sound surface for the new floor is the best choice. Whatever the situation, the new floor you've chosen will be an investment you'll enjoy for years to come.
