J.C. Jacobs Carpet One in Rock Springs offers one of the area’s largest selections of laminate flooring. Laminate is a strong, stable, and wear resistant alternative to hardwood flooring, so it’s especially practical in busy households and even commercial settings. Plus, because of advancements in digital printing and manufacturing, modern-day laminate looks and feels exactly like real wood!
Laminate is made from individual layers that provide certain style and performance advantages. The top layer, for example, protects against scratches and scuffs better than wood surfaces. In fact, many laminate floors have top layers that are nearly as strong as diamond. The next layer is the decorative layer, and it includes an HD image of real hardwood. This layer provides laminate with its authentic appearance.
The last two layers, the core and base layers, provide stability and support against foot traffic. With a thick core, for example, laminate planks will not expand or contract when exposed to moisture, so they can be installed in areas with some moisture and humidity. And, with strong base layers, laminate planks will not collapse under heavy foot traffic or other impacts.
How is laminate flooring installed? Some laminate floors can be glued to the subfloor with an adhesive that's considered permanent. And, the planks will click and lock together for a gapless surface. There are other laminate options, however, that will lock together and float over the subfloor without any adhesive.
Where can laminate be installed? Laminate is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, and even some kitchens. It will resist scratches, scuffs, and foot traffic, and it also can handle some moisture. But, because laminate isn't totally waterproof, we don't recommend installing it in bathrooms and certain basement settings.
Although some laminate floors can be installed by skilled DIYers, we always recommend relying on professionals. Fortunately, we work with expert installation teams who can handle any and every project!
