Materials like pine, walnut, marble, and ceramic are great, classic materials for flooring but they do have downsides. These natural materials need to be protected against wear and tear and are difficult to install and maintain—sometimes taking over a week to cure every time they need to be refinished or repaired. The cost of real stone or hardwood can also be prohibitive for many consumers.
Fortunately, there is another option, one that provides lasting durability with fast and easy installation, and that even has the same natural, classic look as the materials listed above. Laminate floors, including Pergo flooring, offer the same appearance and texture as wood or stone floors and are a much cheaper and easier option. Plus, DC Floors has a great in-store variety and we can easily and quickly install your new laminate floor on demand.
Perfect for New Homes, Renovations, and Renewals
Californians love their homes and with the vibrant family and business life Sacramento offers, you need to be sure that your home and its construction will pass the test of time and still look great afterwards. Laminate flooring offers a perfect balance of cost, durability, and style to keep new construction on schedule, and the easy installation and ‘floating floor’ setup makes it a great solution for well-loved homes that could use some renovation.
Because the individual strips or tiles of laminate use a ‘tongue and groove’ system in place of glues or nails, you can simply snap the pieces together without nailing them into the floor or walls. Once the area is all set, molding is attached around the edges and at room transitions to create the perfect effect. You can also easily set up laminate flooring over existing flooring or a subfloor. The molding and shape of the finished product holds it in place, while still allowing room for the floor to expand and contract with temperature and humidity, without fractures or warping.
Laminate flooring is built with four separate layers for durability and quality appearance.
1. A backing layer designed to add support and structure while resisting moisture.
2. A high density core designed to bring strength and durability, usually made of fiberboard and resin.
3. A decorative layer printed in natural designs such as hardwood or stone.
4. A clear surface layer made of a stain-resistant, protective finish, and often imprinted with natural textures for added realism.
Most customers also put down a padded under-layer for heat retention and softness. We can easily make recommendations based on your needs!
