Picking The Best Discount Laminate Flooring

By Roberto Crowcell

Purchasers should think about the source of the discount laminate flooring and their reputation of selling quality products at reduced rates. For instance, a company that sells flooring without a fancy showroom or that buys in large quantities to lower the wholesale price, may be able to offer costs lower that its competition.

Some people equate quality and durability with price and so will shy away from using discount laminate flooring for any goal. Sometimes, more affordable flooring may make good financial sense, if it is getting used to remodel and seldom used room and the lack of activity in that room allows the flooring to last as long as costlier products.

A lot of factors influence the cost of laminate materials and most flooring will have at least five layers of materials laminated together to create the base. An image is then laminated to the top surface that is the image seen after installation. Some of the most affordable discount laminate flooring will have the five layers, but will use cheaper laminate glue to hold it all together that can also cause the layers to separate. Nonetheless, even the best laminate flooring can curl and buckle if the room’s level of humidity is too high or the installation was not done properly.

Appropriate Installation Extends Life of Laminate Flooring

Whatever the cost of the discount laminate flooring how it is installed and maintained will help determine how long it lasts. A lot of times laminate flooring is installed without allowing for humidity or temperature changes that are going to happen in nearly every home. As the wood in the materials expands, if not enough room was permitted during the installation, the flooring will buckle.

One the other side of the scale, if the discount laminate flooring was set up with too much space, during the colder, dryer time of the year the boards will separate, leaving gaps, which likely will form humps when the floor expands back to its original size. The gaps that are needed can vary, but typically only need about one-fourth to one-half-inch that can be hidden under the trim on the edges of the room. This problem is not special to discount laminate flooring, as it will affect flooring of all prices and qualities.
