Transforming Your Home with Laminate Flooring

Transforming Your Home with Laminate Flooring

At Accent Hardwood Flooring, Inc., we've been serving the Durham, North Carolina community since our founding in 1988. Over the years, we've seen many trends come and go in the world of flooring, but one option that has stood the test of time is laminate flooring. In this post, we'll take you through the fascinating journey of laminate floors and the meticulous process of installing them.

What Makes Laminate Flooring Special?

Laminate flooring is a versatile and budget-friendly choice for homeowners seeking the beauty of hardwood or stone without the hefty price tag. These floors are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural materials while offering exceptional durability and ease of maintenance. They come in a wide range of styles, colors, and textures, making it easy to find the perfect fit for your home.

The Installation Process: Bringing Laminate Floors to Life

Installing laminate flooring may seem like a straightforward task, but it requires precision and attention to detail to achieve a flawless result. Here's a glimpse into the installation process we follow at Accent Hardwood Flooring, Inc.

1. Surface Preparation

Before installing laminate flooring, our team ensures that the subfloor is clean, dry, and level. Any imperfections in the subfloor can affect the appearance and longevity of your new floor.

2. Underlayment Installation

Next, we lay down an underlayment, which provides a moisture barrier and reduces noise. It also serves as a cushioning layer to make your laminate floor more comfortable to walk on.

3. Acclimation

Laminate planks need time to acclimate to the humidity and temperature of your home. This step ensures that the flooring won't expand or contract after installation.

4. Layout and Cutting

Our skilled installers carefully plan the layout of your laminate flooring, taking into account the room's dimensions and any unique design considerations. They then cut the planks to fit precisely, leaving no unsightly gaps.

5. Installation

With the prep work complete, it's time to lay the laminate planks. The planks are clicked and locked together, creating a stable and secure surface. This "floating" installation method means the planks are not directly attached to the subfloor, allowing for natural expansion and contraction.

6. Trim and Moldings

To finish the look, we add baseboards and moldings around the edges of the room. This step not only enhances the aesthetics but also covers any expansion gaps and creates a seamless transition between the laminate floor and adjacent surfaces.
