ProsBest And No.1 Laminate Floors - Floors Touch Mckinney

Easy to install

Instead of gluing or nailing down planks, laminate floors can simply be clicked and locked together. Of course, this is only possible if the subfloor it’s installed on is perfectly clean and flat.


Laminate floors can imitate virtually any flooring material. Whether you prefer wood or tile flooring, laminate flooring can imitate it perfectly. You can choose any type of wood or tile that suits your taste, and it can be turned into beautiful hardwood flooring.


Laminate floors tends to cost between $4.50-$5.00 per square foot. This much more affordable than some of the flooring options laminate flooring imitates. For example, real hardwood and natural stone tiles are much more expensive when compared to laminate flooring.

Easy to maintain

Laminate floors has a multi-layered composition. This helps with moisture resistance, which means that you don’t have to worry about moisture penetration when cleaning. You can use a damp mop and broom to clean the surface and keep your flooring looking as good as new.




Laminate floors isn’t real hardwood, so it doesn’t look exactly like real hardwood. However, thanks to the advancement of technology, laminate flooring is pretty good at imitating many different flooring options. It all depends on whether you are particular about having the real flooring material or not.


Like all flooring materials, laminate floors will wear down over time. Most laminate flooring options come with a warranty of at least 10 years, so you can expect it to last at least that long with proper care and maintenance.



Moisture issues

One of the biggest disadvantages of laminate floors is moisture-related damage if it’s exposed to moisture for an extended period of time. That’s why it’s said not to have laminate flooring installed in areas like laundry rooms or bathrooms. However, laminate flooring is great for kitchen flooring. Ultimately, as long as you can wipe up spills as soon as possible, you should be fine with laminate flooring.

Lower return on investment

Since laminate flooring is not the real flooring material it imitates. Since real hardwood and natural stone tile add considerable value to a home’s resale value, laminate won’t add nearly as much.
