Laminate Flooring in Latham & Clifton Park, NY

Beautiful style doesn’t always mean you have to compromise, thanks to the modernization of laminate flooring. Once upon a time, laminate flooring was considered a last resort, but times have certainly changed. Today’s laminate floors are more beautiful than ever, adding hardwood looks at a price that’s easy to manage.



At Carpet One Floor & Home of Latham and Clifton Park, NY we’re the region’s top destination for the latest laminate flooring. Let’s learn a little more about this enduring, resilient flooring family.


Laminate vs Hardwood


Laminate flooring is a rising star in the world of hardwood alternatives. Today there are hundreds of beautiful products that look and feel exactly like your favorite hardwood species, cuts, and finishes.



Your laminate floor boasts distinct advantages over actual hardwood. It’s significantly more affordable and unlike hardwood, it doesn’t ever require sanding or refinishing. Laminate planks won’t shrink or expand if exposed to moisture, meaning that certain laminates can be used in the bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room.


Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?


All laminate flooring is appropriate for spaces with regular moisture, though only select products are genuinely waterproof. Waterproof laminate flooring has a hefty, resin-soaked core that prevents splashes from seeping in deeply. Choose a waterproof laminate flooring for the basement, your laundry room, your kitchen, or any space frequented by pets and little kids.


Laminate Flooring Installation


Compared to natural hardwood, the installation process for laminate flooring is straightforward. Laminate planks are intended to lock and click into place, resulting in a floating floor. Proper installation is necessary to obtain all of laminate’s functional benefits. Nails and adhesives aren’t needed in your laminate installation, although a layer of glue can be applied to the subfloor during commercial installations if added resilience is desired.
