Do you look at your floor and dream of a beautiful wood surface—only to wake up to reality when you look at your flooring budget? At the same time, are you determined to go with more long-term durability than carpet can provide? If so, you owe it to yourself to check out the laminate flooring options we offer here at Lone Star Floors, your one-stop shop for flooring products and installation in Austin and Central Texas.
What Is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is a multi-layered product that does a stunningly convincing job of simulating actual wood or stone. A textured, photographic applique layer sits on the top-facing side to reproduce the precise color, style, and grain you want to present. This layer is then covered with a clear protective coating. Laminate flooring comes as interlocking tongue-and-groove planks which can be fitted together, easily and seamlessly, over a cushioning underlayment on your sub-floor.
Laminate flooring offers some tremendous benefits. It’s more affordable than genuine hardwood, tougher and longer-lasting than carpet. It resists scratches, stains, dents and moisture. Best of all, it’s available in a variety of styles, colors, textures and thicknesses that can enhance the beauty of any interior.
Which Kind of Laminate Flooring Is Right for You?
Here at Lone Star Floors, we can dazzle you with a wide range of laminate flooring styles and options in our Austin TX showroom. The two main categories of laminate flooring to consider include:
Wood Polymer Core (Waterproof Core Laminate)
This product is the way to go when you want a genuine wood product without the cost of genuine or engineered hardwood. The wood polymer core consists of several layers of rigid fiberboard bonded with melamine resins. The wood is then topped with a realistic photographic image of real wood an outermost layer of waterproof plastic. We’re proud to offer wood polymer/waterproof core laminate products by such leading names as Armstrong, EarthWerks and Southern Traditions.
Luxury Vinyl Plank/Tile
Do you have to go with a wood-based product to enjoy the luxurious look of wood? Thanks to modern breakthroughs in flooring technology, the answer is no! Lone Star Floors can provide you with luxury vinyl plank or tile that can simulate any surface you can imagine, including many different species and stains of hardwood. This synthetic product is made of thick, multi-layered PVC vinyl. The plank or tile is easy to install, waterproof, stain-resistant, easy to maintain—and much more budget-friendly than genuine hardwood.
