Getting ready to install laminate flooring? If so, there is one name brand that deserves more than a second glance: Wilsonart laminate flooring.
This type of Wilsonart flooring can be laid over any existing floor covering except carpet. That means no worrying about pulling up tile, linoleum, or even existing hardwood flooring. In the business, this is known as a floating floor, which is exactly what you will feel like doing once you realize how much work that saves.
Wilson laminate flooring comes offered in 75 different styles under such categories as the Red Label Collection, the Red Label Hand Scraped Collection, Estate Plus, and Wilsonart Classic. The Estate Plus and Wilsonart Classic categories have been certified by the North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA); among the first in the flooring industry.
Unlike real solid hardwood floor coverings, Wilson laminates do not fade when exposed to the suns ultraviolet rays. That means you can open all the drapes and blinds and let the sun shine in without the worry that your flooring will be damaged in spots where its exposed to the sun.
Not only is Wilson laminate flooring sun-resistance, it is incredibly tough. Wilsonart’s products are known for their durability; the company has supplied bowling alley flooring using their laminates for more than a quarter of a century. And if you have a dog and also have existing hardwood floors, you know the two do not mix. Dog claws can mar and scratch hardwood flooring, yet Wilsonart laminate flooring remains impervious to whatever claw damage your dog can dish out!
Perhaps one of the best things about Wilson laminate flooring lies in its easy-clean character. Although it resembles hardwood flooring, you won’t ever have to wax or refinish a Wilsonart floor. Simpy go over it with a damp mop when it gets really dirty; otherwise regular sweeping and vacuuming is all the maintenance this flooring needs.
So keep all this in mind if you are on the way to the home improvement store to decide which product you will be choosing to install laminate flooring with. If you don’t select Wilsonart, you just might be in for less value and more work than you intended!
