Advantages of laminate flooring

Insulating Properties

Laminate floors have the great advantage of being Thermo-acoustic insulators, which makes them very useful for homes developed in condominiums where privacy is part of certain privileges that are often not counted on. Vinyl laminate floors are the best option to fulfill this insulating characteristic.

Aesthetic Design

When buying laminate flooring, you will have the advantage of finding a wide variety in terms of visual image, so you almost always get the guarantee of a harmonious and aesthetically rich place. One of the most used types of laminate flooring is wood. They provide elegance and style to many spaces, having an easy installation that makes them accessible to any pocket.

Easy installation 

Laminate floors stand out among the others, for their ease in the installation process. Especially when we talk about floating laminate floors, which are characterized because we can place them on top of an existing floor, as long as it is basically solid and level.

The installation process is quick, initially, a layer of plastic and an insulation layer is added. Because we bonded the planks to each other and not to a subfloor, they rarely require the use of adhesives. We can put together them as puzzles and we are sure that you will find a wide variety of designs, styles, colors, and textures on floating floors.

Disadvantages of laminate flooring


Wood texture and details disappear

Although laminate flooring is very easy to maintain, the secret to its durability lies in daily consistency. So without extensive maintenance and care, laminate flooring can deteriorate. They reflect one of the most common causes of its deterioration because the wood textures ‌disappear, which is not aesthetically pleasing and can only be fixed with a new change of floors.

Humidity intolerance

Special care must be taken with cleaning techniques and the area of ​​the house where you install laminate floors since they are not resistant to moisture, so you should create a waterproofing system in case of direct and constant contact with liquids and even doing it that way the damage is going to be unavoidable.

Separations at the point of junction

The separation or lifting of the corners of the laminate flooring pieces. This is usually one of the biggest disadvantages found in this type of flooring. Poor placement causes all this or because the internal floor environment is not optimal, ‌we did not prepare it in the correct way.
