If you’re fond of hardwood but are looking for a more cost-effective flooring option for your Princeton home, Oak laminate may be your match! Oak laminate flooring combines the traditional look of hardwood oak with the lasting value and easy cleaning of laminate. Read on to learn more about this versatile flooring option from the experts at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough.

Style

Oak laminate flooring comes in as many styles and species as real hardwood. It is available in thousands of colors and styles to match the variety of finishes available in its hardwood counterpart. Laminate is uniquely manufactured from particleboard and covered with a photograph of the wood grain to make it look like hardwood. This is what allows it to be so versatile.

Installation

Unlike hardwood oak flooring, laminate snaps or glues together, depending on the variety. This speeds up the flooring installation process and limits the disruption to your family’s day-to-day life.

Maintenance

Laminate flooring is durable and easy to care for. Regular sweeping and vacuuming of the floor will keep it clear of dust and debris that can dull the finish. You should also avoid wet mopping and cleaning with excessive water to avoid warping the boards. With proper care, oak laminate will last in your Princeton home for years to come.
