Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
When it comes to new flooring, there are so many choices that it is almost impossible to pick right away. You can choose from bamboo hardwoods, cork flooring, laminates and hardwoods. Don't let the laminates scare you because they now come in a wide range of colors and patterns that are beautiful. There are even a wide range of choices for your garage!
No matter which of your flooring ideas you decide to go with, make sure that you understand exactly how to care for that flooring once it is installed. There are differences in flooring. What works wonders on one flooring material might seriously ruin another floor. Some cleaners will work like magic on one kind of flooring and just stain others. Learning the appropriate methods for caring for your floor will provide you with an assurance that you won't have to replace it again for quite awhile (feasibly).
