Fixed Moldings Can Cause Peaking Even if there is room to expand, your laminated flooring cannot take advantage of it if the moldings cannot move. This can sometimes be a nightmare to track down if the original installer was not consistent. Since laminate flooring is intended to be floating, which means not attached to either the moldings or the sub-floor, any solid point can cause an issue. Amateur installers will occasionally attach the laminate floor to molding to keep it from moving during install, or simply because they don't know any better.
Economical A typical laminate flooring is and extremely economical solution, if you take in consideration the costs of alternate flooring solutions. Solid hardwood floors will require 4-5 refinishings and carpets and vinyls will need to be replaced at least twice (depending on traffic loads), while laminates don't require anything.
A good quality jute rug pad is completely safe for laminate floors, prolongs the life of the rug and adds comfort. By a good quality, I mean choosing one that is made of recycled material. There are plenty of these so called jute rug pads on the market that are based of polypropylene, which is another word for plastic.
Installing laminate floors is something that many DIY's can do by themselves or with the help of a few friends. Laminate floors have become a popular home upgrade since they are easy to put in and don't take nearly as long as when installing hardwood floors or real tile or stone. Installation again is by floating the floor - gluing the planks together and ensuring a firm join by using a floor clamp.
Laminates are extremely impact, can resist damages like wearing and is very stain and scratch resistant, making it a better option if you have pets at home.
