Thanks to the click and lock system, these planks can be installed quickly and easily. Thicker planks can even create a more even look for your floors, correcting imperfections that existed before. This “floating floor” can be placed over a variety of subfloors, and little to no prep work is necessary, in most cases. What’s even better, unlike solid hardwood, once your installers are finished, you can walk on your new floors immediately.
With the addition of laminate that is now waterproof, this flooring is perfect for every room in your home. Regular laminate wasn’t the best option for laundry rooms and bathrooms, but with the waterproof option, you can install it in those rooms, and even in basements, with absolute peace of mind.
In normal situations, you might hear a clicking sound as you walk across this material. That isn’t a problem for many homeowners, but if it’s something you find distasteful, you also have the option of having underpadding installed to cut down on that noise. It also gives the material a softer underfoot feel.
