Laminate Flooring and Installation

Accent On Floors has developed our reputation in the Hopewell Virginia area based on our versatility and our ability to meet the needs of our customers. We do this by making sure that we carry the kinds of flooring our customers need, even when our customers may not realize they need it. Most of our customers are not familiar with laminate, but they all agree that laminate is the perfect answer for their situation after we explain what laminate really is.

What Is Laminate?


Laminate flooring is a hybrid type of product made from wood chips and several other elements. The wood chips are pressed into a plank that has a sheet of vinyl on the bottom side and a photograph covered by a layer of durable protection on the top. The photograph is what gives the laminate its look and that include anything from tile to hardwood.

The protective layer is extremely strong and can resist a great deal of wear and tear. Laminate is installed by locking the planks together using a tongue and groove approach, and the whole thing is placed on top of a special sheet that protects the laminate from moisture. Most laminate floors are not nailed in place, which helps to make them easier to install and repair.

Why Should I Use Laminate?


We find that a lot of businesses use laminate because it can give the rich and beautiful look of hardwood, but at a much lower cost. Laminate also tends to be more durable than softer hardwoods, which makes it a smart investment.

Since laminate can look like almost any other flooring, its versatility is appreciated by people who are on a budget. Pet owners who want the look of a tile floor may turn to laminate because laminate can tolerate the kind of daily abuse pets would give a tile floor. Instead of having to maintain a tile floor, a pet owner can rest easy knowing that their laminate floor is absorbing the abuse and still looking great.

Accent On Floors also recommends laminate flooring to people who are turning their basement or garage into living space and want a durable floor that is inexpensive. Laminate floors can expand and contract with the changes in the weather, so they tend to do well in place like basements and garages where the moisture and temperature in the room can change frequently.

We carry quality flooring products by manufacturers such as Shaw Industries and Mohawk. Our showroom is filled with many of the laminate choices we have, and we can show you even more options through our direct relationships with our manufacturers.

The best way to understand laminate is to come see it for yourself. You may be walking on what you think is a real hardwood floor for 10 minutes before we finally tell you that it is a laminate. In some cases, laminate can be that convincing.

We have laminate planks that come in all types of designs and sizes, and we will also take the time to explain the entire installation process to you. If you want a certain type of floor but the materials are out of your price range, then we probably have a laminate floor that will fit your needs. Laminate is versatile, inexpensive and extremely durable. If you are designing a room for kids or pets, or you are putting something together that may be exposed to changes in air moisture and temperature a little more than the rest of your home, then laminate is your ideal solution.
