Stradwick’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Peterborough, ON, is your destination for the best laminate flooring. As your local flooring experts, we can help you make the right decisions for you, your home, and your loved ones.
While once considered a shoddy alternative to hardwood, modern laminate flooring is anything but inferior. Advances in digital imaging have gifted us laminate flooring that looks and feels like natural hardwood. If you’re leaning towards laminate flooring, here’s what you should know.
When it comes to smarter flooring decisions, “real” isn’t necessarily better. Natural hardwood floors are undoubtedly stunning, but they have certain limitations. Laminate flooring is manufactured, rather than milled or harvested. It never requires refinishing and is extremely budget-friendly. As technology continues expanding, there are now countless laminate flooring options to fit every budget and style.
Laminate flooring is a smart choice for homes with pets and kids. Many laminate floors come with a waterproof locking system and waterproof surface coating. With these hidden weapons, you won’t have to stress over spills and damages, while enjoying the looks of your favorite hardwood species, finishes, and styles.
Laminate floors are durable enough to go in bathrooms and kitchens. Installing laminate floors is a simple affair. Nails aren’t necessary. Most laminate floors are lock-and-click: no adhesives required. With a floating laminate floor, individual planks can be replaced as needed.
As your local flooring retailer, we carry all the popular laminate flooring brands, as well as Carpet One exclusive products. To learn more about laminate flooring, or to browse our latest selections, please visit us soon at 701 The Queensway in Peterborough, ON.

Caring for Laminate Flooring
