What’s the best type of laminate flooring for Wirral rooms?

Laminate flooring provides the look of wood at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. Also more water-resistant than solid wood, this makes laminate flooring suitable for entrance areas where people come in from rainy Wirral days dripping water and treading in the mud.

There are several types of laminate flooring, so which is the best for your rooms?

An important factor for most users is the cost, but remember that get what you pay for. If you go for the cheapest laminate you can find, don’t expect the floor to last long; it could stain, peel or warp after a short while. For rooms that are not used a lot, cheaper laminates should be fine, but in commercial properties and rooms with heavy foot traffic, thicker premium quality laminates are recommended as they are durable, stain-resistant, moisture-resistant and scratch-resistant.

Laminate is graded for durability, with AC1 being the lowest, and A5 suitable for heavy-duty and commercial use.

Wirral people appreciate the look of natural wood, so want laminate flooring that looks as realistic as possible. Modern digital printing technology has created authentic-looking laminate planks, but expect to pay more for better looking flooring.

If you want to install laminate flooring on top of underfloor heating, make sure that the manufacturer specifies that it is suitable for this use, and you also need the correct underlay.

Laminate flooring is a good choice if you want a practical floor covering at a reasonable cost.
