If you love the look of hardwood or tile flooring but you don’t love the price, laminate flooring is a great option. Our laminate flooring is indistinguishable from real hardwood. It captures the slight color variations and distinctive grain of the finest hardwood flooring at a fraction of the price.

Laminate plank flooring resembles natural wood flooring down to the grain using a technology called “embossing in register.” This intensifies the depth and texture of the floor for an ultra-natural look. And unlike real hardwood, laminate flooring resists scratches, stains, and fading.

The latest innovation in laminate click introduces a completely waterproof product to address issues of all forms of moisture damage. They are available in 2 different styles – Wood plank and natural stone look.   


Whether your home features classic, trendy, or eclectic décor, we can help you find a laminate flooring option that matches your style and suits your budget.

The color palette for hardwood flooring is rather limited by nature, but laminate flooring comes in a wide variety of colors from natural wood hues to bold, exciting shades. Laminate tile flooring also features natural stone looks. 

Laminate flooring has many widths available to meet any style and personal preference. 

Laminate flooring has many finishes to accommodate your personal preferences. They are available in a wide range from matte to high gloss and everything in between. 



The versatility and durability of laminate flooring make it a wonderful option for just about any lifestyle.

Laminate flooring has no limits to where it can be installed. It’s equally suited to high-traffic areas, bright sunny rooms, and rooms that are frequently humid, such as bathrooms.   

Laminate flooring is very easy to clean and maintain. Sweeping and occasional cleaning with specialized cleaner is all you need. If you have laminate tile, you’ll never need to worry about scrubbing stains out of grout.

Laminate flooring is an ideal choice for homes with kids and pets. However, for a very active and carefree lifestyle, the waterproof laminate click is the ultimate choice. Multilayer construction can handle heavy traffic, and durable finishes resist stains and most scratches. 


Laminate flooring is an exceptional alternative to hardwood and ceramic or porcelain flooring, but the cost per square foot depends on a variety of factors.

Design, embossing, and sourcing  have the most impact on laminate pricing, but a realistic look is worth the price. Thickness, density and widths are also a factor in  the  pricing of laminate flooring.

While all laminate products feature superior durability for home use, laminate wood flooring is also available for commercial (heavy duty)  applications. 

Underlayment (padding) is required for most laminate installations  it is a buffer between the planks or tiles and the subfloor and it limits sound transmission for a quieter result. It also serves as a moisture barrier on concrete subfloors. 


Laminate flooring installation is a popular choice for DIY projects, but to guarantee you’re satisfied with the end result, you might want to leave it to the professionals.

In most instances some preparation is required. A level and clean subfloor is necessary to achieve a satisfactory installation.

Some brands of laminate planks occasionally require “acclimation.” That means they should acclimate to the room’s specific temperature and humidity levels for 24-48 hours before installing. 

All laminate brands feature “lock and fold” technology, which is why laminate flooring is such a popular DIY project. But to ensure perfect, hassle-free installation, take advantage of the professional flooring installation service at Express Floors To Go.
