6 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is one of the most popular flooring options around the world that can give a unique and durable floor to you that is very easy to clean and resistant to scratch as well. However, if you want to get the best result from your laminate flooring it is very important that you should chose the best laminate flooring and here are 6 mistakes that you should avoid when choosing laminate flooring for your need.

6 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing Laminate Flooring

Do not trust only on board thickness:
Paying more attention of thickness instead of quality is one of the very common mistakes that people do while buying the laminate flooring and we would suggest you not to repeat this mistake in your selection. Indeed, thickness of board is one of the very important parts of laminate flooring, but just thickness will not do the trick and we suggest you to pay more attention of quality of the board along with its thickness. So choose a thicker board, but check for its material and manufacturing method as well to understand more about its quality.

Do not buy without checking certifications:
This is the most important thing that you should consider while buying the laminate flooring. Before you finalize any of your laminate flooring, make sure you check its ISO 9001 and ISO 4001 ratings. ISO 9001 rating give you an assurance about quality of the board material and ISO 4001 rating makes sure this particular board fulfills all the commitment to environment.

Do not buy it without understanding your specific need:
Just choosing high quality flooring is not enough, but you also need to choose it according to your foot traffic as well and we would suggest you avoid all kind of mistakes in its selection. For example, if you need to buy it for your home with less foot traffic area such as bedroom, then you can choose AC1 rating board. However, if you need it for department store or similar other traffic area, then you need to choose AC 5 rating flooring board. Here, AC rating is resistance to wear for laminate and its durability is directly proportional to number.

Do not buy without understanding the warranty according to your need:
In most of the cases you can get 10 year to lifetime warranty, but most of these warranties are applicable for home usage only and that too when installed according to their guidance. However, some laminate flooring manufacturers provide you commercial warranty as well and if you are buying it for commercial purpose make sure you ask for its warranty before finalizing it.

Do not choose it, if it does not have UV protection:
This is another very good example of common mistakes that people do while choosing the laminate flooring. Many people see the glossy surface or a textured design and they choose the boards for their flooring without checking its UV protection. After few years of usage, they find that color is fading due to sunlight and then they regret for not choosing the flooring with UV surface. So make sure you also choose only one of those laminate flooring that's provider you UV surface for all kind of protection from sunlight and similar exposures.

Do not buy the exact fitting board:
This is one of the biggest mistakes that people do while selecting the laminate flooring, they try to get the exact size flooring for their surface area. However, we strongly recommend not repeating this mistake and we suggest people to buy at least 3 to 4 inch bigger boards then their actuall fitting size. This extra size can give you an assurance of best fitting in every situation and even if you had some problem or mistake in your measurement, this extra size can rectify that problem and you will not need to add a small patch on corner of your flooring.

Other than this, we it is also suggested that you should buy only those boards that are designed to attach tightly with each other and can stay in level once fixed to its position. In addition to this cost of laminate flooring is another important factor that you need to consider while buying it so you can get good quality flooring in your budget as well.
