Windy City Carpet Services Inc.;
Serving Chicagoland's flooring needs since 1979
Laminate floors have quickly become the flooring of choice for homeowners throughout the Chicago area because of its low cost and rugged durability. Laminate flooring can be compared to laminated kitchen countertops , which are combinations of layers of wood and melamine plastic designed to look like real wood, stone or other textures.
Laminate flooring is available in planks, strips and tiles. Originally, it was glued into place, but recently manufacturers have introduced glueless and pre-glued products that can cut installation time in half.
Laminate flooring can be installed on top of your existing floor if it’s in good shape. Some of the glueless floors, can even be removed and taken it with you if you move.
One disadvantage of laminate flooring is that it cannot be sanded, refinished or stripped. However, since they are so durable - and backed by lengthy warranties – this is rarely an issue. Windy City Carpets Service sells and installs laminate floors from all the major manufacturers.
