FLOOR Your Information

Gail George – May 27, 2013


Hardwood flooring is now recognized as one of the easiest surfaces to keep clean, thanks to finishes that seal out dirt and moisture. In addition, flooring made from the wood of such broadleaf trees as oak, ash, cherry, maple, hickory and walnut can be incorporated into any decorating style to add character and warmth. While strip and plank flooring remain very popular, laminated flooring is gaining increased recognition in this country as a viable option. Consisting of thin layers of hardwood laminated under pressure to layers of wood and plywood, laminated flooring is installed by joining together prefinished units. The beauty of this product rests in the fact that it can be installed relatively quickly to a finished state and that top quality is assured by manufacture under controlled, factory conditions. It is also very stable and exceptionally resistant to warping and cracking.

Laminate flooring represents the state of the art. If you’re thinking about hardwood flooring for your house, please come talk to the friendly folks at LIBERTY CARPET.
