The flooring is one of the most visible aspects of any commercial building, so you want it to make a statement.
Because people walk on it constantly, you need a material durable enough to withstand years of use with minimal upkeep.
When we assist customers with selecting the right materials for their projects, we often recommend laminate flooring. Why?
With Proper Care, Laminate Flooring Lasts for Decades
Many of the clients we help are associated with large-scale, frequently-trafficked buildings, including:
- Sports facilities
- Retail outlets
- Office spaces
If you’re a contractor or other decision maker associated with a substantial project, longevity is undoubtedly one of your primary concerns.
When you care for laminate flooring correctly with the recommended techniques, it can last up to 30 years. That means it’s a smart choice if customers or superiors demand long-lasting, visually appealing options.
Ideal for Heavily Trafficked Areas Where People Spend Hours on Their Feet
When employees spend all or most of their days standing, they quickly realize the type of flooring makes a difference in overall comfort.
While selecting flooring for an area that gets consistent foot traffic, there are several things you should consider, such as:
- Amount of traction provided
- Ability to mop up spills quickly
- Whether the floor has shock-absorption properties
- Soundproofing characteristics
One desirable factor of laminate flooring is it typically has an underlayment that gives the material a springy feel. As a result, people could become less fatigued while standing on and walking across the surface compared to other types of floors.
It’s also possible to put materials under the laminate that dampen sound. Taking that approach could be preferable if you’re involved in a project where people’s productivity could go down due to consistent exposure to loud footsteps.
A Sensible Alternative to Wood Floors
Many of our commercial clients prefer laminate flooring to wood floors for a couple of reasons.
First, there’s no need to wax laminate, which could help your customers save time and money associated with hiring cleaning services.
Second, whereas it could take weeks or longer to install hardwood, laminate can be put in place in a matter of days, depending on the size of the room.
Many of today’s installation options have pieces that fit together quickly, which could help you keep a project’s timeline on schedule.
