Laminate

 

Seamless and Efficient

The entire process from product selection, to on-site estimating, to scheduling and installation was seamless and efficient. The installers always called ahead of time to update their arrival time, were friendly and helpful, and cleaned up after themselves at the end of the day. No stress; no strain on our part. Too bad we won’t need carpeting for another 10-12 years or so; my wife and I will miss these guys! Read more

Extremely Pleased

I use Classique Floors because Judith supports some of our local communities like SnowCap, and puts ads in the East Portland community news. They are professional, listen to your needs and wants, and I was extremely pleased with the carpet layers. Read more

Customer Service Plus!! I recently had a large floor area replaced due to a manufacturing defect. Ryan came out, saw the issue, submitted the paperwork and got the ball rolling. He never said or implied that I was at fault. The job was quickly put in the loop and started. John and Andrew worked efficiently and left a clean work area daily. They were pleasant and communicated what was happening and why. After 7 days, they were finished! But after a closer look several finishing details had been … Read more Theresa HawkinsMilwaukie

Laminate

Laminate’s smartly balanced durability, good looks and value pricing means you can expand your decorating ideas without increasing your budget or sacrificing quality.

  • Laminates are available in a broad variety of handsomely crafted designs, including vivid, swirling wood grains so natural looking you’d swear they were solid hardwood and ones that re-create the ornate appeal of tile or stone.
  • Laminate floors provide rugged durability that make it practical for any room in your home.
  • Laminate planks and tiles are interlocking and easy to work with and can be installed over most non-textile existing flooring
  • Laminate flooring is stain, fade, and moisture resistant.
  • Laminate flooring is eco-friendly and easy to replace with no danger to the environment.

Tiles
Laminate tiles are typically patterned or solid-colored squares that are installed as floating floors and don’t require the use of guns or nails to secure them to the floor. Each tile clicks in place with interlocking joints.

Planks
Planks are just like tiles but are rectangular in shape. They also click together with interlocking joints and do not require glue.

Distressed Wood
Distressed laminate flooring has been made to purposely look imperfect, making both more authentic looking and more likely to hold up to hide actual scratches and scuffs.

Hand-scraped Wood
Hand-scraping is just a way to distress wood by scraping the wood to make it appear older and more rustic.

Embossed
Textured laminate floors are created by embossing, wherein heat and pressure are applied to give the laminate a raised surface pattern and a more realistic look and feel, since the embossing matches the grain patterns.

Stones & Naturals
Obtain the appearance of high–quality marble or slate floors with stone laminate flooring, which can imitate the durability and beauty of stone, slate, granite and marble less expensively.

  • If you’re wondering why laminate flooring can vary so widely in price, below are some of the features you’ll find in the higher prices options:
  • The amount of aluminum oxide, which makes it more scratch resistant. The higher the amount the more expensive the laminate.
  • The number of patterns that repeat themselves. The selections that have a larger number of impressions and fewer repetitions of the same pattern are higher priced and more accurately mimic the look of real wood.
  • The length and quality of the warranty. Higher priced laminates have longer warranties and more options.
  • The texture and depth, which gives the flooring a more realistic feeling and look will be more pronounced in the more expensive laminate choices.
  • Installation prices are typically the same across the board.

Routine Care and Cleaning

Vacuum laminate floors using the wand attachment. Use a dust mop or wipe with a damp cloth for general cleaning. For spills, wipe up immediately with a cloth or sponge. In sandy areas or at the beach, sweep or vacuum regularly. When necessary, use a well-squeezed, damp mop with a Laminate floor cleaner. Caution: Floors can become slippery when wet. Allow time for the floor to dry after washing. Immediately wipe up wet areas from spills, foreign substances or wet feet.

DO NOT:

  • Use soap-based detergents or “mop and shine” products, as these may leave a dull film on your floor.
  • Use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or scouring powder which can scratch your floor.
  • Wax or polish your floor.
