Laminate Flooring in Missouri

Laminate flooring is stylish, performance-driven, and looks just like real hardwood or stone through the magic of high-definition photography. It’s less expensive and simpler to care for than natural wood or granite: in fact, there are even fully waterproof options.


At Advance Carpet One Floor & Home, we have laminate flooring for every style and budget. As Missouri's favorite local flooring store, our Des Peres and O'Fallon showrooms are brimming with briilliant lamimate options for renters, homeowners, and business owners.  



Should I Choose Laminate Flooring Instead of Hardwood or Luxury Vinyl?


Hardwood, luxury vinyl, and laminate floors look the same from above, but they’re very distinct flooring types.

It’s tough to narrow down your selections with so many options to consider. Hardwood flooring is always in style, but this flooring type isn’t always the best decision depending on your budget and lifestyle.

Laminate flooring and luxury vinyl flooring are the most popular types of hardwood alternatives. While many assume these two are one and the same, there are some major distinctions to consider.



Laminate flooring is constructed by gluing together layers of composite wood and adding a wood look finish to the surface. This layered construction creates a more durable floor that’s resistant to warping, moisture, and foot traffic.

While both laminate and luxury vinyl flooring are wonderful hardwood alternatives, laminate floors are the most affordable- though never inferior!


Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

Not every laminate floor is “waterproof,” although every laminate floor resists moisture.

For your home’s splash zones, choose one of our incredible, 100% waterproof lamiante flooring products made by Mannington or Mohawk. Waterproof laminate flooors have a waterproof topcoat and a watertight core.

Choose a waterproof laminate floor if you have pets or little kids in your home. Waterproof laminate flooring is also your best bet for the bathroom, the kitchen, the laundry room, or commercial properties.


How Is Laminate Flooring Installed?

Laminate flooring installation is simple and fast, compared to many other types of floors.

In addition to being low-cost to install, your laminate floors are simple to maintain over the years. Unlike hardwood, it’s easy to replace individual planks when they become scratched or damaged.

This is because the laminate planks click-lock together like a puzzle piece over your subfloor, and don’t require glues or nails to stay put.

The installation process has multiple steps:



Can I Install My Own Laminate Floors?

Not so fast: despite its relative simplicity, professional flooring installation is generally your best bet. 

Here’s the facts: “easy” is relative when it comes to home renovations, and not all of us are handy with household tools. Errors can easily be made- and if errors are made by novice installers, your product warranty might become invalid.

In addition, a professional installation guarantees its results and if you’re not completely satisfied, our Beautiful Guarantee promises it will be redone, at no additional charge.

Play it safe and ask us about professional flooring installation options!
