Swiftlock Laminate Flooring
Once you’ve decided that the wooden look is right for your home, and that buying wood laminate flooring is the best option for you, you’re probably thinking that you’re done with the hardest part. Think again. The most difficult part in choosing laminate floors will probably be deciding on a brand. This determines the difficulty of install, the price, the durability, and, of course, the look. If you’ve elected not to buy from the limited selection of the hardware store, where all of the laminate floor options will fit on one wall, you’ll definitely need help deciding which brand to look at first. With that in mind, let’s take a look at Swiftlock Laminate Flooring. Lots Of Options You’re probably got a pretty decent idea of what you want your home’s laminate wood floors to look like upon completion, so your first step should be finding a brand who makes it. It’s a good bet that Swiftlock Laminate Flooring at least has something very similar to whatever it is you’re looking for. They have more than 160 laminated flooring varieties listed on their site right this very moment. They don’t split them all into
various collections like Quick Step Laminate Flooring, but they do list the thickness right by the name of the selection, and that’s probably even better. Since most people know nothing about what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to a laminate floor, I’d suggest taking the time to check a few different websites so that you can get a good idea of what features you want. Cost While shopping around for Swiftlock Laminate Flooring, you’re likely to notice the words durable and affordable are nearly omnipresent. To my surprise, Amazon does not stock Swiftlock, which meant I had to look elsewhere to compare prices. Armstrong is the parent company of Swiftlock, and Swiftlock is generally their cheap laminate flooring. In fact, where Swiftlock is sold, they’re usually the lowest priced laminated floors. Difficulty Of Installation To anyone that is new at installing flooring, laminate is definitely a good option. It’s lighter than either solid or engineered, and can often last just as long, if not longer. Installing laminate flooring of any kind is likely to be one of the easiest, if not one of the quickest, home improvement projects that you could tackle. Swiftlock makes laminate flooring installation even easier by offering
comprehensive install instructions on their website. As it’s a very well known and well used brand, any quirks you may encounter should be easily conquerable using the web alone. Durability Once you have your wood laminate floor installed, the only thing you have to worry about is durability. When it comes to your typical floor traffic, Swiftlock flooring holds up pretty well. There are quite a few reports about warping, even without standing water, and chipping when sharp or heavy objects are dropped on it. Unlike engineered or solid, you cannot buff a laminated floor, so, although it should be dent and scratch resistant, anything that manages to damage it will require you to change boards. Swiftlock products do seem to have quite a few complaints aimed at it, but that may just be a symptom of its popularity. Most resellers list Swiftlock Laminate Flooring among their top sellers.
