Laminate Floors in North Carolina  


Laminate flooring is an affordable, easy to install, and stylish flooring option. It’s unique because it’s made using layers of wood composite layers with a decorative wood look layer toward the surface. This makes laminate floors water-repellent, durable, and affordable.


At A & B Carpet One Floor & Home, we offer a top selection of laminate flooring in a wide array of styles and colors, including white oak, hickory, maple, cherry, and other hardwood flooring looks.

How Does Laminate Flooring REALLY Compare to Hardwood Flooring?

The original “hardwood imposter,” modern laminate flooring is more realistic and sturdier than ever!


Laminate flooring comes in wood-look panels that mirror the look and feel of actual hardwood. At the surface of each laminate plank is a visual rendering of natural hardwood, including popular species like white oak, maple, birch, cherry, hickory, and more. Below are layers of compressed wood that lend the planks their strength and endurance.


Though a manufactured product, laminate flooring is sometimes a smarter way to floor than traditional hardwood flooring, which is made entirely of natural wood.


Among its countless other perks, laminate floors are:





How is Laminate Flooring Installed?

Installing laminate floors is simple and fast when compared to other types of hard surface flooring.


Most of our laminate flooring products are available with a simple click-lock installation method that doesn’t require slow-drying adhesives. Click-lock floors usually “float” over the subfloor and are easy to repair and replace.


We also have glue-down laminate options, which are ideal in more high-traffic settings. These flooring types are permanently placed for the highest degree of resilience.



Is Laminate Flooring Good for the Kitchen & Bath?

Why yes, it certainly can be, if chosen with care!


All laminate flooring is made to manage regular, everyday household moisture. Certain products, however, can take this even further. Waterproof laminate flooring is one such product. It’s great for spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and entryways. Choose waterproof laminate floors for the most pet-friendly or child-friendly option.


When installing laminate floors in the kitchen & bath, it’s important to pay careful attention to the products you choose and how they’re installed. This means not only choosing a moisture-repellent product, but also installing it with tighter seams, in addition to properly sealing every edge to further guard against moisture and splashes.




So, Where Else Can I Install Laminate Floors?


Laminate flooring is perfect for anywhere in your home, as well as in light-use commercial businesses.
