When you are working on real estate investment properties, flooring is one of the most important choices you have to make. Investment properties and rental homes under go a lot of abuse from children, pets, and feet going in and out. As a result, the flooring put in real estate investment properties needs to look high class but be made to last. That’s where laminate floors come in.

Why Laminate?

Laminate flooring is made of the same material used in laminate kitchen counter tops. Laminate flooring is actually a high quality picture of a surface, like wood or granite, adhered to a wood fiber surface and covered in several layers of clear coating or lamination. As a result, laminate flooring  very durable and can stand up to extreme temperature changes.  It can even withstand to scraping, scratching, hammering, and more. Wood floors can’t even stand up to that!

Easy Installation

Unlike hardwood floors, laminate floors are extremely easy to install.  The method of installation depends upon the brand of flooring. Some are easily glued onto the subflooring. Others are glued along the seam where the pieces join together. Most modern laminate flooring is a floating flooring. It requires no glue, screws, or nails. Instead, the pieces simply click into place.

The nice thing about laminate flooring  is it can be installed over any type of flooring or subflooring. Most of the laminate floors are installed on top of a foam padding. Foam padding varies in thicknesses. The thicker padding insulates as well as reduces the sound that carries throughout the house.

If the laminate flooring is damaged or loses its shine, it can be very lightly sanded to remove the initial protective barrier. Then, a stain if desired can be lightly applied to the flooring with a rag, working in the direction of the grain. Wait for the stain to dry. Then, apply a laminate sealer to the floor. Once it is dry, the sealer creates a smooth surface and a moisture barrier.

In real estate investment properties, renovations that last for years actually save you money in the long run. When it comes to floors, cabinets, or anything else, long lasting, durable choices are what buyers and other investors want.
