This isn’t your mother’s linoleum. Laminate flooring has advanced to the point where you can have a low-maintenance, stain-resistant floor that recreates the exact likeness of wood, tile, brick or stone. Laminate has come a long way since it was invented in 1977. Glue-less laminate was introduced in 1996. As a cost-effective alternative to hardwood, it quickly became popular.
Our laminate flooring is made from recycled material, and our professional, efficient and courteous installation crew will have your laminate flooring installed in no time, with minimal disruption to your routine.
Laminate is durable, long lasting and easy to care for. While laminate is not ideal for floors below ground level or in the bathroom, any other room in your house – particularly high-traffic areas – would benefit from the beautiful look and amazing durability of laminate.

Benefits of Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring installs easily, wears incredibly well, and comes in an array of breathtaking colors and styles.
Laminate is less expensive than hardwood flooring, and you can’t even tell the difference. Today’s laminate looks so much like the real thing that you will find yourself wondering, “Is it laminate … or is it hardwood?”
There are styles that convey the authentic look of wood or the classic appeal of ceramic tile.
A wide selection of shades and finishes allow you to choose the wood look down to the very type (oak, maple, hickory and more), and now laminates can duplicate even more of hardwood’s attributes. As laminate flooring is a printed strip of vinyl over a composite board, many textures and styles of other flooring materials can be replicated.
Some laminates offer beveled, distressed, and highly textured options, giving your laminate floor not only the look of hardwood, but the feel of as well.
Stone laminate looks like the real thing, be it limestone or adobe, but will save you money and is so easy to clean!
The eco-conscious often select laminates because they are inherently “green,” using fewer resources and far less wood in their manufacture. Factor in their durability, with some styles offering warranties up to 25 years, and replacement may never be necessary. At Aroma’z Mercer Carpeting and Flooring, our flooring is made from recycled materials.
Is Laminate Flooring Right For You?
Laminates provide a beautiful look that works well within your budget. The reality of flooring costs and what your budget permits may indicate that laminate is the best choice. Consider and compare the costs of laminate and hardwood flooring to decide what is right for you. Hardwood is not only more expensive to buy, but more costly to install as well.
Laminate, though, provides some distinct advantages. As laminates are made from pressed wood covered with vinyl, it offers more durability, is less likely to suffer scratches from heavy wear, and is easier to clean and maintain.
Unlike hardwoods, laminate wood flooring has UV protection that has been built into the surface. Most laminate floor surfaces are very resistant to moisture damage, fading, and staining. Many of the reputable laminate flooring manufacturers offer 10 to 25 year warranties on the finish.
Ease of installation is another plus, with its tongue-and-groove system.
