Laminate Flooring and Installation

 

 

"StairSteps" supplies and installs various types and colours of laminate flooring. We tend to stick with 12.3mm - 15.3mm thickness products. Our main area's of service cover the Oakville, Mississauga and Toronto area's. Unless you plan on an installation over concrete we strongly suggest not using a laminate flooring product that is thinner than 12mm, unless the sub-floors are extremely flat with joists 12" on centre.. Our most popular product that we provide and install time and time again is a 15.3mm high-gloss laminate that closely resembles real hardwood. This product does not disappoint.

We are not a store. We are professional installers with vast experience in laminate flooring. We know what brands and grades have met our previous customer's standards. Please read our Products & Services page to learn more about us and how we operate.

Although milling issues in laminate flooring are not as prevalent as they are in hardwood flooring, some caution in this department is worth taking. We have come across laminate products that do not click together properly. If you notice a price that seems to good to be true, just investigate before purchasing.

Laminate flooring is an inexpensive way to create a new clean space. Some have the misconception that Laminate flooring is not durable. take a look below for an explanation of what suits your specific application.

Although Abrasion Class (AC) ratings, which is a representation of resistance to abrasion, stains, impact as well as burns are important. if you are considering laminate flooring for your home, you don't need to go overboard.
