Laminate Flooring and Installation

 

 

"StairSteps" supplies and installs various types, colours & textures of laminate flooring. We tend to stick with 12.3 mm - 15.3 mm thickness products. Our main area's of service cover the Oakville, Mississauga and Toronto area's. Unless you plan to install over concrete we strongly suggest not using a laminate flooring product that is thinner than 12 mm, 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 "Made in Germany" 12.3 mm thick laminate flooring product that incorporates the tab lock system.

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.  But we will also install Engineered hardwood that you have already purchased.

Although milling issues in laminate flooring are not as prevalent as they are in hardwood flooring, some caution in this department is worth noting. 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 are a representation of the resistance of laminate floors to abrasion, stains, impact as well as burns are important. it's better to install a laminate flooring with a higher class rating than a lower one when in doubt. If you are considering laminate flooring for your home, according to the Association of European Producers of Laminate Flooring (EPLF), AC2 is all one needs.

But in our opinion installing a minimum of AC3 and AC4 if your home experiences heavy traffic makes more sense. AC4 pricing, colour & texture as well as tab lock systems are available at an affordable price today. Remember, all it takes is, one day, one pair of stilettos in a hurry, and you will be thankful for AC4
