When it comes to flooring, the choices can be overwhelming. Laminate floors are a high-quality, easy choice for homeowners and RevWood waterproof laminate flooring offers a perfect solution for homeowners who want the benefits of rich, attractive hardwood—without the hassle.
In this article, we’ll give you all the information you need to decide if RevWood is right for you.
What is Laminate Wood Flooring?
Laminate floors are a budget-friendly alternative to hardwood made from a wooden base material. Recycled materials are pressed together and treated to form solid, hearty planks. The boards are then covered with a detailed, high-resolution image of wood grain, stone, or tile in a wide variety of styles. Finally, the planks are topped off with a clear protective layer. This gives laminate floors their finished, detailed appearance.
When everything is put together, the planks are finished with a groove so they can fit together seamlessly. Installed over an existing floor, laminate is a “floating floor” that doesn’t need to be glued or nailed down.
What comes to mind when you think of laminate flooring? For most people, it’s affordability. Laminate flooring offers many of the same benefits as hardwood or stone without the price tag. But laminate floors aren’t just affordable—they’re reliable, too!
Here are some of the many other benefits of going with laminate:
- Easy installation – One of the biggest benefits to laminate is that it’s simple to install. Without the need to glue, nail, or staple, professional—or DIY—installation is quick and easy.
- Durability – Many people go for laminate flooring because of its durability. Although laminate can’t be sanded like hardwood, its protective layer will keep it up to snuff for years. Laminate floors can last up to 25 years if well maintained, and waterproof styles like RevWood Plus can improve the durability even more.
- Scratch resistance – If you have pets, rowdy kids, or just like to stay busy, scratch-resistant flooring is a must. Unlike traditional hardwood, laminate is highly resistant to the everyday wear and tear that comes from moving furniture, unclipped claws, and scooting toys.
- Allergen-free – Carpets are major trapping zones for allergens like dust, pet dander, and pollen. Smooth floors like laminate can help keep these irritants out of your home—and make tidying up much easier.
There are obviously a lot of reasons to choose laminate flooring in general—so why choose RevWood?
What Makes RevWood Flooring Special?
RevWood waterproof flooring touts all the benefits of laminate flooring with added technology to improve its appearance and durability. Here are some of the unique features that these floors from Mohawk have to offer:
One of the most common causes of damage to laminate floors is water—but RevWood Plus laminate floors utilize special technology to keep the moisture out.
First, RevWood planks feature the Uniclic locking system. This unique design not only allows for easy installation but holds planks together seamlessly to lock out moisture. The edges of the planks are then treated with Hydroseal. This water-repellant coating stops even more moisture from seeping through the cracks and prevents the planks from absorbing moisture, swelling, and warping.
#2: Damage Protection
RevWood waterproof flooring is coated with a tough, durable top layer that resists all kinds of damage, including scratching and denting. This protective layer keeps RevWood floors looking like new for longer. On top of the protective layer, many RevWood styles are covered by Pet Plus Protection—a warranty that covers pet accidents and messes.
Of course, one of the most important features of any flooring is its appearance—and RevWood delivers a huge variety of high-resolution, high-quality styles to match any home. RevWood laminates are designed using GenuEdge technology, a feature that improves the appearance even more. GenuEdge wraps the laminated image layer around the planks to create a seamless, detailed appearance that looks like the real thing. It also creates even more a waterproof seal, preventing leakage to the underfloor!
RevWood comes in a wide variety of styles that match traditional hardwood ranging from deep, colorful oaks, beautifully patterned pines, and solid maples. Styles can be form-fitted to match any style and any room, including basements.
RevWood waterproof laminate flooring is the new generation of laminate. Durable, water-resistant, and long-lasting, it offers many of the benefits of hardwood without sacrificing appearance. Head to an S&G Carpet and More showroom today to find the perfect flooring for your home!
