Laminate Flooring FAQs

Laminate flooring is a flooring material that looks and feels like wood, and is made from wood, but offers more affordability and flexibility with installation than wood floors. It’s made by sandwiching a photorealistic wood image in between a clear, protective top layer and a high-density fiberboard core. This results in a durable wood-look flooring that can be made water resistant or waterproof and will stand up to heavy foot traffic.

Yes, laminate flooring can be installed anywhere in your home. Some products, like our water-resistant laminate floors, are specifically designed for moisture-prone areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. During your free in-home estimate, a flooring professional will show you all the options available and help you make the best choice for your lifestyle, needs, and budget.

Many of our laminate products can be installed on stairs.

Depending on the project, your existing flooring may have to be removed, or we may be able to accommodate a new installation over your old floor. Your flooring professional will be able to provide more information on your options during your free in-home consultation.

A laminate floor is installed using a state-of-the-art locking system, creating a resilient foundation that will offer a long life of solid performance.

Empire is pleased to sell laminate and work with independent flooring installation professionals in more than 70 service areas across the country. Visit the Empire Today locations page to find services near you.

For in-stock products, your laminate floor can be installed when you want—even as soon as the Next Day. Because we have large warehouses with products ready to be installed, we can help make updating your home easy and convenient.

Modern scratch-resistant laminate flooring is extremely durable. But no floors are indestructible. If severe damage occurs, it may be possible to replace a single plank without replacing your entire floor. With an Empire Today Service Plan, repairs or replacements not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty may be performed for no additional charge.

Approved laminate floor filler may correct minor damage, such as scratch marks and minor repairs. More serious damages may require replacing a plank.

Empire Makes Choosing New Laminate Flooring Easy

Empire offers a wide range of laminate wood flooring options from the industry’s most trusted brands. From the look of classic oak plank floors to a rustic gray laminate flooring that’s perfect for a farmhouse style kitchen, laminate floors are available in nearly every aesthetic imaginable.

The laminate wood planks are offered in multiple widths to more accurately mimic various wood floor installation styles. This also increases floor installation options, as different widths of planks can each be better suited to a particular room size or layout. With such a wealth of options, it can be a challenge to choose the best flooring for your needs. But Empire Today flooring professionals are here to guide you through the shopping process, helping you find a floor that matches both your style and your budget.

Get High Quality Floors That Look Great with Wood Laminate Flooring

One of the many upsides to laminate is its affordability. You’ll often be able to get gorgeous floors installed at a lower price than when using solid hardwood or tile of a similar look. But don’t let that reasonable pricing give you pause. We’re often asked how long laminate flooring lasts, and we’re always happy to explain that today’s materials are crafted with long life in mind. Many of the products sold by Empire are covered by lifetime warranties against fading, staining, and overall wear.

So, although most laminate floors will be less expensive than hardwood or tile options, you don’t have to worry that you’re getting an inferior product with those cost savings. Plus, their robust construction typically offers benefits over other flooring types. Searching for flooring that’s good for pets? Unlike many hardwoods, wood-look laminate floors are less likely to get damaged by dog nails or accidents, and can easily be wiped with your favorite microfiber wet/dry floor cleaning device. Most laminate flooring can even be mopped.
