Laminate

It Simply Looks Like The Real Thing

Benefits

Appealing hardwood visuals and marvelous slate and stone looks are the hallmark of today’s laminate. It simply looks like the real thing. And laminate flooring is great for busy families:  it installs easily, wears incredibly well, and comes in breathtaking colors and styles. High-end and fashionable, laminate’s a hot choice.

Laminate is an extremely hard surface composed of four layers that are fused together and then coated with melamine for structural stability and moisture resistance. Melamine is a strong, transparent finish strengthened with aluminum oxide, which is one of the hardest mineral compounds. This aids in maximum prevention of wear and tear.

Offerings

Today’s laminate looks so realistic, you’ll find yourself asking, “Is it laminate … or is it hardwood?” It’s laminate, all right—the stylish result of continuing breakthroughs in modern technology and manufacturing methods. There are styles that convey the authentic look of wood or the classic appeal of ceramic tile.

Various shades and finishes allow you to choose the wood look down to the species, and now laminates are mimicking hardwood even more. Some laminates offer beveled, distressed, and highly textured options—giving your laminate floor not only the look of hardwood, but the feel of it, too.

Laminates are inherently “green,” because they use fewer resources and far less wood in their manufacture. And because they’re durable — some styles even offer 25-year warranties — you don’t have to replace laminate floors as often.

Consider laminate for a distinctive look that’s beautifully affordable … and affordably beautiful.

Installation

We help you every step of the way!

After you’ve selected your new floor:  professional on-site measurement, removal of old flooring, and skilled installation that includes moving  your furniture and replacing trim. We do it all expertly, so your floor will look amazing and give lasting satisfaction.

It’s also a good idea to check with us directly to find out if there are other actions we recommend before installation. Just call a member of our friendly sales staff.
To ensure a hassle-free installation for Laminate, here’s a checklist of things to do before the installer arrives.

In general, your laminate should run parallel to windows or, in narrow rooms, to the longest wall.

Make sure you know who’s removing your existing flooring. If you wish, the installer will do it. If not, you should make arrangements to have it removed. To minimize dust, vacuum your old carpet before it’s removed and, after it’s up, vacuum the floor thoroughly.

Who’s moving the furniture? Decide in advance if you want to take on the responsibility or if you want the installer to handle it. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room, and don’t leave anything — such as drapery or plants — hanging over the installation area.

If your tile has any linearity to the pattern, decide whether you want it to run in one direction or to be quarter-turned, so that an overall “checkerboard” type pattern is achieved.

Measure door clearances before you have your carpet is installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw the correct amount off the bottom of each door so it does not drag.

Paint first. If you’re planning to paint, wallpaper, or do any other remodeling in the room, it’s best to do it before your carpet is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation nicks.

If you need some new carpet or hardwood floors refinished, you need to stop by Frazee Carpet & Flooring. Damon,... Paulette, and Jason were awesome to work with. While preparing to sell our house we had the existing hardwood floors refinished and all the carpets replaced. The hardwoods looked better than new and the carpet exceeded our expectations.read more

Recently decided to replace the carpet in one bedroom at my house. Unsure where to start, I went to Lowe's. Needless to... say, it was not a success at all. They wanted almost 1.5K for an 11x12 room with a 3x6 closet. Told me it was 228sqft!!! I guess we didn't learn math the same way. Then I remembered driving by Frazee Carpet & Flooring once in a while and decided to go check it out. What a delightful experience! First, they have lots of choice on the floor, and the sales rep (Jason I believe) was incredibly attentive to my questions. He understood what I was looking for without trying to steer me to spend more than I wanted to. Next was the scheduling, I wasn't very flexible at the time and they accommodated my schedule without any issue. the crew showed up 15min early (how awesome is that?!) and performed an outstanding job! I couldn't move the loft bed out of the room and worked around it with great professionalism. When they left, I felt like I was in a new house! Clean, polite, efficient and respectful of everything throughout the process. Let's not forget that they were also very competitive by charging me just 1K for a high end product! Gice yourself a favor, and give your business to these guys if you want a hassle free carpet project done. thank you very much Frazee Carpet! Frenchie. I would recommend them to anyone in need of quality work for sure!read more

We had all three floors of our house completely redone by Frazee, and couldn't have been happier with our experience,... or the results. Jason was great to work with, helping us select carpeting and LVP flooring, and coordinating the work. The installation crews were neat and efficient, and did a great job. We would highly recommend them.read more
