Laminate Flooring Installation in Wisconsin

Why choose Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring is a great option for anyone looking for an affordable and beautiful solution to replace the existing floors in their home. The variety of laminate floors available varies from traditional hardwoods to stone-look laminate which allows homeowners to choose the laminate that best fits their style and needs. Laminate floors are durable, scratch resistant, and easy to clean, making them the perfect choice for busy households. Not only do laminate floors look great but they are simple to install, often taking just a few hours by a professional or even DIY experienced homeowner. With laminate floors, you can upgrade the look of your home without breaking the bank.

Benefits of Laminate Floors

Laminate floors offer a great number of benefits, providing an ideal flooring solution for homeowners and business owners alike. In comparison to other alternatives, laminate floors are easy to clean, extremely durable, and economical. They are composed of several layers that are laminated together which is the reason why laminated floors can last, even with heavy traffic. Additionally, these laminated materials create a finished product that is easier to maintain, compared to hardwood or carpeted floors. Laminate flooring also requires much less upkeep than other surfaces such as natural stone tiles or bamboo flooring. These advantages do come at a slightly higher cost than traditional vinyl sheet style but laminate floors typically provide better bang for your buck. If you’re looking for a practical choice that also looks beautiful in any setting then laminate floors may be what you’re looking for!

Laminate Flooring Cost

Laminate flooring is an attractive and budget-friendly choice for your home. Its low cost makes laminate floors a great option for both DIYers and professional installers. For example, laminate flooring installed is typically priced at between $7-$10 per square foot depending on the quality of the laminate. Other factors that affect laminate flooring cost include the thickness of laminate planks, texture, installation costs and other materials required for the project. Overall, laminate floors are an excellent choice to refresh any space in your home without blowing your budget.

Laminate Flooring Maintenance

Proper maintenance of laminate flooring is an important part of keeping it looking new for years to come. Start by regularly vacuuming and sweeping the floor with a dry mop. This will remove any dirt or dust particles that can scratch the surface. If a spill occurs, blot up the liquid but don’t rub or scrub it. Clean the area with a damp cloth and avoid using too much water as this could damage the laminate material. It is best to avoid using any harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners when trying to maintain your laminate floors. When moving furniture, use felt pads or coasters beneath each item to reduce scratches and gouges in the flooring. Lastly, when it comes time to clean heavily soiled areas, apply a gentle cleaner, hand scrub, and then wipe clean with a soft cloth and water. With proper maintenance, you can keep your laminate flooring looking great for years to come!

Frequently Asked Questions​

Have a concrete coating-related question? We have the answer. Check out these FAQs and give us a call today for more information!

At Twisted Floors, we feel that HONESTY is the BEST policy. We use BOTH Polyurea and Epoxy Coatings. A polyurea /polyaspartic flooring coating system does have its benefits but some factors need to be considered when choosing which coating is best for your concrete. Many companies will tell you they primarily use polyurea over epoxy because it’s the best.

We believe that one size/one coating does not fit all concrete. One factor to consider and understand when choosing your coating is that not all concrete cures the same. It differs nationwide and leads to variations in concrete porosity and moisture transmission.

Polyurea coatings are not the best systems to install over highly porous concrete with high moisture transmission. Why? Because polyurea coatings are not moisture mitigating! Moisture transmitting through the concrete gets trapped under the coating and causes it to delaminate and peel.

At Twisted Floors, we select the proper coating type for your floor by testing the moisture and porosity of all concrete before coating to ensure that the right coating system is installed. We test the moisture content in your concrete on the day of the estimate and we also check it BEFORE we install the coating itself. We also perform a MOHS Hardness test to see the hardness of the underlying concrete.

If the company you meet with for estimates suggests a 1-day polyurea polyaspartic without first assessing your concrete and doing a moisture test, beware. NOT all concrete will work with a polyurea coating. Always make sure the company that you choose to install your concrete coating does the appropriate tests on your concrete and has knowledge of all types of coatings and why ONE system doesn’t work for all floors. Knowledge is KEY.

All floors and floor coatings can be slippery when wet, our concrete coatings are less slippery than regular concrete.

How do you know that your floors are less slippery than concrete?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has slip resistance requirements for floors. Concrete is around a 0.5 on the “slip meter”. OSHA requires 0.6 and our coatings are around 0.7.

We don’t promise a one-day floor system. Weather, concrete moisture levels, type of coating being used and many other factors inform us on how long a coating will take to install. We always tell our customers to plan for two days for a garage concrete coating.

We will discuss these details during your free estimate for your garage floor coating.

Summer: 24 hours after installation you can walk on the coating and you can drive on it in 48 Hours. Please don’t move anything heavy back into your garage for 72 hours.

Winter: 36 hours before you can walk on the floor and 72 hours before you can drive on the floor or move anything heavy back in.

Our professionally installed garage floor coatings are safe for use with properly designed and installed radiant heating systems. They are highly efficient in sending warmth up through your garage floor.

According to the DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy, “63% of all U.S. households have a garage or carport” available to them, and nothing beats working in the garage when the Wisconsin winter weather drives you inside. Of course, it is essential to have a warm garage to work or hang out in, and radiant floor heating is very popular in garages in our area.

No, as these are concrete coatings, you need to use these coatings only on concrete.

We install concrete coatings all year round, including during the winter months. Call us or contact us anytime for the coating you need!

Yes, you can use a Swiffer, a stiff broom, and simple green diluted 10:1. Just simply squeegee out the excess water when you’re done. Our concrete coatings last longer if taken care of properly. General maintenance like on any flooring helps keep your floor lasting longer and looking its best.
