Kansas City HardwoodHardwood is a popular flooring choice in the greater Overland Park, Shawnee, Lenexa, Prairie Village area. They provide a beautiful, classic, and durable look that many homeowners love. Laminate hardwood flooring blends the beauty of hardwood with the lasting value and easy maintenance of laminate. It can even be installed in any room of the home, including the kitchen and bathroom. The experts at Floor Coverings International Kansas City West want to help you realize the numerous benefits of laminate hardwood flooring!

Laminate hardwood is made from particle board topped with an imitation of wood grain to make it look like solid hardwood. A difference between solid hardwood and laminate is the installation process. Laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation and can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.

  • Everyday maintenance is simple. Just sweep to remove debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. No refinishing or resurfacing is necessary.
  • Laminate hardwood is available in many different looks, just like solid hardwood.
