Laminate Floors in El Centro, CA  

Laminate floors are a favorite for hectic homes and businesses. With textures and colors inspired by the natural world and sturdy build, today’s laminate floors are a lot different than a decade ago. Right now, there are endless laminate flooring options to fit into almost every home or workspace.



At Gordon’s Carpet One Floor & Home of El Centro, CA, we can help you find your perfect laminate floor. Our flooring experts are well-versed in laminate flooring and can guide you through the installation process.


Laminate Floors Fit for Life in El Centro

With our hazy desert climate and low humidity, laminate flooring is the perfect fit for the California lifestyle.

Choosing high-quality laminate flooring is a decision you won’t ever regret. Budget-friendly, yet luxurious to look at, laminate floors are a beautiful sight that aren’t a desert mirage.


Since laminate floors perform at the top of their game in low humidity, they’re perfectly suited for life in the Imperial Valley. As diverse as the local crowds, laminate comes in thousands of styles and it’s easy-care plan is perfect for those who work long hours.


How Does Laminate Flooring Compare to Real Hardwood?

The look of hardwood flooring is always popular, but “real” isn’t necessarily better.


Natural hardwood flooring has its limits. Hardwood floors are pricey, need a lot of upkeep, and shouldn’t be used in areas where moisture is heavy- that means no hardwood in the bathroom, kitchen, or laundry room!



That doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style vision! A laminate floor is a perfect hardwood alternative. With looks and textures almost identical to hardwood flooring, laminate flooring has a digital imaging layer that’s made to fool the eye. Unlike hardwood, a laminate floor doesn’t ever need to be refinished. It’s easy to clean, moisture friendly, and scratch resistant.


Consider laminate flooring instead of hardwood if you have little kids, pets, or entertain frequently.



Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

All laminate floors are moisture resistant, but there are certain laminate products are fully waterproof.


Waterproof laminate flooring has a resin-soaked core and reinforced topcoat. With these added features, even major spills and stains won’t stand a chance and your subfloor will stay dry. Choose waterproof producs for a bathroom or finished basement



We highly recommend choosing waterproof laminate flooring for bathroom and kitchen projects, or if you have pets in the house.

Installing a laminate floor is relatively easy. The bulk of laminate flooring will lock into place to form what we call a “floating floor.” That means that nails and glue aren’t necessary.


Select laminate flooring products don’t need added time to “settle” after installation, allowing you to get on with your daily life and get back to normal much faster.



Can I Install My Own Laminate Flooring? 

It's tempting to attempt your own laminate flooring installation, but often it’s better that you leave it up to the seasoned professionals.


Why is that you ask? Well, for starters: if your laminate flooring is incorrectly installed, it won’t perform its best. Additionally, your product warranty might not cover future flaws or damages.



Even “easy” installation can be a time-consuming process, one that involves careful cleaning, a clean and dry subfloor that’s nice and leveled, and precise measurements. All of this can easily overwhelm a busy homeowner, making it very worthwhile to consider professional flooring installation for your home or business.


Our laminate flooring experts can help you determine which type of flooring installation is best for you.
