First Class Wood Flooring is an amazing company. They are friendly, patient, knowledgeable, hard working and willing to go above and beyond. First Class was the second choice Home Advisor sent me, which was the first mistake. They should have been first. I contacted the company and more often than not, spoke with Rebecca, who helped me out tremendously. She taught me the differences between the many different types of flooring, some of which I didn’t even know existed. Due to some errors at my bank, my closung kept getting pushed back, so I was unable to schedule a date to have the work done. However, once the closing occurred, Chris was not only able to tell me what type of flooring was in my best interest, but able to get me an estimate quickly, because I was able to choose what I wanted immediately. Chris and his 2 workers spent their first day working very hard. After tearing up the old carpeting and padding in the living room and two bedroom, the ceramic tiled entranceway and molding had to be removed. Then they laid out the vinyl planked flooring that looks like hardwood. They completed all of that in one day! They returned the following day to put up new molding around the entire home. Chris and his workers were friendly, professional and hard working. I plan on having them return to do my kitchen floors, so Rebecca has already helped me pick out the flooring I’m going to use and Chris already took measurement and gave me an estimate. Unfortunately, Chris said that the floor had to be done last. I hope I can speak with them again soon. This company does amazing and “First Class” work.
What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is composed of layers. There is a backing layer, an inner core layer, a design layer, and a wear layer. Laminate does a good job of imitating natural elements such as wood or tile because of the design layer. The design layer contains a photographic image of the material you want to mimic. The wear layer includes sealants applied over the photographic layer. This provides protection against scratches, stains, fading, and the effects of daily use. The inner core contains a plastic resin that provides strength, stability and durability. The backing layer is moisture resistant and helps to prevent warping. The layered construction is what makes laminate floors remarkably durable. This ‘next generation’ of products offer true water resistance for large and small residential and commercial areas.
