How long should a laminate floor last?

Dependent on the quality of the flooring an 8mm laminate floor will last over 10 years in a bedroom but maybe not as long in a hallway.it really does depend on ware and tare. Quick-step and pergo give a 25 year to a lifetime guaranteed on flooring even in high commercial areas.

How do I know if the moisture in my concrete is to high?
First of all, call us and we will test it for you. In a new build the concrete will take approximately one month for every inch of concrete poured unless you have underfloor heating then it will dry a lot quicker.

A handy way of testing concrete. If you cover a small piece of concrete with plastic or a ceramic tile and leave it a couple of days when you lift it if the concrete under neat is a different colour your floor is still damp.

How should I clean my flooring?
There are plenty of floor cleaning products out there. But brushing, hoovering and wiping your floor with a well rung out mop will keep your floor in tip-top condition.

Also, all furniture should have protective pads on so it can slide effortlessly across your floor.

Is there any guarantee?

Yes, all floors come with a guarantee

Ken fitted all the flooring when we moved to our new Letterkenny premises. His work was excellent and we found him very efficient and completely professional. I can thoroughly recommend Ken for wooden floor fitting in Donegal.

I’m very happy to say that Ken has installed several wooden and laminate floors in my house, and the end result was excellent in all cases. Ken is the most professional fitter I have met, a very clean worker, who takes immense pride in the quality of his work.

He is a true craftsman, and his years of experience shows in his work. Do not spend money on a laminate or wooden floor without getting Ken to fit it. You won’t regret it. !
