Laminate Flooring in Grass Valley, CA


Laminate flooring is one of the most affordable ways to enjoy some of the trendiest home styles. Life in the Sierra Nevada foothills means most of us are fond of nature-inspired beauty. However, for many of us, the daily grind of hectic workdays, active families, and keeping within our bottom line calls for a floor that's not only pretty, but also practical. It's truly the best of both worlds with laminate flooring perfectly replicating all our favorite hardwood looks. 

Do you prefer to stay close to home when it's time for new flooring? At Youngs Carpet One Floor & Home in Grass Valley, CA, we're your local flooring store and can help you find YOUR perfect balance at home! Our laminate flooring collection reflects all the regional favorites, down to every grain, finish, and shade. 


Are you considering a laminate floor for your home or your place of business? Here's everything you ought to know about modern laminate flooring. 


Best Types of Laminate For California Living 

Do you long for a floor that looks exactly like your favorite hardwood species, but never needs to be polished or refinished- one that won't drain your wallet, either? It's no California dream: it's just modern laminate flooring! 


From the banks of the Yuba River to lingering traces of the California Gold Rush, nature's legacies are deeply woven into our region and our homes reflect our heritage. Laminate flooring options represent the full scope of our natural landscape, zeroing in on our wooded miles. 


Each laminate flooring plank is topped with a photographic image layer sourced from actual hardwood cuts, allowing endless product variety. There are hundreds of textures and finishes, including smooth, hand-scraped, embossed, or distressed planks. All are made of high or medium-density fiberboard. 



Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

Select laminate flooring types are fully waterproof, although not all of them are. However, every laminate product is designed to resist a fair level of everyday household moisture. We recommend choosing a 100% waterproof laminate floor for commercial spaces, in your bathroom, in the kitchen, or in all spaces where your pets and kids like to spend most of their time.


Another thing to bear in mind is your floor's thickness level. Thicker types of laminate flooring tend to be more durable and have better sound insulation. Look for laminate with a thickness of at least 8mm for residential use, though 10mm or 12mm options provide even more durability.


Lastly, be aware of your chosen floor's AC Rating. The AC rating is a tool measuring your floor's scratch resistance and durability. In most home environments, a rating of AC3 or AC4 will fare just fine! For more hectic rooms, such as family rooms, or commercial spaces, consider something rated AC5. 



Is Laminate Flooring Easy To Install

Compared to traditional tile or hardwood flooring, laminate's installation process is relatively easy. 


It can be installed using several different methods, including glueless click-lock systems, glue-down installations, and pre-glued options. Ask our experts for which method is most recommended, based on your product and its thickness level. 


Many homeowners are completely at ease installing their own laminate flooring. We recommend you look before you leap, however.  After all, "easy" is a relative term! If you're not comfortable working with everyday household tools and have little time to spare, we recommend a professional flooring installation for your new laminate floor.
