Most laminate planks and tiles can be connected to form a floor that floats above the subfloor. The floating floor can be installed over some existing floors as well as wood and concrete. If a foam, felt, or cork underlayment is not attached to the bottom of the flooring, it can be installed separately. Underlayment helps the laminate lay smoother and connect better. It also hides minor subfloor imperfections and makes the floor softer to walk on. Some laminate tiles are designed to be glued down. While laminate flooring typically comes with a 5-10 year warranty, it may last longer.
The lifespan for laminate is dependent upon:
- The quality of the brand.
- How well it is maintained.
- Amount of foot traffic it gets.
- Whether it was properly installed.
