Introduction of Painted V Groove Laminate Flooring

Painted V groove laminate flooring is a kind of wood laminate flooring processed through an extra special technology called “bevel painted”. Generally speaking, the normal production of common laminate flooring includes materials collection-hot pressing-a short time acclimation-cutting-a long time acclimation-grooving-packing. To painted V groove laminate flooring, the extra beveling step will be performed together with grooving according to a fixed angle and after that the beveled section will be painted with special painting whose color is the same as decor papers. By this procedure, the HDF below doesn’t show through. The perfect mimic of hard wood floor really makes painted V groove laminate flooring a very eye catching product, and will totally deceive people into thinking your V groove laminate floor is in fact a real wood floor. But it does cost much less compared with solid wood flooring.

Here is a photo of painted V groove oak laminate flooring with small embossed surface.

Just keep your eyes on the flooring edges, you may notice the slight beveled sections. They are not quite obvious just by observing from the front side because the decor-color-like painting has already covered the below HDF board perfectly. An installed v groove laminate flooring picture will show you more about how the beveled part works on the vivid mimic of hard wood flooring.

Just as normal square edged laminate flooring, painted V groove laminate could be produced with any size, any standard thickness as 8mm, 12mm. Since an extra process is performed during the production, painted V groove laminate flooring certainly costs more than the common ones. Basically, for the same specifications, the V groove stuff is 0.2USD/sqm higher than the common one. Even though, it’s still worth, because you can’t find cheaper “hardwood floors” anywhere else.

10 Reasons to Get Laminate Flooring

laminate flooring

Laminate flooring has quickly become one of the most popular flooring types in new houses and for remodeling projects. Not only does it have a strong surface and capacity for rough wear without the damage inherent in wooden floors, it looks great, too. Most laminate flooring comes with a 25 year warranty against wearing, fading and staining.

Here are ten reasons to install laminate floor in your home:

  • Durability: Laminate flooring is a durable surface and has become the common choice for homes with children or pets. This flooring features a tough surface layer to provide scratch and dent resistance. Most laminate flooring comes with a 25 year warranty against wear and  damage.
  • Fade Resistance: Sun exposure will not cause laminate flooring to fade. Since you don’t have to use harsh cleaning products on the laminate, the finish will last longer and stay cleaner.
  •  Stain Resistance: Laminate flooring comes with a stain-resistant coating making cleaning up spills quick and easy.
  • Installation.Installing laminate flooring requires no special tools or training. They use a simple tongue and groove locking system on top of existing floors or sub-floors. Since little cutting is required, there is minimum of dust and it is quick to install.
  • Maintenance: Laminate flooring is easy to clean and maintain. Already finished, a damp mopping or vacuum job will keep the floor clean. It doesn’t need sanding or any of the traditional maintenance methods of hard wood flooring. Damage to the  flooring can be touched up or, if extensive, the flooring plank or section can be replaced.
  • Economy: In addition to being less expensive than hardwood flooring, laminate flooring is also a long term value with a warranted life span encompassing at least 25 years. The cost of installation is lowered as this can easily be approached as a do it your self project.
  • Health concerns: Laminate flooring provides a healthy alternative to hardwood or carpeted floor by making cleaning ups easier and more thorough. Laminate flooring is a good choice for people who suffer allergies.
  • Finish: The finish on laminate flooring is a photographic imitation of natural materials. The patterns are printed on the laminate and include wood patterns, such as knotty   pine, as well as ceramic and stone.

Since the finish on laminate flooring is a photographic finish, there is a huge range of options for finishes. Instead of having to pay more for more exotic wood finishes or patterns, the cost remains stable no matter what finish you are wanting for your floor.

When it comes to finishing the floors of your home, whether it is new or you are just remodeling, finding laminate flooring manufacturer that fit your needs without breaking your bank is critical a step.

 

What Kind of Laminate Flooring Does Australia Prefer?

It’s really remarkable how laminate flooring as a new material affects the home flooring projects in the past 20 years. Laminate flooring grew into the new beloved not only because of its advantages of high resistance, easy maintenance and water resistance but also for the vivid imitation of wood like colors and surface designs which even make the real wood floors eclipsed. Although there are diverse laminates circulating in the flooring market currently and each type of them attracts lots of consumers, when it comes to a specific type, it seems that each country has its NO. 1 nationally favored products. So what’s it in Australia?

To find this out, we specially had an interview with Sam Xue, Sunspeed Flooring sales manager who has been in charge of Australia market for 6 years.

Bigger Size

“Australia’s requests are very special compared with Asia countries.” Said Xue “They prefer longer and wider boards decorated by spotted gum and blackbutt wood colors. As to surface, high gloss laminate flooring will be the eternal choice at least to most Australians.”

Later we checked some Australian contracts from Xue noticing that the product length mainly floats between 1800 and 2400mm, width between 195 and 295mm. This makes the product really stand out from the crowd when you sit it next to a more common size of laminate flooring such as 1218x197mm.

Unilin Fans

“Most Australian customers prefer Unilin click products considering the Unilin lock will make installation stonger.” Xue explained “But actually, no matter what the click system is, easy and tight installation will not be a problem to laminate flooring. And the patent charge of Unilin Company makes Unilin laminate flooring more expensive than common boards.”

High Gloss Surface

Just as Xue said, Australians prefer this smooth surface of high gloss. I think that’s mainly because this mirror surface resembles solid wood flooring extremely.

Local Wood Colors

Just like Thai people prefer teak wood colors, Australians devote their sole love to their local wood species. When you ask them what kind of wood colors they want their floors to be decorated with, the answers will mostly limited to blackbutt, spotted gum and Jarrah. Those dark laminate flooring seems quite popular in Australia land.

Hope the above information could be helpful to flooring companies who plan to stride into Australia market. And if you are Australia reader looking for laminate flooring suppliers, please don’t hesitate to contact Sunspeed Flooring by enquiry@sunspeedflooring.com for product details.
