Laminate flooring advice
I am not familiar with laminate floors having only wood floors in previous homes. I am trying to install a sturdy laminate floor in a small home.
Questions: 1) Does it matter if it is 12 mm, or 8 mm?
2)will the 12 mm be quieter?
3)I looked at Shaw Natural Selection II, Armstrong Illusions and a Lex Floor cottage collection laminate that is 12 mm.
They all have 20plus year warranties. I tried scratching all of them with metal and the Lex Floor shows slight scratches.
Does anyone have experience (positive or negative) with any of these materials? The flooring will be installed throughout house, over wood subfloor, 1920's home, in kitchen also.
Thank you for any advice as to what to look for when selecting laminate flooring. I would like to avoid any problems if at all possible. I read many problems with Armstrong grand illusions. Are these problems consistent for Armstrong in general?
