Carpet Court Kogarah - Quickstep Burned Planks
I had this installed a few weeks ago, and love it.
It's not the cheapest place, I had laminate put in prior which I was having replaced by Carpet Court and the previous laminate I had done cheap.
At the time I thought that "laminate is laminate", and just pointed in a shop and had it done, and all was fine then after about 12 months things started to "creak", as I walked on them. Like a cracking sounds, eventually it got pretty bad after 5 years and this time I did my research.
The most important part is getting a good installer. You cann...ot just roll out the foam and chuck it on top and click it together. Something called "floor prep", is required. Even concrete foundations have slopes and dips in them and they need to be evened out, sanded off and filled with a quick dry concrete. For my apartment this set me back over a grand alone. If you don't do it, then because the boards are not flexible enough you get the creaking and eventually they just wear out. Going cheap proves to be false economy as they wear out in a few years instead of a 25 year warranty like I now have.
