Laminates: Just Hardwood Floors laminates boast up to a 20-year general wear and tear product warranty. Inspired by nature and created to compliment the interior design of tomorrow, laminate is a versatile, durable and cost effective flooring. Laminate flooring is ideal for the typical home, standing up to the rigours of a typical Kiwi summer with a busy indoor-outdoor enter- taining flow that is the norm in most homes. Laminate floors are ideal for homeowners who love the warm look of wood but can't quite make the budget stretch to a solid timber floor, or who simply prefer the benefits that a laminated product provides. A facsimile of real tim- ber, laminate flooring is warm and practical and has the characteristics of natural wood without the hassles of marks and scratches. Laminates are also a healthier and cleaner option with less dirt, dust and allergens than carpet. The laminates sold and supported by Just Hardwood Floors are extremely tough, fade, scratch and stain resist- ant and also boast up to a 20 year general wear and tear product war- ranty. Laminates are a softer floor covering to walk on and far more forgiving than tiles. Available in a great range of colours and looks, laminates are quick and clean to install, excellent value for money and very easy care. While laminates have developed a strong mar- ket in New Zealand, some people still prefer solid timber or an engineered veneer. Just Hardwood Floors also specialises in the installation and finishing of solid timber flooring, engineered (otherwise known as pre- finished or veneer floor- ing) as well as the new and developing market of laminate flooring. The team at Just Hardwood Floors can advise on the best options for individual lifestyle and budget. The company's expertise, experience and high standards have won many awards, including Timber Floor of the Year from the New Zealand Flooring Association. Open Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm.
