Looking for a real wood aesthetic without many of the associated drawbacks? Laminate flooring is the ideal solution. It looks like the authentic product, but uses modern manufacturing techniques to create a durable and scratch resistant product that’s both a less expensive investment, and less likely to warp. This makes it ideal for sitting over underfloor heating, and for use in a more diverse range of environments than solid wood flooring is typically used in.
QC Flooring has an expansive range of laminate flooring products in many different colours and styles, which retain the natural characteristics of wood. We’re a proud stockist of Woodpecker, a renowned manufacturer that makes some of the best laminate flooring products you’ll find featured in countless properties throughout our principal service areas of Milton Keynes, Buckingham and Olney, and for that matter the wider UK.

We also handle the installation in-house, and know how to carefully and respectfully install flooring to minimise disruption to your day-to-day routine. Boards are usually installed via a click and lock method, which makes it a much quicker process than having to use adhesives.
Laminate flooring is built with an HDF core, on top of which is fixed a photorealistic wood pattern print. This is covered with transparent melamine, for an extra level of protection. This production process makes it incredibly durable, and it’s low maintenance should there be a spillage or other accident. The benefits that proponents swear by include:
The drawbacks? Well, even the best laminates won’t be indiscernible in their similarity to solid wood; some Milton Keynes, Buckingham and Olney residents will find that there’s no substitute for solid wood, due to how set on it they are. Also, poor installation can lead to long-term issues and a sloppy aesthetic that undermines the product itself. That’s why it’s essential to have a team like QC Flooring install it; avoid it as a DIY job!
