Laminate Flooring in Oakland, CA

Resilient, stylish, and sturdy laminate flooring is a beautiful way to add substance and function to your favorite interiors. Today’s laminate flooring options present an intelligent alternative to traditional hardwood, stone, or tile.


At Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Oakland, CA, we can help you navigate the changing world of synthetic flooring. Our professional team is always happy to make expert recommendations, finding you the finest laminate flooring options for your home or business.

Laminate vs Hardwood

Laminate flooring is designed to look and feel exactly like your favorite hardwood product. Affordable, dense, and difficult to damage, laminate flooring isn’t easily compromised. Each laminate plank is equipped with a sturdy plastic surface, dense wood core, and synthetic backing material. Unlike natural hardwood, laminate flooring won’t easily dent or scratch. It’s also less susceptible to fading.



Designed for easy-keeping, laminate’s needs are minimal. Sweep or vacuum your floor regularly. Large splashes and spills can be removed using a clean towel.

Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

Most laminate flooring choices aren’t waterproof but are moisture resistant. This means that you should pay close attention to minor splashes. If wiped away promptly, no damages will result.


Select options are fully waterproof, including Mirror Lake Performance Flooring. This innovative product is perfect for households with small children, pets, and active lifestyles. Hearty, resilient, and stunning, waterproof laminate flooring lets you have it all.


Laminate Flooring Installation

Although laminate flooring is sometimes considered a "do it yourself" product, a professional installation is recommended. The fact is that laminate installation isn’t quite as simple as just clicking planks together. We recommend moisture-resting your subfloor to ensure the optimal outcome. One should also pay careful attention to which type of underlayment will be used and whether moldings and baseboards are necessary.
