Laikeman Sports offers a variety of basketball flooring to fit the needs of any facility and level of competition

Besides performance attributes, choices regarding basketball floors often hinge on the responses to a range of pivotal questions.
1. Multi-Purpose Usage of the Court:
When considering basketball floors, it's essential to determine if the court will be used exclusively for basketball or for other activities as well. Some floors need to cater to a variety of sports and non-sporting events. In such cases, opting for a versatile and resilient sports surface below could be the optimal choice. These surfaces require less effort in transitioning between activities compared to those needing protective coverings.
2. Floor Maintenance and Protection Resources:
It's crucial to factor in lifetime maintenance costs alongside the initial flooring expenses. Maple hardwood courts, while durable, may require occasional refinishing. Investing in protective coverings is also advised. On the other hand, resilient surfaces like vinyl, linoleum, or rubber generally do not require refinishing, but their ease of cleaning depends on surface texture.
3. Consistency in Competition:
Consider whether maintaining competitive consistency is essential. While most high-level competitions employ maple hardwood courts, some teams prefer playing on the same type of court both at home and away. However, it's important to note that even courts of the same material from the same manufacturer can have unique performance characteristics due to their individual construction.
4. Emphasis on Traditional Hardwood Floors:
For those valuing tradition, hardwood courts stand as the classic choice for basketball. Laikeman Sports, a maple flooring option, aligns with this sentiment. Alternatively, if flexibility in surface selection is preferred, resilient options below offer high-quality basketball floors with exceptional benefits.
