Extra strength and wear resistance with laminate
Learn about Laminate Flooring
To put it simply, laminate flooring takes the looks of wood, stone, or tile and combines them with extra durability. What results is a stylish and beautiful floor that is able to stand up to heavy traffic and even most spills.
Laminate looks and feels solid, but it is actually made from multiple layers fused together. The top layer is called the wear layer, and it is more resistant to scratches and impacts than even hardwood. It needs, however, to be cleaned like hardwood. The next layer is the decorative layer, and it includes a high definition image of hardwood, stone, or tile to give laminate a natural look. The next two layers, the core layer and base layer, provide extra support against foot traffic and some moisture.
Because of its unique construction, laminate flooring is more durable than most natural flooring types, including hardwood. Laminate is also very friendly to the environment since it is not made from as many natural resources. Most importantly, laminate flooring is less expensive than its natural counterparts, so it can fit every budget!
