If you love the look of real hardwood, but are concerned with
maintaining its appearance, there is an alternative. Laminate
floors are beautiful, extremely durable, and easy to clean.
It’s well suited for high-traffic areas, busy family kitchens,
and homes with children and pets. Like hardwood, laminate is
available in various widths and lengths and is less expensive
than real wood.
Wood-look laminate flooring is made to look like wood, but the
decorative layer is actually a photograph. Most laminates have
four-ply construction: a backing or balancing layer, a
moisture-resistant wood-based core of high- or medium-density
fiberboard, a decorative layer, and a wear-resistant layer of
Laminate is fast becoming a favorite alternative in many
interior decorating plans. Laminate flooring can also show the
texture of ceramic tile and stone.
Laminate flooring manufacturers use sophisticated,
computerized technology to create realistic designs. Laminate
floors are well protected by a tough outer coating that
resists most stains, spills, burns and are extremely
scratch-resistant. These floors come in both planks and tiles
and can be floated over most substrates which include concrete
slabs and existing floor coverings.
Laminate is easy and quick to install because of its glueless
installation. Laminate comes with a type of tongue and grooved
locking system which “clicks” into position. All laminate
floors require an underlayment that is installed directly
underneath the laminate planks or tiles. This helps the floor
float freely over the subfloor, adds a vapor barrier and aids
in noise reduction.
