What Is Laminate?
Laminate flooring is constructed out of several layers. First is a backing material, which helps act as a moisture barrier to prevent warping. Next is the inner core, which is made from a moisture resistant, high density, fiberboard to provide stability. The design layer is where the magic happens as manufacturers replicate the colors and grain of wood using a detailed photographic image. A durable wear layer protects the board against spills, scratches, and fading.
Why Choose Laminate?
There are a number of reasons why you might choose laminate flooring to achieve the hardwood look:
- Quality laminate flooring is designed to be more resistant against moisture, making it a good choice for areas like kitchens or bathrooms where humidity could potentially damage solid hardwood.
- Laminate flooring snaps together for easy installation. You can even install it directly over old floors without needing to strip things down to the sub-flooring!
- Laminate hardwood flooring is easy to maintain through sweeping and occasionally mopping with a gentle cleaner.
