What are laminate floors and how are they made?
Laminate floors are made by bonding several layers of material under high pressure. Most laminate floors feature a moisture-resistant layer and a photographic image of authentic-looking wood, tile, or stone. Laminate products are also finished with an extremely hard and clear coating for protection.
If you’re looking for a durable, versatile, and attractive option that won’t break the bank, laminate may be for you. As a bonus, laminate is often more environmentally friendly.
Where can I install laminate wood flooring?
Laminate can be installed in virtually any room, above or below ground, and on any surface. Laminate can warp so it’s best to be careful of areas with lots of moisture.
What are the advantages of laminate flooring over those of solid hardwood flooring?
Laminate is typically more affordable. It’s easy to install, and it’s cheaper as well. It resists scratches and fading, and it’s excellent for dealing with heavy traffic.
