Laminate flooring

Laminate flooring offers a wide selection of designs that offer the look and feel of beautiful hardwood, ceramic tile, and slate. It is actually a composite that's designed to endure more-than-average wear and tear.

  • Laminate flooring is incredibly durable and stain resistant. Such problem spills as nail polish, grease, and mustard simply wipe off.
  • Tongue-and-groove locking technology eliminates unsightly gaps at the seams.
  • Ultra durable flooring planks can be taken apart and reassembled if necessary.
  • No can walk on your floor immediately after installation is complete.

Laminate is currently one of the top flooring materials. Long used in Europe, laminates have made their way into the mainstream interior design of the states. Laminates offer exceptional durability and stain resistance, and are easy to maintain. Now more than ever laminate has the look and feel of wood. In fact, laminates are now available in an impressive array of traditional, rustic and exotic wood grain designs. Laminate boasts the look of upscale flooring without the upscale cost, perfect for the budget-conscious consumer who stills wants a stylish look.

Laminate construction

Laminate is hard surface flooring sold in blocks, planks and squares that provide the look of wood, stone and tile usually at a lower cost and with easier maintenance.

A direct-pressure manufacturing process fuses four layers into one extremely hard surface. The four layers are:

  • Back layer - The back is reinforced with melamine for structural stability and moisture resistance.
  • Fiberboard core - Ultra dense core board provides impact resistance and stability. It also features an edge sealing treatment that provides even further structural stability.
  • Decorative layer - Providing the floor's beauty, the decorative layer is actually a highly detailed photograph that gives the laminate the appearance of wood or tile.
  • Wear layer - The melamine wear layer is a tough, clear finish reinforced with aluminum oxide, one of the hardest mineral compounds known to man, to resist staining, fading, surface moisture, and wear.

The resulting floor is a technological breakthrough. There's no staining, no fading, and no wear through.
