Today’s laminate flooring simulates the authentic look of hardwood or tile, the possibilities for new styles and colors are limitless. Whether you prefer the natural look of wood, ceramic tile or marble you will be impressed with the wide variety available in laminate flooring. Today’s laminate flooring has extremely realistic looks and can now replicate distressed hardwood styles and hand-scraped finishes. In keeping with the hardwood trends laminate flooring is now available in planks with longer lengths and wider widths.
All laminates are constructed of four layers: wear, design, core and back.
- Protected by a tough external layer and resin coating, a laminate floor is much stronger, and more scratch-resistant, impact-resistant and longer lasting than any hardwood, vinyl, or carpet. It’s virtually resistant to dogs, cats, kids and even high heels.
- The design layer gets its beauty from a high resolution photographic image of the floor’s surface appearance and provides you with a variety of looks from the burnished swirls of natural hardwood to the earthen textures of ceramic or stone tiles. This makes it particularly adaptable to new designs.
- The core layer is a construction of durable high-density board which protects against indentations and moisture.
- The back layer is a stability layer, which protects the planks against moisture and helps balance the floor.
Thanks to layered construction, laminate flooring absorbs the heavy traffic and day-to-day use of an active family, while it continues to look as good as the day it was installed.
