The Laminate Advantage
Laminate is a high-performing material made to look like your favorite floor coverings, such as ceramic, stone, or hardwood. With advances in manufacturing, laminate is able to mimic wood and tile down to the smallest details. This lets you have luxury flooring at cost-effective pricing. When you choose a laminate flooring, you are saving yourself money and still achieving an upscale appearance.
Laminate has a solid appearance and contains four distinct layers. It is manufactured with a base that protects against moisture and a core that is strong enough to withstand even the heaviest of foot traffic. This makes it ideal for active households with children and pets. Laminate’s wear layer is typically compounded with melanin resin and aluminum oxide, which are elements that protect your floor from staining and markings. The top layer is decorative, allowing for a variety of different patterns that can realistically mimic your favorite flooring types.
Understanding Laminate Flooring
Using either the direct or high-pressure method, laminate flooring is manufactured to produce a beautiful and resilient flooring for your home. Under the direct-pressure method, all four layers are fused at once. This method produces the most affordable and common types of laminate flooring. With the high-pressure method, individual layers are fused for increased density. This method is popular for commercial spaces where intensive use occurs.
The differences between laminate and other natural flooring alternatives such as vinyl rests in the four layers inside the product. Starting with the core and base layers, these provide density for withstanding foot traffic and placement over your subfloor. Next, the decorative layer allows any image to be applied and replicated with advanced photographic technology. Lastly, the wear layer seals the image and overall flooring from stains and damage.
Types of Laminate Flooring
Laminate Wood Flooring
Change your floors into the hardwood style you have always wanted. Our laminate wood flooring offers all the beauty and elegance of hardwood floors, but with the durable, low-maintenance appeal of laminate. Laminate wood flooring can look just like your favorite hardwood species and this is because what you see when you look at laminate flooring is a high-quality image of a hardwood plank. Laminate has layered construction with a clear coating on top that allows you to see the image of wood beneath. Behind this is a sturdy layer that stabilizes this flooring and a backing layer that resists moisture.
Laminate Tile Flooring
Stone and tile add richness to any living space. Laminate tile flooring replicates the highly desirable appearance of real stone flooring at a lesser cost. Our stunning collections of laminate resemble quarried stone, porcelain, ceramic, glass, and more. Select the floors that resemble your favorite stone or tile, and you’ll receive a high-end look without enduring a high-end price.
Maintaining Your Laminate Floors
Experience the difference laminate floors can make in your home. In addition to its wide range of colors and finishes, laminate is a low-maintenance flooring material that offers easy upkeep. While other flooring materials require periodic refinishing and touch-ups, this product requires very little of your time, care, and energy. Simply keeping it clear of debris with occasional sweeping and mopping is all you need to extend the look and lifetime of these floors. We recommend using a laminate-cleaning product for best results.
