Authentic wood look
Variety of styles and looks
Whether or not laminate flooring is better than hardwood depends on more than just appearance. It depends on your budget, lifestyle, and location. Laminate floors are not real hardwood. Instead, they are floors made of composite wood with a photo-realistic image layer emulating oak, hickory, maple, walnut, and other popular species. Laminate flooring is so realistic looking that many people can’t tell the difference between today’s laminate planks and real wood. It still requires the same regular maintenance as hardwood but is much easier to clean, but you do not need to worry about humidity and moisture as much since the laminate is water resistant and has a protective layer.
Laminate flooring is made of multiple layers of composite wood that each have an important purpose to the overall performance and appearance of laminate flooring. These layers include:
Core and base layers: provide stability and moisture protection.
Decorative layer: a high-definition image of actual natural wood.
Finish layer: provides durability to protect against scratches and impact.
Laminate is easy to install and brings a high-end look to any room without hurting your wallet. Many laminate floors are installed using a simple click-lock method that allows the floor to float over your subfloor – no glues or adhesives required. We offer professional laminate flooring installation for both residential and commercial spaces.
We recommend laminate for both residential properties and light-use business spaces like small offices and boutiques. If you want to install laminate in a moisture-prone area like your kitchen, we encourage you to choose a waterproof laminate floor. So where can you install laminate flooring?
