Laminate Wood Flooring
If you’re looking for a wood flooring, but your budget won’t stretch to it, consider a laminate floor that exactly looks like real wood. Laminate flooring actually has a layered construction. For durability and has stylish designs that capture the looks and textures of real wood.
Laminate wood construction is made of four layers of materials that create durable, beautiful floors.
1. Wear layer – A clear, top layer that provides resistance to stains and fading
2. Design layer – A high resolution, highly-detailed photographic image that realistically captures the look of genuine wood
3. Inner core – high-density fiberboard (HDF) made from wood fibers fused with resin.
4. Backing – A moisture barrier backing that protects the floor from warping
Laminate is fast and easy to install. It requires no adhesives or nails. Instead of it, laminate uses a lock-and-fold installation method. You can install laminate in any room, even moisture-prone basements and bathrooms.
