Why choose laminate flooring?
Laminate is a cost-effective and high-performance choice for hard flooring in your home or office.
What makes up laminate flooring
Laminate flooring boards feature four layers:
- A durable, transparent wear layer
- A textured design layer that resembles wood or other natural material
- An inner core made from medium-density fibreboard (MDF) or high-density fibreboard (HDF)
- A backing layer, also known as the balancing layer, stabilizes the floor and resists moisture.
Benefits of laminate flooring
Not only is laminate flooring durable, but its top layer also provides great scratch resistance. The top layer of laminate floorboards can withstand heavy traffic, active children, and pet claws. UV resistance also means that the colour of your floors will last longer.
So many styles to choose from
Laminate comes in a virtually endless variety of styles and designs, many of which can be easily mixed up with carpet, other hardwoods, stone or tiles.
Easy Care & Maintenance
Laminate flooring is simple to keep clean. Spills and markings can be easily wiped away using a soft microfibre cloth, while dirt and dust can be easily swept or vacuumed away. Laminate flooring, unlike wood flooring, does not require waxing, polishing, or resurfacing.
Quick and easy installation
Laminate floors use a "click-lock" or tongue-and-groove connection, making it one of the quickest and easiest flooring materials to install.
