Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood, or even sometimes stone, with a photographic appliqué layer under a clear protected layer.
There are many advantages to having laminate flooring in your space:
- It is more inexpensive than any other flooring option on the market. It’s less than half the price of hardwood and cheaper than carpet. It will also save you money in the long run because you won’t need to replace it for many years to come.
- Unlike hardwood, marble or carpet, laminate flooring does not fade in the sunlight and is resistant to stains, impacts and scratches. This is due to the incredibly durable melamine plastic wear layer laminate flooring manufacturers use for the top surface of laminate floors.
- When combined with tough core-board beneath, which can withstand up to 1,200 pounds of pressure per square inch, you will start to see how truly versatile this product is.
