What Is Laminate Flooring?

Laminate wood flooring replicates the look of hardwood floors. It comes in various textures and colors and realistic planks to mimic the appearance of various wood species ranging from Oak to Acacia. To further recreate the look of natural wood, many laminate floor planks feature saw marks, graining and knotholes.

Because of how authentic laminate flooring looks, you’ll be able to update and transform your entire home with that coveted hardwood look — at a lower cost. When you install laminate flooring in hallways, dining and living areas and kitchens, you’ll see your home transform with this beautiful and functional alternative to traditional wood floors.

laminate flooring layers

Since laminate is a synthetic flooring, it consists of fused fiberboard and resin with a photographic layer on top. It features four distinct layers:

  1. Base layer: The back layer, which features melamine reinforcement, is designed to keep the base of the flooring sturdy and stable. This layer also aids in moisture resistance.
  2. Fiberboard core: Laminate’s fiberboard core features a solid coreboard center to add additional stability to the flooring. It helps keep the flooring durable and resists impacts.
  3. Decorative layer: The decorative layer gives the laminate flooring its realistic appearance. By adding a detailed photographic layer, the base layer and fiberboard core transform into a realistic-looking piece that mimics wood, ceramic or tile flooring.
  4. Wear layer: The wear layer is the final layer. It uses aluminum oxide and melamine to create a clear yet durable coating that resists wear and tear.

Why Install Laminate Flooring in Your Home? 

Laminate is one of many affordable alternatives to hardwood. Vinyl is another option that is comparable in appearance to laminate. However, there are differences between vinyl and laminate flooring, including their composition. Both floors improve your home’s aesthetic appearance and value, but laminate flooring offers several other benefits, including the ones listed below.

Versatility

The multitude of wood types, colors and textures laminate flooring comes in makes it easy to find something that matches your home’s architecture and your personal style. Since its appearance replicates that of hardwood, it delivers the same classic and timeless look to any space.

Affordability

Wood flooring, especially the exotic varieties, is considered an investment for a reason. While it offers a good return on that investment, it tends to be more costly upfront than other flooring options. With laminate floors, you’ll experience the same wood floor look and enhance the overall design of your space for a lower cost. For homeowners wanting to find a stylish flooring solution that leaves room in the remodeling budget, laminate flooring is the way to go.

Ease of Maintenance

Unlike original hardwood floors, which require careful maintenance and waxing to keep them looking their best, laminate wood flooring is significantly easier to maintain. All it needs is regular sweeping and occasional mopping to remove any dirt, dust or pet hair that has accumulated on its surface.

Comfort

Laminate wood flooring provides a comfortable surface to walk on, especially if the laminate has a thick underlayment. The multilayer construction means this material feels much better underfoot than wood flooring, so homeowners with toddlers or young children will appreciate the gentler surface. This characteristic also makes laminate flooring an ideal solution for elderly residents.

Durability

Wood flooring can be susceptible to dents, cracks and scratches. Because laminate flooring has four durable layers, it is better able to resist wear and tear. It is also moisture-resistant and doesn’t fade or stain, making it an excellent solution for homeowners with children or pets.

Longevity

Its durability also makes laminate a long-lasting flooring solution — even in heavy-traffic areas of your home, like hallways or living spaces. You can count on laminate to add strength and style to your home for years to come.

Simple Installation

Since laminate doesn’t require much subfloor preparation, it’s easy to install. Our professional installers can carefully, safely and efficiently remove your old flooring and install new laminate planks. Depending on what your old flooring is, our professionals may not have to remove it.

Laminate Flooring Options

Types of Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring clicks together and floats, meaning it is not actually attached to your subfloor. The baseboards hold it in place, so it’s ideal for homes where humidity levels fluctuate and settling may occur. Different types of laminate flooring in our inventory include styles that resemble all your favorite species of wood.

  • Domestic species: Oak, Hickory, Birch, Maple, Walnut and American Cherry
  • Exotic species: Acacia, Brazilian Cherry and many more
  • Sizes: 3 inches, 7 inches and 12 inches
  • Types: Wire-brushed, hand-scraped, distressed and smooth

We also offer laminate flooring that repels liquids while retaining the look of natural wood. Its fiberboard core helps the floor resist swelling, it has watertight joints to prevent water from seeping through and its surface layer has a water-repellent seal.
