Why you Should Choose Laminate
Many consumers view laminate as a “cheap” flooring option. This opinion makes sense because many people assume that manufacturers are sacrificing quality for a better price. This perception, however, is false due to the fact that laminate flooring offers many benefits that make it a viable substitute to hardwood.
The core layer of laminate flooring is made using recycled wood fibers that would otherwise be burned or placed in a landfill. The high-resolution image layer of laminate also means that no trees are harvested to manufacture the floor.
How to Install Laminate Flooring
Most laminate floors use click-and-lock installation. This makes the floor easier to install, as there is no gluing or nailing required.
Waterproof Laminate Flooring
Laminate is incredibly durable. The wear layer of laminate is made using a plastic resin combined with aluminum oxide. This makes the wear layer extremely resistant to scratches, dents, water, and scuffs.
Laminate is moisture-resistant. The wear layer keeps moisture from penetrating to the core of the flooring. The core layer is also soaked in resin to increase its resistance to moisture. This makes laminate a lot less likely to warp and change its shape compared to hardwood.
