A durable flooring option for your home.

How Laminate Flooring Can Fit in your Home

If you are looking for a flooring option that is both affordable and durable, then one option to consider is laminate flooring. Laminate is designed to be a great alternative to other more expensive options. Some laminate floors are built to provide the same texture and feel that other choices, such as oak, may provide. Laminate is made with multiple layers to create a product that is built to last. Three of the layers that make up laminate are the wear layer, the decorative layer, and the core layer. These layers work together to construct a flooring option that is ideal for those rooms with heavy foot traffic.

The decorative layer makes it so that your laminate floor can have the exact look you want. This layer is made up of a high definition photo. Home owners are able to choose the image they want their floor to mimic. A major concern that customers have is that they do not want their floor to simply just be a large photograph.

Recent technological advancements have allowed for your laminate floors to have textures. This means that your laminate floor that has the photographic image of hardwood can be made to feel as though it actually is hardwood!

The other layers are the wear layer and the core layer. The wear layer provides that protection your floor needs. It is able to battle even the toughest of opponents such as pets or high heels. The core layer ensures everything is in place and it even fights off outside elements such as moisture.
