Laminate Flooring

Laminate Flooring May Be The Flooring You Need

One of the best low cost flooring alternatives is laminate flooring. Laminate floors can look like wood, ceramic or stone at a fraction of the cost. The most commonly used laminate look is wood. Laminate flooring is made in layers that are laminated together. First there is a very durable aluminum oxide wear layer covering a realistic photo layer. The core of laminate floor is made of high density fiberboard. There can be a thin layer of dense foam cushion attached to the back of each laminate plank. The layers are laminated together with adhesive and heat with realistic texture added to the surface. The planks are manufactured in a click together system, so the floor can be installed without nails or glue in a floating floor.

Why use laminate floor instead of the real wood? Some home owners cannot afford real wood flooring, but love the look. Laminate floor planks are a way to get the look and warmth of wood at a fraction of the cost. Many existing homes are not set up for the addition of solid wood flooring and the thickness of its planks. Areas that may have issues with wear or water can use wood laminate floors successfully. Laminate floors will go over any flat, hard substrate without expensive removal of old flooring. Laminate floors go down much more quickly in time sensitive situations. For many, laminate is the best way to go for home flooring.
