Laminate Flooring

When looking into flooring options, one affordable option to consider is laminate. Laminate was originally created to replicate the visual of hard surface floors. Now, several layers make up laminate floors and these layers combine to create a durable product that can last for years in your home.

The top layer with laminate floors is the wear layer. The wear layer uses aluminum oxide to create a durable structure that will stand up to the heaviest of foot traffic. This supports any decision to have laminate installed in high-traffic areas of your home.

The decorative layer, otherwise known as the photographic image layer, allows a home owner to have their laminate floor look identical to other hard surface options such as stone, sand, or hardwood.

The core layer is just below the decorative layer, and the core layer enables your laminate to support the weight of that heavy foot traffic. The core layer will give you the comfort of knowing that your floor will hold up when you entertain guests. 

The bottom layer is known as the base layer. This layer gives your laminate the extra enforcement it needs to fight off any effects from moisture or temperature changes.
