How to shop for the best laminate flooring
flooring is a remarkable echo of genuine wood, stone, and ceramic tile. A
multi-layered product, fused to make one entity, includes a backing, core,
design layer, and a top clear aluminum oxide coating to protect the surface
from scratches and scuffs. This highly affordable product also comes with
numerous advantages such as durability, easy-care, and simple installation.
Like anything else, laminate has different quality levels, so here are some
tips on selecting the best one for your installation.
This product has long been a popular alternative to genuine wood, but now
a waterproof type was introduced to the US market. Now it can be installed in
every room, including kitchens and baths. A unique construction keeps spills at
the top, eliminating any concerns about absorption, staining, and peeling. Please be mindful that the original,
water-resistant version is also on the market, so be very specific about which
version you want
A more robust laminate floor means a higher quality one. Thicker surfaces
hide subfloor imperfections, eliminate squeaks and other noises, and offer more
design options. If you can, try to opt
for a thickness of 10-mm or 12-mm.
