Laminate flooring is a beautiful, low maintenance, long-lasting type of flooring. It has the appearance of wood flooring but there is actually no solid wood used in its making.
Laminate floors are layers of material glued together under high pressure. Most laminate flooring has a moisture resistant layer under a layer of HDF (high density fibreboard). The top layer has a photograph texture of real wood. A cellulose resin top coat protects the laminate flooring making it perfect for anyone wanting a durable floor for a fraction of the price of a hardwood floor.
Laminate flooring is more environment-friendly than other flooring types as it uses less wood in its construction.
