Laminate is a more durable alternative to hardwood flooring
High-Quality Laminate Flooring
Hardwood can certainly add natural beauty to any setting, but it does lack the durability to handle busy households. For these areas, be sure to take a look at laminate flooring. Laminate looks exactly like real wood, but it features a stronger and more stable construction. As a result, laminate can handle households that are busy with children and pets. How does laminate combine wood’s looks with extra durability?
All laminate floors have a similar layered construction that results in extra strength and support. The top layer, for example, is called the wear layer, and it is specially-made to combat scratches, scuffs, and other surface blemishes. Some laminate options have thicker wear layers than others, but no matter what, a laminate floor will handle every day wear and tear better than hardwood. Underneath the wear layer is what is referred to as the design layer. This layer includes a high-definition wood visual, so laminate planks look exactly like real wood. For a premium wood appearance, be sure to choose a laminate floor with a textured wear layer!
The final layers are called the core and base layers, and they provide laminate planks with exceptional dimensional stability. With these layers, laminate planks will not collapse under heavy foot traffic, and they also handle humidity and changing temperatures. More importantly, the core and base layers provide the planks with some moisture resistance. As a result, laminate flooring, unlike hardwood, can handle moisture.
