Purchasing a new floor can be a daunting task. If you are looking into laminate flooring, it is important that you understand the specifications before making a purchase. Invision Hardwood & Décor has provided a basic guide to simplify the ins-and-outs of laminate flooring.
What Is Laminate Flooring Made Of?
Laminate flooring is a type of floor board that is comprised of four layers.
- The tread layer is the top layer and it is designed to be extremely durable, transparent, and stain resistant. This layer protects your laminate flooring from damage and helps extend its longevity.
- The decorative layer is the pattern of the laminate flooring. If you’ve chosen a wood, stone, or alternate design, the decorative layer is the visually stimulating aspect of the floor.
- The fiberboard layer provides impact resistance and stability to the laminate flooring. It is the padding that makes the laminate comfortable to walk on.
- The bottom layer helps the laminate flooring absorb moisture and it is generally reinforced with melamine.
The Different Patterns of Laminate Flooring
Laminate offers many different patterns. This type of flooring can come in a wooden look like cherry, oak, walnut, maple, or many others, a stone look, and other special designs. Explore all of the options before you commit. You’ll be surprised at how many choices there are.
Overall, this type of flooring is affordable, easy to install, well designed, durable, and it comes in a plethora of patterns. If you are looking for a new type of flooring for your house, laminate may be the best choice for you.
