All about laminate flooring
Laminate is an affordable and versatile alternative to genuine hardwood or natural stone. While not completely water-resistant, it is more durable and easier to care for than its natural counterparts. Plus, the resemblance is striking!
How is laminate flooring made?
Laminate is so unique because of its layered construction. First comes the backing layer, which mainly adds balance and helps to seal away moisture. This layer is often a built-in underlayment substitute. It's also known as the stabilizing layer. Next comes the bulk of the laminate. This is some sort of high-density material known as the core board that gives the plank its strength and stability. Then, there's the photographic image decorative layer, which incorporates a high-quality image of hardwood or tile. Finally comes a top wear layer that protects against scratching, UV damage, and staining.
