Laminate 101

You may be thinking, “What exactly is laminate?” Laminate is a versatile floor composed of various materials fused together in layers. The backing creates a sturdy bottom layer that protects the floor from moisture intrusion, which prevents warping. The inner core layer is generally made of a very dense fiberboard that gives the floors their strength and durability. On top of the core layer is a printed layer that provides laminate with the desired appearance, often mimicking hardwood or stone. The top is a clear wear layer that protects the floor’s surface from scratches and scuffs.

Benefits of Laminate Flooring

Laminate is popular among Avon homeowners for various reasons. It has many benefits, including water resistance. This quality allows laminate to be installed anywhere in your home, including moisture-prone areas like the basement and the bathroom. Laminate is also very easy to clean, making it a preferred choice for busy families. Regularly vacuuming or sweeping combined with occasional mopping for a deeper clean is all that’s needed to keep your laminate floors looking nice. Another advantage of this type of floor is the style versatility. As we mentioned above, laminate can replicate the look of other materials. In addition to the standard hardwood and natural stone varieties, advanced flooring technology even allows laminate to replicate those materials that are harder to get. Reclaimed hardwood, exotic woods, and aged metals are a few of the options available. If that’s not enough, some modern laminate options also incorporate textural features to further create the illusion of another material.

If you’re looking for new floors on a budget, laminate might be just what you’ve been looking for. It’s practical, versatile, and looks great.
