The many benefits of laminate flooring

 
Laminate flooring has evolved over the years with micro beveling, better seaming, deeper embossing, and clear, vibrant digital photography. With durability, high water resistance, low maintenance, and an uncomplicated installation, this has made it one of the most popular alternatives for solid wood flooring. It's also long-lasting; when installed correctly and maintained well, it can last upwards 25 years.
 

High design

 
With true-to-life images of wood, stone, and other natural materials, sometimes even the flooring experts have difficulty discerning it from the real thing. Of course, you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for the real thing! Deep embossing adds to the illusion of wood grain. Unlike something created by Mother Nature, where there can be inconsistencies, every board has the same quality and appearance level.

Waterproof capabilities

 
A newer, more advanced version features unique construction and materials, such as the more stable high-density fiberboard core, making this spill-proof and eliminating concerns about absorbing, staining, peeling, and rippling. Waterproof laminate flooring can be installed in any room, including kitchens and baths, which was once avoided because of its wood content. Since the original water-resistant version is still active, be sure to tell our flooring expert which is best for you.
 

High durability rating

 
Abrasion Criteria is a one-to-five number system separated into residential and commercial installations. It is the most reliable way to determine the best laminate flooring for your installation. As numbers increase, so do strength levels. For example, AC1 and AC2 are for low and low-to-moderate floors, respectively. AC3 and AC 4 are best for residential use, as they run the gamut from moderate-and-high foot residential foot traffic and light commercial use. AC5 is for heavy commercial use.

Value in thickness

 
Thicknesses range from 7-mm to 12-mm, but thicker is always better. A more robust surface guarantees the hiding of subfloor imperfections, eliminates noise, and provides better design options because it's easier to carve on a stronger surface than a thin one. If you want high quality with an authentic hardwood feeling, opt for 10-mm or 12-mm.
 
A good installation will affect appearance, performance, and longevity and enhance certain characteristics. For instance, we might use caulking or joint extenders to increase the laminate flooring water resistance.
