Flooring Materials

Laminate flooring (also called floating wood tile in the United States) is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood (or sometimes stone) with a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin and fiber board materials.

Laminate flooring has grown significantly in popularity, perhaps because it may be easier to install and maintain than more traditional surfaces such as hardwood flooring. It may also have the advantages of costing less and requiring less skill to install than alternative flooring materials. It is reasonably durable, hygienic (several brands contain an antimicrobial resin), and relatively easy to maintain.

Melamine Overlay

The overlayer protects the floor from scratches, abrasion and stain, while providing a realistic look and feel to the floor. This is a protective cover for your floor and a waterproof seal prevents water from penetrating and damaging the floor.

HDF Core

Below the decorative paper, decides the quality and stability of the floor. Usually made of High Density Fiberboard, this layer is where the waterproof properties work. The fiberboard in a laminate floor may contain more resin, making it less likely to expand in water.
