Wood-based laminate floors are durable
Laminate is a synthetic flooring material that
is an excellent alternative to natural materials. Wood-look planks and wood,
stone, or ceramic look tiles complement any decor. It is a durable material
that resists scratches and stains. The best brands can be expected to last up
to 30 years. You can find the highest quality laminate floor coverings
The Floor Store. We make it easy to view brands manufactured by top
companies like Beauflor. A mobile showroom complements our brick-and-mortar
store in North Chesterfield, Virginia.
Laminate planks and
tiles are composed of four layers that are pressed together during the
lamination process. The backing layer is topped by a fiberboard core,
photographic image layer, and transparent protective wear layer. Standard plank
textures include smooth, handscraped, and brushed. With a wood-based core,
warmth underfoot is a guarantee.
Laminate wood flooring is available in
standard and waterproof brands. Standard versions resist water, so no damage is
done as long as the water is wiped or mopped up immediately. Waterproof ones
repel water for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. In general,
this timeframe is about one day.
