LEARN ABOUT LAMINATE FLOORING
Laminate may not be known as the most high-end of floor coverings, but what it lacks in reputation it more than makes up for in ease and affordability. Laminate floors are made of composite materials and realistically replicate the appearance of solid wood, stone, or other expensive natural materials, with dependable quality at a fraction of the cost.

WHY WE LOVE LAMINATE
Laminate has come a long way in recent years, and advancement in photo realistic graphics, texturing and beveling have made it a heavyweight competitor to premium hardwood options. Technology has advanced so much, in fact, that it can be nearly impossible to tell the different between a quality laminate surface and genuine hardwood floors.
Laminate is easier to clean and care for than hardwood—no wax needed—and is much more scratch-resistant. It’s a beautiful option for your living spaces and also comes with a breathe-easy price tag, so you can be happy with your floors and your bank account at the same time.
HOW DURABLE IS LAMINATE FLOORING?
When properly sealed and cared for, laminate flooring will last a good 10 years in your home. Because it’s made from pressed materials and not solid planks, it resists wear and tear, moisture and scratches better than its hardwood counterparts. Laminate also comes integrated with UV protection, so your floors will hold up to sunlight better than wood.
Keep in mind that laminate cannot be refinished like hardwood can, so when the top layer wears down from heavy use, it’ll be time for new floors. In the case of irregular wear, some laminates can be replaced by individual piece to keep your floors as flawless as the day you got them.
LAMINATE ALLERGEN CONCERNS
Hard surfaces like laminate, tile, stone and hardwood provide optimal insurance against harboring allergens in your home. These solid flooring types don’t invite dust mites or mold growth like carpet can and are the easiest to keep clean.
With regular sweeping, vacuuming and mopping, you can easily keep pollen, pet dander and other irritants at bay.
