Laminate Flooring and installation
Whether you are remodeling or building a new home, laminate floors are a popular choice. Laminate’s used to be thought of as “the poor man’s hardwood”, but today’s laminates are beautiful floors in their own right.
Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product, fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood (or stone, in some cases) with a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin and fiber board materials. There is sometimes a glue backing for ease of installation. It has the advantages that it is durable, as compared with carpet, and attractive, at a lower cost as compared to natural floor materials.
The top wear layer is incredibly durable and easy to care for. It is also impervious to most stains, spills, burns and extremely scratch-resistant, making it perfect for busy families and pet owners. Laminate floors are installed by floating the planks over most substrates including plywood, OSB, concrete slabs and some existing floor coverings. The planks and tiles have tongue and groove edges that lock them together. These floors are never secured directly to the sub floor, making installation possible almost anywhere.
If you’re like many, you love the look of hardwood, but you’re leaning toward a laminate floor. Today’s laminate wood flooring can be barely be distinguished from wood flooring and it comes with some benefits we just have to have sometimes. PCS Construction brings you the largest selection of laminate flooring that can be found anywhere.
Laminate foors are known for easy installation, being the first type of flooring to offer a clickable and glue-less locking system that virtually changed the industry. And over the years laminate flooring became one of the world’s leading categories in flooring, including bathroom flooring.
There are several types of laminate floors and each has their advantages and disadvantages. Some laminate floors have a more durable finish than others, some are more resistant to moisture, some are simply photos of wood over a high-density foam core, while others are a real wood veneer over their core.
