How is laminate made?
Simplified, laminate is a made of layers of fibreboard that is pressed together. Next, an image is printed to help imitate the look of wood, tile, or stone. To ensure the image doesn’t fade and to add scratch and heat resistance, a clear coating of melamine resins is the final finish. The thickness of the laminate can vary depending on what imitation you are striving for. During installation, they can be installed on all grade levels and on a variety of subfloors. Many manufacturers construct their laminate to be installed differently, from glue to interlocking planks.
The Benefits of Laminate Flooring
Beyond its versatility in appearance, laminate offers plenty more benefits for homeowners. It is one of the most budget-friendly options for those looking to revamp their floors. Because of their resistance to moisture, fading, stains, and wear, they are great for any difficult areas of the house such as bathrooms, kitchens, entranceways, and other high-traffic or humid areas. This makes them a durable flooring option, perfect for businesses that see many customers and homeowners with kids and pets. Because of their clear coating on top, they are easy to clean and maintain. With so few drawbacks and so many benefits, laminate is a favourite flooring option for many.
