Beauty & Low Maintenance Are Great!
Ok, so you’ve been out there researching all the new products on the market and Laminate keeps popping up. Is it true what they say that laminate floors offer more than beauty & durability? Yes it is and then some!
In years past, you may not have given Laminate much thought. If you already have Laminate flooring, you may not think about it until it comes time to consider replacement. Then all of a sudden you realize that there are many options out there you haven’t had before, and oh! they are really beautiful. So you’re next question is will it work for you? For busy families whose floors need to stand up to kids and pets, Keith Clay Floors believes that laminate flooring is an excellent choice.
The most common laminate flooring designs have a wood grain appearance; some are even made to look like stone or marble. These new Laminates are designed to look good for many years with a minimum amount of maintenance too, and saving maintenance costs is always a good thing.
When you discuss Laminate flooring, let’s identify exactly what we are talking about here. Usually, Laminate consists of four main components that are bonded together. A wear resistant decorative surface made of a resin-based melamine/aluminum oxide is bonded to a moisture resistant wood composition-based core. Then, a balancing backing is bonded to the underside of the core. On the top is a clear cap sheet of aluminum oxide, which provides the protection and stain resistance. Since the resin-filled wear layer is so dense, it becomes extremely difficult to stain, scratch or burn. This means durability to you from day to day extremes all families have.
Laminate flooring in general has evolved into one of the most versatile, easy to work with floor coverings on the market today. These newly colored, textured and styled flooring flooring products go way beyond mimicking hardwood, todays laminate floors completely change a room’s appearance, offering realistic patterns of exotic woods, stone and ceramic tile.
