Natural Stain Resistant Flooring
If you have been out shopping for a home, you may have come across the use of laminate hardwood flooring. There are a variety of reasons why it’s used more these days. Price is, of course one of them, but traditional laminate floors have a high resistance to stains, scratching, and fading from sunlight, which makes them more visible.
Laminate Flooring Construction
The usual construction of laminate flooring is constructed of a core of high-density fiberboard, a backing of melamine laminate, and topped with an image done on photographic paper. The cores are from 2 to 4 inches thick. The thicker ones are more stable, don’t buckle easily, and have a more hardwood sound when stepping on them. The choices for the top layer image are natural flooring like stone or wood. Even so, their toughness is vulnerable to heavy furniture dragged across them or the claws of hefty dogs. The hybrid laminate uses a veneer of real wood that is extremely thin. Laminate is harder to repair than hardwood. But there are repair kits for chips and touch-up work, which Keith Clay Floors stocks. Plank replacement is also available.
Low Maintenance Laminate Flooring
On the maintenance side of the coin, Laminate floors don’t require waxing or polishing. Though a particular padding is needed to reduce noise. This is great news for families looking for easy solutions.
