Laminate Flooring

Flawless, beautiful, and durable

Laminate Flooring in Beamsville, ON

Laminate flooring is manufactured using a combination of durable wood-based materials, which are layered on top of each other to form a plank. These planks are designed to mimic the look of hardwood or stone with a more comfortable underfoot feel. Laminate flooring is extremely durable because each plank has a protective top layer as well as a high-density core layer for added strength and stability.

Laminate: flooring in layers

First comes the backing layer. This layer adds stability, balance, and moisture resistance. Next comes the core board, which is the bulk of the laminate plank. This is often made of a high-density material that gives each plank its strength. Third comes the photographic image decorative layer, which includes a high-quality print of just about any flooring material, from stone to genuine hardwood. Finally comes a wear layer, which helps the plank resist scratching, wear, sun damage, and stains.
