Laminate is made to resemble hardwood with different plank widths and colors, stone, or ceramic tile. Laminate is durable, scratch, stain, and fade resistant, easy to clean, and hypoallergenic, making it ideal for households with children and pets.
Laminate’s durability is achieved by fusing together several layers of materials into one board. The core layer or the center of the laminate floorboard is made of high-density fiberboard which supports the stress of foot traffic. The base layer is used to stabilize, and the top layer is decorative. All layers are sealed, making laminate ideal for areas that will experience a lot of wear.
