Laminate flooring is a synthetic flooring product made using a lamination process, in which different layers are combined to create clever flooring planks with the effect of real wood flooring or stone/tiles. There is a photographic layer that depicts natural wood or stone flooring, this is then covered by a transparent and scratch resistant protective layer, thereby ensuring that this option is incredibly easy to maintain and keep clean.
The back of the flooring is made from HDF (high density fibreboard) which is designed to prevent dents and wear to your floor and it skilfully resists moisture and temperature changes to keep your flooring flat and looking as perfect as it did the day it was installed. There is then a high performance back layer which further prevents warping and resists moisture.
In comparison to real wood options, laminate flooring is very easy to care for, it is hygienic and a little easier on the pocket! It is relatively durable and requires little skill to lay using the click together joining system. The easy to use click system is present on all our laminate flooring choices.
