Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is made to be visually similar to its real wood counterpart. The difference is that laminate floors consist of a backing, core, image and wear layer rather than solid wood.

What is Laminate Flooring?

The backing is designed to keep moisture out, helping to protect the core that is usually made up of a sturdy fibreboard or resin. This is then topped with an image layer - a photographic image of wood on a vinyl board that gives laminate flooring its realistic aesthetic. Finally, the wear layer helps to protect the floor and stop it from becoming worn down over the years.

Why Choose Laminate Flooring?

There are plenty of benefits that make choosing a laminate floor easy. It’s a very popular floor thanks to its easy installation, low maintenance and smaller price tag. Unlike a solid or engineered option, laminate floor is water resistant. This makes it ideal for all rooms in your property, including bathrooms, provided moisture is cleaned up quickly and planks are tightly laid. Where natural materials would expand and contract, laminate floors do not change in response to temperatures. This means they are also safe to lay in utility rooms and conservatories that experience fluctuations in temperatures during the year. Laminate floors are also safe for use with underfloor heating, so would be a great addition to a modern property looking to get the same great wood look with less planning.

Another great advantage is that it is very hard wearing so is perfect for rooms that experience heavy footfall. The top wear layer also helps to make laminate floors more resistant to scratches and dents.

How to install Laminate Flooring?

Laminate floors use the easy click installation method. This means the planks simply click and fit together without the need for any additional adhesive or joining methods. We would always recommend putting down an underlay to protect the floor underneath before installing your laminate boards on top.

Laminate Flooring Alternatives?

If you’re not sure about a laminate, then vinyl floors are your next best alternative. Vinyl floors are great for bathrooms or utility rooms since they are made from plastic, saving you the worry of any moisture damage. Vinyl is easier to install but may need replacing sooner, so it is important to consider your options.
