Laminate flooring has become an excellent alternative to hardwood, with the same appearance as natural wood at a significantly lower cost. They are made in layers, with the bottommost layer acting as a backing to enhance the board’s ability to resist moisture. The next layer consists of the inner core, which is made from a high-density fiberboard fortified with a melamine resin to further increase durability and provide premium sound absorption. Next is a photographic film layer which contains a high-resolution image, designed to mimic the appearance of solid wood. The final layer is one created specifically to protect the flooring. This clear protective layer creates a durability that can compete with real wood while also providing resistance to wear and damage.
Carpet Market One provides laminate flooring that, aside from being extremely durable, also comes in many different styles, designed especially to imitate specific species of wood. In addition to recreating color and grain patterns, our laminate has a variety of textures and finishes, some of which include distressed, hand scraped, glossy and smooth-surface. In addition, we offer different options for the edges of the flooring, including beveled, wax and square. Whether the theme you are reaching for is contemporary or shabby chic, we have many different styles of laminate at your disposal.
Another benefit of laminate flooring is that it is considered to be a very green option, taking into account that it does not require the same amount of resources as hardwood flooring does. In addition, because it has several protective layers, laminate flooring does not need to be replaced as often. Its durability and moisture resistance also makes laminate ideal for any room. This is especially true when the floors are being installed by our professionals, who have had years of experience with this material. Due to the price, style and durability, laminate has become the obvious choice for residential as well as commercial properties.
