While laminate may look very similar to hardwood, they are different types of flooring. Hardwood is made from premium wood species, like oak, hickory, maple, and mahogany. In contrast, laminate planks are created by gluing together layers of composite wood. Toward the top of the planks, flooring manufacturers place a HD hardwood visual that’s protected by a clear surface finish. This gives laminate a genuine hardwood appearance, but it’s more water-repellent, affordable, and low-maintenance when compared to real wood floors.
While in the past it’s only been possible to make water-resistant laminate, advancements in flooring technology mean that today we carry 100% waterproof laminate collections. Waterproof laminate floors, such as our Mirror Lake line, are installed with watertight seams that lock out moisture, along with a non-porous surface that keeps spills from sinking into the floor.
Laminate is simple to install and can even be DIY-friendly in some cases. We also offer premium laminate installation services, so you can turn to our experts to get the job done right. Laminate is appropriate for most areas in your home, and it’s a great alternative to hardwood if you are shopping on a budget. Waterproof laminate is recommended for bathrooms, kitchens, mudrooms, and basements. We also have laminate that is durable enough to handle light-use commercial settings.
