Recently, laminate floors have made a strong surge into the North American market. Sold in Europe for more than a decade, laminate flooring has experienced the largest growth ever recorded in the flooring industry. There is no mystery for this popularity. Laminate flooring can have the style and look of natural flooring products; i.e. hardwood, bamboo, or cork. but it is a man made product designed to endure more than average wear and tear. High pressure Laminate is a four layer composite, which when fused under high pressure, results in one extremely hard surface.
High Pressure Laminate is a product which offers outstanding durability and combines the best of both worlds. It will not scuff, indent or fade in high traffic areas and can “mimic” nearly anything, from many types of hardwood to bamboo. With laminate, you can have the look you want but with superior durability, long lasting performance and ease of maintenance.
Laminates can have a definite advantage for the active household that wants the look of natural wood or ceramic. Unlike natural wood, scratching, denting and spills are not a worry plus damp mopping is all you ever have to do to clean.
