What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring is a hard-wearing, low cost alternative to real wood flooring. Designed to look like real wood, it is in fact a composite of several layers, sealed together at high temperature under high pressure. A hardboard, moisture resistant layer is covered with a high quality, precision printed design and then with a clear, tough, wear resistant coating. The top layer is long lasting, scratch and fade resistant, and designed to put up with the every day wear and tear that any family can put it through!
Laminate Flooring and Underlay
It’s a common mistake to lay laminate flooring without any kind of underlay. Not only does the right underlay make your new floor more comfortable to walk on, it can offer excellent soundproofing and provide additional insulation.
Underlay can extend the life of your laminate floor by protecting it from general wear and tear, and certain types of underlay can even protect against moisture.
