What is a laminate floor? The features of floating wood tiles
What is a laminate floor is one of the most frequently asked questions from homeowners deciding on new flooring. Laminate flooring is synthetic flooring that looks and feels a lot like traditional solid oak hardwood flooring. And what is a laminate floor made of? The general composition of laminate flooring, or floating wood tiles as it is also frequently called, is made of three plywood-like layers, the base layer, a thick middle wooden composite layer and the top decorative layer, which can also in some cases be made of several different layers. The individual layers are fused together through a process called lamination.
The advantages of laminate flooring
The absolute advantage of laminate flooring is its easy installation. Laminate is a handyman’s dream come true. Installation is so simple that many homeowners decide to do it themselves and save a ton of money on installation costs. It can be either click-locked into place, without the use of an adhesive, or glued together, which can be a bit more costly than the first option and also prevents disassembly for a second installation at a later time. After installation, laminate floors do not need to be varnished, as they come pre-varnished, which is also a tight-budget friendly fact. Laminate flooring is also extremely durable and robust, and will, with proper care, beautify your home for decades to come. The life of laminate flooring can be similar to that of traditional solid oak hardwood flooring, but with less maintenance (no sanding and varnishing), because of its higher durability.
