For those of you who are wondering what a laminate floor is, laminates are a combination of special resins (melamine), a print film and paper layer, a fiber core in the middle, and a resin filled backer sheet that are all fused together into one solid piece.
Although they appear similar to a Formica countertop, laminate floors are really much more durable and scratch resistant. Due to its construction and components, laminate flooring will not stain or fade from sunlight, and the finish is extremely impact resistant. These floors have precision tongue and groove edges for securing the planks together, and they can be installed over most types of subfloors.
One of the really exciting things with laminate flooring is that manufacturers have been able to recreate some of the old historic hardwood flooring styles, like rough-sawn barn oak, American chestnut, knotty pine, and several others. These floors can really add to the charm and feel of a room without breaking your pocketbook. Manufacturers also offer laminate floors in ceramic and stone tile patterns.
