As the cost of natural flooring materials like wood and stone spikes, so too does the demand for more affordable flooring solutions. Designed to mimic the appearance of wood (or sometimes stone), laminate flooring is a man-made flooring system comprising four different layers — wear, design/décor, core and back layer/backer — pressed together through a lamination process. Laminate flooring is a suitable choice for your home if you want to recreate the high-end look of wood or stone flooring without the hefty price tags.
Hello, my name is John and this is my new flooring blog. Last month, my wife and I finally got around to replacing the flooring in the downstairs rooms of our home. We had been meaning to do this since the day we moved in but one thing or another always got in the way. I contacted a flooring company who talked me through the various types of flooring I could have, explaining the drawbacks and the benefits of each type. In the end, we decided to have hardwood timber floors in our home as we wanted a traditional look. I hope you like my blog.
