Laminated flooring is a newly developed multi-layered synthetic flooring surface fused together using a laminate glazing process. Laminated floors are made using an interior plastering process that imitates the look and feel of wood. Laminated floors are used for commercial and residential applications alike. Laminated floors have several benefits that make them so popular. The following article will explore some of these benefits and explain why they are worth having in any home or commercial space.

One of the most popular reasons why laminate flooring should be installed in any room of the home is because of the many advantages it has over real wood flooring. Laminated flooring mimics the look and texture of real wood but is more durable than real wood. Laminate is highly resistant to scratching and absorption – two common issues with real wood floors. Laminated flooring can withstand high traffic and wear because it is protected by a protective layer of melamine resin beneath a clear protective coating.

In addition to the above-mentioned benefits, laminate floors are very easy to install and repair. Most laminate flooring come with easy to follow installation instructions and with all of the hardware necessary to complete the installation of your floor. If you ever do need to purchase new flooring for any room in your home, most flooring shops where you can buy laminated flooring even offer repair warranties on most of their products.

One of the greatest benefits of laminate flooring that makes it so popular is its durability and resistance measures. Laminated floors are able to resist scratching and absorption because the top layer of the material is protected by a thin protective layer of melamine resin. The melamine resin layer is so thin that it is invisible to the human eye. While most laminated flooring does not require gluing or staining to the floor itself, there are a few exceptions. The majority of laminate floors that are sold in stores already includes a protective coating that can be used as a guide when placing the floor directly on the ground.

Another benefit of laminate flooring over real wood or tile is that the planks can be stained or painted to make them even more attractive and durable. Although they are laminated, the planks still have the ability to absorb the moisture from the air. This will cause the planks to expand and contract depending on the outside temperature. Although a slight, mildewy smell may be associated with laminated floors, this odor is only present if the planks are placed in an area that has a high humidity or if the planks are exposed to a lot of heat.

While all three of these positives mentioned above are great benefits of laminate flooring, there are a few negatives as well. The biggest problem is that laminated flooring tends to be more susceptible to scratches and scuff marks than real wood or tile. In addition, although laminate is much more resistant to moisture damage than other types of flooring, it still is not as durable as other materials. Lastly, because the planks are made of such a thin veneer, they can warp if placed in a high traffic area. While this type of damage is not usually permanent, it can be very difficult to repair and can greatly affect the overall look of the room that it is placed in.
