Laminate

Selecting Laminate Flooring

Essentially all laminates are composed of three layers, a surface layer, a core layer and a backing layer. These layers are fused together under extreme heat and pressure to form a hardwearing board. Colour and pattern of the board result from a printed photograph included in the surface layer. Because of the photographic technology used to produce the board's pattern and colour laminate flooring is available in a wide variety of styles with few limitations. Wood and stone effects are very popular but are by no means the only finishes available.

Location and Use

Laminate floors are suitable for most rooms in the house. We particularly recommend them for areas which are heavily used such as your kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms. They are also ideal for "special purpose" rooms such as your home office, library and workshop. Laminates are extremely durable, great for homes with a high degree of foot traffic. They are exceedingly easy to maintain without costly chemicals or polishes and will not fade, even in direct sunlight.
