Laminate flooring is constructed of a protective wear layer over a decorative sheet containing the pattern, supported by a rigid core and bottom balance layer to help prevent warping. As a result, laminate floors are durable, easy to maintain and are more resistant to stains, fading, moisture, scuffs, and scratches. It provides a wide array of styles, colors and textures that are both aesthetically pleasing and budget friendly. Laminate is better suited than hardwood to handle liquid spills, and highly resistant to water, dogs, cats, chairs, and even high heels. Great choice for high-traffic rooms, such as entryways and hallways, and high moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.
