Laminate Flooring is constructed in layers. The bottom layer acts as the backing and is designed to resist moisture. The next layer is the inner core, which is made from high density fiberboard reinforced with a special resins. The image design layer carries a high resolution image and the top layer is the wear layer which is designed to protect your laminate flooring from fading, scratches and damage from wear and tear.

Some of the benefits of laminate flooring include:
- Laminate flooring is highly durable.
The resin coating and tough external layer protects your flooring from scratches and damage, even in high traffic areas or in homes with children and pets. Choose laminate flooring with an AC rating above 3 for light commercial or general residential use.
- Laminate flooring can be installed on nearly all types of subfloors,
including pre-existing vinyl and concrete. Laminate can be installed in many instances where hardwood flooring is not an option.
- Laminate is hypoallergenic,
since there are no crevices in which dust particles and other allergens can be trapped. That makes laminate a great choice for people who suffer from allergies and asthma. In addition, the underlayment acts as a moisture barrier to prevent the formation and sporing of mold while protecting the floor from damage.
- Laminate flooring combines the beauty of hardwood with the affordability of laminate without compromising on durability.
