LAMINATE

Laminate Flooring in Buffalo, NY

Laminate flooring has become an increasingly more popular choice in home flooring over the years. It has a look similar to that of hardwood, but the way it is made and holds up is quite different.

Laminate is made of four layers:
  1. Wear Layer – The wear layer, or the surface layer comes in a variety of high gloss and matte finishes. It serves as a protectant shield from scratching, fading and scuffing.
  2. Pattern Layer – The pattern layer includes the printed floor design that give the laminate its distinctive appearance. You can choose from a diverse selection of designs and prints to customize your floor with the theme or style of your space.
  3. Substrate Layer – The substrate layer is made up of either a high-density fiberboard (HDF) or a medium-density fiberboard (MDF). This layer is resistant to water and is held together with resin and adhesive. 
  4. Backing Layer – The backing layer is made up of either melamine, paper or plastic. It functions to withstand moisture and offer support to the floor.
