Laminate Flooring

Laminate Flooring Products Canada

Laminate flooring in Canada is made up of compressed fibreboard with a photographic image on the top layer, to resemble wood, stone or tile. There is a highly durable protective layer that is then placed over the image to give the laminate its resilient finish. Laminate flooring is very highly resistant from scratches and dents. This surface also resists stains and can be cleaned very easily using a broom or vacuum. Many manufacturer s give very lengthy warranties on the finishes of laminate, hence the durability.

There are many different types of looks available and they all have their own characteristics, from embossing features such as knots and grout lines to bevelled edges. Laminate flooring does not come with defects, whereas real hardwood floors have imperfect pieces. Features like these are making laminate a very popular option for flooring in all areas.

Laminate flooring in Cambridge is designed with a “click and lock system” for ease of installation.

This type of flooring is good for moist places such as kitchens and bathrooms.  Keep in mind that it will not endure large amounts of pooled water.  Most laminates are now made with a moisture resistant core, but large amounts of water can damage not only laminate but also solid hardwood and engineered hardwood.
