Hardwood and tile flooring are some of the most popular and common flooring types on the market. However, it’s not always the most practical option for those seeking low-maintenance and budget-friendly flooring.
Laminate flooring offers the look of hardwood and tile using high-definition photos on the decorative layer. They are made of multiple layers of composite wood that are fused, including a core and base layer made of fiberboard and other materials offering more stability and protection from most moisture.
The finish layer of laminate flooring protects from scuffs and other everyday wear and tear better than a lot of hardwood brands. In turn, this flooring looks and feels like hardwood, while being moisture-resistant and more affordable.
Laminate flooring can be installed anywhere hardwood flooring can be installed, and even in places where it cannot.

One of the many pros of laminate flooring is its easy installation, which cuts down on cost and labor.
Most laminate flooring is installed using a click-lock method where the planks are placed together like a puzzle on top of the subfloor. This is known as a floating floor, which we don't recommend in rooms where cabinets will be placed on top, like kitchens. This is because floating floors need room to expand and contract naturally and can cause issues when needing to replace planks.
