Laminate flooring is made of a base layer underneath a core, often made out of compressed wood material, with an image placed on top that is then covered with a melamine resin. The melamine resin protects and strengthens the materials underneath and adds extra durability.  

Laminate’s Bad Reputation

Over the years, laminate flooring has gotten a bad reputation for being cheap or boring. Originally created in the 1970s, laminate was a less expensive option for hardwood flooring. The first samples were not very realistic and came in very few styless. The first laminate flooring materials were simply less attractive but more durable and affordable than hardwood. Today’s laminate flooring has much more to offer in style, versatility, and longevity. In the past, laminate flooring was associated with water damage due to improper installations and sealing techniques. Today’s flooring installation professionals can install laminate flooring that lasts for years.
