What is Laminate Flooring? Laminate Flooring is constructed of 4 layers; Back Layer, Core Layer, Design Layer, and Wear Layer. Laminate's durability allows the absorption of heavy traffic making it an ideal flooring choice for active families with kids and pets running around.
Construction of Laminate
Bottom Layer; responsible for protecting the plank against moisture
Above the Back Layer; a durable, high-density board that protects from indentations and moisture
Above the Core Layer; a high resolution photograph of the floor's surface appearance
Top Layer; a clear layer that is made of Aluminum Oxide that protects against fading, stains, and surface burns
