Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring has been around for many years but growth has significantly risen recently thanks to better designs and also cheaper manufacturing costs. It is a great cost-effective alternative to more expensive flooring options such as solid wood and engineered wood.  It is available in different thicknesses, and in a wide range of different colours and styles so there is sure to be something you will fall in love with.

 

 

What is a laminate floor?

A synthetic floor covering made up of many different layers. This type of flooring is made to simulate wood, stone or tiles by using a high resolution photograph under a transparent protective surface layer. A High Density Fibreboard (HDF) core sits beneath the photographic layer to form the main composition of each board and is extremely stable. A final balancing layer is added to the base of each plank which guarantees the boards will not cup or bow when installed.

Why laminate?

It is a great choice if you are looking for a cost effective, durable floor which can be installed quickly and easily.  The range includes wood, tile and stone designs, available in various different colours and patterns, which are sure to complement any modern or traditional space.  All of our laminate floors are all suitable to be used with underfloor heating.

 

The surface layer has a scratch guard added to offer extra protection from unwanted damage, dents and scratches.  Laminate floors require minimal maintenance and hygienically it makes a great alternative to carpet.  Read our Flooring Care and Maintenance Guide for tips and advice on looking after your floor.

 

The majority of laminate floors are not waterproof but we do have a few options available with a waterproof warranty (Hydroseal) allowing you to use them in areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and utility rooms.
