Four layers

You can bring the look of stone to your home with laminate tiles or the look of wood with laminate planks. The overall thickness for tiles and planks ranges from 6 mm to 12 mm. This durable and economic flooring option usually has four layers.

  • The water-resistant backing layer acts as the foundation that protects both the laminate and the subflooring.
  • The inner core, made with fiberboard, provides additional stability as well as resistance to daily wear and tear.?
  • The design layer shows off a realistic image of stone or wood.
  • The transparent wear layer protects the design layer. It resists color fading along with scratches, scuffs, and another abrasion. Quality products have a thick wear layer.

Laminate floors
are put together using the tongue-and-groove method to create a floor that floats over the subfloor. Often, planks or tiles can be installed over existing flooring like ceramic and vinyl as well as concrete and plywood or OSB subflooring. Since subfloors need to be clean and level, repairs may be necessary. Some laminate flooring can be installed over radiant heat as long as the proper underlayment is used.
