As you see the New Year peaking over the horizon it may be time to consider what you are going to do for your spring-cleaning this year.  If you are planning new flooring installation as part of your endeavors, you may very well want to consider LAMINATE NEW FLOORING choice.

 

To better evaluate whether or not you should choose LAMINATE NEW FLOORING, it would undoubtedly be best if you understand what, exactly, it is, and how it is constructed.  Laminate flooring can be described as “multi-synthetic layers fused together simulating various materials with the use of a photographic appliqué that then is covered with a clear, protective layer.”  In actuality there are four layers:

•    Backing Layer – Typically a Melamine Plastic Layer that lends stability and protects against moisture from the sub-floor.
•    Core Layer – Typically high-density fiberboard.
•    Decorative Layer – A “Print Film” layer that has the appearance of the desired flooring look-a-like:  hardwood or tile.
•    Wear Layer – A durable, clear layer that provides protection and stain resistance.

These “layers” become the finished product via the following procedure:
•      The layers are stacked with great precision.
•      The layers are “pressed” using pressures of up to 600 psi and 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 – 30 seconds.
•      Cooling next takes place, ensuring that they fully cure and acclimate, and the boards stabilize.
•      The boards are milled and cut into planks.
•      The finished product is inspected and then is ready for shipment.

 

With that basic understanding you can now better decide if you truly want to consider LAMINATE NEW FLOORING.
