Laminate Floors looke like wood or tile floors, but offer superior hardness and scratch resistance. Ideal for heavy traffic areas and an ideal option to a more expensive hardwood floor, laminate floors are available in many colors, visual widths and textures. Installed over a foam sheeting as a "floating" floor, laminate floors offer a savings on floor preparation. The foam underlayment is also available with different options.
Laminates come in a variety of styles, textures, finishes and thicknesses. Warranties for laminate floors range from 10-30 years depending on the quality of the laminate.
