Laminate Flooring Toronto
Laminate flooring will give you the same stylish look of hardwood with lower initial cost. Because it is more fade, stain and wear-resistant than wood flooring, your maintenance costs should be lower as well.
Laminate flooring is constructed using four layers. The top, wear, layer is designed to resist stains, fading and wear. The next, “design” layer gives the look of wood or stone. The “inner core,” impregnated with a plastic resin, gives the floor strength and moisture resistance. The bottom layer is a backing that creates a moisture barrier.
Most laminate floors can be used anywhere within your home. They’re suitable for wet areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Laminate floors can be installed in basements and over radiant heated concrete slabs. Here are the main advantages of laminate flooring.
- The low flammability of laminate floors reduces your fire risk
- Laminate floors are damage resistant, though they can be scratched by pets or dragging heavy objects across the floor
- Laminate flooring is made of natural stock with low levels of toxicity
