Laminate is a strong, scratch-resistant, and highly durable flooring surface. Protected by a tough external layer and resin coating. It's great for high traffic areas and houses where there are pets and children. Laminate is highly resistant to impacts and has a lifetime of stain, fade, and wear resistance.
Laminate's versatile, and can be installed on nearly any type of subfloor, like concrete or even pre-existing vinyl floors. In many cases when the installation of a hardwood floor is not compatible with a subfloor, laminate flooring is a smart option. It can be installed over just about any substrate, including concrete, wood, plywood, OSB, and previously installed vinyl flooring.
