Laminate flooring is man-made and constructed from layers;
the bottom layer is highly resistant to moisture so the boards will never warp.
The inner core is usually made from reinforced high density fibreboard mixed
with a resin to resist moisture; this makes it very durable. On top of this you
have your design layer and top wear layer. It looks just like real wood but is extremely tough, hard wearing and resistant to fading and scratches. It's easy to install and maintain, so if you have
a busy home, laminate provides a great finish at an incredible price.
