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 further resist moisture, which 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 more 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.
