Get stylish looks like wood and stone with laminate flooring

Laminate planks and tiles are designed to imitate more costly flooring materials. Because of its make-up, this flooring is thick as well as warm underfoot. Thus, it is comfortable to walk on during every season of the year. This pet-friendly flooring, which resists scratches and stains, is easy to clean. G & J Tile & Floor Covering is a laminate flooring retailer in Foley, Alabama, that offers all types of laminate flooring in a wide variety of colors, textures, and finishes.

Multi-ply composition

Planks and tiles have four layers that are bonded together with a lamination process. The water-resistant backing layer serves as the foundation. It is topped by a fiberboard core, image layer, and transparent wear layer that protects the image layer. Because of its thickness, deep three-dimensional embossing is possible so images of the natural materials look realistic.

Water-resistant flooring

Some laminate floors brands are labeled ‘waterproof,’ but there are always manufacturer guidelines that must be followed. Typically, planks and tiles can be wet for up to 30 hours without a change in structure. Water-resistant brands are more costly than standard brands, which are not damaged by water as long as spills are wiped up immediately. Standard laminate should not be installed in bathrooms or mudrooms.

Some brands are designed to be glued to the subfloor. But usually, this floor covering is installed as a floating floor that is not attached to a subfloor.

This flooring can be placed over hard surface existing flooring as well as concrete and radiant heat systems.
