Laminate is one of the most popular flooring choices for durability and affordability. Made to look like real wood, a laminate is comprised of many layers: a wear layer, an image of a real wood product, a high-density core, and a melamine backer. This inexpensive alternative to wood holds up nicely to everyday wear, is stain free, and fade resistant. This product is very easy to install and comes in a multitude of options. Today’s laminate is so realistic, many people can’t tell it’s not a real wood product!
