Because Granite Bay Flooring and Design is dedicated to providing our customers with the best flooring that meets their design and budget requirement, we have expanded out selection of laminate flooring.
When laminate first appeared, it looked like a good imitation of a wood floor. Today's laminate flooring is virtually indistinguishable from original source wood and stone. Over the years Granite Bay Flooring and Design has picked the best laminate available from innovative manufacturers including:
- Mohawk Industries
- Quick Step
Just as its name evokes, laminate flooring is made up of layers of materials. The top layer is a clear, highly protective coat. Below that is the printed high-definition digital image that gives the floor its soul. Below that are support layers that provide strength and durability. An underlayment to control noise can be adhered to the laminate or installed as a separate membrane.Laminate comes in planks and rectangles or squares that parallel the size and shape of source materials like hardwood, granite or marble. Some innovative laminate designers have stretched the design envelop with cutting-edge surfaces reminiscent of metals or cement.
Laminate flooring is almost as well known for its simple installation as it is for its beauty. Although the technical aspects may vary, laminate flooring is designed to click together without using adhesives, nails or screws. Its construction makes it suitable for areas with some moisture – kitchens and below grade. This floating floor makes laminate ideal for installation over radiant heating.
Wood-look laminate is available in species, finishes, widths and board lengths that are the equal of a hardwood floor. Wood-look laminates can replicate surface textures like handscraping
!. Laminate lends itself well to stone-look floors. For example, a marble-look laminate floor is visually indistinguishable from a real marble floor. Even better, the marble laminate floor weighs less, is far easier to maintain and is accessibly priced!
