Laminate

Laminate flooring technology has improved so much over the past few years it is sometimes difficult to tell the difference between it and real hardwood. Bevelled-edge laminate replicates the width, colour and look of traditional and rustic solid hardwood flooring.  Laminate flooring is produced in board form and the manufacturing process involves the layers in the laminate floor being pressed together under a high temperature and pressure.  The top layer is made from a decorative paper photo and overlay in a melamine resin, a highly resistant material contributing to its hard-wearing feature.  The core layer is produced from compressed wood fibres, either HDF (High Density Fiberboard) or MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard).   The bottom layer is made of a special elastic paper giving the floor stability.  Laminate floors are wear, stain and fade resistant making it easy to clean up spills. Laminate floors do not need to be waxed or polished and are hypoallergenic, making them environmentally-friendly.
