What is Laminate Flooring made from?
The Stabilising Layer
A backing layer (often known as the “stabilizing layer”) is the layer that is directly on contact with the floor surface. Although laminate is not directly waterproof, the backing layer increases the moisture resistance and can therefore, improve the durability of the surface by reducing the risk of warping.
The Inner Core/Core Board
The inner core/core board is the thickest layer in a laminate board and is usually made of compressed woof HDF (High-Density Fiberboard). This layer is made to stablilise the board to ensure it keeps in place. The higher the density of the HDF, the higher quality the laminate flooring. This is because it is harder for moisture to penetrate through the laminate flooring and warp the flooring. Effectively, laminate flooring is much a more sustainable flooring choice and can save you money in the long-term.
Print layers (often called design layers) offer design flexibility- you can control how you want your flooring to look! HD printer are often used to create intricate and stunning designs which is, in most cases, done to emulate the look of wood, stone, metal (or any other material).
The wear layer is places on the top of the print layer and acts as a protective coating. It is what ensures the flooring resistance to general use and wear and tear of everyday life. The higher the quality of laminate flooring, the thicker the layering.
Pro’s and cons
1. Perfect for Busy Households
Laminate flooring is perfect for busy households and areas that are prone to wear and tear! Easy to clean and maintain, laminate flooring offers maintenance easy for a busy lifestyle. Even more so, modern laminate often includes a padding layer underneath the backing layer which gives it a softer feel- making it an ideal flooring choice for any area in the home.
2. Laminate flooring is easy to install.
You can achieve good results without needing a professional fitter (although we always recommend professional installation). Unlike carpet or hardwood flooring, installing laminate flooring is much easier with the right skillset. Head to our Manchester Laminate Floor Fitters page to see what our professional fitters can do for you.
3. Laminate Flooring is Inexpensive
Laminate flooring is a cheaper flooring solution in comparison to other flooring options such as vinyl flooring, carpet and hardwood.
However, laminate flooring is not water resistant. Low quality laminate flooring will warp when exposed to water as the HDF itself is displaced by water. Although high quality laminate is incredibly wearing, we recommend alternative flooring options such as vinyl or tiles for a kitchen.
