Construction:  Laminate flooring is constructed from 4 layers that are fused together to create 1 extremely durable surface.  The four layers are:


A laminate floor is a floating floor system, which means that the joints between the boards are either glued together, or are constructed to lock together.  It is not nailed to the subfloor, and is usually installed over a foam underlayment.


Style and Color:   Today's laminate flooring is designed to have the look and feel of their natural counterparts, with textured surfaces which give the floor dimension at a more affordable cost and easier maintenance. Some of the styles include rustic hardwoods and natural stone patterns.  Laminate flooring usually comes in either planks or square tiles.  When selecting a color remember that lighter colors make a room appear larger while a darker color create a more intimate feel.  Choose a floor color that will either coordinate or contrast with existing cabinets or furniture.  


Upgrading:    Ugrading laminate flooring offers a wider selection of styles, textures, and colors, as well as extended warranties and a more durable product.


Care and Maintenance:  Although laminatte flooring is designed to stand up to the toughest household use, it does require a few important steps to ensure that it remains looking its best.  Vaccuum using a non-beater brush, or dust mop to remove loose dirt.  Clean with a damp mop and a manufacture approved floor cleaner.  Take care not to saturate the floor.   Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, soap based detergents, waxes, polishes, or scouring powder, as they may scratch or dull the floor's surface.  Wipe up spills immediately, and do not allow liquids to stand on the floor for any period of time.
