Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring solution fused together with a lamination process and is generally made up of 4 layers that are combined under high pressure and heat to produce the final product.

This provides stability and prevents warping
This layer gives Laminate its strength and flexibility and provides more stability
This is the second top layer which shows the design such as the colour or the grain
This is a clear melamine resin which provides a tough durable layer that is resistant to deep scratching and gouging

Fitting & Maintenance

Laminate is suitable for any room other than Bathrooms. It can be fitted on most surfaces as long as they are flat and smooth. It should always be fitted in the same direction and run along the longest wall. There are several underlays available to improve sound proofing and to improve insulation which we can offer advice on in store.

Daily dry mopping or wiping of the floor and regular vacuuming will keep dust and dirt at bay. You can purchase laminate floor cleaning solution. Wet moping, bleaches and other cleaning agents should be avoided as this can cause the planks to swell, warp and wear off prematurely.
