Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood and also some designs come in stone. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin and fiber board materials.
Laminate flooring has grown significantly in popularity, perhaps it may be easier to install and maintain than more traditional surfaces such as hardwood flooring. It also has advantage of costing less and requiring lesser skills than installing other alternative flooring materials. It is reasonably durable, hygienic and easy to maintain.
Laminate flooring is packaged as a number of tongue and groove planks, which can be clicked into one another. Sometimes a glue backing is provided for ease of installation. Installed laminate floors typically “float” over the sub-floor on top of a foam/film underlayment, which provides moisture- and sound-reducing properties. A small (1–10 millimeters (0.039–0.394 in)) gap is required between the flooring and any immovable object such as walls; this allows the flooring to expand without being obstructed. We have laminated flooring available in 8.3mm and 12mm
