What is Laminate Flooring?

Laminate flooring is a popular, synthetic flooring product that is designed to mimic the appearance of more traditional materials like hardwood, stone, or tile. It's known for its durability, ease of installation, and affordability. Here are its key components and characteristics:

Laminate flooring is typically composed of four layers, each serving a specific function:

Wear Layer: The top layer is a clear, hard layer that provides resistance to scratches, stains, and fading. It's what makes laminate flooring durable and suitable for high-traffic areas.

Design Layer: This is a photographic image layer that gives laminate its appearance, whether it be hardwood, stone, or other designs.

Core Layer: The core is usually made of high-density fiberboard (HDF) or medium-density fiberboard (MDF), which gives the flooring its thickness and stability. This layer also contains a resin that adds moisture resistance.

Backing Layer: The bottom layer provides additional stability and moisture resistance. It helps to protect the floor from warping.

Characteristics of a Laminate Flooring Installation

Acclimation: Laminate flooring requires acclimation to the environment for a period before installation to prevent warping.

How Laminate is Installed: It typically uses a click-and-lock installation method, where planks are interlocked together and float above the subfloor. This method doesn't require nails or glue.

Subfloor Preparation: The subfloor needs to be level and clean, but laminate can tolerate some imperfections.

Step 2

Laminate Floor

Many of you may be familiar with laminate floors where the joints have separated. It's important to understand that this isn't always a result of installation errors, but often due to swift changes in humidity and temperature. We are proud to be, as we believe, the only flooring installers in Vancouver who adopt a technique of gluing laminate joints, akin to the method used in engineered flooring installations, to mitigate this issue of separation.

Consider laminate flooring for your home!

When considering flooring options for your home, waterproof laminate emerges as an advantageous choice, especially when compared to vinyl. Here are several reasons why homeowners should consider using waterproof laminate in their homes:

  1. Scratch Resistance: Waterproof laminate is more scratch-resistant than vinyl. This makes it a suitable choice for high-traffic areas in your home, ensuring that the flooring remains pristine even under heavy use.
  2. Tolerance to Subfloor Imperfections: Unlike vinyl, waterproof laminate is less prone to issues stemming from subfloor imperfections. This attribute makes laminate a more forgiving and easier-to-install option for homes where the subfloor isn’t perfectly level or has minor flaws.
  3. Warmth and Comfort: Being a wood-based product, waterproof laminate feels warmer to the touch compared to vinyl. This natural warmth adds a layer of comfort underfoot, especially in cooler climates or during colder months.
  4. Authentic Appearance: In terms of aesthetics, waterproof laminate has an edge over vinyl, particularly in direct light. It offers a more authentic look, closely mimicking the appearance of real wood, which enhances the visual appeal of your home interiors.
  5. Water Resistance: Waterproof laminate provides the same water-resistant qualities as vinyl, making it a practical choice for areas prone to moisture, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
  6. Comfortable Underlay Options: With waterproof laminate, you have the flexibility to use a proper underlay that is softer to the touch. This not only adds to the comfort but also improves insulation and sound absorption in your home.
  7. Diverse Underlay Compatibility: A variety of underlays can be used with laminate, many of which are condo and strata-approved. These underlays are designed to be friendly to multi-unit buildings, offering better soundproofing and complying with building regulations.
  8. An advantage over Vinyl in Strata Buildings: In strata buildings, vinyl might not be an approved option due to its attached underpad, which doesn’t absorb sound as effectively. In contrast, the underlays used with laminate are often more conducive to the soundproofing requirements of such buildings.
