Introduced to the market just over 30 years ago as an economical alternative to natural flooring, laminate flooring has come into its own. And while originally, it only simulated wooden floors, manufacturers can now provide endless variations to meet growing demands. Due to its resin coating, it is much stronger, scratch resistant and is longer lasting than any hardwood, vinyl or carpet flooring. It is the only flooring choice that can be used on every level of your home. Ease of installation and greening of the manufacturing process put it on equal footing for a flooring choice.
