Thinking about installing laminate in your home?

Laminate is a hybrid floor made from particleboard wood. It is great for the DIY homeowners since it is easy to install. Laminate is installed as a floating floor which means it doesn’t have any nails or messy glues. Laminate has come a long way over the years, the image layer can look realistic. Sometimes the image quality is so believable people can’t tell it isn’t real wood! Laminate can hold up against some moisture but if you are looking to put a flooring that is 100% waterproof vinyl would be a better choice. Since laminate is made from pressed wood, it is durable and scratch resistant. The flooring is low maintenance and easy to clean.
