Unlike a car or a house, you don't have to pay extra for the highly desirable and highly convenient array of features that can come with discount laminate flooring from Floors To Your Home.
How is Discount Laminate Flooring Made?
Every plank of laminate flooring is made of layers. First is the bottom layer, also known as the backing layer. The bottom layer is invisible after the floor is installed, and can have additional features like premium attached pad, which helps with sound reduction and moisture control.
The next layer is the core board. The core board, made of sawdust collected from mills and wood chips and shavings from processing factories, is the real body of the laminate, ready to burn the midnight oil and do the heavy lifting to give laminate flooring its strength. Core board is a dense and dependable material.
On top of the core board rests the decorative layer, or photo layer, a thin slice of laminated plastic that can be designed to flawlessly mimic any variety of stone or tree on earth. The top layer is protected by an aluminum oxide coating, which gives laminate its resistance to wear, scratching, impact, and moisture.
Whether you want the richest mahogany or the most flawless white marble, Floors To Your Home has a flooring choice that's right for you.
Discount Laminate Flooring and the Environment
In today's world it's more important than ever to be conscious of how our actions impact the environment and the planet's health. Laminate is one of the most eco-friendly flooring materials on the market today. In fact, the laminate manufacturing process practices the three R's of responsible environmentalism: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
Since laminate flooring is made of wood particles, no trees are cut down in the laminate manufacturing process. In fact, the core board of laminate is made of wood particles that would otherwise be discarded, reusing and repurposing material into a great new floor. Most manufactures bind the separate layers of laminate flooring together with heat and pressure instead of with chemicals.
In addition to the environmental benefits, laminate's green qualities also provide the extra perk of making it hypoallergenic. The absence of solvents and other harsh chemicals makes laminate safe for people with allergies or asthma.
Click together installation removes the need for chemical adhesives and power tools, promoting cleaner air and energy conservation in the process. Laminate is crafted to last, leading to less frequent replacements and less waste in the landfills. Discount laminate flooring from Floors to Your Home also often come with long manufacturer's warranties, meaning you're buying not just a floor for today, but a floor for years to come.
Discount Laminate Flooring is Easy to Maintain
In addition to its durability and attractiveness, laminate is also easy to care for! Unlike a traditional hardwood floor, laminate never needs to be refinished. Laminate flooring does well with regular sweeping, dry mopping, or vacuuming. The occasional damp cloth is fine. Laminate doesn't require expensive cleaning products or elaborate housekeeping procedures, saving you time and money.
Pet owners everywhere understand the wear and tear that result from welcoming a furry friend into your home. Chewing, scratching, and accidents are all legitimate concerns, but laminate can handle the challenges!
Laminate's durability is measured on the Abrasion Class (AC) Rating. This handy scale ranges from 1 to 5 and indicates what type of usage your laminate flooring is best suited for:
- AC1: Moderate Residential Traffic
- AC2: General Residential Traffic
- AC3: Heavy Residential Traffic and Moderate Commercial Usage
- AC4: General Commercial Traffic
- AC5: Heavy Commercial Use
Every laminate floor style offered by Floors To Your Home is rated either AC3 or AC4. Need a floor that can really take the hard knocks? We offer a great selection of AC4 rated laminates that add toughness without adding to the price. You really can get a beautiful floor and rest easy knowing it can stand up to everything your busy life can throw at it.
Discount Laminate Flooring Fits Your Lifestyle
Laminate flooring is an excellent choice for busy households. The transparent finishing layer provides additional durability and ensures resistance to scratching, staining, impact, and wear.
