Laminate wood flooring experienced great success in Europe and is now extremely popular in South African homes as a result of its cost effectiveness, durability and hygiene benefits. There is no denying the fact that laminate wood flooring can provide anyone with a home that is modern and cosy at the same time. An aesthetically pleasing floor that is highly wear resistant is what you can expect when opting to install a laminate floor.
These types of laminate wood floors are made from a hard resin melamine that is bonded to a wood base. This wood base forms the core of the wood floor and is somewhat moisture resistant. A backing is then bonded to the back of the wood base which makes the whole unit extremely hard and durable. A photographic layer of various types of finishes is affixed to the surface of the wood base and coated in a protective laminate covering. This covering makes the laminate floor extremely resistant to scratches, scuffs and minor burns.
When looking for laminate wood flooring panels from professionals in the field such as Mat Floors, you will find that flooring panels range from 6mm to 17mm in thickness. The moisture resistant wood base used to create each panel is referred to as a high density fibre board.

This makes it extremely easy to carry our repairs on the floor, or even replace certain planks. Foam or rubber underlay’s can be used to lessen noise and cushion walking.
