Top quality laminate flooring installations are tough and can last for many years with relatively minor maintenance requirements. DIY laminate flooring installations can be performed at home according to an instruction set and carries a far lower price tag.

Of course, laminate flooring installations certainly are not made of real hardwood, but so good is the printing and manufacture of the tough, resin-based melamine wear layer nowadays that it can be made to very closely resemble a hardwood floor, but at a fraction of the cost. In addition, it is also far less susceptible to damage than a wooden floor; the melamine wear layer is so dense that it is very difficult to stain, scuff, scratch or burn with a cigarette. The top laminate flooring suppliers also guarantee their laminate flooring installations; the wear surface may be guaranteed for as long as fifteen years and the actual installation for two years.
Laminate flooring installations are engineered floors that consist of several components. We have already mentioned the durable melamine top layer. This top layer is bonded to a moisture-resistant, wood-based core, in addition to a balancing backing. Laminate flooring installations’planks are typically between six and 17 mm thick and made of high-density fibreboard. Nowadays, the latest Fourth Generation “Click” system is employed, with the flooring planks inserted at 30-degree angles to each other. To finish off all laminate flooring installations, colour- and style-matched skirting, end caps, expansion, adjustment rods, quarter rounds and stair noses are used.
