What Is Laminate Flooring & Its Benefits
Laminate flooring is 99% wood made with rigid fiberboard and has a higher resale value over vinyl flooring. There are two major types of laminate flooring. Glue down and glueless floating snap planks. With that said, floating floors are the most popular of the two and work well with Houston weather. Held together by a lamination process, the two main layers are the photographic layer and the protective layer. Each layer thickness varies based on the cost and quality of the laminate flooring product.
Glueless Floating Locking Planks
Floating laminate planks with a locking system are the most used flooring. When the floor is floating, it means it‘s not glued down and allows the flooring to expand based on the humidity of the room. This makes this flooring ideal for the Houston Humidity. With this said, this method saves time and money during installation and requires fewer resources like glue and secondary padding.
