Apollo Flooring knows redecorating homeowners are drawn to laminate for two reasons

First, laminate is one of the fastest ways to remodel a floor. Second, is its unusual product performance, capable of withstanding dents, fading and stains. Laminate is no longer simply a value alternative to wood, ceramic and porcelain tile or natural stone. It has become a class of flooring all its own. These days, laminate flooring is all about style and diversity, better overall quality, extremely precise digital imageries and surface textures that accurately trace the image beneath.

They are renowned for durability and cleanability, and other than putting down an area rug, laminate is one of the quickest floor makeovers possible.


Laminate for a hard surface look

Laminate takes today’s hard surface looks a step further not only with wood, tile and stone looks but also with long planks and tiles for custom looking floors.

Exotic woods

Having arrived from Europe almost 2 decades ago, laminate flooring was inspired by countertop materials, only it is at least 20 times stronger. A clear surface layer protects the image beneath from wear and stains. The flooring experts at Apollo Flooring can explain to you about surface wear ratings for laminate flooring, with higher numbers representing greater wear resistance and greater warranty protection. The body core gives laminate its stability while the bottom layer, similar to the top but without the image, prevents warping, cupping and crowning in the planks.

Laminate is known as a “floating floor”, put down without an attachment to the subfloor with glue, nails or staples. The once-necessary method of gluing tongue and groove joints is a thing of the past making the click together technology a favorite among do-it-yourselfers or homeowners wanting little disruption.

Some of the most popular in wood looks right now in laminate include grey woods, reclaimed looks, antique and vintage replications. And of course there are still the traditional light to dark shades and grainings of natural oak. Larger format stone and ceramic in tiles of up to 12 inches or more are popular since they can be purchased individually or in planks of up to four tiles for a quickly installed plank of about 16 by 48 inches.
