Laminate flooring types

Laminate flooring comes in many different types and styles. Part of the appeal of laminate flooring is in the selection of different flooring styles you can imitate.

  • Hardwood Laminate: From standard woods like pine to exotics like Brazilian cherry, laminate can offer the appearance of all the most popular hardwoods.
  • Stone Laminate: You can get the look of slate, marble, and more with laminate floors.
  • Tile Laminate: With special textures and colors for different types of tile, you can get a gorgeous look without the high prices of real tile.

What is Laminate flooring?

Quick-Step is a laminate floor. The base of a Quick-Step floor is a watertight, glued HDF board(High Density Fibre Board). This is covered with a design layer and a transparent overlay against wear and tear. Underneath, a barrier layer stops rising damp and prevents the boards from deforming

The design layer is a photo of wood or tiles that is printed on paper. This paper is submerged in melamine resin. This is covered with a very strong and transparent protective layer. The melamine layers are pressed on the HDF board in a press, under high pressure and temperature. In addition, a wood or tile structure is also pressed into the top layer. For example, the oak designs have a wood texture that coincides exactly with the wood pattern. The highly refined printing technique means that you can hardly tell the difference between the photo and real wood. So you can have a "wooden floor" in your home without sacrificing valuable trees. In addition, you don't have to worry about the disadvantages of a wooden floor. There's a Quick-Step laminate floor for every budget; they are easy and fast to install (yourself) and easy to maintain.


Laminate Surfaces

When it comes to laminate floors, how they feel is just as important as how they look. As you browse the different types of surface textures for laminate floors, keep in mind that much of your comfort relies on the floor's underlayment.

  • Embossed: A raised surface pattern that is created by applying heat and pressure to the laminate.
  • Smooth: Ideal for laminate floors made to resemble materials like stone or marble, smooth laminate flooring offers a texture–free surface.
  • Wood–grain: This type of laminate flooring emulates the texture of wood–grain and can be made to resemble hand–scraped planks, aged wood floors, and more.
  • Distressed: Made to resemble old, well–used floors in look and feel, distressed laminate floors offers a lived–in look to newer spaces.
  • Patina: To create the appearance of a patina, a thin layer of paint is applied to an embossed laminate floor surface and then wiped away, leaving paint in the indented spaces.

Abrasion Class (AC) Rating for Laminate Floors

Make sure your laminate floors can handle the anticipated amount of indoor foot traffic by checking it's AC Rating. The AC Rating classifies laminate floors by the expected amount of traffic, or use.

  • AC1 Moderate Residential: These laminate floors will only stand up to light residential use, and are best for locations like closets or bedrooms.
  • AC2 General Residential: Able to handle moderate foot traffic and can be used in most residential spaces such as dining rooms or living rooms.
  • AC3 Heavy Residential/Moderate Commercial: Fine for every room in the house including high–traffic rooms and commercial spaces with light traffic (i.e. small offices or hotel rooms).
  • AC4 General Commercial: Suitable for all residential uses as well as more heavily trafficked commercial spaces like offices, cafes, and boutiques.
  • AC5 Heavy Commercial: Recommended only for commercial use in high–traffic spaces like department stores and public buildings.

Laminate Pricing

Tempted by discount laminate flooring? Read this section before you commit.

  • Regular price laminate flooring: If you don't want to deal with possibly replacing your laminate floors soon after you install them, you're best off saving up for higher–quality laminate flooring. Look at all your options before purchasing and make sure you're getting your money's worth.

    Note: The higher the AC Rating, the higher the price. If your home only faces moderate traffic, you don't need anything higher than an AC3 rating.
  • Discount laminate flooring: When you're choosing cheaper laminate floors, you could either end up with discontinued products or leftovers of poorly–made floors or rejected faulty planks. If you want to avoid the latter, look for thicker floors with good–quality backings, strong edges, and a valid warranty and stick known brand names. Keep in mind that if you're purchasing a discontinued product, you'll want to buy extra planks of wood, enough excess so you can make repairs if needed because chances are these are end of line stocks that manufactures will never make again and are trying to get ride of old-end-of-line stockpiles
  • Be weary of ebay sellers. It may seem like a good deal but you have no idea what they are selling is real. Ebay is overrun with fake flooring products. So you don't want to be ripped off by ebay sellers. They are not regulated and are very hard to trace.

Laminate flooring is made up of three main components which are bonded together. The wear-resistant surface is made of a durable melamine laminate and bonded to a wood-based (HDF) substrate. The laminate itself is a combination of several different layers merged together under heat and high pressure.

Laminate floors are incredibly durable, easy to care for and come in a wide variety of realistic stone and wood flooring designs. If you love the look of real hardwood but are concerned with the upkeep, then laminate flooring could be the answer.

Why Choose Laminate?

Laminate Flooring mimics the look of traditional woods while offering easy installation and lasting durability. A wear-resistant decorative surface made of resin-based melamine makes the floor extremely difficult to stain, scratch, or burn with a cigarette. Laminate flooring is a floating floor, which means it does not fasten directly to the sub-floor. Instead the planks are clicked together. This enables the floor to be fitted fast and with no real mess.

What Are Laminates Made From?

1. Overlay (Wear Layer)
The top wear layer is provided by the melamine resin, a highly wear resistant material that makes it so hard wearing. This top layer is very similar to the top layer on counter or kitchen work tops but is usually around 40% stronger. This makes the floor highly resistant to scratches, burns, dent’s, stains, etc.

2. DPL (Decorative Paper) or HPL (Decorative Paper + Add High Strength Paper)
It is the decorative paper which gives the floor its individual appearance, ranging from highly authentic wood reproduction, ceramic or stone designs.

3. Core layer
This is made up of either high density fibreboard (H.D.F.). or medium density fibreboard (M.D.F.) This is saturated in resins to make it extremely hard. Most manufactures also add a moisture resistant resin to the core. This is important as it helps keep the flooring protected against moisture penetrating the boards.

4. Stabilizing layer
The bottom layer is the stabilizing layer; this is what gives the laminate flooring its stability. It is made up of moisture resistant resins.
