- Laminate flooring is composed with a core that is made up of a composite wood product most commonly, MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) or HDF ( High Density Fiberboard) this allows the laminate to hold up to moisture and be more durable than a natural hardwood surface.
- Laminate floors are impact, wear and stain resistant. They do not need to be waxed or polished. Cleaning up spills is simple as they are water resistant.
- Laminate floors are hypoallergenic, and are stain, fade, and moisture resistant.
