Laminate is the chameleon of the floor world. It can emulate hardwood, tile or stone, and it gives you those looks at a lower price. This durable, affordable floor surface resists stains, fading and moisture.
Laminate is extremely earth-friendly flooring. It uses fewer trees than real wood, and because it is easy to pull out, old laminate can be reused or recycled rather than discarded. Manufacturers are moving toward greener practices, such as incorporating recycled wood fibers that could otherwise end up in landfills and using post-production waste as fuel.
