Learn about the benefits of installing laminate flooring in Mentor, OH

For those looking for the look of a wood floor, but with some distinct advantages over wood, laminate flooring is a great option. Ease of care and maintenance are where laminate floors shine, and Floor Coverings International of Mentor has a wide selection of looks and textures to fit your design goals.

How to Choose the Right Laminate

Laminate is made of four layers. The wear layer protects the floor from scratching and stains, the décor layer is the printed image, the core layer provides structure and durability as does the final backer layer. The planks are usually seven to twelve millimeters in thickness and the width is five to seven inches across.

But, that’s not all…

Another number to look out for is a laminate’s AC rating (abrasion criteria). The AC rating is a one to five scale rating the durability of the material. Five is the highest rating, and the most households install laminate floors with a rating of level three and four.
