Why laminate flooring?
Price and Installation
Laminate flooring is cheaper and easier to install than hardwood flooring. Laminate flooring can be placed on top of almost any existing floor, excluding carpet, and several manufacturers offer a glue-free, tongue-and-groove system. The interlocking planks make it
an easy installation and it can be uninstalled without damaging the laminate or the original flooring underneath.
Laminate flooring works well in high-traffic areas and homes with pets. It is scratch-resistant, durable and easy to clean. Just use a dust mop or a mop dampened with water. Most manufacturers offer at least a 15-30 year warranty on their product.
Laminate flooring can add to the resale value of your home. Most home buyers are looking for hardwood floors instead of carpet. Laminate gives you the wood look for less and can make your home look more open and modern. It also is environmentally friendly because it uses less wood – if any – in its construction.
8mm Laminate Floring Vs. 12mm Laminate Flooring
The thickness of laminate flooring is mainly 2 types: 8mm and 12mm. Both of them have their own advantages. Buyers can make a decision after learning their characteristic. There are no essential difference between the 2 thickness.
1. Thermal conductivity
8mm is better than 12mm since 8mm laminate is thinner.
2. Foot feel
12mm is better than 8mm as 12mm is thicker and offers more firmness.
There is less noise when people step on 12mm. Laminate Flooring. The thinner, the more floating. And more floating results in more noise. Attached underlayment or Silent Blue Soundproofing can reduce most of the noise.
Many types of 12mm laminate offers hardwood like appearance such as painted V groove and pressed V groove and hand scraped surface which makes your home look more valuable.
12mm is more expensive than 8mm, the most popular type, due to its thickness.

What is Laminate Flooring?
Laminate flooring (also called floating wood tile in the United States and Canada) is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused together with a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood (or sometimes stone) with a photographic applique layer under a clear protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine resin and fiber board materials. There is an European Standard specifying laminate floor covering requirements and testing methods. All our brands meets or exceeds this standards.
Laminate flooring has grown significantly in popularity, perhaps because it may be easier to install and maintain than more traditional surfaces such as hardwood flooring. It may also have the advantages of costing less to purchase and require less skill to install than alternative flooring materials. It is reasonably durable, hygienic and relatively easy to maintain.
