Laminate flooring reproduces the look of more expensive wood or stone flooring, but costs much less. Laminate flooring has a fiberboard core with a photographic print of real wood on top. This photograph is sealed on top and bottom by a layer of plastic. The flooring comes in planks that snap together.
Laminate flooring resists stains and fading better than real wood, but because it is an imitation, it doesn't add value to your home like engineered wood, natural wood or stone. Laminate floors are durable and wear well, but they cannot be refinished and must be replaced when damaged. Because it has a fiberboard core, the largest cause of loss reported to insurance companies are due to large spills or excessive moistrue which often damage a laminate floor.

Cheap Chinese Laminate Flooring
Miami Carpet and Tile does not install the ".59 per sq. ft" Chinese laminate flooring. It may be a good temporary flooring for basements and "quick fixes", however it is nearly impossible to perform a quality installation with these materials. The seams are difficult hide - and become more visible over time. The moisture absorption rate is dramatically increased. There is extreme difficulty in processing claims when scratching or delamination occur. The most common reply to complaints from the manufacturer: What you see is what you get!
The cheap Chinese lamitates that are advertised on bus stop benches, 1-800-phone numbers, and some of the "big bog" retailers is a fine DO-IT-YOURSELF product for selected jobs.
Miami Carpet and Tile does not recommend or promote the sale of Cheap Chinese Laminates.
