Laminate flooring, also known as floating wood tile, is a type of multi-layered flooring made via lamination. It’s a popular flooring option for residential homes, offering a similar appearance as hardwood but at a fraction of the cost. Of course, there are other reasons to choose laminate flooring.
Engineered hardwood floors are constructed with ply layers, that are cross layered, glued and pressed together to form a plank. According to Floorfacts.com, manufacturers use anywhere from 3-12 layers of wood to construct planks, and in general, the higher the number of layers used, the better the quality of the floor.
