Laminates are one of the hottest trends in flooring today! Offering a wide variety of color and tone, they create a great backdrop to your decorating scheme. Laminate floors are most often made to look like hardwood, tile, or stone.
Laminates are constructed with a wear layer that protects a decorative-image sheet. These two layers are bonded to a rigid core – usually fiberboard with a bottom-balancing layer to prevent bowing. Laminate flooring offers especially low maintenance and high durability. It’s perfect for families with children, pets, or busy lifestyles.
Mohawk’s new GenuEdge Technology features the most realistic hardwood looks ever seen in laminate flooring. This superior visual effect is achieved through an innovative process that allows the paper to roll over the edges of the laminate plank, just like with real hardwood.
Thanks to ScratchGuard Advanced Finish Protection, Mohawk laminates are perfect for those high-traffic areas in the home. ScratchGuard especially helps prevent the dulling and tiny abrasions caused from everyday dust and dirt.
