Laminate from 2nd Street Floors
Laminate flooring is the result of the fusion of four different layers of material into one versatile, durable flooring product. It can be manufactured into any size and shape, often made to beautifully mimic traditional hardwood planks or stone tiles.

The layers of laminate flooring
Laminate is generally made up of a combination of wood-based materials, typically configured into the following four layers:
- A bottom, backing layer that balances the plank or tile and keeps it straight. This layer also seals the board for moisture protection. This layer is often a built-in substitute for underlayment.
- A high-density core layer that makes up the bulk of the laminate product. This layer is what gives laminate its strength and stability.
- A decorative layer featuring a high-quality, photorealistic printed design. This can technically be anything, but typically features an image of traditional natural flooring materials such as hardwood, stone or ceramic tile.
- A top wear layer that gives each plank a luster and protection from wear, scratches, UV light and stains.
