Laminate flooring is made through 2 different processes known as direct pressure laminate (DPL) and high pressure laminate (HPL). The HPL laminate flooring is the hardest and endures high traffic areas the best. Laminate flooring comes in 5 types of durability, with AC1 being the least durable and AC5 being the most durable. AC1 works well in bedrooms, AC2 in dining and living rooms, AC3 and AC4 is good for kitchens and bathrooms and AC5 is recommended for commercial settings. Laminate flooring requires some kind of underlayment, such as foam padding to provide cushioning and absorb sound, as well as provide a moisture barrier for use in kitchens and bathrooms.
Laminate Flooring Costs: Prices vary based on the size of the room that needs flooring, regional material and labor costs and the quality of the laminate flooring. The material is easy to clean, is extremely low maintenance and installation costs are around half that of hardwood and stone tile. The thinner, less durable laminates are the least expensive while the thicker, more realistic looking versions are the most expensive. Customers can choose from a wide array of colors, styles and textures when making laminate selections.
