There is a perfect style for every home with a wide variety of wood, stone, and ceramic look options. You can count on Pioneer Floor Coverings & Design for top-of-the-line laminate flooring in all of the latest styles. We have a showroom in Cedar City and Saint George, Utah, and a mobile showroom, too.
Laminate flooring composition
Laminate is a durable multi-layer material that resists scratches, dents, and stains. Planks and tiles have a backing layer, fiberboard core, design layer, and wear layer. Waterproof and standard brands are available. Typically, waterproof brands repel water for about one day. Water needs to be wiped up in the given timeframe to avoid damage. Only occasional deep cleaning and routine cleaning are necessary to preserve the 'just installed' look of laminate wood floors.
An independent entity assigns an abrasion coefficient rating to each laminate product, making it easy to judge durability. Planks and tiles must pass tests for resistance to burns, scratches, impact, and stains. The flooring is also tested for swelling when exposed to moisture. Then an AC rating is assigned based on the test results. Flooring with an AC3 rating is appropriate for all home areas, including those with heavy foot traffic.
