What is the construction of Mannington laminate?
Mannington laminate is comprised of 4 layers that directly influence the durability of the flooring. The 1st layer is made up of a thin layer of melamine resin designed specifically for protection. The second layer is a photographic simulation of the wood that the product is mimicking, and generally it looks just like the real thing. The Next layer is constructed for shock absorption also called the “core” layer it is designed to protect the final layer of the product. And finally the last layer, layer number 4, it acts a buffer between the core layer and the underlayment used in installation that is placed under the flooring.
Many of the laminates that Mannington offers come with their patented interlocking grid of grooves and tongues and is called “Locksolid,” which makes installation incredibly easy.
Laminate Vs. Ceramic/Hardwood
There are a few perks when it comes to choosing Mannington laminate over ceramic tile or hardwood. Laminate has warmer and softer feel to the touch. So it will actually give in to comfort, where as hardwood and ceramic tends to be cold and hard to the touch. Laminate is also much easier to maintain than ceramic and hardwood when it comes to cleaning and maintenance. Installation is also easier with laminate, and in most cases you can do it yourself. Laying hardwood or ceramic can be very complicated to the rookie installer. And finally the cost of laminate compared to ceramic and hardwood is much more affordable, so this is perfect for individuals and families working with a budget.
Mannington is a world class competitor boasting many awards for design, optimal performance ratings, and environmentally sound products.
