Laminate floors hold up well to daily wear and tear

Laminate floors are strong and durable, and they hold up well to spills and dropped items. Floors resist scratches, scuffs, and stains, and they do not harbor dirt, allergens, or pet dander. They are easy to clean and maintain. Carpet Barn is a laminate retailer in Spokane, Washington. We also offer laminate in Spokane Valley at a second store. Both of our customer-friendly showrooms are spacious and inviting. If you prefer the added convenience of shopping from the comfort of your home, you can contact us about our shop at home service.

Wood composition

Laminate provides a hardwood or tile look at a lower cost than natural materials. Wood and stone designs can be created in many styles, textures, and colors with high tech 3D printing technology. Laminate is a wood product that is constructed in layers that are bonded together. The core is usually composed of medium-density fiberboard, and the design layer that is above the core is protected by a wear layer. The durability of laminate flooring is measured with an abrasion rating system. An Abrasion Criteria rating of AC3 is suitable for heavy residential use. Laminate flooring is child-and pet-friendly. It typically comes with a 5-10 year warranty.


Typically, laminate flooring does not need to be glued down. Instead, flooring fits together in tongue and groove fashion to create a floor that floats above the subfloor. This helps with the longevity of the floor since it can be repaired, if damaged, by replacing individual planks or tiles. Laminate can be installed over concrete, wood, and some existing flooring. Waterproof brands can be placed in spaces that are less than ideal for wood products. Be aware that warranties often guarantee that flooring will not be damaged by water during a specific period, often 30 hours. In other words, it is better to clean up the water or a spill immediately, if possible.
