Laminate flooring was invented in the 70s by a Swedish company called Perstop. It was under the brand name Pergo. It was marketed in the 80s and it came to the US in the mid-90s. Pergo later became the flooring division of Perstop. Laminate flooring is a multilayered flooring product. It is considered a hybrid since synthetic product is fused together with a lamination process.

This type of tiling replicates hardwood or stone, but it is clearly not made out of it. The inner layer of the tile is made of fiber board and melamine resin. A lot of people like laminate flooring, but along with its multiple plus points there are a few negatives as well. Here are a few pros and cons of laminate flooring:

Pros-

  • Majority of people like laminate flooring because it is very easy to install. Several hundred square feet of ground space can be installed within a couple of days.
  • Compared to other floor tiling, laminate flooring is very easy to clean.
  • Laminate flooring is impervious to scratches and dent compared to other forms of flooring. There are companies which offer warranties of more than a decade for this kind of flooring. It is known as a “wear layer” in the industry which enables it to protect the photographic layer which is situated underneath.
  • It is a very tough form of flooring, which is also stain resistant. Even if there are stains, it is easy to just clean it up with a mop.

  • Tile flooring is considered one of the most popular forms of flooring today. There are a lot of reasons why tile flooring is so popular, but there are a few drawbacks as well. The following are the pros and cons of tile flooring:
