: I know next to nothing regarding wood flooring.
: Saw the term: "laminate flooring".
: What is laminate flooring ?
: Is it "better" than "solid" wood types of flooring ?
: Pros and cons ?
: Much thanks,
Edwin's got it pretty screwed up. Laminated flooring is, uhh,
well, laminated flooring <g>. It's NOT plastic flooring.
Check out Lowes.com and Homedepot.com if you want to see some
descripts of their laminate flooring and the different kinds that
exist. IMO, Floating Laminate Flooring is a real godsend.
One definition of many:
Laminate Flooring - a hard surface flooring that incorporates a
melamine wearlayer, a print layer, an inner core material, and a
backing that are fused together to form a rectangular plank or
squares with an interlocking tongue and groove system. Mohawk
offers laminate floors that are beautiful replicas of real
hardwood and ceramic tile patterns.

are a couple of good sites about it, and there are many more in
case you like to roll your own searches. Those are just the first
hits at google.com
