Although laminate is man-made, it is still a very eco-friendly flooring option. It is constructed using recycled materials that are bonded together with extensive lamination techniques. Also, because of the way laminate can be installed, it can easily be reused. This installation method is called a “floating floor,” which means it can be placed over an existing floor or slab without affixing it directly to the ground via nails or glue. This way, your laminate flooring can be disassembled, moved, and reinstalled in another room or home with ease. Plus, properly maintained, a quality laminate floor can last for many, many years. It is durable and resistant to water, stains, and wear, making it a sustainable option that will continue to stand the test of time.
