Laminate flooring consists of a resin and paper surface applied to a denser wooden or fiberboard material. The hard resin surface makes it durable for interior applications and it is fairly easy to install. Similar in appearance to whatever surface one wishes to emulate, Laminate flooring is usually made to look like hardwood, including exotic and expensive types, but is also available with stone or tile finishes. Laminate is often installed as a floating floor, and works well with acoustic underlay. Some Laminates even have foam underlay as part of their structure.
