Of course, these percentages can be significantly different based on the style of laminate flooring, as well as the types of wood flooring or tile flooring that they are compared to.
Laminate flooring is protected with a stain and wear-resistant top layer, similar to what is used on many countertop surfaces. It is resistant to most types of stains, and easy to clean.
While laminate flooring is not indestructible, it is extremely durable. It can withstand having plates or glass dropped on it without cracking. Most tile flooring would crack if a heavy object is dropped, but laminate flooring is more tolerant of such occurrences.
Laminate flooring can be installed on all types of subfloors. What this means is that laminate flooring can be installed over concrete, wood, or existing flooring. Because the laminate flooring is floated on top of the sub floor, it has many uses.
Laminate flooring does not require varnish or stain like wood flooring. Laminate flooring is also easier to clean than tile flooring, because it does not have the grooves and grout lines that tile flooring has. Most times, laminate flooring can be spot cleaned, and only occasionally does it need to be mopped with a damp mop and towel-dried.
