Will laminate flooring perform well in the hallway?

Will laminate flooring perform well in the hallway?

Yes, it will! One of the great benefits of laminate flooring is that it's so durable and scratch-and-fade resistant.

Laminate is an excellent alternative to genuine wood. Many color and style options and textured looks make an ideal, affordable first impression for your home.

Choosing the right one for your installation

All laminates have different levels of strength.

Look at the AC (Abrasion Criteria) Rating. It's a one-to-five system that determines a product's strength.  

Each product is put through a series of grueling tests that measure the product’s resistance to dents. The failure of just one test knocks the number down a notch! 

The best laminate flooring for residential use is AC-3 or AC-4. 

Consider laminate thickness

While it comes in a range of thicknesses, the best is 8 mm and up. A more robust surface is quieter, lasts longer, and provides more design options.

Are you worried about people tracking in moisture or rain?

There are two things you can do. First, lay the welcome mats so people can wipe their feet before entering.

Or, get the new waterproof version. Original laminate is constructed of wood byproducts. As a result, it is often avoided for installation in places with moisture challenges.

This new version has a non-wood construction. Waterproof laminate flooring is ideal for any space in the home. It eliminates concerns about soaking, staining, peeling, and rippling.
