Use this CSI 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify laminate flooring in plank form for interior use.
Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused in a lamination process that simulates wood or stone by using a photographic layer under a clear protective layer.
The inner core is usually melamine resin or fiberboard. Most often available in plank form and in various colors, patterns, and textures.
There are hundreds of laminate options, and it is recommended you consult a reputable flooring manufacturer to determine the best product for a specific project.
Because of its durability, ease of installation, and maintenance, laminate flooring is now one of the most popular types of flooring available today.
Ideal for installations over existing hardwood, tile, or concrete floors, laminates are an attractive option for projects without a budget for removing and replacing an old flooring system.
In addition, laminate floors are moisture-resistant and don’t require special cleaning products or maintenance procedures.
Laminate floors are ideal for high-traffic areas and spaces with heavy foot traffic. They are also fade-resistant, durable, and resistant to scratches and water damage.
Long-term maintenance of laminate floors is relatively easy. The occasional use of an all-purpose cleaner will help remove sticky residue and dirt accumulating over time.
