Homeowners Benefit from Laminate Flooring
If you enjoy the aesthetic of natural stone, hardwood planks, and ceramic tile, but would rather have flooring that's less expensive and easier to maintain, laminate flooring is a perfect choice. Laminate flooring is a realistic, long-lasting alternative to natural materials like stone and solid wood. Our customers can choose from a variety of laminate designs, colors, and sizes at My Dad's Flooring America in Douglassville, PA.
Our laminate inventory has never looked more stunning and lifelike with digitally enhanced imaging for the ornamental layer of each plank, thanks to recent advances in the laminate manufacturing process. Our laminate tiles also accurately replicate the dazzling brilliance of marble or porcelain. Laminate floors, with their enhanced imaging, are a high-end flooring option that adds beauty and appeal to any home, regardless of their décor or age.
Laminate is comprised of several layers that begin with a clear protective coating, followed by a realistic decorative layer and a durable core, finalized with a solid resin backing. This flooring is resistant to dampness, scratches, and heavy-impact objects, as it wears well in high-traffic areas.

Simply sweeping away dust and debris in addition to damp mopping with a laminate cleaning agent is all that is required. With this simple cleaning routine, you can say goodbye to the stress of numerous products and polishes. Before using a cleaning solution that contains harsh chemicals, be sure to check your warranty or touch base with an in-store associate who can provide a recommendation.
Tile is also a timeless classic when it comes to flooring for kitchens and bathrooms. With laminate flooring, you can enjoy the streamlined elegance of tile at a lower cost. Plus, tile-look laminate is sturdy and long-lasting, and it won't crack or break if you drop something heavy or sharp on it. Our laminate is highly water-resistant and serves as a great alternative to stone, ceramic, or porcelain flooring.
Laminate Types Explained
Laminate flooring is made using a direct or high-pressure technique to provide charm and longevity for your home. Individual layers are fused using a high-pressure method for added density. This is a common strategy for businesses that foresee a high volume of foot traffic. The direct-pressure method, on the other hand, produces typical laminate options for homes and public areas.
Laminate flooring is distinguishable from other types of flooring by the four layers that make up the final product. The initial layers to be laid are the base and core layers, which provide density for withstanding foot traffic and placement over the subfloor. Any replica image can then be put to the ornamental layer utilizing modern technologies. Finally, the wear layer guards against stains and damage to the picture as well as the rest of the floor. Choose from a range of textures, such as enhanced wood grain and embossed register, or browse our unique styles, such as:
- Ash Grove Oak
- Juno Oak
- Mountain Lane Oak
- Rend Lake Oak
- Valley Vista
- Yarlington Maple
