What is Laminate Flooring made of?
- Andrew Uhacz
Laminate flooring is made of multi-layered synthetic unnatural materials pressed together through a laminated machine process. Laminate wood or stone floors are sometimes so realistic that they are hard to tell the difference between real hardwood and ceramic floors.
The inner core is a composite of melamine resin and fiber boards. Laminate floors have grown in popularity as a more affordable alternative to hardwood flooring and in addition to costing less, laminate is also easier to install which greatly reduces installation labor costs.

Because laminate floors are moisture resistant they can be used in areas where traditional hardwoods can’t such as a basement, laundry room or bathroom. Laminate flooring can mimic a variety of natural materials including wood, stone and ceramic. Armstrong laminate floor styles capture hot, trend-setting looks inspired by art, nature, fashion, and culture. Laminate also gives you to freedom to showcase your home’s true creativity.
Labor Cost to Install Laminate Flooring
Laminate can be installed by a novice or beginner installer but we do recommend getting a bid from a local professional if you have it in your budget. Typical installation labor costs can range from $2-$5 per square foot or more and floor materials can range from $2-$4 per sq. ft. for quality laminate flooring.
