TYPES OF LAMINATE

GLUELESS LAMINATE TYPE

These blocks do not have glues and you have to get the right method of fixing to the floor. They are easy to install and are indeed the largest in numbers that you will find in the market. The models are available in varying ceramics and even wood designs. Manufacturers have also gone tech with production and now offer hardwood veneer and not just printed types. You might not make the difference with true hardwood. The designs are in planks or tiles depending on what designs you prefer.

LAMINATE FLOORING WITH ATTACHED UNDERLAY

Unlike the glueless types, this model comes with tongues and special grooves that are interlocking for easier fixing. You can create special patterns with this type of laminate. Interior designers advise people who want to bring down noise levels in the rooms. It is important that you make sure to have the right underneath laminate plants or a plastic underlay so that they serve the intended purpose.

GLUE LAMINATE MODEL

The shapes of these types are just like in glueless model. However, their fixing requires you to use to get special formulated type of glue and apply it at the grooves to stick together. Once the attachment glue has dried completely, removing them is almost impossible. It is important to make sure that the area underneath each tile or plant is carefully sealed and no air is trapped to avoid breakages and need for repairs immediately after installation.

PRE-GLUED TYPE OF LAMINATE FLOORING

Manufacturers have increasingly sought to make the work of homeowners easier and engaging them in promoting cost reduction. With pre-glued laminate type, the grooves and tongues already have glue applied to them such that they are easier to install. With special instructions, you can indeed install these types of laminate. You will however need a plastic underneath so that you can seal them from moisture and reduce the chances of substrate sticking with glue.
