What to know about laminate flooring lifespan

Depending on the quality of both product and installation, your laminate flooring can last up to 30 years. But, of course, the better the quality and level of care, the longer it will last.

Buy the best your wallet will allow

Laminate flooring
comes in a range of thicknesses up to 12 mm. Keep in mind, however, that a thicker plank is easier to install, quieter, and has more design options.

It's easier to carve on a thicker surface than a thinner one!

Other indications of quality

It's not just about thickness. Also, look at the design image; images should be created digitally, so they're clear and vibrant. The best laminate flooring also has depth, dimension, and textured looks.

Here, little dents are created by embossing; they exactly replicate the grains in the photograph.
Other textures include brushed, hand-scraped, and distressed.

How to choose the right product for your needs

The AC Rating (Abrasion Criteria) is a one to five/six rating system that determines strength. Therefore, as the numbers increase, so does the strength.

The most commonly chosen is AC-3 since it is appropriate for most floors. However, if you are installing in a heavy foot-trafficked area or have kids or pets, consider selecting AC-4.
