Laminate flooring has become a popular choice, and it’s easy to see why: it can perfectly match the aesthetics, durability and even texture of more expensive selections (such as hardwood and tile & stone), yet often costs much less. However, there are a few other reasons for laminate’s popularity. Newer technologies continue to make laminate a more practical and stylish choice, and at the forefront of these innovations is the new laminate coreboard technology. Here, we’ll take a quick look at a few reasons to consider laminate coreboard flooring.


Laminate coreboard has benefited from another flooring innovation: glueless locking systems. This technique simplifies installation, reduces the materials needed and is available on many laminate coreboard selections. Even better, glueless installation systems such as the 3L TripleLock do not require any special tools, making it a great project for DIY enthusiasts.

Moisture Resistance

Laminate flooring continues to gain popularity as more selections offer moisture resistance or even a completely waterproof design. Laminate coreboard excels at this. In fact, when implementing the glueless locking installation system, laminate coreboard prevents spills from soaking into the flooring itself as well as the subfloor below. For maximum moisture resistance, look for the REPEL Waterproof Technology label.


Even the most active Klamath Falls families will love the durability of laminate coreboard! Its layered design maintains stability and prevents warping for many years to come. In fact, manufacturer warranties often extend for decades or even a lifetime.


Another reason for laminate’s popularity: the many trending styles to choose from. In fact, modern design processes allow laminate coreboard flooring to perfectly match the look and even texture of traditional selections. Even better, unique color combinations are often included that would require significant modifications with natural materials (thereby raising the price). Yet, it’s available at a lower price and often performs better.


Manufacturing waste is significantly reduced (and sometimes even eliminated) with laminate coreboard. Each plank is built from leftover wood fibers that would otherwise get discarded and sent to a landfill.
