Here are some things to consider when considering laminate tile flooring.
1. Durability: Laminate is made from pressed wood with a highly digitized image over it, then topped with a clear plastic protective wear layer. This makes it scratch-resistant and easy to clean. It’s also s great choice if anyone in your family experiences allergies or asthma, because there’s no place for dust mites or other allergens to hide--when you sweep or dust, they get removed. It is resistant to light moisture, but laminate tile flooring isn’t 100 percent impervious to water, like the real thing is so it probably won’t stand up to puddles. When you clean, be sure the mop is only damp, as excess water can warp it.
2. Budget: This is obvious. Since the materials used to manufacture laminate tile flooring are less expensive, you’ll pay less for this material, as opposed to tile.
3. Repair & Replacement: If you buy laminate in tile or plank form and if it snaps together, you can probably replace pieces, because it doesn’t repair well. However, it’s a good idea to buy extra pieces when you purchase your flooring, and keep it out of the sun, to be sure it matches properly.
