Going Green? Go with a Laminate Floor!

These NALFA certified laminate floors are an excellent choice for homeowners going green. Laminate flooring is constructed with materials bonded together through a unique lamination process. High-definition photography is used to create the visual layer that we see. Therefore, the natural resource that is represented by the photography is saved. Less hardwood is consumed. These floors comply with California Air Resources Board (CARB) sections 93120-93120.12, title 17, of the California Code of Regulations

Plus, according to The North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA). "Laminate flooring is inherently eco-friendly. It’s made with natural resources, it’s recyclable, and it’s free of air-damaging chemicals"

Hyper-Realistic Look

Just like the phone in your pocket that has changed dramatically over the years, so has the look of laminate flooring. With new technological advances in high definition digital printing and with advanced texturing techniques that follow the relief and the grain of the wood pattern, today’s high-end laminate floors are amazing. Signature Technology by Mohawk captures natural designs by scanning, cataloging and preserving the extraordinary detail and variety common to each wood species. By incorporating 64 layers of design data and 1,000 colors in every square inch into each plank, Mohawk achieves a wood floor that is, according to them "indistinguishable from natural hardwood".


  • Laminate flooring consists of components that are bonded together:
  • A transparent, protective wear layer that is extremely durable and resistant to stains, fading, burns and abrasive wear
  • The decorative layer provides a high definition, highly detailed image complete with texture, grain and edge details
  • A high-density fiberboard core (or HDF) offers impact resistance, stability and long-lasting durability.
  • A layer comprised of melamine resin as balancing backing is bonded to the underside of the core

Simplified Installation, Easy to DIY

UNICLIC was the first floor with a click system that was milled directly in the core material of the flooring planks. Since 1996, the Patented UNICLIC locking system has proven itself as arguably the easiest, least problematic and most trusted way to put together flooring without nails or glue. The Uniclic locking system enables you to engage the flooring panels via two methods - angling and snapping. This fact makes Uniclic one of the easiest locking mechanisms for do-it-yourself flooring installations. It's our favorite and the majority of the flooring on our website features UNICLIC.
