We offer floorings from countless brands and of a variety of materials so that no matter what your situation is, you can find the most durable flooring to fit it.


Has laminate flooring caught your eye? It’s a great choice. It can give the look of hardwood flooring without the price tag, and its partial particleboard construction gives it some resistance against moisture-related damage. But just how durable is laminate flooring? As vendors of everything from waterproof flooring to prefinished hardwood flooring, we weigh in below.

Modern Laminate Flooring is Both Tough and Strong

Much like older makes of vinyl flooring, laminate used to be considered flooring for bargain-hunters. However, in this modern-day and age, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Thanks to years of innovation, laminate flooring has become stronger and tougher than ever before, which makes it a viable flooring option for households of all income levels. Brands like Quickstep can be luxe-looking, imitate solid hardwood flooring, while also bearing warranties as a testament to their strength.


Laminate flooring is:


  • Resistant to scratches |Because of the clear coating that protects its printed image and particleboard, it can be said that laminate resists scratching and gouging. Indeed, with proper maintenance, your laminate will stand up to every physically damaging force the typical household throws at it, from shoe scuffs to dog paws.
  • Pet-friendly | Some of our Quickstep makes come with a guarantee that the product will resist damage from certain kinds of pet accidents. However, not all laminate flooring brands come with such a warranty, so make sure to order from E Hardwoods & Flooring to ensure your laminate and pets can coexist for years to come.
  • Moisture-resistant | Despite its partial wood composition, laminate flooring can be surprisingly resistant to moisture damage when the spill is promptly attended to. Certain brands, like Quickstep, even cover water damage on their warranties. Couple this with the fact that laminate flooring is easy to clean, and you’ve got a floor that can stay looking sharp for years after installation.
