What is Composite Flooring?

Composite flooring is the best choice for floors with very high traffic, like offices or hotels, though it can also be used in domestic environments.

Composite flooring mainly refers to a composition that is quite rigid than traditional vinyl as the core is made from stabilizers and limestone.

What is Composite Flooring

Different Layers of Composite Flooring

Though its ranges mainly depend on the manufacturer, the Composite planks are normally made from the following layers:

  • Wear layer – This layer restores authentic color & embossing, thus giving protection from abrasion.
  • UV layer – It ensures waterproof performance, stain-resistance, and also prevents fading.
  • Core – Highly durable rigid plank core that does not expand or contract with shifts in humidity or temperature
  • Bottom layer – Can be foam or cork backing material, which gives cushioning for comfortable under footing.
  • Decorative layer – It is a printed wood-looking style.

Benefits of Composite Flooring

The Composite flooring is commonly installed with the click style system, which is very quick to install compared to the traditional tiles – thus making it a favorite choice for DIY homeowners. No nails or glue are needed to install, just cut to size & click in place. Though it lacks durability than traditional tiles, the speed of the installation drives down labour costs hence it makes an amazing flooring choice.

Great insulation and soundproofing capabilities

Stain-resistant and waterproof
