How many years does a Laminate Flooring last?
With proper installation and maintenance, your laminate would last anywhere between 15-25 years. Several factors such as foot traffic, accidental spills and animals should be taken into account in your laminate floor lifetime estimation.

Laminate flooring is extremely versatile. It can be installed over different materials such as wood or concrete subfloors.
