The Mohawk Rare Vintage collection of laminate flooring features heavily textured chestnuts and rustic oaks with the appearance of reclaimed hardwood. Planks are 7 ½ inches wide and 12 mm thick and feature the company’s ArmorMax Finish to resist staining and abrasion, and Uniclic, a glue-less locking system that makes installation quick and easy and allows floors to be used immediately.
So what exactly is laminate flooring and what makes it the best choice for you? A laminate floor is a composite product that consists of several different layers fused together. Generally speaking there are four or five layers: the first top layer is a transparent wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and liquids; next is a decorative 3D photographic layer that reproduces the authentic product; the middle core layer is the thickest and is made of high-density fiberboard (HDF); finally the base of the floor is sealed with a melamine resin layer which adds stability and moisture resistance.
Mohawk Rare Vintage is durable,scratch and stain resistant – only the best quality laminates offer heavy wear layers that make the flooring very durable and resistant to scratches, dents and stains. More than hardwood, that can dent more easily.
Install Mohawk Rare Vintage everywhere, even with under floor heating. Because it’s durable, Rare Vintage laminates are great for high traffic areas and can even be installed in wetter areas like bathrooms. Beware though that laminates – just like hardwood – are not waterproof and will not fare well if water is left to sit on them. Mohawk recommends wiping up wet spills right away and to not let liquids get between the joints. Under floor heating systems specifically designed to be used with laminate flooring are widely available; but double check with your floor manufacturer as to suitability.
To summarize, Mohawk Rare Vintage laminate flooring will has a thick, hard wearing protective top layer, has several inner core layers for maximum structural stability, and the quality UniClic glueless locking system for a quick and easy floating floor installation.
