Your temptation may be to say, “Yes, I know what laminate floors are,” but if you take a look, you might be surprised by what you see. At Mendel Carpet and Flooring, we offer a line of Mohawk laminate floors
that have been redesigned — so much so that they are redefining the laminate industry. With a layer of hardwood on top of high-density fiberboard (HDF) backing, these floors perform like a laminate yet have the look and texture of hardwood. They are really in a class all of their own. It’s the kind of thing you will want to see for yourself.
Revwood is a cross between a laminate and an engineered hardwood. Normally, laminates have a facsimile of hardwood (or stone) on the surface and are backed with a medium or high-density fiberboard. This creates an incredibly sturdy and durable floor that can pretty much look like any wood or stone product that is available, all in a more modest price range. Engineered hardwood is a thin layer of hardwood mounted on a plywood backing. These are quite durable, but thicker, much closer to that of solid hardwood.
Revwood does a little of each. These use the same sort of HDF backing as does laminate wood flooring, but instead of a picture of the wood floor on top, there is a thin layer of the actual wood. In every way, the top is hardwood but it is capable of being used as one might use a laminate floor.
