Revwood — a revolutionary approach: laminate flooring info

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.

Floating floor installation

Most laminate flooring is designed to attach to themselves and not directly to your subfloor. This gives an additional level of flexibility as to where these floors are installed in your home. They can be installed directly over your wood subfloor, and also over concrete slabs in the basement. Trim molding secures them in place in the room while also giving them a little bit of space to expand and contract due to changes in air temperature and humidity — no bowing and no buckling. And they won’t sting your pocketbook.

Shades of grey?

Grey is not merely a color in today’s world, it is a statement of personality and design. We have multiple options in grey laminate flooring that include both the wood and the stone looks.
