About Timber Laminate Flooring

Timber laminate is the term Austrailians commonly use for wood laminate flooring. Timber laminate mimics natural wood floors in appearance and feel, but can be a great deal less expensive than the genuine material. Laminate flooring is created by layers of manufactured materials covered with a photographic film of real wood planks.

Installation

installation of Timber laminate floor, just as with any laminate floor product, is quick and easy. The floating floor has interlocking planks which attach to themselves, rather than directly to the subfloor. Since you do not need to glue the planks to the subfloor or varnish the wood, you can use the floor immediately after installation with no drying time.
