laminate flooring

How does Mannington Diamond Bay Collection compare to other types of laminate regarding scratch resistance &, water damage, and does the company fare with respect to warranty issues?

laminate flooring

Before buying anything also concider laying engineered flooring instead.
It's real wood, can be refinished, super tough finish coat on top, installs almost the same way.
Looks like real wood, not plastic, no hollow sound when you walk on it.
Will add value to the home, not lower it like laminite will.

laminate flooring

Mannington is one of the more reliable brands out there for Laminate.
They are designed to be dent resistant and scratching as well although there are limits.
Over all it's better then P&S and vinyl but not as engineered hard wood.
Most people choose lam because it's a cheap alternative to hardwood.
