Why Europe you ask? Since laminate flooring can be installed over many types of
existing floors it has made it a natural for old European buildings.
But more and more Americans are becoming familiar with laminate flooring because
they have been aware of laminate countertops for years.
By using the countertop technology and adding considerably more resin to the wear

stain or scratch.
And here’s something you might find interesting. Laminate floors are never
secured directly to the subfloor, instead they are floated over the subfloor.
This allows laminate flooring to be used over a wide variety of subfloors, including
wooden subfloors, existing floors and even concrete slabs.

floor coverings in the United States.
