How is Hybrid Flooring Made?
Hybrid flooring is made by pressing multiple materials together such as wood flour, plastic and limestone. These are compressed tightly to create a superior quality, wood-look flooring, that’s extremely durable. Hybrid floors generally consist of four layers, such as:
- Protective layer. This part is specially treated to be scratch and stain resistant.
- Decorative layer. This is the colour and design across the floor that mimics natural wood.
- Mid stability layer. This makes the flooring waterproof and resistant to changes in temperature.
- Underlay barrier layer. Usually made of cork or rubber, this layer helps to insulate heat and dampen sound.
What Are the Benefits of Hybrid Flooring?
Hybrid flooring offers many benefits, making it capable to withstand hardcore usage. Here are a few of the main advantages:
Utilising vinyl and laminate qualities, hybrid flooring is completely waterproof, so it’s ideal for wet rooms such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.
Durable and Hard Wearing
No need to worry about high amounts of foot traffic and dirty pets. Hybrid flooring is designed to resist scratches and indents and stand the test of time.
Timber Look Without the Price Tag
Hybrid flooring has an innovative decorative layer that looks like real wood, without having to pay the high price.
Can Withstand Rapid Temperature Changes
Traditional vinyl flooring is susceptible to temperature changes that can cause swelling and unsightly lumps. Hybrid flooring was designed to combat this and will not warp in extreme temperatures.
Easy to Install and Clean
Hybrid flooring offers a beautiful wood look, without the costly maintenance of polishing and staining. A weekly sweep and mop should do the trick to keep it looking good.
