Laminate Flooring



When Mohawk's designers wanted to create beautiful floor coverings, nature inspired the laminate flooring. Carefully mimicked, Mohawk laminate flooring takes naturally occurring patterns and painstakingly replicates color tones and hues of seasons.


Rich oaks and hickories, warm maples and cherries, soft teaks and pines and rosewoods and walnuts — Mohawk laminate collections can charm and delight you as you browse through the flooring choices. And just wait till you see these hardwood replicas in your home.


For fans of stone and ceramic, one Mohawk laminate collection features tiles with beveled edges and the look of elegant stonework. And the appearance can be mixed, matched, interplayed and arranged to






create exactly the unique and personal home environment you want — all while staying within your budget


Multiple layers compose each laminate, deliberately varied to look and even feel like wood. In addition, reproducing the effects of centuries-old hand-working techniques creates timeless vintage appeal. And with today's technology, Mohawk laminate flooring can be top-finished for even greater endurance than the natural counterparts.

Nature-Inspired and Eco-Friendly



Since nature is Mohawk's quiet inspiration for our laminates, we've chosen to become industry leaders in giving back to the environment by ensuring more than 50% pre-consumer recycled content in all laminate products. Additionally, because laminates don't retain allergens or dust mites, they're beneficially hypoallergenic. And talk about easy-clean: no waxes, polishes,



gooey detergents or abrasive cleaners are ever needed. You just use plain tap water or Mohawk's FloorCare Essentials for ultra-simple maintenance.


Mohawk's unique patented glueless locking system help professionals — or even do-it-yourselfers — install laminates quickly



and easily in virtually any situation. (The wonderfully detailed instructions accompanying the flooring don't hurt either.)


They're backed by a lifetime structural warranty, and when used with the silentGUARD and moistureGUARD underlayment system, these floors carry a 25-year moisture warranty.


Types of Laminate



Laminate flooring has become a popular choice for many homeowners due to its ability to closely emulate today's most popular hard surfaces, especially hardwood planks and ceramic or stone tiles. Besides the great textures and designs, laminate flooring offers improved durability, easier maintenance and affordability compared to other types of hard surface floors. These floors are extremely resistant to wear, stains and sunlight fading. The beautifully rich textured finishes make these floors a great alternative for most areas in the home.


Having arrived from Europe over a decade ago, laminate flooring was inspired by countertop materials, only it's at least 20 times stronger. With a direct



pressure laminate surface it is virtually impossible for spills and scuffs to leave a mark. The clear surface layer protects the

pattern underneath and is highly resistant to cigarette burns and scratches from pets. Maintenance is quick and easy using a damp cloth or vacuum and most household cleaning chemicals will not harm a laminate floor. The surface is hygienic and is excellent for people suffering from allergies.



Specially engineered with layered construction, laminate flooring can be installed almost anywhere in the home, including over dry concrete slabs, wooden subfloors and many types of existing floor coverings. The low clearance space height means laminates are particularly suited



for renovation and restoring old houses where floor thicknesses can be a problem.

Laminate Consturction


Mohawk Laminate Flooring offers a wide selection of rich colors and designs in several different grades, including laminates with pre-attached underlayments to help deaden sound and keep the floor warmer and "embossed-in-register" designs in which the surface texture exactly matches the image texture for highly realistic look and feel of real hardwood, tile and stones styles.
