Laminate wood is an excellent option for flooring in your home or office. Laminate has a rating system, with AC5 typically being your most durable down to AC1, which isn't very durable. Most laminates are AC3; to be considered commercial, they must be AC4 or higher.
Here is a chart:
- AC1—moderate residential use (like bedrooms and closets)
- AC2—general residential use (like living rooms and kitchens)
- AC3—heavy residential use or moderate commercial traffic
- AC4—general commercial traffic
- AC5—heavy commercial applications
Laminate wood styles, colors, and looks are excellent now and tend to look like natural hardwood floors visually. They are typically one of the easier types of flooring to install, so if you like being a "DIY" person, this might be a good floor for you.
Like most floors with wood, long-term water will not be laminate wood's friend, although more and more are getting water-resistant to normal everyday life from 48-72 hours.
Laminate wood can be harder to dent than real hardwood or luxury vinyl planking. If you have a large dog, a nice laminate wood might be the best flooring for you.
