How Long Does Laminate Flooring Last?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: March, 2020 - Modified: March, 2023

Upgrading your flooring is a process and an investment. Likely a great deal of time and research goes into selecting the perfect floor for a given space. You want to find the right color, design, and material to create the look you’re going for. Because of the time and financial investment involved in such a process, you want to select a flooring option that will last without the need to repair or refinish it.

A popular choice for many people is a laminate floor. It can be more durable than traditional wood or tile in certain situations, and it is resistant to scratches, damage from moisture and wear and tear, and is relatively easy to keep clean. It is also simple to install, and it can often be done without professional help. Greatmats has a number of quality laminate flooring options that are beautifully designed and made to last, with options that look like everything from traditional wood floors to those that look like ceramic tile. 


Cork Laminate Floor - How long does it last?
Longevity: 3 Year Warranty, but it will last for many years if taken care of properly

Although not all laminate flooring options are waterproof, cork laminate flooring features water resistant technology. 

This flooring option is appealing to some, as it has a softer, more shock absorbent surface than other options, preventing sore legs, feet, joints, and back. It is also very affordable and durable. 

If taking care of the environment is important to you, this laminate flooring option will appeal to you, as it is made using sustainable methods. There are several colors and designs available, and it is constructed using the highest technology in preventing surface abrasions, scuffs, and scratches. The surface also prevents dirt, dust, germs, and mold from getting trapped. It also features excellent thermal insulating properties. 

This laminate flooring works well in commercial and residential settings and comes with a 3 year warranty. Our cork flooring withstands years of wear and still looks as good as the day it was first laid. This is a result of the unique structure of cork and the extremely resilient surface finish.


Laminate Raised Tile Flooring - How long does it last?
Longevity: 5 Year Warranty, 7 Year Commercial and 15 Year Home Wear Layers

Max Tile Raised Floor Tile is an option that would make a great laminate flooring option for a home or office setting. 

It has a beautiful, commercial grade vinyl surface that creates the look of a shiny hardwood or slate floor without the need to ever be refinished. 

These raised floor tiles combine performance and durability and allow and air to flow underneath. This can help avoid the growth of mildew and mold when and if water is present - such as in a basement setting, and provide a thermal insulative benefit due to the air pocket beneath the vinyl surface. 

For an extra layer of cushioned comfort, a 3 mm thick rubber floor underlayment can be added - which also offers sound buffering and additional insulative qualities. 

If longevity and durability are among your top priorities when choosing a laminate flooring option, this is an excellent choice. When used in a home setting, this laminate flooring's wear layer is rated for 15 years. When used in commercial applications, the wear layer thickness is rated for 7 years. Additionally, the tiles come with a 5-year warranty.
