It snaps together, so it's a floating floor and again ribs the replicate tile and wood looks with it so kind of that rustic, barn, siding is really popular in hardwood today and again we're able to replicate that in in the laminate flooring. This is where I get a little bit confused. This is actually wood, but it's a laminate it's. What is it applied to? What is this? Actually, the wood attached to its a high-density core board, and then your paper and your ware layer is laminated. On top of that, so what you've created is a solid structure. It's not a true hardwood, but it's laminated together, which brings the name out, but it gives it a scratch.
Resistant stain resistant fade resistant finish, so it's very great to use in a foyer or a kitchen area where there's a lot of high-traffic. Ok, we get a lot of Sun coming in through our hallway. Is the Sun going to fade this like a traditional hardwood floor? Now that's a beauty of these products, as they won't fade at all their fade resistant and stain resistant, so they're great for that tape. Applications where normal some. I would oxidize a wood and it tends to fade it out yeah because a lot of people are going to doorways where they don't have. They have a lot of solid glass, you're gonna get a lot of UV here.
These are all beautiful. But what do you have over here on the floor? These are something a little bit. These almost look like plank flooring. They are - and these are some of the options we talked a little bit about this vinyl flooring actually looks like real wood yeah. It does again, it comes with a tongue and groove, so it actually can be clicked together and laid right over top of an existing more so you're getting a lot of older homes that have a high floor. Joist of the floors isn't perfectly leveled. These will be a little bit more forgiving compared to a laminar or hardwood, which is a little bit stiffer and won't take that contour, so you would just stagger the joints so that it looks like it's actually a lathe hardwood floor are better products today.
Have beveled edges so when they get stacked together we can sacker the joints and it gives it almost a solid plank effect. Okay, now I know a do it. Yourself can do this, but you really recommend that a quality installer does this a certified quality, installer and - and I think just makes sense to me because a lot of times I have not done these products in projects myself and it's the prep that you do beforehand. It's not just doing the install it's the prep to the flooring that you do absolutely just like the foundation of your home is the best thing when you build up its the floor, prepping in the foundation of the substrate.
