Laminate flooring is made from HDF which is topped with an ultra-realistic photo and protected by a wear layer. This wear layer is incredibly strong, making laminate flooring very hard to scratch, dent or stain. Because of this, it should last you for years with no problems.
However, because of the precise quality of the wear layer, it is not possible to refinish laminate flooring. If laminate boards suffer serious damage it may be possible to replace a section of the floor, but this does depend on how the floor was installed.
For this reason, it is very important to follow our care guidelines found here Laminate Maintenance to understand how best to look after your floor for years to come.
