When choosing a new floor covering for your home, you may wonder if laminate flooring is still a viable option. While there are a great many flooring materials available, laminate is still a very feasible choice for many rooms. This is especially the case if you want the look of real wood, but you’re working with a budget that won’t allow for the real thing.
It’s very important to make sure that you choose the right laminate for the particular rooms you’re looking to cover. It can be placed over radiant heat, and it’s fine to install it at grade, or even below grade, as long as the right type for the job is chosen.

Knowing which laminate is best for your needs can go a long way in making sure that you won’t have to replace your floors prematurely. The Abrasion Class rating can help determine which one you need specifically.
- AC1 Moderate Residential –best used in closets and bedrooms where the lightest amounts of traffic will be possible.
- AC2 General Residential –best for livings rooms and dining areas, where only moderate amounts of traffic are expected.
- AC3 Heavy Residential –can withstand the highest amount of residential traffic
Ratings of AC4 and AC5 are primarily used for extremely high traffic commercial areas, such as cafes, government buildings and department stores.
