Resista® Laminate Floors: Is It Hardwood? No, It’s Even Better.

ProSource | 8/18/2015 | Product Information

When it comes to flooring with the look and feel of a quality hardwood floor, the old adage of “if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck” doesn’t always hold true. Especially when the flooring is Resista laminate flooring offered exclusively at ProSource Wholesale® showrooms.

Resista laminate offers six style options and 24 colors, each with the look and finish of real hardwood. But a closer examination reveals much more. Starting with the durability, and stain and moisture resistance of quality laminate flooring.

In fact, Resista touts that its products repel stains and topical moisture “like water off a duck’s back.” Something you won’t always find with a hardwood floor.

In addition to protecting against stains and moisture, Resista laminate flooring resists scratches and gouges. This translates to an easy-care, kid- and pet-friendly floor – and a more durable choice than hardwood for high-traffic areas like foyers, kitchens and basements.

Resista products even come with a 50-year warranty. Why? Because they’re made to last.

The quality construction of Resista laminate flooring not only makes it more durable; it also makes it safer than other laminate products. Cheaper laminate contains higher levels of formaldehyde, a known human carcinogen, in the resins used to bind their materials.

Resista products, however, are made to be California Phase 2 CARB Compliant, which means that they’re made according to the one of the most stringent guidelines for formaldehyde gas emissions from composite wood products. And lower emissions means healthier homes.

Resista laminate flooring requires no chemicals to install. So you don’t have to deal with glues, grout or mess. There’s also no down time waiting for the floor to dry or settle. Once the floor is installed, you can move the furniture back in - all in the same day.

While you’re admiring the fabulous look of your finished floor, you’ll surely also marvel at how little you paid to get it. With Resista laminate, you can often achieve the same appearance of a high-quality hardwood at a fraction of the cost.

With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why Resista laminate flooring is a top pick of homeowners and contractors alike. Because certainly, there’s more to it than meets the eye.
