About Laminate

What is Laminate?

Laminate is made from layers of resin-coated brown paper that are sandwiched together under high heat and pressure. The very top layer is a decorative (colored) paper that’s covered with a hard plastic overlay. The result is a hard, durable material that’s water resistant, easy to clean and relatively inexpensive.


Laminate countertops provide the look of stone or granite without breaking your bank.
