If we visit any DIY center or specialized store we can find hundreds of brands of laminate or floating floors. Deciding between them is not always easy and becomes very complex when we have no references. Not being able to distinguish whether a product was manufactured by a company where mistakes are frequent, or by one where attention is paid to details, is a problem.
In this list we come across laminate flooring manufacturers that have been competing in the market for many years. The first brands that were created based on good work and whose name supports them.
While choosing one of these brands does not insulate us from the possibility of buying a flawless, defective or low quality product, it is true that it can lessen the uncertainty about whether we are facing a bad or a good product.
