While   installing this flooring, a thick wear layer is made, which prevents the   damage of wood from physical wear and tear. This floor has higher density   than natural wood, making it stronger and better to use. This flooring can be   directly glued on tile flooring or stone flooring. This saves the expenditure   of demolishing the existing flooring. The only condition is the base should   be flat.
