Here at Hereward carpets, we often get asked “Is laminate waterproof?” and up until recently we always said, “no – laminate flooring isn’t waterproof”. However, there is now a really impressive laminate by Quickstep that is actually called …… Impressive, and it has a ‘Hydroseal’ water repellent layer.

Modern Designs

It is not just the fact that this laminate flooring is waterproof, it comes in some truly life-like designs with realistic colours and textures to make it resemble real wood planks.

Have a look at our samples and you will see the textures immediately: ‘Impressive (Ultra)’ ‘Majestic’ floors are the most natural laminate floors ever made. The authentic character of the joints is in perfect balance with the design of the floor. The colour, design and structure extend right into the joint and create the feeling of real wood.;

It is available in 2 thicknesses of 8 or 12mm. The 12mm thickness is called Impressive Ultra and this thickness really gives the finished floor a real solid feel to it. It’s our thickest laminate ever!

Say goodbye to moisture problems. ‘Majestic’ and ‘Impressive (Ultra)’ laminate floors have an innovative, water-repellent ‘HydroSeal’ coating even in the grooves, so that water cannot penetrate. Cleaning has never been so easy and safe.

They have a showcase video so Click Here to have a look for yourself, or feel free to pop in and visit us where we have the full range of samples to see and even 2 display floors laid so you can really see it in the flesh.
