Unlike wood, which can dent, laminate flooring is almost impervious to dents and scratches. Laminate flooring has a wear layer that protects the visual layer from damage or scuffing. Laminate flooring’s tough surface resists stains. Some laminates are engineered with an enhanced water resistance core.
Trinity Flooring offers a wide variety of laminate flooring products from the top brands in the industry, including Mohawk, Quick-Step, Evoke (Metropolitan), Wanke Cascade/Cascade Laminate, and many more. We offer personalized service and free in-home measurements and design consultations. Stop by our showroom today or give our flooring design consultant a call at (503) 667-2200.

Featured Laminate Manufacturers/Brands
Our showroom features laminate from top quality manufacturers including:
Our laminate styles are extraordinary. They are produced using very dense premium HDF core-board. We apply EIR (embossed in-register) technology on most of our visuals to add realistic visuals. The edges are waxed to reduce water damage caused by water seeping through the top of the floor.
Evoke laminates are rich in character: some down to earth, some with sophisticated polish. Whether your tastes are modern or vintage, you’ll click with one of these characters. Evoke’s laminate collection includes Homestead, Au Naturel, Heritage, Wide Plank, and Promenade.
Cascade Laminate (Wanke Cascade)
Cascade Laminate combines the look of natural hardwood flooring and the quality of European laminate to lend stunning wood grain visuals and realistic colors. The realistic nature of Cascade Laminate allows you to enjoy the beauty of the natural hardwoods without the concern for indentation and high maintenance associated with real hardwoods. So no matter your tastes or the current design trends, you’ll always be able to find the flooring right for you with our high style flooring options.
Laminate Flooring Buying Tips
- Laminate flooring is between 6-12mm thick. If you find thicker than 12mm, it’s an inaccurate measurement or possibly the thickness specification includes the attached padding.
- If you want the highest-quality, hardwood feel, you’ll want 10 or 12mm.
- If cost is a concern and you have a smooth subfloor, you can get by with 7 or 8mm.
Laminate Texture and Finish Options
- Handscraped | Makes the wood look aged and rustic, similar to handscraped hardwood.
- Embossed in Register (EIR) | Primarily seen with laminate floors to give them shallower or deeper heights that follow the wood grain or tile patterns, giving the illusion of a real piece of wood or stone tile, as well as a more tactile feel.
- Embossed | Similar to EIR but does not follow a specific pattern; it simply makes the floor feel more textured.
- Distressed | Similar to a handscraped visual, but a distressed texture shows more cracks and chatter lines.
- Matte | Semi-gloss finish.
- High Gloss | Smooth, shiny finish, mainly used in laminate flooring to give it the look and feel of finished hardwood surfaces that have been finished.
- French Bleed | Dark appearance at the laminate plank’s edge that gives it a more beveled, aged or thick look.
