In a general aspect laminate flooring can last anywhere from 10-25 years. All laminate flooring manufacturers have different warranties, as well as durability for their products.

Keep in mind laminate is still one of the best values for your money, and with some research on your end, typically the worry of the floors lifespan floats to the back of your mind.
The suggested information you'll want to know before purchasing your laminate flooring is:
- Foot Traffic - How much foot traffic will there be in your home, knowing this will help you determine what type of durability is needed for the flooring.
