Laminate was originally offered as an alternative for hardwood. When first introduced there was no mistaking the difference, but today’s technology has made laminate look more realistic than ever before. Our selection of laminates will surprise you with how much they resemble hardwood & tile floors.
Laminate vs. Hardwood Flooring
Laminate flooring is the budget–friendly alternative to hardwood or stone flooring. Laminate is made with man-made products making it significantly less expensive than hardwood or stone. Dents and scratches are less likely to occur in laminated floors compared to hardwood and unlike hardwood, laminate floors do not need to be refinished.
Laminate manufacturers have seen significant advances in digital printing technology which makes laminate look as real as wood. Laminate floors are less expensive in both material and labor costs as opposed to hardwood. Therefore, if price is a major issue, laminate should be considered.
Laminate floors are available in a floating floor system and do not have to be glued down. A benefit of floating floors is that it is easier to replace if you would like to change your flooring in the future, as compared to a glued down product which can require a lot of labor. Floating floors are fast and easy to install, and you can walk on them the same day.
Laminate flooring requires very little maintenance compared to hardwood flooring. Regular sweeping and vacuuming are the best ways of taking care of laminate floors. Spills should be wiped up immediately and occasional mopping with manufacturer approved products is recommended.
