Laminate was originally positioned as an alternative for hardwood. Although when first introduced there was no mistaking the difference, today’s technology has made laminate look more realistic than ever before. Our selection of laminates will surprise you as to how close they resemble hardwood & tile floors.
Laminate vs Hardwood Flooring
Laminate flooring is the budget sensitive alternative to hardwood or stone flooring. Since laminate is made with man-made products, it is 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, but it still cannot replace the beauty and feel of hardwood floors. 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 come in a floating floor system and are never glued down. A benefit of floating floors is that it is easier to replace if you change your flooring as compared to a glued down product which can require a lot of labor. If you're considering putting down a hard surface for temporary use whether it be laminate or hardwood, consider a floating installation.
Laminate flooring requires very little maintenance. 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.
