About Laminate Flooring
A reliable floor that’s used both residentially and commercially, there’s a lot to like about laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is pet-friendly, kid-friendly, and water-resistant. It’s highly affordable, yet boasts the convincing appearance of natural materials such as hardwood, stone, or tile.
Built in durable, synthetic layers, laminate achieves its realistic appearance from a photographic upper layer with a wear-resistant coating. With a dense, inner core and moisture-absorbing base, laminate is equipped to tackle whatever the day brings.
Laminate vs Hardwood
Laminate flooring is positioned as an alternative to hardwood flooring. How exactly does laminate compare to hardwood? Take a look at some of laminate's advantages:
Laminate is more wear resistant than hardwood. The surface will resist most scratches and scuffs.
Laminate planks have strong core and base layers, so they are more dimensionally stable than wood planks.
Because of its wear resistance, laminate is easier to clean and maintain.
Laminate is more affordable than hardwood flooring.
Where to Install Laminate Flooring
Many of us love the look and feel of natural hardwood, but not everyone has the correct environment (or budget) for this type of flooring. While actual hardwood can be pricey to purchase and to repair, laminate flooring gives you the same look for much less. An attractive choice for rental properties, laminate can be installed virtually anywhere.
