When laminate was first introduced it was positioned as an alternative to hardwood. When first introduced there was no mistaking the difference, today’s technology has made laminate look and feel more realistic.

Laminate vs. Hardwood Flooring

If you are working on a strict budget, then laminate is the right solution for you. Since laminate is made with man-made products, it is priced lower than hardwood or stone. Dents and scratches are less likely to occur in laminated floors compared to hardwood. Laminate flooring can also handle moisture better than hardwood.

Laminate manufacturers have seen significant advances in digital printing technology which makes laminate look as real as wood. Hardwood will forever have a distinct characteristic that cannot be matched, but laminate makes a great alternative. Laminate floors are less expensive in both material and labor costs as opposed to hardwood.

Laminate Installation

Laminate floors come in a floating floor system and a benefit of floating floors is that it is easier to replace if you change your flooring. If you're considering putting down a hard surface for temporary use, consider a floating installation. Floating installation is also less time consuming and less expensive.

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.
