Originally, laminate was introduced as an alternative to hardwood flooring. When laminate first became available 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

If you’re looking for a floor that fits your budget and look realistic, then consider laminate 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. The best part is laminate floors do not need to be refinished! Digital printing technology has come a long way, and even though laminate cannot bring the same dollar value, it delivers aesthetic value. 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 Flooring Installation

Laminate flooring comes in floating floor options. 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. Floating floors are fast and easy to install, and you can walk on them the same day. Unlike a real hardwood floor, laminate requires less maintenance. Spills should be wiped up immediately and occasional mopping with manufacturer approved products is recommended.
