Laminate Flooring VS Traditional Hardwood Flooring

Laminate Flooring is another popular alternative to hardwood flooring. If you’re dreaming of hardwood floors but having nightmares about the cost, don't worry, there are other options! You can now have the distinct look of hardwood flooring with laminate. Laminate flooring has almost the same color, texture and grain of real woods. Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor type that is “laminated” together. It is more economical than traditional hardwood flooring and in actuality, it bears a strong resemblance to the more expensive material. Laminate is basically constructed of 4 layers of material that is fused together. The first is a melamine wear layer; second is a photo taken in high-resolution of the exact surface it will be emulating; third is a dense core board; and the fourth layer is a melamine backing layer. Laminate flooring installation is going to make your home look beautiful due to its striking resemblance to hardwood or tile. Traditional hardwoods obviously have some advantages over laminates; otherwise they wouldn’t cost more.

Laminate flooring however, does hold a few distinct advantages over traditional hardwoods other than price.

Simple Maintenance

The laminate covering makes cleaning and maintenance very easy.

Mold Resistant

Laminate flooring naturally helps repel both mold and bacteria.

Installation Anywhere

Laminate flooring can easily be installed over just about any existing floor in your home if you wish.


Helps save time and money because the existing floor does not need to be ripped out and replaced.
