We want to help you realize the numerous benefits of laminate hardwood flooring!
While hardwood is made from solid wood, laminate is made from particle board topped with an imitation of wood grain to make it look like solid hardwood. Another difference between solid hardwood and laminate is the installation process. Laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation and can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Benefits of Laminate Flooring:
- It’s made out of paper, so it does not involve the harvesting of old-growth trees.
- It’s a good choice for people with allergies because unlike carpet, laminate doesn’t trap dirt and dust.
- Laminate is a cheaper alternative to solid or engineered hardwood.
- If you ever decide to remodel, it is a recyclable material.
- To clean, just sweep often to remove debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. No refinishing or resurfacing is necessary.
- Laminate hardwood is available in a wide variety of colors, sizes, styles, and more.
