Laminate Flooring vs. Hardwood
Laminate flooring has come a long way over the years. Laminate is no longer that shiny floor trying desperately to look like wood, tile, and stone. If you are considering hardwood, tile, or stone, you should consider laminate, and not just for its ability to mimic the real floors you desire, but because of its resilience and affordability.
Why you Should Choose Laminate
At Carpet One Wilmington, we offer a wide variety of flooring, and laminate floors have proven to stand up to other flooring lookalikes, like LVT and vinyl.
Laminate floors are created with high resolution photography to give the appearance of real wood, tile, and stone. Brands, such as Laminate for Life, provide an authentic look of the real flooring options so your guests won’t be able to tell the difference.
How Durable is Wood Laminate Flooring?
Along with its luxurious appearance, laminate flooring is also easy to clean and resistant to scratching. Laminate for Life feature the FinishGAURD protective surface, which not only ensures lasting color, but resistance to stains, fading, moisture, scuffs, and scratches. Laminate floors, specifically Laminate for Life, allow you to live on it and not worry about kids and pet accidents. Additionally, laminate floors are low maintenance, especially Laminate for Life floors. The Clean-N-Go feature adheres to homeowners on the go. You are able to wash your floor with ease and get to your next chore. Not to mention, Laminate for Life floors are eco-friendly and allergen-free. No need for you to feel trapped during allergy season, because with the ease of cleaning and allergen-free features, you are protected.
Unlike LVT flooring though, laminate is more susceptible to moisture. However, Laminate for Life provides a SnapSEAL locking system. This system creates a tight seal so dust, dirt, and water won’t settle underneath the subfloor.
