Hardwood Vs. Laminate Flooring: Pros & Cons
Wood flooring is – and has always been – a highly sought flooring choice, both for its durability and the warmth and beauty that it lends to a living space. In contrast, laminate flooring is a newer, durable alternative to hardwood flooring. It can withstand a certain level of exposure to moist environments without suffering any distortion. There are several pros and cons of hardwood vs. laminate flooring worth your consideration.
Hardwood flooring offers the traditional beauty and comfort of one of mankind’s oldest materials. Wooden flooring maintains a relatively stable temperature year-round and is extremely durable. When the surface of a standard-depth hardwood floor eventually becomes scratched or marred after several decades of service, and its beauty begins to fade, sanding and refinishing the surface can typically bring it back to its original beauty. This is why it is common to see hardwood flooring in continuous use in homes around the world that are centuries old.
Due to the process of harvesting, producing, and preparing hardwood materials for use as flooring, the cost of hardwood flooring planks can, in some cases, be more expensive than laminate and other flooring materials. However, depending on the wood that you choose and the grade, thickness, and other factors, hardwood may be an economical and wise investment for your home or office that adds significant and lasting value to your premises.
Laminate flooring is a durable, generally impervious flooring material well-suited to the demands of “wet rooms,” such as kitchens and bathrooms. Laminate flooring is typically composite wood or other durable products compressed and coated with a layer that conveys an image, wood grain, or other beautiful designs. In some cases, the materials and design of the laminate flooring material may be superior in durability to hardwood. Typical laminate floor installation tends to average about half of the cost of a typical hardwood floor.
Modern-quality laminate flooring is, in most cases, significantly more scratch-resistant, water-resistant, and easier to clean than hardwood flooring. Despite its advantages, laminate is not as easy to repair or replace as hardwood flooring.
