When it comes to the debates between laminate vs hardwood, people have different opinions. Naturally, the hardwood is considered better because of its solidity as well as quality. Don't need to be afraid about the floor being warped or waved or such thing alike because the hardwood, after all, has this solid and even surface. But then again, the hardwood is super expensive. If you are rather low on the budgets, this can be a serious problem. Let?s compare and look the most appealing to you.
We are really sure that hardwood is better than the laminate floor when it comes to quality. But as we know that the productions of laminate flooring are experiencing an impressive development and increase in the quality nowadays. In the past, laminate floor may easily warp or wave but you will never find such an issue today. Of course, the hardwood is better but you can?t neglect the fact that the laminate type is getting better and better all these years. In fact, with proper installation also maintenance, it can last for good without any significant damage. But again, it is back on your preference of which one you like between laminate or may be hardwood.
Hardwood that made of solid 100% wood is quite different from the engineered type with a plywood base. Laminate floor is not precisely a wood. It is a fiberboard (the thin one) with stone or wood image on top of it and finished with a transparent layer. Some of the laminate floor types have glossy effect ? something you will never find from a hardwood floor.
It takes a professional and experienced installer to do the hardwood floor ? it also takes serious equipment, such as the floor stapler. Mastering such a seemingly simple tool requires skills and experience, even a learning curve. If you are a newbie or you are clueless about the whole thing, don?t try to do it on your own. However, the laminate floor is simple to be set because it has its own snap mechanism. From efficiency and easiness point of view, you know who the winner is in this comparison.
In most cases, laminate floor lasts around 10 years and the lifespan will be shortened from water infiltration, scratches, or UV ray exposure. The hardwood is long lasting. It is sturdier also more solid. nless it is flooded, we are sure that your floor to last for good.
