Modern homes have so many wonderful options to choose from when it comes to your floors. For our part, we offer everything from Herringbone to vinyl and even bamboo flooring. There are some floor materials, like laminate flooring, which have become very popular since they provide superior protection against moisture and heat.
Why Laminate Flooring?
Flooring.org wants to suggest a few reasons why you should consider laminate flooring for your next home renovation.
There are several advantages to choosing laminate floors.
Less Expensive Than Hardwood
Hardwood floors might cost you anywhere from $6 to $23 per square foot, whereas laminate flooring ranges from $1 to $12 generally. Also, since hardwood floor is harder to install (see bullet point #3), you’re likely to incur higher labor costs as well.
Not all laminate is made the same, which is an advantage for homeowners who want to spend more on a durable version with a higher Abrasion Criteria (AC). Laminate comes in different strengths, including the kind with the highest ratings of AC4/AC5.
Easier to Install/Repair
Many homeowners choose to install laminate flooring themselves, which is a lot more feasible than it is with other materials. We also think the cleaning and maintenance are easier. You’ll have less difficulty trying to control the dust as well as handle spills as laminate doesn’t stain as badly.
Do you want your laminate to resemble stone, wood, or other textures? It’s all possible and you can probably do it with fewer defects. Sometimes, the imitation approach is better, especially since you have a wider range of colors to choose from as well.
Whether you choose to install laminate flooring in a living room, kitchen, bedroom, or basement, it looks good everywhere. This is true even in humid climates where other materials run the risk of moisture damage in certain areas of the house.
