If you’re considering updating your flooring in your home, then you’ve come to the right place. With so many different options and price points, it can be hard to decide which type of flooring is the right for your home. While hardwood flooring or vinyl flooring might be attractive, but you’re leaning towards laminate flooring. So, to help you make your decision, here are some benefits of going laminate.
Laminate flooring is extremely strong and is a scratch-resistant. That means it’s perfect for areas and rooms with a lot of traffic, specifically by children or pets. Compared to hardwood, which scratches easily, laminate can be your saving grace when it comes to keeping your floors looking new, longer.
For the majority of homeowners and Do-it-yourselfers, laminate can be the best choice. That’s because it doesn’t take much effort to install and the boards are premade to interlock with one another. It also doesn’t require glue, nails, or staples to be installed. So if you’re looking to tackle your flooring project by yourself, laminate is the way to go.
Compared to traditional hardwood, laminate is much less expensive and doesn’t sacrifice appearance by any means. You can find a type of laminate that fits within any budget, or even if you just want great looking flooring that will stand the test of time.
No matter what type of subfloor you’re working with, laminate can be easily installed over the top of it. It can even be installed over existing vinyl flooring as well. In many cases, hardwood flooring isn’t able to be installed on certain types of subflooring or preexisting flooring, which makes laminate your go-to choice.
Because laminate is so durable, it’s even stain resistant. That means cleaning up spills or general maintenance is a breeze. No more having to buy specific cleaners or scrubbing those old floors, all you need is a broom and you’re good to go.
Due to the moisture barrier which prevents mold and mildew from building up as well as the fact that there are no crevices are cracks for dust and other particulates to be trapped, laminate is great for those with allergies. Since 81% of homeowners tend to choose their flooring type based on how it looks and feels and 63% choose based on the durability, all homeowners would be more than happy with laminate flooring.
