Laminate hardwood flooring is a great alternative to solid hardwood flooring. It has the beautiful look of hardwood, with the easy maintenance of laminate! Floor Coverings International North Jersey serves the greater Mahwah, Paramus, Wayne, and North Jersey area and we want to help you realize the numerous benefits of laminate hardwood flooring!
Laminate hardwood flooring is made from particle boards topped with an imitation of wood grain to make it look like solid hardwood. Laminate hardwood flooring is not real wood, but has the appearance of it. Another difference between solid hardwood and laminate is the installation process. Laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation. Laminate can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Benefits of Laminate Hardwood Flooring
- It’s a good choice for people with allergies because unlike carpet, laminate doesn’t trap dirt and dust.
- If you ever decide to remodel, it is a recyclable material.
- Like hardwood, it comes in a variety of colors and styles.
- It’s a cheaper alternative to solid or engineered hardwood.
