Hardwood Vs Laminate Flooring
Taking on a new flooring project can be daunting. There are thousands of options out there and it is hard for the average person to know the real differences between them. We would like to offer some expert comparison to help you decide between the many options available. When searching for Scottsdale hardwood flooring you probably came across Scottsdale laminate flooring as well. This is one of the main choices many of our valued customers have to make.
Moisture, Price and Durability Comparisons
The good thing about hardwood flooring in Scottsdale is that it is usually not subject to large fluctuations in moisture, and can be installed almost anywhere in the house. Wood flooring also adds great value to your home and really impresses prospective buyers. So whether you are in your dream house creating your vision of perfection, or in a starter home that you will likely leave in a few years, it is a wise investment.
The engineered hardwood that we use in our floors is the most flexible in terms of where it can be applied, price, and durability. In Scottsdale wood flooring is a great option to add a different style element without the harshness of tile and the upkeep of carpet. There are tons of real hardwood options available at Scottsdale Flooring America that can lend your home that one of a kind elegance that cannot be duplicated by synthetic options. On the other hand, laminate flooring is often compared closely with hardwood flooring.
Look and Feel, and Installation
In Scottsdale laminate flooring is a budget friendly option to get that great wood look and feel. Laminate flooring offers good durability and relatively easy installation compared to real hardwood. Laminate flooring can be used anywhere that real hardwood can. They are both equally as easy to clean and can be installed in the more messy areas of the home such as the kitchen and dining room for stress free spill cleaning. The only real drawback to the laminate flooring is that you will not have the authentic look and feel of real wood. The laminates are made to mimic very closely what the wood looks like, but there is no substitute for the true beauty mother nature creates.
