The Durability of Laminate Flooring Types

Do you love the look of hardwood but not the labor required to maintain and preserve it? Laminate flooring gives your home the same look as quality hardwood, but with much less effort to keep it looking great. Scratches, stains, fading- laminates feature a durability unmatched by most other flooring types.

To understand the unique durability of laminate flooring you must understand how it is made. Laminates are created from composite wood that is pressed together, then an image of the desired style or pattern is used to cover the composite. However, modern methods in materials used by Quantum Floors, located in Boynton Beach, actually use embossed-in-register textured finishes, so that the laminate can exactly replicate the feel of the desired flooring, whether it be an exotic hardwood or an antique finish.

Because the laminate flooring doesn't actually use expensive hardwoods or materials it can actually cost 50% less to install, and it is much more durable. Laminate flooring's resistance to scratches, stains, and general wear make it perfect for high-traffic areas or for homes with children or pets, which might otherwise spell disaster for regular wood flooring.

Previously laminate flooring was more difficult to repair ?than hardwood, which could simply be sanded and refinished for minor repairs, but with the advent of individual laminate pieces it has become possible to simply replace affected areas, which greatly reduces the cost of repairs to laminate flooring.
