Laminate Flooring Is Not Hardwood Flooring

Laminate flooring is often made to look like hardwood flooring and many people say they have hardwood floors when the truth is they have laminate, the great imitator. Laminate flooring is a product comprising several layers of a core bonded together through a lamination process under high pressure. The decorative layer, which is nothing more than a high definition photograph, can simulate many surfaces such a hardwood, bamboo, tile or stone. The decorative layer is protected by a wear layer of cellulose paper saturated in resins or aluminum oxide. This makes laminate flooring extremely hard and scratch resistant.

Laminate floors quickly gained popularity because they looked like real wood flooring yet were much less expensive. Laminate is quite durable and relatively easy to maintain. One drawback with laminate is it can often sound hollow when walked on and many people describe a clicking sound. When installing laminate flooring, it is recommended to use an underlayment that also reduces noise transmission.

Unlike hardwood flooring, laminate flooring cannot be sanded and refinished. Should damage occur to laminate, the only option is to replace the damaged areas. When cleaning laminate floors, be sure to use cleaning products made for laminate and not hardwood. While these two floors may look alike, their materials are in fact very different and each require specific care and maintenance.

Thank you for writing this blog. I went looking for an apartment last week and was so excited to hear they had hardwood floors. Imagine my disappointment when I walked into the unit, took one step and heard that horrible hollow click from the laminate floors! I told the salesperson they shouldn't advertise they have hardwood when they have laminate.

A laminate flooring is very much easier to clean than an ordinary wood. The laminate flooring stairs that are coated with a good quality laminate material can provide excellent waterproofing.

Laminate is really best alternative to Hardwood because those looks like Hardwood and gives wonderful appearance and durability. Thanks for your great post.

This is important for people to know when they think they are getting a wood product because the core is made of wood. The "wood" finish they see isn't actually wood at all.

Laminate and engineered wood are floors that are often confused for each other. One thing is clear: neither are "real wood," in the sense of being 100% sawn wood like solid hardwood flooring. Past that point, the distinction gets murky.

Engineered Wood Floor
Still, engineered wood is most closely aligned to solid hardwood. Its price point, too, resembles that of solid hardwood and it does incorporate a thin layer of natural wood on top of dimensionally stable plywood.

Resale value is high; home buyers love it.
