If you want flooring that can withstand anything your household can throw at it but love the look of wood flooring in your home, you need to consider getting engineered hardwood and laminate. These flooring types are both very durable, not to mention with all of the style choices, you'll have gorgeous flooring that resembles real wood!
Engineered hardwood is made of many layers of plywood that form the core of the boards. Over this, a layer of hardwood is applied. Once the flooring is installed and finished, no one that visits your Calgary home will be able to tell the difference between your new flooring and solid hardwood.
While engineered hardwood flooring looks just like its hardwood counterpart, there are benefits to choosing this flooring instead:
If you have your heart set on real, solid hardwood flooring for your Calgary home but worry about the durability, engineered hardwood flooring is an excellent alternative.
Laminate flooring is made with a high-density fiberboard core and a resin-coated top layer. The one problem with laminate flooring is that you have to be sure to buy a quality laminate if you want true durability. You won't have to worry about your laminate flooring when the heavy traffic of your life travels across your floors, like you would with hardwood flooring.
With today's excellent graphic capabilities, laminate flooring can provide you with the beautiful look of wood, for less money and it will hold up better. If you want a great, durable flooring and aren't fond of the wood look, there is an incredible assortment of laminate styles to choose from.
