Laminate brings the look of wood with lower maintenance.

Laminate and engineered wood floors bring the option of wood flooring to more homes and rooms than ever before. While both of these wood flooring types have the look of wood, they are manufactured with different materials which makes them more affordable. These types of wood flooring are also more flexible with installation requirements and less vulnerable to moisture. Another benefit to both laminate wood floors and engineered wood flooring is that they are available at a lower cost than traditional, solid hardwood. Laminate or engineered wood flooring offers quality, beautiful wood floors to fit any budget.

Laminate wood floors

Today’s laminate floors are available in a multitude of designs, patterns, and textures. You can mimic the look of nearly any solid hardwood with laminate wood flooring. Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of laminate wood flooring is the final layer that is bonded on top of the floor-the layer that you see. This final wear layer provides protection and wear resistance that stands up to even the most active households.

Engineered wood floors

Engineered wood floors are a mix of both natural hardwood and laminate materials. With a wood core and a veneer of natural hardwood as the top layer, an engineered wood floor is both versatile and stable. Most engineered floors can be nailed, stapled, glued or floated over a wide variety of subfloors, including some types of existing flooring and concrete slabs.
