When choosing a superior product, you can enjoy the Eco-friendly advantage of having hydrophobic agents added to the edges to prevent moisture. Once the floorboards are installed, you can walk on them immediately and begin enjoying the seamless look of real wood, without the hassle of fading, scratches or wear. With this in mind, laminate has a natural splendor in high traffic areas that would otherwise be damaged by less durable flooring selections. Laminate can even be installed on stairs, although a more involved installation process is necessary and includes gluing down the boards and nailing in molding and transitions.
Hardwood floors have been used in houses and even in palaces for centuries. Laminate floors, however, are a modern invention that is around 30 years old. (Laminate floors consist of laminated blocks of various designs, including those that have the appearance of hardwood flooring.) Hardwood floors come with their own benefits. They feel more real and they sound like wood (because they are real wood), giving the entire house a royal feel. A hardwood floor has a more natural feel than a laminate floor. Laminate floors have a thick pad underneath, which makes it feel spongy and floating while hardwood floors provide a sturdier, firmer feel. Often the cost of putting up a hardwood floor and a laminate floor is almost the same. It is for this reason that hardwood floors are seeing another surge in popularity.
