Laminate floor companies are now devising their own means of gaining the trust of customers - most of them offer warranties and discounts, and some may even provide you with free installation of the flooring. For example, one manufacturer that sells high-grade laminate flooring for a reasonable price is Trafficmaster Laminate Flooring. Trafficmaster Laminate Flooring as well as other major flooring companies produce laminate floor boards that can be installed by clicking and locking them together. But don`t get this wrong - laminates with click-and-lock panels are just as stable and sturdy as any wood flooring. Trafficmaster also offers laminate floors which can be installed by nailing or gluing boards to the original floor. Before you make a purchase, you need to choose which of these two installation methods can best serve your needs. You have to take note that laminates that have be nailed or glued need to be installed with the help of a professional craftsman.
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.
