If you watch home improvement shows on television – and who doesn’t – then you know that most of the time, when given a choice between carpeting and wood floors, homeowners choose wood. That’s because wood floors are beautiful and coordinate with any decor, unlike carpeting that has to be chosen in a specific color and texture, which may not fit every color scheme or taste. If you’re remodeling or just giving your North Texas home a facelift and you want to pull out your worn and dirty carpeting, you’re probably thinking about wood floors. Or are you? Real hardwood flooring has a close cousin called laminate flooring in Frisco TX that has the look of hardwoods but with many advantages you should consider:
1 – Great Looks
The technology involved in producing laminate flooring in Frisco TX is so advanced that today’s laminates look almost exactly like real hardwoods. Naturally-occurring wood patterns, like those found in real wood, and the ability to roll the patterns over the edges of the planks, give the laminates a look that might even fool flooring specialists.
2 – Exceptional Value
Square foot for square foot, laminate flooring costs less than real wood flooring. Real wood flooring is made from harvested trees, some fairly exotic, which makes them more expensive than laminates which are made from layers of composite wood pressed together at high temperatures. In addition, installation of laminates is generally less expensive than hardwoods.
3 – Easy Clean-Up
Spills on laminate flooring in Frisco TX aren’t the nightmare they might be on carpeting or real hardwood floors. All you need to clean a laminate floor is a vacuum, a broom or a damp cloth. With advances in plank-edge technology, it’s even hard to trap dirt and debris between planks.
4 – Durability
Most higher-end laminate flooring will sustain damage that other types of flooring won’t. Not only are the layers of the flooring harder and less likely to dent than real wood, plank surfaces are often treated with special finishes that protect them from penetration and discoloration.
5 – Green Manufacturing
Many companies that produce laminate flooring use massive amounts of pre-consumer, recycled materials including billions of pounds of wood waste that would ordinarily make its way into the waste stream.
