In Heswall, laminate flooring installation costs on average fifty percent less than hardwood – this is a big saving for those who want the look and feel of wood but can’t justify paying big prices that come with the real thing. Many people choose to purchase older homes simply because the original hardwood floors are so beautiful and timeless, but these older, bigger homes can bring their own share of maintenance worries.
Laminate flooring is made by pressing composite wood together at high temperatures, and covering this with an image of real hardwood. It is more durable than real wood flooring, better resisting scratches, moisture and wear. Hardwood floors are made from harvested wood – and come with a higher purchase and installation price tag. In the sunny months, strong sunlight on real wood flooring can cause it to fade – this won’t happen with laminate which has UV protection. But, at the end of the day it is up to you which you prefer. If you are seeking laminate flooring in Heswall, consult the team at Wirral Flooring for all the options.
