Here in The Wirral wood flooring is much sought after because it looks beautiful and it feels warm underfoot. For many it is not a question of, “Do I want a wooden floor” as, “Do I want a laminate or hardwood floor?” There are a few factors to consider. The first is price. Laminate flooring is, on average, about 50% less costly than hardwood. In addition to a higher price tag, hardwood may carry an eco cost some are not happy to pay. The second factor is durability and maintenance. Flooring needs to be able to handle traffic. Only you will know how much traffic your floor must be able to handle, and its nature. Laminate floors resist moisture and scratches better than hardwoods do. It is also much easier to clean. One also wants to consider aesthetics or how the floor looks. There is no doubt that hardwood floors look more beautiful and warmer even when compared to even the best quality laminates. Hardwood is also more likely to add value to your home. Because floors deal with a lot of wear and tear, repairs will most likely be needed at some stage. Laminate flooring is not easy to repair but one can buy a replacement piece. Of course, the new section may not match the rest of the floor in terms of colour. Hardwood, on the other hand, can be repaired with sanding and refinishing of various types. However, it may fade in the sun more than laminates which often contain UV protection.
