Introduction
  • Purchasing your dream home is one thing however,
    choosing the flooring options is altogether a
    different task.
  • It's about the elegance and looks yet at an
    affordable cost. With so many options available
    in the markets it seems a tussle task. Well, the
    market is filled with options like wood, vinyl,
    laminate, ceramic, rubber, etc.
  • Of these laminate flooring usually known as
    melamine flooring is the simplest way to give the
    look of natural flooring at a fraction of the
    price. Other than low price, laminates are even
    easier to install, thereby saving your costs on
    installation as well.

  • Laminate flooring has a protective coating with a
    combination of melamine and aluminum oxide. The
    coating changes the aesthetic, giving more
    durability and compromising design.
  • Laminate flooring consists of four layers which
    are placed together where the first layer is
    plastic, then the melamine flooring that
    stabilizes the floor and resists the moisture.
  • Medium or high-density fiberboard will make up
    for the core layers that compress together with
    adhesive and resin.

Why engineered flooring over laminate floors?
  • Laminates are synthetic flooring and designed to
    only to imitate the appearance of real wood.
    Engineered flooring consists of several kinds of
    wood or plywood layers. They are produced from
    single pieces of wood giving better durability,
    original look, and feel.
  • Melamine floorings are not easy to repair. If
    they are installed with glue-down way, then the
    floor repair becomes very difficult. They cannot
    be sanded or refinished as well. Even if damaged
    planks are removed and replaced, the new pieces
    won't properly match the rest of the floors.

  • Solid or engineered flooring is easier to repair
    than laminates. If the surface damage is
    extensive, the entire floor could be sanded and
    refinished.
  • Spot repairs can be done easily on oiled hardwood
    floors and within a couple of hours.
  • Laminate floors have a shorter lifespan as
    compared to engineered hardwood flooring. It is
    estimated that laminate floors have to be
    replaced more often and accumulate wear and tear,
    surface scratches and damages can destroy the
    floor. Because engineered floors can be sanded,
    they give a lifespan of around 10-20 years.

  • Solid hardwood floors are 100 organic as the
    planks are produced from single pieces of wood.
    It's manufactured from several layers of solid
    wood or plywood material which are organic
    maintain a healthy environment and good air
    quality. Laminates are bond of composite material
    and melamine resin at higher temperature and
    pressure, a lot of chemical toxins is used in the
    product and its installation.
  • So, heres why engineered wood flooring will
    outcast the melamine flooring!
