Laminate flooring usually is made from high-density fiber or wood particles, with a laminate overlay that is designed to look like wood or stone. A clear, hard layer is placed on top, giving the laminate floor its durability. Laminate flooring has become a popular way to update the look of a home.
Laminate flooring works well in high-traffic areas and homes with pets. It is scratch-resistant, durable and easy to clean. Just use a dust mop or a mop dampened with water. Most manufacturers offer at least a 10-year warranty on their product.
Engineered wooden flooring consists of layered tiers of real wood pressed together. The real wood surface veneer layer is available in many different designs and finishes, and is also available in many different thicknesses ranging from 0.5mm up to 6mm. A typical veneer being 3.6mm which can be sanded 4/5 times. During the manufacturing process, the layers of real timber run in different directions meaning it is more dimensionally stable than solid wood, but identical to solid wooden flooring in appearance. Engineered wood flooring is perfect for those areas of the house where solid wood flooring may not be suitable, such as basements, conservatories or over under-floor heating.
Solid wood floors are manufactured from a single piece of timber, and offer the consumer the most authentic and natural wood flooring option possible. Solid wood floors are normally 18-20mm thick; therefore they can take years of wear, and the stresses of everyday life. They can also be sanded down and re-finished numerous times, which truly makes a solid wood floor a floor for life.
When choosing a solid wood floor, there can be a range of different widths, lengths and finishes available to you. The most common width range for solid wood floors tends to be between 130-150mm, although depending on species solid wood floors can be as narrow as 90mm, and up to 200mm wide.
