Laminate floors -Laminate floors are floating floors. Laminate is fake - it looks like hardwood, but its not - its a digital picture of hardwood and it clicks together. (There are also versions that look like tile) One of the advantage of laminate is that is less expensive than hardwood - both material-wise and labor-wise and it can often be placed on top of existing flooring without needing to rip it up, so this saves more money in labor.
Engineered hardwood flooring has become a top choice in homes and offices throughout the world. This manufactured flooring solution provides you with the beauty of natural wood with the strength of layers which have been laminated together. This type of flooring lasts for years, providing you with a beautiful finish to any room design.
There is a repair kit that you can get from the manufacture so you can repair your laminate floors. If you cannot repair your laminate flooring, it is not so expensive that it cannot be replaced. What is a floating floor? I get this question often from customers because someone has told them they should get it. But, they dont understand what a floating is. Technically, a floating floor means that it is "floating" on top of the floor below it and is not directly secured to the floor (i.e. no nails and no glue).
While wood flooring is durable and capable of withstanding quite a bit of abuse, there may come a time where it is in need of being touched up due to scuffs, scratches or water damage. Depending on the extent of the damage to the floor, it may only need a refinishing or a partial replacement in some areas. However, in cases of more serious damage, the entire flooring could need to be replaced. If the floor looks damaged it is probably best to assess the extent and proceed appropriately so that specialists can repair the strips or planks.
