Laminate flooring offers the look of real wood without hardwood flooring’s susceptibility to warping and swelling from humidity and moisture. Laminate NYC flooring is usually constructed with a high-density fiberboard core that is sandwiched between a melamine laminate backing and a high-quality photographic paper with an image of wood and a melamine laminate top. Unlike engineered wood flooring, laminate flooring contains no actual wood even though it does provide a pretty good simulation. Because they don’t warm or swell like hardwood and engineered wood, laminate NYC flooring is a good alternative for bathrooms and basements. They are also generally scratch resistant, but if your laminate floor does get scratched, dented or banged up, it’s not very easy to repair it. Unlike hardwood floors, which can be simply sanded and refinished, you’ll need to painstakingly repair laminate floors with manufacturer-provided touch-up and chip repair kits, or, if needed, replace entire planks. That’s why if you have children or pets, hardwood or engineered floors may be a better choice in the long run for heavily traffic areas. Of course, since laminate floors never need polish or wax routine maintenance is quite easy—always a plus!
