In the greater Orange County, Middletown, Goshen, and Warwick area, laminate hardwood flooring blends the beauty of hardwood with the lasting value and easy maintenance of laminate. It is made from particle board topped with a photograph of a wood grain to make it look like hardwood. Unlike hardwood, though, laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation. Laminate can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Laminate hardwood flooring is also environmentally friendly. It’s also a good choice for people with allergies, because unlike carpet, laminate doesn’t trap dirt and dust. To clean, just sweep it often to remove debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth. No refinishing or resurfacing is necessary.
One drawback to laminate hardwood flooring is that it’s difficult to repair. If you anticipate scratches and dings in your floor, you may want to consider engineered hardwood flooring, which has a thin strip of hardwood that can be lightly sanded over the course of its lifetime.
Laminate hardwood flooring comes in as many styles and species as real hardwood. For that reason, it can be tricky to choose the perfect floor for your home.
