Purchasing a house that needs new flooring. SO which one is better?
Laminate floors are easy to install, easy to care for, and can look nice, depending on the quality of the flooring you buy. Hardwood floors have to be nailed down, so the installation is more difficult. If you buy unfinished hardwood, they need to be sanded, stained, and covered with 3+ coats of polyurethane. If you drop something on a laminate floor, you cannot sand a scratch or gouge out of it, You need to dismantle the floor to that point and replace the board. Once the floor gets scratched, you cannot refinish it, you have to replace it. Hardwood floors can be sanded and finished multiple times. They are generally richer looking. I hope this helps you with your decision.
get a really good hard wood flooring..so much better than the laminate..it will last a life time.
lock floors are a lot easier to install. they have tongue and groove so anyone can really put them in. so if you wanted to do it yourself and save the money of paying someone else to install it then that is an option.
