Laminate Vs Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood flooring is made from natural, durable woods, such as oak, maple, or hickory, that can last a long time when maintained properly.
Laminate flooring, which is made of a synthetic fiberboard material and has a laminate finish, is much cheaper than hardwood but will not last as long. This does not mean laminate flooring is a particularly inferior choice, however, as, in some cases, it can be more resistant to stains, scratches, moisture, and even general wear and tear. Much comes down to upkeep and quality materials.
