How Does Laminate Flooring Compare to Hardwood?

Laminate flooring came onto the market years ago, but it wasn’t as popular as today. Technology wasn’t as advanced back then. If you saw laminate flooring in the past, you could tell it was a hardwood “imposter.” Today’s laminate floors are more realistic and give you the wood and stone look you want.

Modern laminate flooring has a long list of benefits, including:

Is Laminate Flooring the Same As Vinyl Flooring?

The short answer is, “NO.” While these two resilient flooring families look similar, laminate flooring boasts significant advantages. Laminate flooring lasts longer, especially in high-traffic areas. While vinyl floors are fully synthetic, laminate flooring is manufactured from wood byproducts and resins. Additionally, laminate floors offer more convincing natural visuals, as they better capture textures like weathered hardwood and burnished slate.

Is Laminate Flooring Really Waterproof?

All laminate floors resist moisture, but only select options are genuinely waterproof.

Waterproof laminate flooring differs from typical laminates. These reinforced planks are armed with a resin-soaked, watertight core that prevents puddles and spills from sinking into your subfloor. We recommend a waterproof laminate for installations in the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry area.
