Natural Hardwood Vs. Laminate Flooring In Cape Town
Natural hardwood flooring is undeniably one of the most popular choices in floor coverings for homes around the world. However, there are a few disadvantages to installing natural hardwood floors in your home and this is why materials such as laminate flooring inCape Town may be a better choice.
Unlike natural hardwood floors, laminate flooring is unlikely to become unsightly due to scratches and nicks that appear on the wood floor surface over time. This is because the laminate flooring material is covered in a thin resin that has scratch resistant properties.laminate flooring
Laminate flooring in Cape Town is also unlikely to succumb to water damage of any kind. The floor boards will not become stained or warped by moisture although it is always a good idea to clean up any spills on any type of floor surface as quickly as possible. Once again this is due to the resinous layer on the laminate flooring boards that have water proofing properties. This makes laminate flooring much easier to clean and care for than wood. No polishes or oils are required to feed the wood and keep it from cracking and a damp cloth will remove most dirt from the floor surface.
Hardwood floors are difficult to install and need to be treated and sanded once the installation process is complete to ensure a flat surface with an even flow. Laminate flooring can be installed directly over most existing floor surfaces simply by clicking the planks into one another. The laminate flooring will automatically result in a flat even surface once the floor boards have been installed according to the installation techniques provided by the manufacturer of the material.
