Wood and Laminate Flooring, the Solution You Were Looking For This type of coatings is on the rise because they are cheaper than parquet and more resistant. Also, it offers a great variety of designs and colors. If you are considering changing the floor of your home, you are building your ideal home, or you are simply remodeling the attic or basement, you may be interested in this article. With as many possibilities as laminate flooring poses, no one can wonder why they are the most frequently chosen. Keep in mind that they are much more resistant than parquet floors and floors of solid wood. Aroma, color, texture, and warmth- these are some words that describe the delicious sensations aroused by closeness to wood, that jewel of nature that always gives the home a personality of its own, whether in furniture, finishes or floors. It is in these last ones that the market has had a significant evolution that today allows choosing between floors of solid wood, structured wood, and laminates that, although they are imitation, come to provide warm and elegant environments similar to the natural product, always and when they are of high quality.
Solid wood Choosing this alternative is to give the property an added value that brings not only elegance but also durability. It is more expensive than the others, and its installation is time-consuming, it requires a complete work as it needs a structure or subfloor, also of wood, on which the floor itself is stapled or stapled, so that not all spaces are apt to be placed. Its advantages are its durability, high resistance to heavy impact and scratches, quick cleaning, as well as the low maintenance required due to the new technologies that make possible the lacquering and sealing through an industrial and non-manual process, to lengthen their life and good appearance. The most demanded timber is Sapan, Granadillo, Algarrobo, guayacán, incense and, to a lesser extent, oak. The manufacturers are obliged to acquire raw material with the license, which guarantees their legal origin and proper use. Structured floors It is an intermediate option that mixes the qualities of the wood with the speed of the installation of a floating floor. The body goes through a treatment that makes it water resistant and fire retardant, two characteristics that are an added value. It is also possible to make a superficial sanding to
renew its brightness. The companies guarantee it for ten years, although well taken care of it remains intact for more time. Laminates Finally, there is the laminate floor, a practical, more economical and easy installation, with a shorter life, between 3 and seven years, depending on the traffic for which it is designed. It offers a handsome appearance and, well selected, enhances the simpler decoration, although it requires a lot of care since it can break or sink quickly since not very thick sheets form it. This alternative is ideal for homes with concrete floors, where it is challenging to install solid wood. It requires bases of quality that insulate the humidity and sound, to avoid that feeling of space that you feel when you step on them. The better the quality, the more natural the veins of the laminate flooring will be. In this way, no matter if there is a lot or little budget, you can completely renovate your home, because just changing the floors will give you a new personality.
