How Does Laminate Flooring Compare to Hardwood?

Laminate flooring and hardwood flooring look virtually identical from above, but they are fundamentally different floors.


  • Natural hardwood flooring is made from premium hardwood, such as oak, maple, hickory, and so on. Hardwood planks are beautiful but are notorious for shrinking or expanding when the temperature shifts. This can present a problem during our wet or snowy seasons, especially with solid hardwood flooring.


  • Laminate flooring planks are created by gluing together several layers of composite wood. Then, a wood look image that mirrors premium hardwood is placed toward the surface, with a durable finish protecting it. Laminate planks are way, way less prone to moisture damages and there are even fully waterproof options to consider. They never require refinishing or polishing and are significantly more affordable.



Laminate Floors for Life in Ontario


With Oshawa’s drastic seasonal shifts, it’s important to choose flooring carefully.


Durable, moisture-friendly laminate flooring is a budget-friendly option that can weather typical Canadian winters. It’s ideal for families with pets or young children, as it’s easy to clean, yet stylish enough to incorporate into all décor schemes.


Laminate floors are great for those coping with seasonal allergies, as they’re less likely to trap everyday allergens. Practical, comfortable, and easy to live with, laminate flooring truly has much to offer.




Is Laminate Flooring Waterproof?

Laminate today is available in fully waterproof options.


In the past, you would only find water-resistant laminate on your shelves. However flooring technology has advanced such that waterproof laminate flooring planks can fully protect your subfloor from moisture damage. Each plank snaps together so that the seams are watertight. Additionally, a stain-resistant surface keeps your floor looking beautiful. 


Choose a waterproof laminate floor for spaces prone to regular spills or moisture. It’s wonderful for the kitchen & bath, as well as finished basements, mudrooms, and entryways.



Where Else Can Laminate Floors Be Installed?

Laminate can be installed anywhere you can put hardwood floors and beyond.


Among the areas typically chosen for laminate flooring installation are:



  • Bedrooms
  • Living Rooms
  • Family Rooms
  • Dining Rooms
  • Hallways
  • Stairs
  • Rental Properties
  • Offices



Enjoy laminate floors anywhere you wish to bring a high-end hardwood look to. 



Can I Install My Own Laminate Floor?

We strongly recommend professional flooring installation.


Although laminate flooring isn’t as difficult to install as hardwood or tile, flooring installation isn’t for beginners. It’s time consuming and requires you to perfectly clean, prep, level, and measure.


Most of us simply don’t have the time to install floors properly, which is why we proudly offer professional flooring installations. When you install with us, you’re placing your home or business in the hands of experts, and you’ll be sure to be covered by your laminate warranty if anything goes wrong in a couple years.
