Replacing the solid wood flooring with laminate flooring.
You maybe ask why homeowners would like to consider laminate wood flooring ,in the same price as solid wood.
Here are three main reasons..
Firstly, The cost of pre-machined wood is much higher than that of laminate flooring. Solid wood is competitively priced with laminate wood flooring only if you plan to do the finishing. If you plan to hire a family of professionals to do this, then your installation fee should be $ 3 per square foot.
Secondly, the warranty of laminate wood flooring should be 15-30 years . However, solid wood flooring would be refinished 2-4 times. The cost of refinishing is quite expensive, but the laminate flooring price is lower than solid wood flooring ,so that cost must be factored in when evaluating the total costs of the two materials over their lifetime.
In the end, laminate flooring is easier to install than solid wood flooring, so DIY homeowners tend to like it to wood. Because it is simple, professional installation cost is also few.
It has an excellent return on investment due to competitive price for laminate flooring. Replacing the worn floor with this material will make the house more attractive, and if you sell the house, it will raise the price and increase the likelihood of sales.
In short,I think wood laminate flooring its a better choice.
