What is the pros & cons of Laminate hardwood floor compare to engineered one?

engineered floor 5 Comments »

I’ve been living with carpet all my life and would love to have a hardwood floor in my new home. However due to limited budget, I could not afford the real hardwood or engineered. I had the Empire Today guy showed me the laminate option and it looks like the real hardwood. According to him it’s better because I have an active little boy (6 yrs old) and more durable than hardwood. But I also heard that it could decrease the value of the house, is this true?

I agree with Catherine…If you live in a very nice house in an upscale neighborhood, get hardwood. If your house is not as nice as that, it will not decrease the value of your house to use the Pergo type flooring.

I might add that the quality of the laminate flooring should be considered. Get one that has a 25 to 30 year guarantee. They are easy to maintain, and look and function extremely well.

thanks i should state i already have the varnish but need some help with the best thing to apply to the floor with thanks

If using and oil based product, you will want to use a sanding sealer first, then two top coats of the finish product sanding before the last coat. You will apply this with a china bristle brush, or you can use a lambswools applicator in the field. If you are using a waterborne product, then you must apply with a pad for best results. The only other suggestion to give is to not mix products of finish, like brand A with Brand B. If you do use a stain, make sure that it is 100% dry, and again, try to stay brand specific.

What is your question ?
Try this, you will need a compressor and a hardwood floor stapler which is a nail gun with an angle it hooks over the tongue edge of hardwood and you hit the top with a rubber mallet shooting long adhesive coated staples at an angle into the hardwood.
