Replacing your current floor is an investment--and just like any other investment, you want to compare your options and make sure you are picking the right type of flooring for your home.

Comparing Hardwood Flooring With Engineered Wood And Laminate:
The differences between the three materials are often more apparent when you compare each aspect of these types of hardwood flooring. For instance, if you are looking for something that has the look of real wood, but without the maintenance, laminate flooring could be a better option. If you are looking for a long-term investment that is easy to repair, you may want engineered or real hardwood flooring. As always, how your flooring is installed will also determine the longevity and value of your floor.
