Hardwood flooring has an excellent finish look but laminate wood flooring http://www.wood2u.co.uk/ safeguards better than hardwood flooring for scratches, staining and decolourization. It also has greater resistance power to impact. Does not easily get warped by moisture, in fact it has water repelling properties. It is also very easy to install and can be done by a person with no prior experience. The only downside when compared to hard wood flooring it’s not as easy to repair as hardwood flooring.
