by Alex M. Worked as a Business Development Manager

Oak laminate flooring has the impression of natural wood flooring but is less expensive than real wood flooring.

It is, nevertheless, a synthetic product created from low-cost basic components. It is a fairly new concept that is increasingly becoming popular due to its low cost and simplicity of installation. 

It does not use natural wood, unlike other forms of wood flooring. Instead a laminate flooring employs a photographic picture of wood on a decorative paper. 

In this article, the discussion is going to be about the various pros and cons of installing laminate flooring which people should be aware of.


Cons of laminate flooring

Let us first talk about the limitations or cons of installing laminate flooring at a house or a workspace-

      Laminate floorings cannot be refinished or sanded

One of the main disadvantages of a wood laminate floor is that it could not be refinished, sanded, or mended like hardwood flooring if it is damaged. The broken planks or floorboards are impossible.   With continued usage and cleaning, the topmost wear layer might gradually erode away. Keep in mind that if an individual piece is damaged, it may need to be replaced, or the entire block may need to be modified if there is widespread spoiling.

      It cannot prevent moisture

Laminated wood floors are not just suitable for damp spaces such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and outdoor areas. If moisture enters into the floor substratum, it may become a susceptible spot/area for fungus development or cause deformation (bending) of the floorboards. They are vulnerable to termite attack, thus suitable precautions must be performed. Safeguard the floor from standing water as well, as it can cause the HDF core layer to disintegrate and cause total surface area damage.

It is less expensive than other types of flooring as well. It is lighter in weight than genuine wood and stone floors, thus transportation costs are lower as well.

      It replicates the look of natural wood

Because laminate wood flooring is made of decorative material, you can select from a wide range of varieties, patterns, and colors. You can also choose from a variety of digitally produced wood species that may not be obtainable in the area or maybe banned owing to deforestation restrictions and regulations. As a result, there is a vast range of design options open to you.
