When choosing what kind of floor to install in your new retirement home at Old Mill Park there are many factors to consider. It is an important decision to make and before deciding you should consider your lifestyle, your budget and the decor of your home. If you have narrowed your choice between hardwood or laminate flooring, there are some things to consider. Hardwood floors are made from natural wood, they come in strips or planks and have a natural pattern unique to each one. They are very strong and durable and with proper maintenance and care can last up to a hundred years. Although hardwood is more expensive it can add real value to your home and save money in the long run. Some of the disadvantages of hardwood is that it is vulnerable to moisture so it is not for a bathroom or a room exposed to water often. They will lose their shine and will need to be waxed. Laminate flooring is a cheaper alternative to wood. There is a wide variety of styles and designs to choose from. Laminate is easy to maintain and requires no waxing or polishing. Laminate flooring is designed to withstand moisture and humidity as well as being more stain and damage resistant. Compared to a hardwood floor laminate flooring has a shorter life span, usually around 20 years. What type of flooring you choose is totally up to you. But the professionals at Solid Construction Services can explain in detail the differences and answer any questions you may have.
