Manufacturers and retailers are constantly telling you how laminate flooring is an excellent material – it can be used directly on concrete in the basement, it acts as a floating floor, it is made of hardwood. More flexible, cheaper than flooring, and the list goes on. At first glance, it seems that laminate flooring may actually be a good choice. However, in this case it seems to be fraudulent, and there are many things about the pieces that you may not like.
First of all, while it can be used directly on concrete in the basement because it is less affected by moisture, it is not the only choice. You can seal the concrete in your basement with the commonly available product from the Home Depot, so that moisture does not pass through, which will allow you to stick to the bottom of the real wood floor (or whatever you want). ۔
Laminate flooring is usually laid down in a floating floor installation. It seems easy to install, but it has flaws. First of all, it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Unlike hardwood floors that can be easily fitted together, many laminate floors must first be fitted at a certain angle (45 degrees or more), then flattened. Getting it down the drain isn’t always easy, and certainly not when you’re near the wall or trying to get the material under the door jambs. Also, no one likes the feeling of a floating floor. Parts of it are not naturally flat against the subfloor, so it feels hollow and unnecessary. In my opinion, this is the biggest flaw of the laminate flooring.
I was amazed at how easily the crumbling floors eroded after being told so many times how hard they were. Just moving a light piece of furniture left a huge, deep scratch that can’t be healed.
Lastly, laminate flooring is not necessarily cheaper than hardwood flooring. I was able to get solid wood flooring at almost the same price per square foot ($ 2) on sale from Home Depot, so given all of the above concerns, I never saw any reason to re-use the laminate.
