Laminate Floor Toronto
One obvious advantage is that of price; laminate flooring is typically half the cost of traditional hardwood flooring. Sometimes the savings are even greater, depending on the types of flooring in question. Additionally, laminate flooring is designed to be easy to install and is generally a good choice for most do-it-yourselfers, where solid hardwood requires a specific level of expertise. Installing laminate doesn’t involve nails, and more recently has done away with glue as well in many cases. Laminate flooring can therefore be installed fairly quickly and inexpensively. Laminate flooring is generally designed to be scratch-resistant and fade resistant, two areas where solid hardwood flooring is known to be more vulnerable.
When assessing laminate flooring, weigh each factor carefully against the price of the product and choose the highest grade you can afford, to ensure a good-looking, lasting laminate floor and the best value for your money.
Contrary to common belief, board thickness has no bearing on how well your laminate floor will hold up over time. In fact, it is the materials and methods used to manufacture the product and the quality of the embossing that makes for a beautiful, long wearing floor.
First of all, you need to consider the positive aspects of making the choice to place laminate flooring in your home.

This type of flooring is also very versatile, as the natural tones will go well with any type of décor that you choose. So, if you like to change your décor often, this will not be a problem, since the flooring will always look great.
