Carpeting is popular, generally speaking because it’s often more durable and much easier to clean than other flooring materials. The most significant advantage of carpeting at the low price point is its very low viscosity, making it softer and more comfortable to walk on. Choosing a material that’s easy on your feet means that you can walk around in a home with no shoes or boots on.
Laminate flooring can be an attractive alternative to carpet. It has a more contemporary design while offering the same durability features as carpeting. While laminate flooring is made from various materials, it is usually made from a combination of plywood and plastic. It’s a good choice for those who don’t want to pay to redo their floors every five or so years, especially in high traffic areas.
Hardwood Laminate Flooring
Another popular alternative is hardwood laminate flooring. It mimics the look of wood, but it’s typically less expensive than hardwood flooring, making it a good choice for people on a budget. Laminated floors also have similar durability features as carpets and vinyl. The advantage of laminated flooring over hardwood is that it is thinner, making it easier to work with. It’s also less prone to scratches.

When picking out your flooring, it’s important to think about the potential for moisture damage. For instance, if you live in a humid climate, you should not choose materials like vinyl or linoleum that are prone to absorbing and retaining moisture. Laminate flooring is also not as durable as hardwood because moisture can damage it. We test for moisture levels in the subfloor and recommend a moisture barrier to prevent moisture from seeping through the flooring.
