It’s no surprise why so many homeowners in the greater Aurora, Newmarket, Richmond Hill area love the look of hardwood flooring. It gives any home a beautiful and timeless look, regardless of the color or type of wood. If solid hardwood flooring is out of your budget, or you’re interested in an alternative, then laminate hardwood flooring might be the perfect choice for your home! At Floor Coverings International of Aurora, ON, we are your local Aurora and Newmarket laminate hardwood flooring experts.
Laminate hardwood flooring blends the beauty of hardwood with the lasting value and easy maintenance of laminate. It is made from particle board topped with an imitation of wood grain to make it look like solid hardwood. Like solid hardwood, laminate comes in many different colors, sizes, textures, and more. This allows homeowners to select a hardwood that goes well with their personal taste and home décor. One difference between solid hardwood and laminate is the installation process. Laminate pieces snap or glue together for easy installation. Laminate can even be installed on top of concrete or old floors.
Pros of Laminate Hardwood Flooring

- Maintenance is simple. To clean, just sweep often to remove debris and wipe up any spills with a damp cloth.
