At CFC, we generally avoid laminate flooring.
The main differences between engineered timber flooring and laminates:
Veneer – Laminate flooring has a veneer of 0.5mm of real timber, Engineered flooring has 0.6-6mm. Our Engineered timbers have a minimum of 3mm on the veneer. If you damage a laminate floor, the core is exposed; if you damage engineered timber, you can repair/sand back the damage and recoat the flooring to make it last longer. The thin veneer on Laminate flooring is not enough.
Core – the core of Laminate flooring is a high density fibreboard (HDF), whereas Engineered timber has a plywood core. Moisture is a big concern with timber flooring, as it swells the boards and can cause an uneven finish when the timber expands. HDF is much more absorbent than the plywood cores of Engineered timber; a lot of manufacturers will include wax on the joining mechanism of the boards to improve water resistance, as well as mixing it through the plywood core.
Laminate flooring is cheaper than Engineered timber; you do not get the quality for the price. We do not work with laminate flooring, or any kind of flooring we believe will cause issues for our customers instead of providing a good quality and beautiful floor that suits our customers needs and desires.
