A mistake that is commonly made is to believe that by covering your wooden floor with a good quality laminate or carpet will simply do the trick and save you money. Many have found this not to be the case and come up against certain issues that in the long run have proved to be rather costly to correct and time-consuming. Advantage one is that solid wood floors are incredibly durable. Installing laminate flooring can decrease the value of your home drastically and can often be just as expensive as or more costly than using a sander. Laminate flooring is less durable than solid wood floors therefore easily disfigured by moisture damage, scratches are much harder to remove and refinishing often does not improve or restore the laminate.
