Hardwood Look-a-likes, do they work, are they good

As evidence suggests the trend has a leaning preference towards hardwood flooring, the real deal hardwood flooring. That doesn’t mean look-a-likes aren’t a thing too! They have many benefits of hardwood floors, but none of the negatives.

Look-A-Like floors don’t suffer from the same UV light problems and fade in the sun. Hardwood floors ( real hardwood ) will start to fade and degrade overtime if close to a window that allows natural light to hit it.

Look-A-Like floors don’t suffer from the same high price tag. In some cases you can get look-a-like floors for under $3 per square foot.

Look-A-Like floors don’t generally scratch like hardwood floors. They are more resilient to damage!

Look-A-Like floors are generally better suited for getting wet. Hardwood floors will start to damage when wet, look-a-like floors will too, but they can withstand much more water. They’re virtually waterproof.

Look-A-Like tile can be installed almost anywhere, not just on your floor.

Hardwood (Real Hardwood) flooring
