how come the negative laminate view?

14 years ago

We put our house on the market a couple weeks ago. We have had around 10 or so showings so far. We have gotten lots of positive feedback but the one thing that has come up 3-4 times is the complaint that we used laminate on the first floor instead of hardwood. Now we did not use cheap laminate and it looks beautiful and many people have thought it is wood. Many of the wood floors used in houses around here are just cheap builders grade oak, usually with lots of scuffs, gouges and nicks. So not sure why the laminate which in my experience has held up much better to pets and kids and high heels gets such a bad rap. I would choose it any day over most wood installs I have seen. Anyway I was just surprised this had come up as I thought our floors were an asset.
