Critics of the laminate flooring industry often argue that laminate floors look artificial. The first floors that rolled out in the market during the early 80s may indeed have that obvious synthetic look. Yet technology has greatly increased since then. Now, laminate manufacturers have found a way to make laminate floors look real.
One of the realistic looking laminate floors out in the market are made by Westhollow. Relatively new to the laminate industry, Westhollow has nevertheless managed to capture the attention of homeowners across North America. The reason behind this is that Westhollow flooring, particularly their wood laminates, look and feel real.
What makes Westhollow wood laminate flooring is the fact that the manufacturer have found a revolutionary way to incorporate 90% wood into the finished laminate floor. Yes, that is right: Westhollow laminate floors are made from 90% wood. So, it is not surprising that it would look and feel exactly like real wood. It retains the natural and elegant pattern that is commonly found in wood floors. And here is another amazing thing with this company’s flooring: it feels exactly like wood.
Most homeowners are aware that wood floors cost. How about a flooring material made from 90% wood? Well, Westhollow wood laminates are affordable. You can buy hand-scrapped Westhollow oak wood flooring for as low as $1.49 per square foot. On the other hand, real hand-scrapped oak wood flooring costs about $5 per square foot.
But what about installation? If Westhollow laminate and wood floors are made from 90% wood, would it require professional installation? Well, the answer to that is a very big NO. Just like any other laminate, you can do the installation by yourself. You do not need to spend more than a thousand dollars to hire a floor installer. Even if you are not good with your hands, you can Google for easy-to-follow installation guides, or you can search YouTube for installation videos.
Another great thing with Westhollow floors is that they do not require the same maintenance needed for real wood floors. You do not have to buy waxes or floor buffers. You can just clean their floors with a clean cloth.
Saving a lot of money is not the only thing that you will get with Westhollow floors. You can also be assured that they are of superior quality.

Skeptics may argue that if Westhollow wood laminates are made from 90% wood, then it would necessarily follow that Westhollow’s floors will suffer from the common affliction of wood floors: fading. The argument may sound logical. But it is definitely fallacious. Why? Because, just like other floor, their laminates are virtually resistant from fading.
So, Westhollow makes flooring that is affordable, realistic, durable, and safe. But is it stylish? Absolutely! They have a fantastic collection of chic floors that will certainly enhance the beauty of your home.
