High end resilient flooring (HERF) has been on a rising trend in local building and construction industry today; we have also seen an increase in demand for high end resilient floor among home owners and commercial property owners. Many of them viewed high end resilient floor as a substitute to traditional flooring such as laminate flooring, tiles and parquet, making it as the next big thing in flooring.
Just like laminate flooring, it has the same features such the designs and texture that looks and feels almost like real wood, and floating system that requires no glue during installation. It is also a cost efficient type of flooring that fits very well with new home owners' renovation budgets.
Then again, high end resilient floor is often seemed as an better alternative over laminate floor, here are some of the benefits it have.
High end resilient flooring is waterproof while laminate flooring is water resistant. Hence HERF can be installed in high humidity areas in the home such as the kitchen, dining and basement area.
2. No Underlays Needed
Unlike laminate flooring, high end resilient floor requires no underlay during installation. It will be fully attached to the solid sub floor, thus giving you a solid feel when walked on.
3. Better Sound Insulation
As mentioned above, HERF is fully installed to the subfloor hence it is "silent" as there will be no hollow sound when somebody walked on it, dropped something on it or do a heavy duty jump on it. Laminate floor will produce a high hollow sound due to its floating system. What it means to the owner is that your family members can sleeps soundly at home while you arrive home late at night.
4. Termite Proof
Compare to laminate floor that is made up of compressed wood, high end resilient flooring will have a relatively better proofing and barrier towards termite and other types of insects attacks.
5. Savings on Maintenance Costs
Home owners who have installed HERF, will see a huge amount of savings in the long term maintenance costs. This is because HERF is easy to wash and maintain; the owner also do not need to worry about the water damage and such.
High end resilient flooring is still at its beginning stage in the flooring market where there is still a limited number of designs and colors available in the market compared to laminate flooring in which the owner will have a wide range of design and colors to choose from. However, in the next few years down the road, as more home owners prefer flooring that looks clean and requires little or zero maintenance, high end resilient floors will definitely be one of the next big thing in the flooring industry someday.
