High end resilient flooring (HERF) is one of the highly demanded flooring options for both the residential and commercial users of today. HERF comes in the local flooring industry three years ago as a strong substitute to traditional laminate flooring and wood parquet. And within this short span of three years, the number of residential projects soar when more home owners see the benefits of HERF.
3 best known benefits that makes up the majority of the reasons why home owners want to own high end resilient flooring today are as follows:
One common buying trend that we have seen over the past 3 years is that home owners are switching from existing traditional laminate flooring to high end resilient flooring for the reason that HERF is 100 per cent waterproof while laminate flooring is only water resistant. Because of its waterproof feature, the chances of HERF getting damaged by water, is almost zero; moreover, it makes HERF easy to be installed in wet areas such as the kitchen, the sanitary area and the basement where levels of humidity is at its high.
2) Easy Maintenance
For the 'lazy' homeowners like myself who does not really like to do much housework, high end resilient flooring might be the easiest flooring to maintain. But of course, we would recommend the home owners to wash and clean the flooring regularly for hygiene purposes. On the other hand, unlike parquet where after some years, you will see small gaps appearing in between the tiles or some tiles might sank in a little; this is where you may need to do some sanding and polishing to give the parquet flooring a new look. For HERF, you do not need to worry about that, the flooring will remain as it is when you first installed them in your home!
3) Cost Savings in the Long Run
High end resilient flooring help you save costs in the long run. As mentioned earlier, the maintenance costs will be greatly minimised. On the other hand, its strong dimensional stability and durability, gives the home owners more peace of mind as the flooring will not expand and contract so greatly to temperature changes to a point you will see gaps appearing. Another economical reason is that high end resilient flooring can be renewed easily. When the present home owner were to move home, he or she can actually 'bring along' the existing HERF to the new home as well. In this case, it helps to save the environment and most importantly save cost in the form of renovation cost for the home owner as well!
High end resilient flooring is still in its infancy. While more versions of HERF products starts to appear in the market. It is of the home owners' responsibility to do his or her due diligence in selecting the best quality high end resilient flooring for the home!
